Tournament Entry Requirements

Create entry requirement lists to filter the players that can enter (and/or view) your competition.

Overview

  1. Use the Admin API to define requirement lists.
  2. Use the GameOn Console or Admin API to attach the entry requirement list to the tournament.
  3. In the Game API, include player attributes in the Enter Tournament request, so that the player will be accepted into the tournament.

Example
