Score system suggestion

12 posts in this topic

As a suggestion and to keep things fair, is it not better that everyone should play twice, once as black once as white? I know my strategy changes slightly depending on the colour I think others may too.

Then the results can be put into a table, simalar to a football league whereby you have a games played column, and W, D and L column, and a score. Everyone plays everyone twice, then a winner is declared?

Might take a while, but it's the chess tournement 2005, so we've got a while thumbsup.gif

I agree that doing it that way would be fairer, though the tournament will take twice as long if every matchup has to be repeated twice.

I'd like to hear some more opinions on this, as it would effect all those concerned.

What does everyone else think ? Should we play each match twice, or play each match once but tossing a coin to find out who goes white ?

Well, I'm voting for the two games option, I don't like leaving anything down to luck or chance, i don't beleive in it.

I don't think it matters if it goes on longer, in fact I'd support it. I'm having fun playing so the longer the better if you ask me original.gif

I've just spoken to Blood_Angel and he's also in agreement. I certainly don't have any problem doing it that way, as long as nobody minds playing twice as many games.

As I say I'd agree that it would be a fairer system, looks like i'm going to be playing Thistle again laugh.gif

I'll update the scoreboard and FAQs to reflect the changes.

K here's another one.

I can't help but notice how many people are playing one move every 3 days. Sooo.....how about, where possible we set the timeout to 1 day and timebank to 7 days? Obviously that's not going to suit everyone, ie people who access the internet from work but I think we need to do something to hurry this thing along a bit or we'll still be here playing at Xmas. hmm.gif

P.S.....if this is a good idea it was mine.....if it sucks it was Talon's laugh.gif

Yeah, I agree, I've got matches which are moving a move a day and some which haven't moved in days which is just holding us up from people who do want to play. There isn't really a reason, apart from playing from work, why a game can't be finished in less that 3 days max.

I like this idea. Alot. I'm going to go with it too.

One day timeouts from now one, 7 day time banks.

All around!
