happyjuggler0: yes i understand that, the only reason i make them short/ish is that it tends to attract more competition, 5 points or more seems to dramatically reduce the entrants.

Anyway good luck to all who enter!

furbster: I just enjoy all types of backgammon! 1pointers or 5 point matches i liek them all, more people tend to sign up to 1 point tournaments though and i prefer more competition. I will set up a 5 point cubed brain tourney too and see if many people want to join that one.

Aganju 
Subject: Re: 25 brains entry
furbster: I always wonder why many people make Backgammon tournaments with no doubling cube. Backgammon has a certain percentage of luck in it, which gets reduced significantly by playing for a higher game count, and the doubling cube is a critical part of the game logic.
Personally, I avoid tournaments where there is only a match to one point, because the game is too much chance under those circumstances.
Don't get me wrong - I am not criticizing you, furbster, and it's of course your right to make any tournament you like. I just see many of those, and I don't join them for that reason, and it makes me wonder why even strong players create them this way. Do you care to explain?

Subject: Re:
Aganju: Yes, that also (and of course as long as he can not advance to the next round) - Currently Fencer does sometimes let pawns join new tournaments once that happens - of course in the case we are discussing now, they will be in the next round..... once it starts, which will mostly likely still be awhile.

6. May 2015, 04:03:12
Aganju 
Subject: Re:
coan.net: I agree. Sounds like a good idea.
Or what about this: if the Pawn has finished all his game(s) in the tournament, he can join another one? It is not his fault that the others have not yet finished?

6. May 2015, 03:57:17
coan.net 
For this situation, in my opinion is that the best solution would be a change in the rule of pawn in tournaments.

Current rule is a pawn can only be in 1 tournament at a time.

I think it should be change to:

Pawn can only be in 1 tournament at a time, OR if current tournament started 6 months ago or more, another tournament will be allowed to be started.

Most tournament (well if you play fast, you should join faster tournaments) last less then 6 months, so when these cases come up like this, then it would allow players to join other tournaments while the 1st one finishes.

Of course Fencer isn't programming much lately, so I don't think this will get programmed, but I think if possible, would be a good working solution.

Subject: Re: long lasting tournaments
pgt: Exactly this is the reason I do not participate in gammon(especially cloning backgammon) tournaments with long time controls. It does not matter how many years it can take for a tournament to finish. You have to take that in account when setting up time controls. This is why Fischer time controls exist. Any tournament creator can make use of them. Anyone wanting to participate to a tournament can take the time controls in account.
Less people participate in tournaments, because less people play in the site. And from those that pay, very few like quick time controls, it seems. I am one of those that try to create tournaments with quick time controls. Hardly any of them ever get enough people to start.

Subject: Re: long lasting tournaments
Hrqls: Is THAT tournament still running? I was in that tournament and my last move was TEN years ago! How ridiculous that a simple backgammon tournament should last TEN years! With any luck you should be able to win the tournament before you die - is your health good? I actually think that for future tournaments, there should be a provision that any games not completed within 12 months of the start of the tournament round should be forfeited, and the leading player after 12 months should be promoted to the next round. Ok, I know we can't do that for running tournaments (actually we could if anybody had the inclination and initiative to take a stand and actually DO it), but maybe in future??? - if Fencer can "be bothered!"
