I finally managed to be able to replicate this. If there is only 1 user in the join queue, the tournament won't start because there is only 1 player. Autostart only checks to start the tournament once, so if there's only 1 player in the join queue at the end of the autostart timer, it just won't ever autostart. I can think of three solutions to this:A tournament autostart didn't kick in properly. VGC's roombot started a tournament and set autostart to be two minutes, which seems to have gone through, but it didn't actually start the tournament; eventually, a room staff member manually started it. This happened June 24th in the VGC room.
[12:34:35] (The tournament auto start timer was set to 2 by BoTTT III)
The manual start didn't occur until a while later, because no one noticed I guess. The logs don't indicate if a staff member manually starts the tournament, it seems, but it was a manual start in this case.
- Automatically start the room tour on the next player joining.
- Automatically end the tour (if only 1 player showed up, it's probably not going to generate much further players)
- Automatically apply another tour autostart (if that even works).
