Site Improvements

The new site is now more responsive and a number of issues users found when using browsers other than Chrome have been sorted out.

The ACGL homepage now houses more content and quick links to selected tournaments.

Much of the profile and team management has now been simplified and options made clearer for users. Players can be members of multiple teams at once.

The tournament management has seen the addition of competitor score reporting and teams and team members able to communicate with their opponents via their profile page.

There are a couple of videos are available to show new (and even veteran) users how to navigate around the site and use the various features.

There are more updates and additions promised in the future as any issues and requests come to light.

In the meanwhile, head over to the site and sign up or get your entry in for the giveaway.

Tournament scheduling now returns to ‘normal’

South Africa, 18th April 2017 – Thanks to the feedback of tournament participants and community members, as well as our drive to constantly improve user satisfaction, a number of updates have now been implemented on our tournament site.

Improvements to the site include a more responsive design and better compatibility with all internet browsers. Users will now find the management of their profiles, teams and clans simpler. Features such as joining and leaving teams are now much clearer and easier.

The homepage now offers more information and content, as well as simpler navigation to current and featured tournaments. For tournaments, users can now submit their match scores directly on the site. Communication between competing teams and players can now be done on each other’s profile page.

With the site relaunch we will operate a number of tournaments across multiple titles and platforms including the addition of Rocket League. These will continue until 30 April as we prepare for the start of season two in our rolling tournament series. We are also celebrating our relaunch with a giveaway that will go to one of our supporters.

The upcoming tournaments are:

  • 20 April: Halo 5 2v2 (Xbox)

Over the coming weeks we still have a number of exciting announcements as well as the addition of some more features to the site. We will be introducing leagues, an app, an extensive content plan and a more.

We will continue to work on site and operational improvements, and should users have any suggestions we are open to hear them. Should the local community have requests for titles to be hosted, you are welcome to make contact and we will certainly consider it.

Please note that while testing was done before the site went live, there is likely to still be some bugs and we would appreciate feedback from users so that we can attend to them as quickly as possible.
