New Tournament Feature: Solo Team Pooling

The ability for tournament admins to enable 'solo queue' team pooling has been implemented, pending bug testing and feedback. In short, it enables players who want to play in a team tournament to 'queue up' as an individual and get put into a pooling bucket where they are grouped with other players who have signed up the same way.

It will be only available for tournaments running the Open division because trying to seed a tournament with this feature enabled across the board would be a nightmare. I imagine it would be used for casual tournaments where people just want to have fun without committing to join a team.

The solo signups will be visible on the tournament display page, and the system chooses to form teams based on the signup date and time. If there aren't enough players available to form a team, the players who signed up last won't get in, so it's based on a 'first come first serve' type of reasoning. Once the tournament admin decides to close signups and generate the brackets, solo pooled teams will dynamically form and get put in with the regular seeded teams and inserted into the bracket. Each solo pooled team is only temporary and available for that specific tournament.
