I have added an experimental 0 day timeout tournament.
If this works well, then more will follow.
Nice to see this idea in practice!
With this format, the sorts of large knockout tournaments that with 7 day timeouts last for half an eternity could become a viable option again.
How about this:
0 day timeout / 40 day timebank
max players 128
Such a tournament would still last long of course, but it would be guaranteed to finish in a little more than 9 months at most (if my calculations are correct). I think I could handle one 0/40 day game at a time for the next 9 months....
(Also, if it is feasible, for this sort of a tournament the automatic timeout should kick in immediately after the 40 days are up, I think. At least to me, this format looks more like a time-control game, where the limits should be more strictly enforced.)
