Design an eSports user experience

Kilpailun tehtävänanto

This competition is for you to show us what you would do to improve the User Experience of http://battlefy.com.

We are looking for both experience designs as well as an explanation of why you have made key decisions. Although we love looking at beautiful work, unfortunately you will not win the competition unless you can explain both “the what” and “the why”.

Background

Battlefy is building the platform for major game studios, publishers, brands, and eSports organizations to create, market, and scale tournaments and leagues. Check out our integration with League of Legends! The growth in this one game alone has been amazing; with 100 million+ players each month, the market opportunities are endless.

Since launching in January 2014, we have grown 2496%. Of the 10,973 tournaments we have powered, you will recognize many of the industry’s leading organizations including Blizzard’s World Championship Series Qualifiers, League of Legends Collegiate Championships, Ubisoft’s Road2Paris, Dreamhack, Fragbite Masters, and the Australian Cyber League.

What is the scope?

Please investigate the following flows:-

1. As a tournament organizer, from the Battlefy homepage register and create a tournament that requires team play (e.g. League of Legends), then use the share features of the tournament to publicize the event.

2. As a team captain use one of the links to the tournament you have created in order to join the tournament. This will also take you through a registration process. Once you are registered, create your team and invite other players to join the team.

3. As a team captain, check your team into the tournament you have joined and once the tournament starts, use the bracket to score report your matches.

4. As an organizer, captain and player view and edit your personal and team profiles

The above are key flows. There are many variations of these in the product so please feel free to explore once you have the basics.

Our users are predominantly organizations that run tournaments, captains and players who play in them and the fans that watch the matches. They use PCs, tablets and mobile phones and are spread all over the globe.

We support a broad set of user needs with a comprehensive & advanced feature-set including automated score reporting, free agent and team support (including persistent teams) and chat all through the same Web UI.

What are the deliverables?

We are looking for deliverables that are practical rather than purely conceptual. We need to be able to take these designs, produce final mockups (if needed) and then implement them.

We'd like you to decide how much of the site you wish to tackle, at a minimum we suggest that you look at the key flows outlined above. For sure you can produce sketches, mockups, wireframes, documents and whatever you think you need to do in order to convey both your experience design and your experience design decisions.

Additionally please feel free to ask questions and make this interactive. We don't expect you to design something in complete isolation and we'll do our best to answer any questions within 24 hours.

    Thank you for inviting me to the contest sir, I wanna ask a question; do you want to redesign the website or you want to simplify using the website through a new design ?

      I am most interested in how to improve the usability of the website to enable the various users to carry out the activities that I mention in the brief. For this competition I am not really concerned with production art, art direction or creative direction. I am very interested in flow, information architecture, content taxonomy / hierarchy etc. If that means a redesign then that's OK if it does not mean a redesign then again that's OK!

      For sure our website is focussed at the moment on a more specific group of people, namely Organizers of eSports. This can make the terminology and the user interaction unfamiliar to a broader audience. Interested to hear what your ideas are regarding changing this approach.

    May I know more about the characteristics of the audience/target users(the captain,organizer,etc)? For example, their average age, their most-likely personality (business-oriented or athlete oriented), etc. I believe your website has a very specific target other than average people and knowing about their characteristics is the first step for UX. Thanks

      We tend to appeal to the more serious players by the very fact that our software allows people to run and participate in eSports competitions! Captains and Organizer can often be more business focussed, but to be honest there are plenty of players that are serious, especially as it is possible to have a career as a player (same as in traditional sports).

      Our software has more Organizer focussed features than features relating to other types of user e.g. Players and Captains. This is because we initially started by building a platform that could help Organizers.
