Re: [TPA3] Mastermind (48/48) Round 1 is all over! 12th Nov

While I don't have an issue with giving a time limit to finish games, it is contingent on providing enough time for the players to position themselves for the end-game and making sure every player knows the deadline directly via PM or post in game chat. It appears that neither of those actions took place here as well as the deadline coming too quickly. If you're going to impose a deadline to finish the active games in a round, those games need to actually be holding up the tournament, not just keeping the tournament from moving quickly. You issued your 1 week warning when the games were barely 2 weeks old, which is WAY too quickly to force the issue. In contrast, I gave players a two week warning in one tournament where the games had already been played for well over 2 months. And arbitrarily deciding that only 2/3 of the players get to play their games to full length is not fair to players simply because they're paired with others who play slowly or are in different time zones.

As such, you need to allow the Round 1 games to play out to their conclusion at this point. If you still have the same games active in about 6-8 weeks, you can then consider instituting a time limit for them to finish. Also, you'll want to consider simply splitting points among players who are remaining in the games, especially if they're foggy games. A simple territory count is not always an accurate way to assess who is winning a foggy game.

When I look at the grid on page 1 , you have round 1 (presumably match 1) as someone else winning the game in group H. Do you need to redo the results after you finished off the round early?

Can I also suggest for future, if you do decide to change rules midway through a tourney, you at least PM everyone so we are aware. Just because one person wasn't happy with the speed of his games, doesn't mean the rest of us aren't more than happy to play within the rules we initially singed up for.

That decision was mine, and based on no other input (which was slightly stupid in hindsight)

It might be a good idea to start new games with a round limit?

Those games won't finish and we hit a brick wall.

For the two games still going on they have two weeks to finish.

I will use the criteria I said I would use before, unless anybody has any better idea for foggy games.

I seem to be unable to edit the OP. "The dimensions of the image can't be determined". So, I apologise for the lack of updates.

CC doesn't seem to be liking my image. So sorry for the slightly lacklustre finale; but the winner is ... ndrs.

It went to the last game and ndrs pinched the victory from slats789 at the death, winning by 1 pass to 2 passes.
