Friday, December 8, 2007: FIRST ROUND HAS BEGUN!
NOTE: This article is more updated than the original topic. If a difference in information occurs, this article will be regarded as most recent unless otherwise stated.
NOTE: Any questions regarding the tournament can be pmed to i_like_pie, 7h3.D3m0n.117, or Temperal.

Teams

Each team will consist of either 4 or 5 players. Players can agree between themselves and create their own teams. Those who haven't made their own teams will be randomized into teams.

During the tournament, a team cannot request to have another player added to their team unless one of their players cannot participate anymore. Players cannot switch teams, so choose wisely if you pick your own teams.

Rules

A team must post a move within 2 days after the other team's move. Each time a team fails to do so (unless there is a good reason), a warning will be issued. 5 warnings will result in disqualification.

The use of computers, chess programs, and other devices that give your team an advantage is not allowed. This rule cannot be strictly enforced, but hopefully people will play fairly as this tournament is for fun only.

Tournament Format

Depending on the amount of players and teams, there will be several rounds of Swiss, followed by single elimination for the final rounds. For the final game, 3 days will be allowed per move.

Signing Up

Before signing up, please make sure you will be able to participate. I_like_pie will accept sign ups via post in the original topic, <url>privmsg.php?mode=post&u=22236 PM</url>, or email (nkouevda@gmail.com).

Sign ups are closed as of November 24, 2007.

Playing

All games will be played in the Math and Strategy forum, with each team posting moves when it is their turn. All games will also be documented on the Wiki.

Here is the format for the page name of each game:

AoPSWiki:Chess/Chess Tournament Info/Round #/Game #, where the first # is the round number and the second is the game number. All of these would be part of Category:Current Round # Chess Games.

The format of games in the last two rounds will be different:

AoPSWiki:Chess/Chess Tournament Info/Semifinals/Game #: all of these would be part of Category:Current Semifinals Chess Games

AoPSWiki:Chess/Chess Tournament Info/Finals/Game #: all of these would be part of Category:Current Finals Chess Games

FAQ

When will the pairings be up?

As mentioned above, pairings will be up in the next week.


When do games start?

Round one began on December 7th. Round two will begin once all round one games have finished.


Do we play the games on Wiki or the Math and Strategy Games Forum?

Games are played in the Math and Strategy Games Forum. The Wiki pages are kept up to date by TD's.


Will the Wiki game/round pages have any use?

Yes. Temperal will be documenting every move on the wiki with those pages to prevent cheating, illegal moves, etc.


Will there be a standardized title for the topics?

Yes. The titles will be: "Chess tournament: Round [number], Game [number], Team [name] vs. Team [name]".


How many rounds will this tournament be?

Four rounds of randomized Swiss, then the semi-finals and finals (referred to collectively as the playoffs), which are single elimination.


Will there be appeals for rematches?

No. If you made a terrible mistake unrepresentative of your playing level, so be it. We're not extending this already-long tournament even more.


When will each new round begin?

As soon as all games in the previous one are finished. If a game is taking too long, it will be up to the TD's to announce the winner.


How do you generate the chess board images?

Free online editor: http://www.apronus.com/chess/wbeditor.php

Alternatively, you can take a screenshot of the board on another program.
