Two big changes:


1) Matches must be completed in full to count for points.

2) 5-3-1 system returns.


1) Undecided. I may adopt the system I'd like to see for the other two tournaments here (round-robin --> top6 bracket), or we may see a double-elimination thing going on. It's up to you.


I've lost a lot of interest in playing matches for the chess league and running the thing. I think we've lost a lot of the spark that made it interesting, and everything is just too damn predictable nowadays. I really want to add to the spark that is the OCRCL, but the best ideas that come into my head are to play a bunch of different variants. The league is no longer fresh, and we keep playing the same 8-10 people over and over again. WWJDD?

In all honesty, this is step two of my attempt at streamlining all three OCR tournaments (OCRCL, OCR Emulation, OCR Arcade Games). We had to do this early to jump into the staggered schedule now, instead of in a month or so. Friday is the day we need to use and that's the day that we will use for all deadlines from now on (I'm hoping).

So what do YOU want to see from THIS tournament, and others to come? It'll only be three weeks, which I feel is a good time limit. Input please :)

I'm just going to post this to keep the thread breathing. This guy tried to play Wayward Queen (Qh5) against me and I trapped his queen, took it, then trounced him.

I think we need some fresh blood to add to the game here.

We'll do round-robin for now (I'm at work so I can't make a new table), but let's do the round-robin --> top6 thing.

I may participate. I need something a little less intense and a little less laggy than emulated 2D fighting games at the moment. Just tell me when things start up and you know I'm always on aim on the weekends.

Yeah, the videogame tournaments are a lot of fun but lag ends up ruining the authenticity of a lot of matches.

In chess it's just the same results over and over and over again :)
