Go to:

https://warlight001.appspot.com/

and join. This is a real-time swiss tourney, 5mins per move, 15mins autoboot. 4 rounds of games.
Starts automatically once 8 players have joined.

This is my first try as a real tournament, so bugs might appear (have tested locally though as a 4-player tourney).

For those who do not know what swiss system is google it, it's a standard for many chess tournaments and it works really great with more people (for small 4-5 RR is better, but we have to test it).

glad you joined hedja - i have 3 dummy accounts for testing purposes. without you, i would have needed a 4th one, and would have to wait to the next diehard film to come out, to get the player name :/

well a couple of problems:
75% luck, i just lost a 5 vs 2 :(
wrong map (i think it is suppossed to be on a swiss map?)
I`ll update more later, also you are playing all your alternate accounts :D

ah, no, 'swiss' is the matching system for the tournament :/

i should have made that clear, didnt think :/


my 3 dummy accounts will always surrender. they will finish in the last 3 places.

i *think* 165 luck is not possible for non-members, so that is why i went for 75%.

Yeah non-members can`t create games with 16% luck, but it says in the game that the creator was you "unknownsoldier", so theorectically i think you should be able to make them with 16% next time. 75% luck is a massive put-off :D

Hedja, automated tournaments have different rules. However, you can still use a template with 16% luck. The games with members will use the luck defined by the template, and the games with non-members will just automatically revert to 75%.

As long as you're okay with different games within the tournaments having different luck values, it'll be fine. You can even change the template now for the next round.

O ok, so from now on i will always play with 16% luck, as szew, artham and unknown are all members?
(counting that matches against unknown´s alts arent played)

sorry hedja - not this tourney - i selected 75% luck template. In future tourneys I could make it that way.

Actually, looking at the posts from szew´s and artham´s match, they have 75% luck as well, and that is 2 members :S

Cool that you can do a swiss pair, that's a lot better then RR for more players. Best system for 16+ players is 3-4 rounds of swiss + top4 single elimination. For more players = more rounds of swiss and bigger top.

best regards

You should probably just edit your database and mark it as a loss. You can make your code do this automatically too. This is another thing that would be a good idea to add to the CLOT base code.

I´m going to need to leave soon, and though my win stats i dont care about much, i do care about my boot stats, becuase i do try not to get booted, and i have 6 matches left :(

ok, best if i just wipe this tourney then?

btw - Fizzer, I dont know how to edit database. I use the google appengine? I dont see that - only deleting all objects of a type.
Appengine doesn't allow django's normal Admin stuff.

So I need to write my own python code to eg automatically detect if a game has taken too long to start, detect the offending player, and make him lose that game, I presume?
