Words can’t express enough how grateful The Online Arcade is for all the support we’ve received in 2017. As promised we plan to deliver as much content as possible in the upcoming year. We want to be as open as possible when it comes to sharing out our announcements or updates to everyone that participates within these tournaments.
One thing we would like to do is lessen the wait time for a lot of these upcoming tournaments. In order to do that, we created a general rules guide for all current and new participants for The Online Arcade.
The Online Arcade General Rules:
- Check ins are mandatory for participation in every TOA tournament. No Check in means no participation! (If you have issues checking in, lets us know!!!)
- Depending on the tournament all participants (new or old) must write their PSN ID, CFN ID, or Gamertag in the Discussion Tab.
- Read the description for each tournament before signing up/checking in.
- Key Factors are crucial for every tournament. If broken by a player, the penalty will be a game lost within a match towards that player.
- All participants must be ready for their matches when called upon(Invites). There will only be a 5 minute grace period. If the player is not there in the respected time, that is considered a loss.
- It is a requirement to have a active E-mail address, so you can get the proper notifications from the Challonge website.
- No Wi-Fi!! Must have a stable wired connection. (These are online tournaments)
- All TOA tournaments will be Double Elimination.
We created multiple social media pages to make things as easy as possible for all our participants and viewers. Being transparent as possible with our community is a goal we plan on executing here at The Online Arcade. These pages are solely dedicated to updating you on tournaments, news, and any questions you may have for us.

One of our biggest moves is the transition over to Twitch. The channel is still a working progress but we plan on staying committed by having all of The Online Arcade tournaments will be streamed on twitch in 2018. Our goal is to achieve 75 to 100 followers by the end of the year, so we can try and claim a Twitch partnership. As the Twitch channel grows, we can provide more tournaments within the year and also have more giveaways for our supporters.
Here is a brief video on our progress:
