NU.net chess tournament?

Post by Kirby » January 25th, 2012, 1:12 am

I don't even know how to play chess, but I noticed that a lot of forum members like to play chess (on Facebook) and I thought it might be fun to have a site competition.

Prizes wouldn't be anything major, if anything.

Post here if you'd be interested

Participants:
1. Raver
2. Maikel631
3. thecad
4. Ppprre
5. TimeToE
6. Nightcorix
7. Johannez691
8. RaveComing
9. DrownedinMusic5683
10. Dubstep Girl
11. jordesu

It'll be a double-elimination tournament
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-eli ... tournament

All games will be played to checkmade or resignation. If you draw you must rematch until a winner is determined. No time limits or additional game modes, but participants should try to complete their games as soon as possible in order to keep the competition moving.

A lot of members used to play chess but don't anymore, don't actually know how to play chess and just move the pieces around, or are just genuinely bad at chess. And it seems a bit unfair to put them in the same group who do play chess actively and are good at it.

We could have two separate brackets; one for the good players and one for the bad players and at the end the best bad player plays the worst good player or something.

From my understanding, they all use the Chess.com Facebook app to play, I think you could just play with them using the Chess.com website as well.

Dubstep Girl considers herself good at chess and has a facebook ranking of roughly 1k (you start at 1.2k), meaning she has a w/l ratio of under 50%. I think she can participate. I'm not saying that she's bad, only that she wouldn't be overwhelmingly too strong for the rest of us.

Your wall posts say otherwise, what with all the screenshots and "GET ON MY LEVEL!!!1" etc. :P

Anyways, I'll be accepting participants now, if you haven't already explicitly stated you'd join then please do so so I can start making the bracket. The tournament will be run double-elimination style, there will only be one group because everyone seems to insist that they're bad.

You'll need to decide on a game mode on Chess.com everyone will play in, I have no idea how this thing works.

As far as I know, there is just one objective in the game. The game modes is like more time, when you play you get more time, etc.

Nightcorix, she's asking if you want to play in the competition. You should join, even if you're pro at it you haven't played in a while.

Lol, I kinda want to drop out of this contest. Seriously, I am so bad at chess, you wouldn't even know xDDD I don't know 90% of the rules. Even the people who say they suck are for sure way better then me.
