Tournament Directors (TDs)
What is a tournament director?

Tournament Directors (TDs) are volunteers who actually create and administer tournaments. TDs are provided with a given set of tournament system utilities that allow them to perform their duties. TDs work closely with the Head TDs on their League so that they are aware of the overall tournament setup and specific tournament rules on that Ladder. The TDs responsibilities include scheduling tournaments, administering tournaments to ensure that they run smoothly and finish in a timely manner, and settling any match disputes that occur during tournaments.

Do tournament directors get paid for hosting tournaments?

Tournament Directors are volunteers who donate their time to the League, managing tournaments in order to make things more fun for everyone participating. They are not paid any money for their time, so it is important to remember that and show them the respect and appreciation they are due for all of their time and effort! In an attempt to show our gratitude to the TDs for all of their hard work, we do reward them with LadderBux for hosting tournaments.

What is a Head TD?

Head TDs are the second level tier in our Tournament program. Overall, they act as the general tournament system coordinator on their Ladder. The Head TDs are responsible for keeping the TDs on their team organized and united towards the end goal of all TDs: keeping the Ladder and Tournaments fun and fair for everyone participating. Their duties mainly consist of coordinating the Tournament Directors on their League so that the tournament schedule runs smoothly and keeps the players' options open for plenty of tournament competition.

What is a TD Manager?

TD Manager is a position for Official Case's Ladders. There is no equivalent for MyLeagues, because the Head Admin has all of the necessary TD Manager powers on their Head TD account.

I applied to become a TD and was told I am on the waiting list. What does that mean?

Unfortunately, there is a waiting list to become a Tournament Director on most Leagues. If you want more details about how long you will be on the waiting list, you should contact your Admin team.
