In version 2.16, we added support for a new kind of challenge labeled “Blind” challenge. In a regular challenge, one competitor on a ladder chooses another competitor on a ladder, a time for the match, and then clicks send. In a Blind challenge, the challenger doesn’t directly choose anyone specifically to challenge. He or she just chooses a time to play a match and creates the challenge. The challenge list and challenge details will hide the challenger from users until the match has been accepted.
You enable this feature when you create the ladder by selecting “Enable” from the “Blind Challenge” drop down. You may also edit an existing ladder to enable this feature.
Once the challenge has been accepted, the challenger’s identity is revealed and an email notification is sent out. A future update may likely toggle the hidden nature of the challenge, but there is currently no timetable for this. Hit me up @Tournamatch or the comments section below and let me know your thoughts! We’re interested to know how we can further tweak this feature.
