Cannot vote here. We will probably have a ten month year by then :stuck_out_tongue:

Disqualified players are still playing the tournament. Anybody knows If the second round will be starting when all games end, or if it’ll start when qualified players end their games between each other. Because there is no need to wait for the games in which two or even one disqualified player is participating to start the next round.

How is that? 5 disqualified players should be because of timeouts, so there should be 5 completed games. But there are only 4. I don’t think that TD manually disqualified a player. So what happened?

During this tournament many players changed their usernames and/or countries.
I wanted to make some chart about it, but it’s too chaotic to be nicely fitted in some chart.

But today I noticed something that was worth a little enquiry.
Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine some players made some adjustments: Russian players are decreased while Ukrainian players are increased.

While Russian players were a little fluctuating, Ukrainians were steady.
Then something changed.

Digging deeper I found out that:

  • “new” Ukrainian players came from Germany, US, undefined and World
  • one new Russian player came from GoT Stark
  • few Russians players moved to Germany, United federation of planets, Pirate, undefined and World
  • one player changed from World to Ukraine but yesterday changed once more to United Nations

I’m not trying to feed trolls or flames.
I just wanted to point out that this tournament will see many things before it ends.

(Note that dates are written the Italian way: day/month/year)

Coreon is about to play (as White) the hundredth move in his game against Xaloc.

Not too long until the two year anniversary.

We’re pretty close to a capacitor with maximum charge of 9950 completed games. :innocent:

At first there were more games than players (10038 vs 2233) but then in june 2021 the number of games still going became lower than the number of players involved.

Now it seems that the number of players is decreasing quicker than games.
I wonder if they’ll swap again.
