The primary benefit of configuring games is to organize ladders and tournaments and also to display a thumbnail on ladder and tournament pages corresponding to a game.
The game list page displays each game created and matching the given filter. The uploaded thumbnail is displayed as well as the total number of ladder and tournament events.
You can filter the game list by specifying the parameter platform in the URL. For example, if you had three games with Platform set to PC, and another two games with Platform set to XBOX, specifying a URL similar to the below will list only the three PC games:
It isn't necessary to provide platform in the URL. Using this technique provides the ability to create specific menu links which will retrieve games filtered by the specified platform.
