November 2020 Changelog

New experimental features

  • Region locking – Enabling this tournament feature will only allow registration from countries you specify.
  • Require email verification – Turn this on to require participants to register their email addresses prior to joining your tournament. This ensures they’ll receive match notifications and private messages, plus it helps weed out abuse from people with too much free time.
  • APIv2 – Currently in private alpha testing and arriving during the first half of 2021!


  • User blocking – In addition to blocking private messages, people you block will now be blocked from registering for your tournaments. You can set up your blocked users at

  • EXIF data is now being stripped from all image uploads
  • We tightened up our token expiry for improved account security
  • We resolved a temporary issue with properly flagging new Premier subscriber accounts
