    No, still on, message broadcast going out shortly promoting it. Things just got delayed after the recent server foul-up.

    I think that with groups of 15, a single round robin (giving everyone 7 white and 7 black games) would be sufficient.

    Having 28 games at once at this tempo, is overstretching for many I would think.

    I wonder why we non-paying slaves also get the message, only to get hit in the face with You Must Be A Subscriber To Enter Bring up a few "Holiday Cheers" in my mind! Thank you for the Starless Duel though.

    It says pairing is random like all tournaments so is there a possibility of the top 15 being in 1 section together and the bottom 15 together...
    I mean imagine a 900 being in the final...

    Agree on your format. Too many games all at once reduces quality of play.
