    We have a challenger! I already know I am getting my ass kicked on this, but I am looking forward to seeing some good matches among you people.

    Alright. So, first of all, here's a list of those who said they will participate. Not adding Baka or Sheep, cause they not sure yet. Also, not sure of Taro is participating, so did not add him.

    @Farris @Teru @Zyxx23 @Grinners @EvoRulz @Rebel @Koushiro @Wolfangle @AshitoKenji @holg0290 @ccc @Kirn @Lieutenant

    That's 13 people, and it would be nice to get some more, to get us up to 16 or higher. But anyways.

    Main announcement - tournament will start on the first Saturday of the Summer, so we are starting matches on the 3rd of June.
    Tournament will be a double elimination, as proposed by Taro. Meaning, even after losing once, you will have a chance to make a comeback. Tournament brackets will be prepared right before we start, when I will know for certain, how many people are going to play.
    For timeframe - as before, timeframe will be somewhat fluid. We will determine all the matches that need to be played in a round, and then you will have a week to play the games. When everyone finishes their game, we switch to next round, so round will take a maximum of a week, but might take less. I expect we would be done shortly after 1 month since we start.

    That's it for now.

    If you aren't on the list, but want to play - do confirm your participation. If you are on the list, but can't make that dates - also mention that here.

    Oh dear glord, the timing on this one.

    Well, it's chess, and I'm several years rusty, and I usually spectate and do post-analysis... Fuck it, I'll double-check my thesis schedule before making any commitments.

    Would also be really useful to know what TZ participants are. I know this causes difficulties for some ppl when combined with school or work and it just helps to try to work around this.
