Re: Fall 2019 Champions League

I’ll agree to disagree, no more!

If I tie a worse ranked player, I would demand that they advance, I would expect more of myself and refuse to rest on my laurels, a tie against a worse ranked opponent is a loss, and hats off to their superior (relative) performance, period.

Re: Fall 2019 Champions League

Finally, if nothing else separates: 5. Who has the higher rank. FTR/FWIW - I would never have the higher rank be a tie-breaker, I feel very strongly that a tie-breaker in a tournament should be based on the performance in that tournament, if a lower ranked player ties a higher ranked player then th...

I got an email back from the mods a week ago that I need to respond to (which I completely forgot about, so thanks for the reminder :D ).
You’re welcome for the reminder, thank you for your time and effort organizing this tournament, *very* much appreciated!

I need to do a few more things to get the go-ahead from the mod team.
How’s everything coming together? Please let me know if you think I might be able to help with anything!

Forum Rules vs Admin Rules

Question: If an admin makes a personal attack against someone on the forum, and not as part of official admin duties but as a regular site member, and then uses his admin powers to edit out the personal attack (perhaps to whitewash his member *and* admin reputations), would that be considered breaki...

I'm actually now thinking that I should start in January, to give players time to get back on the Elo list. It also means there's time to fix the fact that bot games are currently included in the ratings, because that's skewing things quite a lot at the moment.
Early January?!

Re: Fall 2019 Champions League

So, one last try to get this going? What are the odds of convincing the mods to allow a TD to play in a 1v1 tournament? I emailed the mods in late November, detailing a way to TD (and/or co-TD with someone, perhaps RJ!) the tournament while playing, the response was: “We will never approve a tourna...

Re: Fall 2019 Champions League

Groups were round robin, right ? Why not have all the group matches happen at once ? For example, if my group has 4 players including me, I would theoretically play 6 1v1's all at once. The first round is six games at once, pretty crazy but it would often happen at least partly over Thanksgiving We...

Re: Fall 2019 Champions League

It used to be that we were supposed to play a minimum of two phases every day, though loosely enforced, but even only checking in once a day I’d finalize one set of orders (while my opponent had already finalized orders) and then I’d immediately finalize a second set of orders so my opponent could d...

Re: Fall 2019 Champions League

When in doubt, leave the tie-breaker as it was, then when comparing tournaments over time there is consistency.

Re: Fall 2019 Champions League

I agree with 90kic regarding sum of centers as the first tie-breaker causing atypical play, so I vote against that. I don’t mind a third game tie-breaker especially in AvF, but if a quicker tournament is a priority I like the idea of the first tie-breaker being the faster victory.

Re: Fall 2019 Champions League

I don't intend to participate. I'd be happy to organise it if mods agree. I think the tournament would be *much* better if you participated CptMike, so maybe think on that a bit... If you ultimately prefer to host, I’m sure many like myself would be very appreciative, and I think you need to read t...

Fall 2019 Champions League

Any rumors about this coming back to life any time soon? Pretty sure RJ wants a chance to defend his title...

Also, what if only the top 30 automatically qualify, and there are two spots granted to whoever... For example, maybe we could talk TheGhostmaker into playing...

This is an interesting situation, especially given the individuals involved... A ban for life does seem extreme, from the outside-looking-in, but as they say, ignorance is bliss...
