Recurring Tourney Date on Recurring Days

Postby Honolua » Mon Apr 07, 2014 2:44 pm

Date does not change on recurring tourneys when registering in the player client to current date and shows the past date or date of creation.

When setting a tourney, say like every Saturday night at 7 pm, I am forced to put in a full date. With this method, when a player registers for the tourney on that DAY, like a week later, the game client shows the start time as the original DATE, instead of just the time that DAY.

i.e,
I set my Saturday Night Special tourney on April 1, 2014 at 7pm. I set the recurrence to 1080 minutes to show up for the next Saturday night game.

A week goes by from that date and the Sat tourney is online to register, when selecting that tourney, it shows the entire date of last week, which is confusing the player.

Local Start Time: 2014-04-01 07:00 pm, except that today's date (next Saturday) is actually 2014-04-07.

Would be nice to be able to show the DAY in the tourney info, instead of all these numbers and make the occurrence, change to the day of registration instead of the 1st date of the tourney.

Also, in the admin area, all choice of the date display, like the default as listed above, or as something like (day) Saturday, (date) April 7, (time) 07:00 pm, where the date automatically changes for the current date instead of showing the past creation date.

I meant to write 10080 minutes for weekly occurring, not 1080, but I could not edit my post.

I'm unable to duplicate this. I just created a tournament with a start time a few minutes later than the current time and recur minutes set to 10080 (1 week). When the tournament started, the date for that immediately changed from 2014-04-07 to 2014-04-14 in the client.

Note that if your site is offline when a tournament is set to start, the date does not update because the code that handles that is triggered by the start of the tournament (which never occurred). Was that true in your case?

Ahhhh, yes, your probably right Kent.

I see that if a tourney does not start or is offline when it is supposed to start, because it never started, the date stays the same.

Sorry about that.

I've added a check for the next update so that if you attempt to put a tournament online with an expired Start Time, it will warn you.
