I have read some discussion on this topic.
However, my issue is when I set a tournament and tell everyone it is one move per week and pause in the weekend. Then, when the game starts right on Friday, people might think they have a week to make a move. But did not realize the blue starter clock issue, people might lose the game not even making the move.
Understand previous discussion on blue clock for a challenge game.
However, should this feature be disable in the tournament game? Because the players were arranged by the system. And people might not know this first move timer rule is different from tournament’s setup.
Just found out, in my tournament setup (1 move per week), After the Blue Starter Timer ran out, the timer will start running the tournament setup (7 days). Meaning, the Black actually gets extra Blue Timer time.
Were these games which were paused or on vacation or did weekend pause reset then all?
If it just flipped over to normal click without timing out black then it seems to have changed since “through the years” maybe. Although I’m finding it hard to follow in that thread now.
No but you can set the tournament start time so that it is within 3 days of the weekend. And enable weekend pause. This seems to negate the effect of the blue start clock as when weekend pause ends the timer will revert to the set time for the game for black and not timeout at the end of the blue start clock.
If I’ve understood correctly ofc and I might be wrong!
