Fast Correspondence Tournaments


#41

Thanks! Is it also possible to have a fast correspondence ladder?


#42

There already is one :smiley: :smiley:

It’s in the Fast Correspondence Group.

Unfortunately, the settings are no faster than the site ladder, but at least the people playing in there supposedly like to play fast.


#43

If you could code that, that would be fantastic. :pray:

It’s not something every group needs but there’s a very good case for this group.


#44

Back by popular demand:


Fischer 1d + 12h/move up to 2d

#46

I’m not so sure that one without access to the back end code could even contribute that code. I thought only the front end code is open source?


#47

That’s the only reason we don’t have this already. IMO we should…

Two new Fast(ish) Correspondence Tournaments for you to enjoy.

and a full-size version with the same settings for those who mistakenly believe the smaller board holds no challenge. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

But wait, there’s more…

“Fast Correspondence – August 2018 (A)” isn’t gone yet, but we have 5 disqualified out of 10. All because of timeout.
Only one of the disqualified participants is member of “Fast Correspondence” group.

I wonder if a tournament for-members-only would have better results (less or no timeout).
Has this been tried before?

I think there’s a big difference between using +8hrs/move and +12hrs/move. My last tournament to finish only had one in ten resign and none disqualified for TO.

There’s a big difference also between 19x19 and 9x9, I guess. :slight_smile:

In the posts above, @TomDub gave the idea of increasing the maximum time to 7 days in order to make it work as a buffer and avoid excessive eliminations. Since this would not affect much the overall time per move of the game, I think this is a great idea. I would like to see it being tested.

But wait, there’s more…

To find out how to play under Chinese rules follow the link below. (Don’t worry, there are no big differences :slight_smile: )

4 posts were split to a new topic as per request (let me know if you wanted it otherwise):

They seem popular so…

Continuing the “Out-of-Ten” series. :slight_smile: For November:

Nb: I typically run other “Fast Corresp. 9x9” during the month but I don’t post for each one. Check here: https://online-go.com/tournaments or here: https://online-go.com/group/2014

There’s also this for full size board lovers:

Nb. Unlike last month, the full size version uses Japanese Rules after persuasive arguments by GaJ.
