Chess Tournament!

Match-ups

Rules
Rules are completely up to you to decide, whether you play best 2/3, or just 1 game. You must post proof of the winner, or have myself in attendance of the match.
PLEASE try to complete your match within 3 days after each round is posted! Do not go ahead as well please. You may be eager, but we need to wait for all competitors to complete their matches so we don't end up waiting at the end!

Questions

Q.) Why are there so many people getting byes in the first round?
A.) There are 18 competitors. It is an extremely hard number to work with when creating a table for a contest! This was the only way that I could make sure there is 1 final match!

Q.) How do I play Chess against my opponent?
A.) Log onto Funorb! It uses your exact same Runescape username and password, and you set up a match between one another in the Chess lobby. If you are struggling, contact me!

Q.) When did we sign up for this?
A.) There was a week-long sign-up 2 weeks ago. I am sorry if you joined the clan within those 2 weeks, but I can't help you. There will be NO additions to this contest. Sorry guys, but it's taken a lot of time to organise!

Q.) Why is this tournament so fixed? or You set it up to your advantage! (Something along those lines)
A.) The match-ups were completely random, and my witnesses are Kerk and Game. I wrote all the names on individual pieces of paper and we drew them out of a hat together. If we fixed it, then why would I put myself against Golden in the first round, and Kerk against Lamb in the first round then have to play Star right after?


Happy Checkmating, and good luck to all competitors!

Oooh either Masta or Tech. :o

Kerkennah - May 18, 2009 12:20 AM (GMT)
I must win :DD Lamb your going down bud.

Icewolf68 - May 18, 2009 12:50 AM (GMT)
Golden... You must..... "Taste Vengeance!" ;)

animal magik - May 18, 2009 01:03 AM (GMT)
So Masta/Tech, you have to hurry up and play, because I want to. :K

Starwolf Ftw - May 18, 2009 01:08 AM (GMT)
Woot@ I got a bye, at least I can say that I didn't get last place! :P

Well..what about making a consolation draw for those that don't win their first match. It's kinda not fair for only some people to play like 3 games and others only 1.

For those who don't know, a consolation draw is like a normal draw, but it's for winner of the losers. I loved the fact that most tennis tournaments have this second draw format.

thegame910 - May 18, 2009 01:16 AM (GMT)
good luck all

=)


Ps. Second place is only the first loser =p

Icewolf68 - May 18, 2009 03:18 AM (GMT)
I guess with Golden gone until June 15th, that bumps the person against him into the next round... Oh wait, that's me! :P

Get playing tomorrow noobcakes!

Like z0mg, "Why is this tournament so fixed? or You set it up to your advantage! (Something along those lines)"!!!!

Icewolf68 - May 18, 2009 05:02 PM (GMT)
Lmao when I saw Golden's leaving post, that was the first thing I thought...

Star, I like the idea, just need the competitors to complete their first match-ups!

Dono still plays, and he comes in cc and posts quite a bit still. I'm sure he will notice!

To everyone if your first round game isn't decided by Wednesday at 11pm clan time, then I will decide who moves on. If you make an effort to try and find your competitor, then you will likely be the one that moves on. If I believe you are avoiding your competitor, then you will likely not move on.

-tries to find my opponent-
Oh wait.
And with the 3 day thing, I think that's a liiitle too short.
Because I can't get on too often during the school week, which is 5 days, and with my timezone if I can get on it may not be when my opponent is. So maybe make that a week?

Techy - May 18, 2009 09:45 PM (GMT)
Does anyone know when Masta is usually online? O_o

animal magik - May 18, 2009 10:07 PM (GMT)
Uhh about now. :o

Techy - May 18, 2009 10:30 PM (GMT)
I beat masta. It was intense :P

In the end it was just kings and pawns.

Edit: I also widened the tourny thing for ya Ice. Don't know if you want to use it, but I got bored ^_^

Well my goal is to make sure people aren't "lollygaging" and taking forever to play, stalling the contest... But I guess we can bump it to 5 days. Friday by 11:00pm is your due date now for the first round of the competition!

Good job guys
I'm going to play lamb on friday

animal magik - May 19, 2009 08:30 AM (GMT)
5 days is better but still I think it should be a week, or maybe you could make some exceptions. Either that or start rounds on Fridays or Thursdays if possible.

Lamb Bug - May 19, 2009 11:22 AM (GMT)
I is gonna pwnzor Kerk at 4 PM EST this Friday :)

Lolz yeah sorry, we took contestants 2.5 weeks ago, and I just got the event off its feet this week. Perhaps the next Chess tourney (if there is one)?

thegame910 - May 22, 2009 10:14 PM (GMT)
Jss missed the match =( looks like i win by default, thats no fun =(

Lamb Bug - May 22, 2009 11:16 PM (GMT)
I beat Kerk. ^_^

Icewolf68 - May 23, 2009 01:45 AM (GMT)
*Sigh* Looks like I have to choose winners from the uncompleted duels... Witnessed it Lamb :P great job... Lucky Kerk's time ran out ;)


ice

EDIT: I really hate doing this... I am hosting this event to the best of my ability, but if people choose not to follow the deadlines or choose not to compete against their opponent, what can I do?
I for this reason have decided not to have a consolation round. What's the point of it if the consolation side people don't even bother to play, like some of them did.
The randomly selected people moving on (as they did not actually complete their matches) are:
- Matlew5 over Donovan_Kays
- Dude12dragon over 3moni
- The_Game_910 over Jss268

May the 2nd round begin! Match-ups for the Second round are as follows (This is also in the first post):

May the best Chess player win!


ice

DOUBLE EDIT: Reminder, you have 5 days once again to complete your matches! That means Wednesday May 27th, by 11pm Clan Time, 7pm Eastern is your date!
