Usually when you submit a tournament, it runs once and that's it. The tournament system also has options for Level 12+ organizers to schedule the tournament multiple times, and even has ways to roll over profits (entry fees less prizes) for those tournaments that generate income.
The system supports the following repetition modes, and variants of these modes:
- Every 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 or 12 hours
- Every 1, 2, 3 or 7 days
- The 1st (or 2nd, 3rd, etc.) day of each month
- The 1st and 3rd (or 2nd and 4th) Sunday (or Monday, Tuesday, etc.) of each month
- The 1st (or 2nd, 3rd, etc.) Sunday (or Monday, Tuesday, etc.) of each month
- The last (or 2nd to last, 3rd to last, etc.) Sunday (or Monday, Tuesday, etc.) of each month
- The last (or 2nd to last, 3rd to last, etc.) day of each month
Tournaments can repeat a set number of times, in which case it will compute cost-to-fund using a simple multiplication, or "until Bitcoins run out." When the "Until Bitcoins run out" repetition type is used, you also have the option of rolling leftover funds from one tournament into the next one's percent-based Prize Hoppers.
Finally, you can multiply any tournaments scheduled using methods above by duplicating these at different time offsets. This is useful for creating tournaments that run occasionally (say, once per month), but should run 3 times that day to accommodate players from different time zones.
All of these offsets are computed based on the time and date of the initial tournament, entered into the Sumbit Tournament dialog.
