Hey! Are we going to have one big group? I think we should have two separate groups.
One for master and STs and one for players in gifted and lower. Maybe gifted players could ask to join the master/ST group if they feel good enough.
I think a two group setup would be more fun for everyone.
How many games are we going to play each player?
I think we should have two games. Because then matches can be drawn. Which is good for matchmaking in the swiss system. If we start the two games at the same time, the rounds are almost as long as a round with a single game. Each players also gets to pick a map each. Were in three games, and one game, one player would have the advantage.
( I am very familiar with the swiss system. I have played at least 100 chess tournaments, and been a chess tournament referee a couple times)
