New! Robot substitutes and other features for TDs

BBO server was just upgraded and includes some cool new features for virtual clubs and tournament hosts.

What’s new:

  • Robot Substitutes. Any tournament director can now replace a player with a robot, by using: Substitute Blah with robot. They can also replace the robot with a human.
  • Extended “Chat to Tournament” functionality.
    • When a tournament director sends Chat to Tournament before the tournament starts, the chat now goes to all players registered in that tournament, even if they are no longer in the tournament lobby.
    • Similarly, after the tournament has ended, Chat to Tournament goes to all players who completed the tournament, even if they are no longer in the tournament lobby.
  • Fixed the bug where star players were unable to join ACBL tournaments restricted to ACBL members only.
  • Other numerous small tweaks, bug fixes and improvements.

We remain committed to improving the site and the virtual play experience for all new clubs who took refuge here, as well as for our faithful long time BBO members. Thank you all for your patience during these difficult times.
