Over the past few weeks since releasing the ezLeague gaming league script, there have been 50+ bug fixes and new features implemented, with the most recent being the kick team from league feature. This functionality has been added to the admin panel, and will allow admins to grant a season-long suspension to a given team in a given league.
When kicking a team from a league, the admin must confirm and provide a detailed explanation as to why this team is being suspended from the league. That detailed reason will then be emailed to the team’s admin user, whom in turn is responsible for notifying the rest of their team with this information.
Suspending a team from a league is a very serious action, and should only be done when it is absolutely necessary. When a team is suspended, all of their future matches will be forfeited, and marked as losses for the suspended team, and a win for whichever team they would have been facing. This action is not reversible, and when the league season has come to an end, it is up to the site admins to lift the suspension of that team. Once the suspension has been lifted, no other action is needed to take place.
Besides the kick & suspend team feature, support has also been added for the Mandrill App, which is a free SMTP email service. This is a great new feature in ezLeague because the Mandrill service will handle all email related functionality within the ezLeague gaming league script. Once the site has been updated, the admin can create their very own free Mandrill account, and add those settings in ezLeague.
At this point, the ezLeague gaming league script has climbed to version 3.3.3, with more future updates still to come. If there is a feature you would like to see added, please head to the GitHub Issues page, and post your feature suggestion. Since ezLeague has entered the stable release stage, that means in the near future paid licensing will be available for the ezLeague gaming league script. More information to be posted shortly about paid licensing.
