Go Tournament - Signups

Postby socrates » March 7th, 2017, 10:27 am

Hey guys,

After the successful chess tournament I had an idea of creating the next tournament for the game 'Go'.

For those that haven't heard of Go it is a board game like chess which has supposedly simple rules so anyone can play it but is extremely hard to become a master.

I'm not sure how well this idea will work as I have never played Go and don't know the rules but I assume its the same for (mostly) everyone. It means we would all start at the same level and have to learn to play at the same time. Hopefully it could be quite fun.

The tournament format will likely be very similar to the chess tournament and we could play using this site which also may contain some examples of how to play: https://online-go.com/

You can of course use any website to learn the game (there must be 1000s) but for those too lazy to google you could use this: https://www.britgo.org/intro/intro2.html

So if you are interested please sign up below.

Thanks,

P.S Sorry for those that clicked hoping for CS:GO :P

Ok doesn't look like we are gonna get any more so lets begin!

Bracket is here: http://challonge.com/feedmego

You will have to create an account on https://online-go.com in order to play. Then search for your opponent using the menu to the left and click challenge.

The tournament will be best of 3 on the 9x9 grid. Please use the following settings and make sure to set Game Speed as Live otherwise you have to click confirm on every move which is really annoying. I don't really understand the ending but just use the automated scoring.

No set times for the matches - I trust everyone here will manage to play it within a reasonable time frame. If a certain match is delaying the tournament then I will set a specific deadline for it.

Good luck and have fun :)

Flash 0-2 saviola

https://online-go.com/game/8094427
https://online-go.com/game/8094570

First game was counted as Flash' win for some reason, I don't understand how the scoring works. Think we screwed up the scoring process somehow.
