Please use this forum category to post all your ideas/questions/comments/etc about tournaments. We hope you enjoy the new feature...and the new forum!
First of all, thanks to Erik, Jay, and others for this awesome new feature! We appreciate the hard work!
I also second the request for more tournament types, but realize that this will take a long time to be implemented.
well, we do have knock-out tourney (the round-robin ARE knock-out). do you mean bracketted knock-outs?
Yes, it's a platinum/diamond feature. See the tournaments help page.
Thank you Jay, Eric and the rest of Chess.com staff,
This should be great!
Windward Chess & Go Club Open Tournament......... JION!
Thanky very muchy :)
There had been started a tournament "Great battles at Chesscom", in january.
I played the first round but was never informed about the second.
Does anyone know wether this tournament is still going on?
I'd like to know if time is restricted somehow. I mean if one single game is very slow (e.g. 50 moves x 3 days), this can spoil the joy of hundreds of players. Not to mention vacations...
nope. they can spoil it :) but if they have no chance to win, we can probably advance the round without them :)
Regarding future tournament ideas:
To address concerns regarding rating changes pushing players out of the rating range; is it possible to integrate glicko RD into the tournament 'guidelines'? Perhaps future tournaments could funnel players with glicko RD over a certain number into (a) a second bracket -or- (b) a second tournament...?
I'm sure there are many considerations to making a change like this, and it wouldn't even 'solve' the problem necessarily. I do think that this could however improve the perception of 'fairness.'
Well annotated (from a strategic perspective) Car Kann, London, Slav games.
