Hi, I am testing out my up-to-date CLOT code.

To do that, I will create a swiss-style tournament. ie, each round, your opponent will be someone of roughly equal number of wins as you - this means that as the tourney progresses, your opponents are those of about the same level as you - this leads to more even games for everyone :)

The tournament will be created and listed at:
https://warlight001.appspot.com/tourneys
BUT I will wait until 30mins to go before creating - so that people only join if they are online near to the start time.
The tourney will start at 1800 GMT if there are the minimum number of players (min 8 to max 16 players). Everyone will play in all 4 rounds (if an odd number, then a random player sits out each round).

Games are real-time and you MUST join your games within 15mins of game creation, else you will lose by default (so any players who do not play until the end will be, in effect, 'booted').

Hey Unknown, sorry but I am going to have to back out, I don't know if I will have the time required to commit to these games. Hopefully I can catch the next one.

Tourney starts in 40mins, you can join from now on.

Go to https://warlight001.appspot.com/tourneys/24006 and check you like the settings (eg the game template). Then hit 'Join' and follow the join instructions.

TourneyID, when you are asked for it, is 24006.

Ok, 5 minutes to go

We have enough players to start, so will start for sure at 1800hrs.


GRZECHOO - you wanting to play? (you joined, then left - you'll only participate if you hit 'Join' again in the next few minutes)

np Grzechoo, glad you rejoined. (Were you testing out the fine user interface? :)

Ozyman: I try to be as clear as I can about the info here, but I still need you to read it :/ Hope to see you next time though :)

btw - to have an even number of players (better since then no-one misses games, etc) I have also joined with a dummy account (easy to guess which it is). I will surrender in all games with this account.

101st - dont worry - you have won that game by default. Check the tourney page, it says:

Sorry Unknown, but something came up, and I have to leave within 10min, is there anything I could do to minimize the eventual damage caused to the tourney?

Luxis - don't worry too much - you will be invited to 2 further games. When you do not join within 15mins, the tourney code will set it so you have 'lost by default'. Whoever is lucky enough to play you in those games gets a 'free' win.

One game left to finish in round 2. Reza v Platypus has reached turn 13.

101st: sorry your opponent ran away - not much I can do to prevent that (I could make tourneys members only, which might help, BUT then we get far fewer people who can join).

The only consolation is that players who quit will drop down the ranking fast, so once you have won a game, you are not so likely to be paired against them.

Platypus - no problem - could see you were both moving fairly fast.

On to Round 3.
