Discord Tournament Direction Overview

Welcome to the guide for directing a quizbowl tournament on Discord. By the end of this guide, you should have the ability to carry out the following tasks:

  1. Create a Discord server for hosting your tournament.
  2. Invite staffs, players, and coaches to the server, then add them to the appropriate tournament roles.
  3. Create the schedules and links to packets/scoresheets for your staffers.
  4. Run a tournament where moderators, players, and coaches join a video call to engage in virtual quizbowl matches. The moderators read the questions, the players type “buzz” to buzz in.
  5. Manage your staffers, make sure teams get to their new rooms each round, make sure stats are collected, create new schedules for playoffs.
  6. Enforce a welcoming environment adhering to PACE’s code of conduct.

Please read the guide before announcing your tournament, so you know what to expect and what resources are available.
