The Unit World League Series

Posted by Uniteer on 11/29/11 at 6:21 PM

If you are a South American, African, Asian or Oceanic player, then read on.

The goal of these tournament series is first play a tournament according to the region where you live. Then the first 10 players of each region will go battle it out in the final. This final tournament will have 60 players, based on the fact that there are six regions:

  • North America (also includes Central America)
  • South America
  • Asia
  • Europe
  • Africa
  • Oceania

The American and European tournaments are already full, we are trying to fill the other tournaments.

If you are not from one of those counties, then please check out the following tournaments. You have to register for the correct tournament, I will remove people who have registered incorrectly and message them the correct one. I will be looking at the flag to determine from which country you are.

If you like this initiative, please consider joining the group The Unit, which is the organizer of this tournament series:

http://www.chess.com/groups/home/the-unit


The idea behind this group is unity, as the name already implies. We want to form a group with all sorts of different levels, but with one common goal: To have members who put their best foot forward and who strive to treat every game as if it were the most important game and to make this group the most successful group in Chess.com, by not just thinking in the individual aspect of the game, but to experience to be part of a great group Playing chess in many expects is an individual activity. But the feeling to belong to a special group can create an extra dimension, like paying more attention and time to your games. A cohesive group is more than the sum of its parts, and synergy is the ability of a group to outperform even its best individual members. A group stands or falls with the participation of its members. In The Unit, YOU decide which other groups we challenge and YOU decide which thematic tournaments are created: http://www.chess.com/groups/home/the-unit
