August 2007 Hackers' Monthly Cup
  • bloke at 2008-04-03

    is there any way to end this ridiculous August 2007 Monthly Cup by administrative ways? by blocking signing up for round 79 perhaps?

    august 2007 is finished….

    The participants are “all” active (clicking Resign within 24 h typically)

    In other tournaments, it's well possible to have multiple winners.

    I think it's a flaw of the MC algorithm: Why are they not merged into one group in the next round, and then declared all 9 as “winner” ?

  • MichaeI X at 2008-04-03

    ehm : … all 15 …

    Is it ? Compare the previous round

    77 Finish date:2008-04-02 09:4378 Start  date:2008-04-02 13:10

    There are 3*5 winners in round 78 (Finish date:2008-04-03 14:53)

    Round 79 should start soon …

    Currently Round 80 of the gomoku mc 2007 Aug is “running”…

    John successfully ended (resign in Move 0) his two games an hour after tournament start (Finish time: 2008-04-04 14:14), the other “games” are pending …

    chaosu, what makes you say that the august 2007 mc is finished? in the sense of having reached a dead end? that is exactly what i said.

  • Gregorlo at 2008-04-05

    i find it quite funny :)

  • Chaosu at 2008-04-06

    Sorry bloke, I looked at connect6 mc ; )

    Now I find it quite funny too!

  • Gregorlo at 2008-04-08

    And with John, he is choosing well when to resign, growing and growing the rating :)

  • bloke at 2008-04-11

    i think this is a shame too. not funny.

  • Art Duval at 2008-04-21

    Finally, officially over!

    A big thank you to Richard for tweaking the system so that progress gets rounded up rather than rounded down. Of course, the numbnuts are still out there, but I imagine that there's less jollies to be had now that their silly game can't continue indefinitely. (I can't imagine in what way being such an idiot was fun in the first place, though.)

    Oops, it ended a while ago, but showed up in the LG title line right now, for me!

    Another honor to “them”.
