I am looking for an individual, or a group of individuals, who can design, code, and maintain a high traffic gaming website, specifically for league of legends. Players will buy 'tokens' to enter various tournaments and compete for cash prizes. If you are not familiar with League of Legends, I suggest you familiarize yourself with this RTS style game before applying for this position.
**After the project is done, you will not be offered a stake in the company but you will be on a weekly salary to help maintain any changes we may need.**
**This is a very advanced position, please do not big unless you are capable of doing everything below**
The website will function as a service where individuals can register individually to the website (linked up with a forum - preferably Vbulletin) and create or join an existing team. Users will then be able to invite others to their team and enter into tournaments based off of the 'token' they purchase. Each player will have to individually purchase a token and all 5 members of the team must have the same token to enter a tournament. There will be 3 tiers of tournaments, each with different cash prizes with various token costs to enter (Obviously the higher Tier's are going to cost more to enter). You need to be able to develop a system where individuals purchase the tokens, select which tournament best fits them and their time schedules, then move the team into the appropriate bracket for the tournament (32 teams per tournament). There will also be tokens for 'Random Pick', wherein we will hold tournaments for different game-types of the game.
A system will be needed where cash can automatically be sent equally to all 5 winners of the team upon winning a tournament. I would prefer an automated system because the traffic is going to be very high. Winners will receive the cash into their account from which they can choose to have it sent to PayPal, buy more tokens, or purchase items from our store.
League of Legends is hosted on it's own servers, so if there is a system to automatically pull the winners from the database and move them forward or out of the bracket after the game that would be wonderful. Frankly, I'm not sure if it's possible. If it's not, players will be directed to the forum where it will show their match-up and the teams can talk amongst themselves to set up a time to play. Teams will check in after the game to declare the winner, and the winner will advance into the next day. The process will repeat until a winner is chosen. Once a system is chosen
Each team should have a win/loss ratio by their name on our ladder-ranking page. Since players will be able to create new teams and join new teams, there should be a 'Team Ranking' ladder page as well as an 'Individual Ranking' ladder page. Their win/loss ratio should be updated on this page. (This page is not for a specific tournament, it's for the regular players to be recognized). When you click on the team or player, it should link to the biography. Each user and team must be able to have a short biography, fun facts to fill in, pictures of themselves, and other various things for people to keep up with.
There must be a system to stream the finals games on the main page ([url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view] are acceptable outlets).
This is a long project and I am aware it is going to be very costly. If you are an AMAZING designer and coder (or you know one or the other) let's get to work immediately. You will be paid in small increments while progressing and receive the final amount upon total completion. Keep in mind we would love to have you stay on board on a salary to maintain the website.
Mediocrity is not an option and I will not accept anything but excellence. Http://[url removed, login to view] is a good example of a look that I am into. There will be many more functions for the website, but I wanted to keep this as short as possible. Please link your portfolios so I can view your work. We are expecting over 100,000 active members
**It is very important that you are willing to join our team on salary upon completion of the website - we would love to have the same person, or team, continue with us and maintain the website to accommodate changes - you will be compensated very fairly.
**EDIT** Would like to add that the visual aspect of this site is huge. We are prepared to pay what it costs to have the absolte best design work. This is a MUST. Please WOW me with a Photoshop skills in your portfolio. http://www.leagueoflegends.com is the website we are hosting the tournaments for.
