Fast Correspondence Tournaments


#21

This could be a solution.


#22

But, it would require permanent action by the tournament director to disqualify the players who went on vacation. Why not automate this?


#23

They already have code that disqualifies a player from a tournament or a ladder after a timeout… it shouldn’t be too hard to add vacation as another trigger? But I haven’t looked at the code…


#24

I made another +8h/move tournament for 5kyu players and up. join me! :smiley:


#25

Another one, for all levels.


#26

The tournament starts in 24hours. We could still use some players :slight_smile:.


#27

Moving along!

Note: OGS doesn’t allow time control to be changed, so I deleted that tournament and created a new one with 6h increment.


#28

Is there any chance of these being even faster?

In the September one, most players finished substantially more quickly.

It would be interesting to see if you could fill it with a setting of max 1 day instead of max 2 day, or similar.


#29

I guess lowering it to 1 day is too much. Maybe 6h increment?


#30

I think an experiment in that direction is worth a try…


#31


Fischer 2d + 12h/move up to 3d


#32

Given the fact that 6 out of 10 players timed out in the previous tournament, I’m going back to 8h increment for this one. Max time is 1d 12h.


#33

1d 12h had around 50% timeouts, so I’m going back to 2d. Enjoy!


#34

I think we have false advertising then: they are no longer “very fast paced tournaments”.

Yawn.


#35

2 days maximum is probably better.
But 1 day 12h or even 1day only, with conditional moves allowed might be a nice experiment, too.


#36

I mentioned vacation usage on the description, so the director has the right to call games. Enjoy!


#37

Hi,
The two April 2018 tornaments (A and B) are both full. Can we have C and D tornaments?


#38

Just learned that these existed when I saw this thread get bumped. Second the call for more tournaments. Why not create a new set when the previous get full?


#39

They usually do (thats how B came into existence).


#40

Exactly. I was checking that from time to time. Here we go!
