In February 2015, we hosted a Creators Invitational on KGS among 8 brilliant Go streamers:
Now it’s our time to make a larger and better tournament on OGS! Over the past two months of organizing, we have assembled 32 of the best teachers, streamers and figures in the online Go community; they have contributed great content in various formats, and we are proud of the achievements they have made over the years!
This tournament, hosted by @xhu98 and @108, will start in June 2015. All games will be scheduled and played live on OGS; feel free to cheer for your favorite content creators, and feel free to embrace the unique excitement of Go!
Since this has round robin pools, how are you breaking ties? The only way I see is to go against the standard of “51% of the board is the same as 100% of the board,” and it could get even more awkward with people resigning.
I think resolving ties using SOS and SODOS would be best. Different playing styles tend to yield different scores. Would it really be fair for a player with a peaceful playing style who excels at counting and wins by 5-6 points to miss the cut over an aggressive player who wins by resignation? In both cases a win was obtained, but is winning one way really worth less than the other?
If we’re looking for the players who played best in the Group Division to advance, then SOS and SODOS would be the fairest option.
