Re: Triplechain

One other notable DC note: tomorrow (2 June 2020) marks the 10th anniversary of the first TripleChain Daily Challenge. Just three players participated -- Mikus beat out Zac and Sugartastic to win the inaugural DC.

It took a couple weeks to catch on, but by 22 June 2010, the DC was getting 50 players a day. DC volume peaked a week a later with 64 participants, but it was still getting 40+ players well into 2011.

Happy 10th anniversary, TC DC!

Re: Triplechain

2020 Summer Match-Play Championship

It is time for the 2020 Summer Match-Play Championship. The winner in 2018 was Paul101, and ArcticKnight in 2019. A yellow trophy is up for grabs for the 2020 winner.

Format
-It is a head-to-head (H2H) match play tournament with the winner of each match advancing to the next round. The loser is out.
-Each H2H match will be 50 games played over a period of 20 days (maximum).
-Seeding will be based on the Triplechain tournament ratings on June 10th. Seeding will be done in exactly the same way that the TC site is programmed to seed the first and subsequent rounds of any multi-player tourney. (NOTE - There could be some 1st round byes.)
-If fewer than 8 players register the tourney will not run.


Please DO NOT register if you can't commit to play 50 games in 20 days. (Obviously, if you win your 1st round you will be playing another 50 games in the next 20 days against a different player, and so on).

Because I will be manually creating the 50 game H2H matches, you can't register for the tournament in the normal fashion. Instead you MUST post in this forum or on chatroll on the Triplechain site that you are registering for the tournament. Registration will close at 11:00PM ET on Wednesday June 10th. NO LATE ENTRIES.

I will post further instructions on chatroll when the tourney starts. On June 11th you can expect to see the match-ups for the first round here and on chatroll and I will create the H2H tournaments and people can join their match and begin.

Quick shoutout to Zac! Not sure what backend work you might be doing but it fixed my tourny counter. Always appreciated

Re: Triplechain

The matches are set for Round 1 of the 2020 Summer Match Play Tourney

Please join your match within the next 3 days (or it will close). Be sure to join your match...lol

All 50 Round 1 games must be completed by July 2nd at 11PM ET. Game not completed will count as losses.

The entire draw is below.

NOTE: Kscully88 and Shadowdodger did not have a tourney rating for seeding, but Shadowdodger has a higher DC rating so I put him as the 15 seed.

Re: Triplechain

I was hoping for an odd number and lucking into a round 1 bye to get into the second round. Oh well.
