The automatic OGS Tournaments: Japanese rules only?

#1

Why are the automatic OGS tournaments only Japanese rule based? Couldn’t there be a variety of rules that the computer chose from at random?

#2

All automatic event games use the J rules. :3 When you think about it… it makes sense, because it would be extremely silly to start half a dozen different instances of tournaments just to cover all different rulesets. The differences are mostly esoteric, anyway.

These two are Chinese rules (https://online-go.com/tournament/45025 & https://online-go.com/tournament/45026) and almost automatic. I try to have one like it always available.

You can also create your own tournaments, of course, for help click here.
