    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.

    Well, that's a constant problem, and we don't really have way around it. I will post the list of matches before we start, so you will be able to check who's your opponent is and make plans

    Aaaaaand, as promised - here is the bracket. Now, after counting participants, I found out, we have 17 people, which is 1 more than needed for the perfect bracket. I wanted to step down, but @Lieutenant offered her position instead. So, now the bracket looks thus:

    Now, as you see, this is a double elimination tournament, and to be honest, I have no idea how rounds would follow one another... but screw it, we will figure it out as we go. For now, here are the upcoming matches:

    @Taro_Tanako vs @Farris
    @Wolfangle vs @AshitoKenji
    @Grinners vs @BakaHime
    @EvoRulz vs @Kirn
    @Teru vs @virtuNat
    @Koushiro vs @holg0290
    @Zyxx23 vs @Qarr
    @Rebel vs @ccc

    Those are the matches. I have updated the first post with new tournament information. First match will start on 3rd and last until, and including, the 9th. You can pretty much start hunting your opponents already. Hunt them, kill them, don't forget to follow the rules of match posting.

    Play chess!

    @AshitoKenji you will go down in history. I really just randomized this thing once, and posted it as is, so there you go. Someone had to get in the first match with him.

    A reminder - it's not all over for Evo, as he will have a chance in the lower bracket now. Also, congrats with the first match of the tournament.
