Just want to let organizer know that I have a message in my mailbox regarding this event. However, when I click on to open message, comes back with error indicating tournament not found.

I too have played the first (last) two days with no sign of results. No way I did well enough on day 1 to make the top 8.

Interface shows I'm still registered for the tournament (yellow) even after I played the boards. It won't let me play again.

This is strange. It's advertised as a KO, but I don't know whom I am playing against. On day two, I see no results of day one. Just like Peter, I doubt I played well enough to qualify for day two under the mysterious secret hidden format allegedly going from 63 players to 8 players in a single KO round. Yet I am shown as enrolled for day two, with no further message anywhere.

Are you guys sure this was ready for beta-testing? I am annoyed that I joined, to be honest.

EDIT: Registrations closed.

The Tournament is posted in COMPETITIVE -> Free Tournaments. Look for the BBO Forums Challenge KO. You can click to play it, everyone who voted is pre-registered.

It will be very quick for this first attempt:

Day 1 - Monday. Qualifiers. Field gets reduced to 8
Day 2 - Tuesday. Quarterfinals.
Day 3 - Wednesday. Semifinals.
Day 4. Tursday. Finals.



Hi Diana
Where can I find the results of day 1 and day 2?

Thank you!

A few updates on this test, sorry for the delay but lots of things going on with BBO this week!

1. The movement is not what I said it will be, sorry. Looks like the way elimination works is:

Head to Head KOs, but also

Everyone ranked by their score in an overall leaderboard.

Top 8 move forward.

So it's more like a "Daylong KO" than a pure challenge KO, sorry. I misunderstood the format.

2. There was a server crash that messed up the tourney. Pretty sure it is now corrupted.

We'll try again after this one expires.

Ah well...

That's what beta testing is about.

Whether or not I should have been playing, I've been offered, and played, four rounds. I assume that these were advanced robots, because they played fairly well.

Let us know when the next round of testing starts, I'll be happy to help.

At least it claims daily that is has been started the day before and that I have completed all boards without me playing one ... :)

Yeah I asked one of our programmers to close it by hand today.

For me too it played R1 correctly. I got eliminated (unfair, but such is life).

Then from Day 3 it allowed me to play daily.

So dunno... it's hard to tell when it's combined with a system crash.

The scoring is also trying to cater to all 4 days I think, the numbers are very strange :) Feels like the old days playing JEC!

We'll see what we can learn and try again.

Meanwhile, congratulations to our experimental KO winners:


1st place: toast1
2nd place: mlbridge
3rd place: Heart76

Thanks all for participating. Stay tuned :)
