GH Esports Road Map
On the topic of our road map we wanted to give you guys an update about where we are currently at with out Organization and features we are planning on and working towards both with the website, tournaments, prizes, etc. If after reading this you have any additional feedback or suggestions for us please let us know as we can always improve upon ourselves.



Website


In regards to our website, this website marks the launch of our Beta version 2.0 of our live site. It offers some extensive features that are noticeable improvements right away. Some of these features for teams are: 

  • Team Captains managing rosters within the site itself via an Captain's panel
  • Personalized stats unique to each player within the tournaments
  • Personalized articles regarding deeper player analysis and/or power-rankings
  • Automated VOD's from matches that are easily linked and accessible within the match itself on our site.

In addition to the amazing features it offers players, it also offers some noticeable improvements for League staff. Some of these improvements are: 

  • An updated domain for our organization
  • Automated schedule, standings, and season generation
  • Automatic account linking for player's League accounts and OP.gg's
  • Improved mobile website interface 
  • Overall improved website flow.

These features hopefully allow for some ease of use for both players and staff for the remained of our current tournament and for future tournaments. However, it doesn't have all of the features we are wanting to provide for player within our league. Some of the additional features we are working on and have in mind are:

  • Free-Agency database where teams are able to easily access players who are available, contact them, and add them to their team within the site.
  • Full Player Trading Interface and Functionality
  • Integrated Payment System for future tournament entry fees.



Tournaments


Currently our tournament's that we offer are limited to 1: The GH Minor's Tournament. It is a free 16 team, plat and under, 2 division, double-round robin tournament. This tournament will be getting modified in the future. The updated format for this tournament, and all GH Tournaments, going forward will be:

  • 10 Teams
  • Plat & Under*
  • 1 Division
  • Top 6 go to playoffs
  • Single Round Robin

*This factor will vary by tournament level

Right now we are exploring the realm of doing paid tournaments with the GH Major's tournament with it having a $25 entry fee and a prize pool. Currently it has not shown enough to demand to warrant doing it; however, we will be pushing to always expand into that realm and as demand grows our plans for the future are the following tournaments and formats:


GH Minor's Blue

  • 10 Teams
  • No Entry Fee/Prize Pool
  • Plat & Under 
  • 1 Division
  • Top 6 go to playoffs
  • Single Round Robin


GH Minor's Gold

  • 10 Teams
  • No Entry Fee/Prize Pool
  • Plat & Under
  • 1 Division
  • Top 6 go to playoffs
  • Single Round Robin


GH Major's

  • 10 Teams
  • $25 Entry Fee/$150 Prize Pool
  • Plat & Under 
  • 1 Division
  • Top 6 go to playoffs
  • Single Round Robin


GH Master's

  • 10 Teams
  • $100 Entry Fee/$600 Prize Pool
  • Diamond + Masters Ranks
  • 1 Division
  • Top 6 go to playoffs
  • Single Round Robin


GH Open

  • 10 Teams
  • $250 Entry Fee/$1,500 Prize Pool
  • Open to all Ranks
  • 1 Division
  • Top 6 go to playoffs
  • Single Round Robin


The above tournaments would be our future expansion based upon demand. As we expand into larger tournaments more robust features would become available such as paid casters, more discord server features and more giveaways. All Entry Fees are used to sustain and support the league.



Organization


Right now as you know it is currently just Nathan (Gnome) and Chase (Sturdy Ghost) running the league. Depending on demand the organization will be expanding as well to meet this demand. Everything about our organization is built with players and staff in mind, we want to ensure casters have a safe and friendly environment, and that players are able to receive constructive feedback and not be exposed to high levels of toxicity. That said possible future staff members would be:

  • Players Director (represents and advocates the wants of individual players within the league)
  • Teams Director (represents and advocates the wants of organizations/teams within the league)
  • Server Moderator
  • Production Director
  • Additional Casters (Both PBP and Color)
  • Tournament Director (maintains and manages a specific tournament)

That said again any future development will be handled based on demand and desire of players. We want everyone to feel as if they have a say and that the community and organization reflects the wants and desires of said players.

If you have any questions, concerns or feedback please let us know!
