What are "Default" tournaments?
  • BuilderQ at 2016-08-02

    I haven’t been active on this site for a long time, but I find that apparently for some reason I was included in these “default” tournaments, in which most games have ended with 0 moves (perhaps because most participants, like me, didn’t know that these tournaments existed). Does anyone know what’s going on?

    Apparently, all monthly cup winners during any given year play a final tournament for that year.

    These “default” tournaments were started this year, about a decade after the monthly cups happened. (Also, they use a 9x9 board, which didn’t exist at the time of the monthly cups). I haven’t played in any monthly cups since 2007, so hopefully the site isn’t going to automatically enroll me in any more things.

    There shouldn’t be any danger of that. :-)

    The “DEFAULT” portion of this refers to the fact that it is the default variant of fir and not some other variant.  (I suspect there are no fir variant, but for example, EWN has “black hole” as a variant).
