Johnny Canuck *Oops, left one paragraph unfinished in there... I meant "There may be Championships of Champions"...

Callum Todd

Callum Todd Looks good.

Marcus Hares

Marcus Hares Not sure how this [link] affects your Friday night plans Johnny.

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck Ah, when on Fridays is it?

Marcus Hares

Marcus Hares "All tournaments will be single elimination 15 rounders played to the format shown and will start at 8pm unless otherwise stated."

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck Are there any better nights?

Marcus Hares

Marcus Hares For yours or mine?

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck For mine. Are there any nights when nothing in particular goes on in chat?

Marcus Hares

Marcus Hares Ok, apart from those dates shown in the link above you also have Zarte's Mole series which is still ongoing - I think they are on Wednesday and Saturday evenings. Thursdays are generally pretty free though.

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck I think I'm going to hold two qualifiers this week, one on Thursday and one Friday. In subsequent weeks I'll move it to Thursdays only. Is this a fair compromise?

Marcus Hares

Marcus Hares That's perfect, thank you

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck Less than an hour until the qualifier... Good luck, all...

Johnny Canuck Props to everyone who came out to support this event tonight! Don't forget, there's one more tomorrow too.

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck This week's teasers are now complete. Stay tuned for the next qualifier, which will be held immediately AFTER Marcus's ATP tourney tomorrow. Hope this is convenient with everyone.

Callum Todd

Callum Todd Oh is there not one tonight?

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck No, sorry, I can't run a qualifier tonight because I have a midterm exam tomorrow. Nice that you're paying attention though.

Callum Todd

Callum Todd Ah okay, I won't be around tomorrow night but hope it goes well. I'll manage to qualify for a week of this eventually! :)

Tourney round: MAXkerade: The Beginning

Notes from the organizer: If anyone has been paying attention to my forum signature during the past several weeks, you may have noticed a mysterious advertisement for something called MAXkerade... Be mystified no more... It is beginning...

~~~~~

MAXkerade is a tourney (or activity, if the word is more appropriate) based on a concept I've been plugging ever since I arrived on Apterous: chat teasers... Every so often, just as I always have, I will come into chat and post puzzles such as "Conundrum: IDONTCARE" or "max from OMGSHITEN?"... Except this time, you will be rewarded for them... Fun for all... Furthermore, this tourney respects people of all difficulty levels, with handicaps for newcomers, and is impromptu, meaning you won't have to wait for weeks while I procrastinate putting up new fixtures...

~~~~~

*** PLEASE SEE IMPORTANT NOTE AT BOTTOM OF PARAGRAPH ***

Weekly QUALIFIERS, each a 7-rounder in the form LLNLLNC, will be held on Friday nights, beginning sometime between 9:00 and 10:00 PM British Standard Time, in private chat... Anyone who wishes to join can simply say "In" just like other people's tourneys...

These qualifiers are played solo, and players will be classified into several ranks based on both ratings and qualifier scores, with handicaps granted to those who have lower ratings...

*** IMPORTANT ***
TO PARTICIPATE IN MAXKERADE FOR A GIVEN WEEK, YOU MUST PLAY THAT WEEK'S QUALIFIER; YOU CAN STILL SOLVE MY CHAT TEASERS, BUT YOU WON'T GET A REWARD

If Friday night is no good for you, I'd always be happy to set up advance qualifiers on different nights... Just PM me...

~~~~~

After qualifiers are complete, you will be PM'd and I will tell you what rank you are in... Then, you are free to begin solving teasers...

I will pre-assign a difficulty rating to each of my teasers; anyone who solves it will gain Experience Points based on a combination of the difficulty and the player's weekly rank... At the end of the week, all Experience Points will be tallied and added on a leader board that I will post to this page every Thursday...

From time to time, I will run sub-competitions or extra challenges (such as "Solve all 30 conundrums")... These will always be announced on one of these tourney pages...

This tourney has no set "beginning" or "ending", although there may be Championship

~~~~~

I will be running teasers almost daily unless I plan to be away from the Internet (in which case I will inform you in advance)... None will ever be posted after midnight BST, because that would probably be unfair...

Should you have any questions, please inform me in the sidebar... And yes, everything I say related to this tourney will end in an ellipsis...

The first MAXkerade qualifier will, once again, be held on JULY 4 at approximately 9:00 PM BST... Good luck to all...
