Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

Championship Tournament 2016 Round 1: RBerenguel and Chalhub did not move at all, never showed up, and were removed from the tournament tables. Teondrae did one move in some games and zero moves in the rest, before timing out in all games, and was also removed from the tournament tables. TheBloodyJ...

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

A very accurate, alternative calculation of Round 2 groups. Accurate method for distributing the players to Round 2 groups: One or more "ghostplayers" are added to smaller Round 1 groups, so that all groups will have the same number of players. The "ghostplayers" are given ratings so that all group...

Re: Gaming activity

Having completed 3 of my 4 T cross games I see there are a severe lack of viable openings for white to exploit. Or at least none that I can see. Black seems to have an epic advantage blocking anything white tries to do to get out and create a gap. Yes the game balance was measured -1.60, 160 black ...

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

let's say that vonraider loses his remaining 2 games, and remains on 7 points. That's 7 points out of a possible 14, whereas Helfrich has 7 points out of a possible 12. 7/12 is more than 7/14, so it seems to me, in that case, that Helfrich should be favoured. However, if Vonraider wins one of his r...

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

Your removal of two games wins does not seem 'cricket' to me. It is unfair that I or others in my first round grouping should be penalized because some non-serious entry didn't finish any of his games. That player should not have been 'wiped' from the tourney records either: historical records coun...

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

Distribution of players to Championship Tournament 2016 Round 2 groups. Players in the small forum are discussing the 2016 Round 2 distribution. Here's a copy of the discussion: 2016-10-04 23:09:51 HELFRICH: Curious that I cannot find myself in any category of the final round, or am i misinterpreti...

Re: Gaming activity

Sigurd and Tuireann asked about the "Nielsen layout". http://aagenielsen.dk/board_tablutnielsen13_r.png http://aagenielsen.dk/board_tablutnielsen15_r.png The "Nielsen" setups are natural extensions of board setups from 11x11 into boards 13x13 and 15x15. They are only tested with a few test games, g...

Access to Tablut T cross 11x11 is opened, so that Tuireann can study its shortcomings.

Re: Gaming activity

(In small forum) perhaps the site features one variant per month for competition? (In small forum) To encourage more play on those variants, perhaps Tournaments....☺ (In small forum) I was hoping there would be a Tablut tournament some time after the championship was over. :p Until now, most of the...

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

This would help eliminate last minute fake profiles and false ratings, as well as discourage those not serious about competing. Any undisclosed double entries should result in both user names being deleted from the federation if found out. if we are getting fake entries / false ratings I appreciate...
