Yes you can. Go to the [Find a Tournament] button and use the popup to search for your clan war using one of the search criteria in the popup. When the list comes up, you click [Select] to insert your tournament name into the game finder page. You can then modify the rest of the Game Finder page just like you did in the past: by game label and/or by game status. Then click Search. It'll work. If you still can't figure it out, you're going to have to post the name of the tournament so people can figure out if there is a bug. You can't just say it doesn't work without specifics, because as far as we know, it does work.


I followed your instructions, and hit "select" and it does nothing to the game finder page. Am I supposed to have BOB installed?

This is a site feature, not a BOB feature. You have to provide more information than just saying it's not working. What war? What browser? The only thing it should be doing is putting the name of the tournament onto the game finder page. It doesn't automatically start looking up the games.

I get the same error from my work PC, running IE8. I'll successfully search for a tournament but when I hit the "select" link, I get an "Error on page" message on the bottom left and it never adds that tournament to the main game finder screen.

At home, I have no problem pulling the tournament into game finder using Firefox/BOB when I hit the "select" link.

Yep, it's a problem with IE8 at least, but probably all IE versions, bug report was created:

This is a poor implementation of a solution to a simple problem, I am sorry to say.

Not only does it permanently break some scripts it is unwieldy and not how all the other sites on the internet do this.
If you want I can discuss how it should be done (will also achieve your goal of lightening the page load without opening a new window)

Major opposition to this change from most people on here including mods , this cannot stay like this a different system is needed.

i dont think i have ever seen people complain about game finder taking too long to load so the pageload can only be on the sites end isnt there a way to make it more efficent,taking out finished tourneys from the drop box would reduce it by a good bit. if that isnt good enough then can the dropbox w/active tourney be put into tourney tab then linked from game finder so people can follow it and get game numbers without that stupid pop up that we have now. i dont know much about this tech stuff so maybe a better solution can be suggested but i do know this cannot stay the same.

UPDATE

The popup tournament finder now works in Internet Explorer.

I also made it easier to figure out how it works by removing extra links.

Please note that we originally got rid of the huge dropdows because users, Tournaments and Tech Team mods complained about it and requested something better. We also consulted the Tournament Directors on all solutions before launching them. It is tricky to find something that is efficient and pleases everyone but we will continue to monitor input from all directions and possibly make further changes to come up with the best solution.

I was one of the loudest complainers, so I feel obligated to say something positive. I understand that the changes were a response to our complaints, and I appreciate that you've been working hard to come up with a solution. And before I go on, I want to stress that this is one of the most stable web-based games I've ever seen and overall I really enjoy it and I'm happy with 98% of it.

I do not think the current solution to the Game Finder/Tournament window is correct, and I really hope you consider my suggestion. Which is:
There should be two pull-downs, of the same type as the original Tournament pull-down.
One should be for current/ongoing tournaments, the other for historical/completed tournaments. (The latter could be replaced by the pop-up that you have now.)
There should be a two-choice radio button beside these two pull-downs, which toggles between them.
The default is "current" which is what is probably used 95% of the time or better. When this button is selected (in its default position) then the Ongoing Tournaments pull-down is active and the other one is not. By selecting "historical" a user de-activates the Ongoing Tournaments pull-down and enables the other one.

I hope my persistent complaints about this issue have not overshadowed the fact that I love this site and am a big supporter of most of the things you've done. =D>

but there was someyhing way better than this crappy solution ,qwerts suggestion to split it into active and finished.like dukasaur said 2 drop boxes are a solution.active tourneys in one and a pop up for finished in another.no pop up for active as it is really annoying to have it the way it is now.

it seems the request was denied as something better didnt happen.

well if you split like i suggest,then your problem with large number of tournament will be solve,because you will constatly get aprohimately 500-600 tournament in list, so you will remove over 4000 tournament from list(move to finished button) and your problem will be solve efective.
I realy dont understand why you dont even to try these option, and to see how will these working.

I usually appreciate the updates that are done and hardly complain about them but this update is horrible for tournament organisers. CC should support one its most dedicated communities - the tournament organisers - but instead a selfish update has been made that does not serve and benefit TOs nor does it seem to make anything else good for the whole community. Such a shame!
