Western Meddling in Iranian Protests
So this is great and all. Encouraging protests and stuff. Um didnt this happen in Iran in Arab Spring too? When people start dying were gonna look pretty bad again. Like we encouraged a coup but didnt actually care about the consequences.

Fewer live classic games these days?
Looking back through the last couple months' completed games, it feels like there are far fewer Classic live games than there were a few years ago. Do other people have the same feeling?

I am interested. If I don’t make the cut, I’d offer my services to run a 1v1 shadow cup which features up to 32 players who did not qualify for the main tournament.
I'd play if the ratings fall enough (54th). I'm in for what you suggest @Jeff Kuta if not.

Sounds good. I'm in
For the next tournament, you could make qualifications, for example: 24 of the best ranked players go into competition directly and the rest play for the remainding 8 spots. Like in Champions league.
MadMarx (32542 D (G))

I’m fine with top 24 automatically qualifying! :-P
peterwiggin (14697 D (S))

I'll play if it gets down to 88.
Jeff Kuta (2066 D)
08 Nov 17 UTC
Well, you could have an open application to the tournament, but then cut it off at a certain point and have a play-in round.

To use Nikola's numbers, if 40 people applied, 24 automatically qualify and the next 16 are seeded top-half/bottom-half and paired off.

If more than 64 applied, then perhaps auto qualify 16, then have the next 32 play in down to 16 more, then non-qualifiers and everyone else goes into shadow tournament/"Europa League" equivalent.
Hellenic Riot (1574 D (G))
08 Nov 17 UTC
I considered a Europa League style second tier. Last time there wasn't really a lot of signups who just missed out, but if a huge amount sign up and miss the cut this time then next time I may run a B-tier tournament simultaneously.

I don't really want to go with Qualifiers because the whole point of this tournament is for it to take a short period of time; as opposed to the lengthy open tournaments we already have, and which everyone is of course free to play in.
Jeff Kuta (2066 D)
08 Nov 17 UTC
Qualifiers can be a quick and dirty business. Just set up pairings and if a tie-breaker is needed, use sum of squares of supply centers as Austria, then ghost rating.

Tom Bombadil (3035 D (G))

I fee like its been a while since the last one ended. Doesn't the time between serve as an adequate period to try to bump your GR to qualify?

I narrowly miss qualifying with the rank of #601 on heads up ELO. But if some quirk leads to needing a sub or to fill an extra position, I'm in.

By the way... for those of you who love heads up games and also play on vdip, there is a perpetual 1v1 ladder tournament over there with rules that make it a lot of fun. Defenders higher in the ladder pick the board, and both reciprocal games are played. If a tie happens, the challenger picks the board and a pair of games is repeated. With the variety of boards available there, it is a lot of fun with a lot of variety. The challenge / board selection approach is a very nice way of handling unbalanced boards. As defender, you can pick a less balanced board making it more certain that you'll retain your spot after the first pairing in the game, but the rematch component means that doing this turns over second choice to your challenger. That's a pretty big incentive to not pick unbalanced boards and to pick boards that you think you can do better on than 1-1 because there are a lot of boards available. I happen to love, and thus to have become an unintentional specialist in, the Empire1v1 board (American map as here, with two civil war powers.) I'm a big favorite on that board against many players with generally higher skills just through lots of time on the board, so people I challenge have that incentive to try to actually beat me on the board that they pick when I challenge them, etc.

Fun times. Maybe next year I'll qualify for this one. It seems fantastic and I've been boning FxA, so my ELO should rise over the next year.
