Doubts about adding eSports events

Fri Mar 15, 2019 7:06 pm

Hi Zag,

I was thinking in adding some events to the eSports section as it's still empty, but I have some doubts:

The leagues created are game-based instead of real game leagues. Do you want to add the all the events on this way or do you prefer to create individual real leagues?

For example, for League of Legends, here you can see some of them that currently are running (there're some more):

League of Legends Championship Series
League of Legends European Championsip
League of Legends Champions Korea
League of Legends Pro League
League of Legends Master Series

For all of these leagues are available their relative league badge, website, etc... All this info is also available for other games such as:

Call of Duty
Fortnite
PUBG
Apex Legends
Artifact
Gears of War
Halo
NBA 2K
Paladins
Rocket League
Siege
SMITE


What do you think? Do you want to group all events under one game-league of split them into real current leagues?

If you prefer to group them all in one-game league, I suggest to change the way to enter the events from "soccer" event template into "fighting" event template. On that way, you can name the event indicating this info. For example: "LCS Spring Season: Optic Gaming vs CLG" or "TCL Winter Season: Team AURORA vs Dark Passage"


Awaiting your comments! :)

Hmm yes I hadnt really looked at it until now.

I think we should use one single league as the same teams compete in them all I think?


EDIT: Well if they are different teams then I guess we can go seperate...

OK I added all the international LOL leagues and their respective teams, lets start from there and see if it works.

Amazing how many teams there are already!

After adding some events, I think that for eSports is better to create the events on the same way that we currently do for boxing as there are a huge number of leagues and events for the same game and this will "force" us to create a lot of leagues for same game.

I think that will be easier for all to only create leagues by game (League of Legends, FIFA, Fornite, NBA 2K, Call of Duty, etc) and then the events on the same as we currently do for boxing.

I created the first event with this new mode for testing in "Fortnite" and when you try to acces it to edit/view it, it turns this error:

Code: Select all

 Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined method ezSQL_mysqli::sql_return_on_error() in C:\inetpub\thesportsdb\forum\phpbb\session.php:1580 Stack trace: #0 C:\inetpub\thesportsdb\forum\includes\functions.php(4995): phpbb\session->update_session_infos() #1 C:\inetpub\thesportsdb\forum\includes\functions.php(4083): page_header('Information') #2 [internal function]: msg_handler(512, 'You have an err...', 'C:\\inetpub\\thes...', 272, Array) #3 C:\inetpub\thesportsdb\includes\ez_sql_mysqli.php(272): trigger_error('You have an err...', 512) #4 C:\inetpub\thesportsdb\includes\ez_sql_core.php(164): ezSQL_mysqli->query('SELECT * FROM t...') #5 C:\inetpub\thesportsdb\event.php(163): ezSQLcore->get_row('SELECT * FROM t...') #6 {main} thrown in C:\inetpub\thesportsdb\forum\phpbb\session.php on line 1580
