    I really want to enter tournaments, but I don't have enough money right now to subcribe. WOuld any non-subs be interestde in organizing a tournament ourselves? we could message the brackets or matchups and things like that.....looking for about 16 people right now, let me know if interested...

    it probably be better for someone on the site for a while to start it...what type were you looking for?

    what do you mean? ANd the type of tournament would probably single elimination although i'm not sure.....it depends on waht people would want, and I don't see why I would have to be on the site for a long time to start a tournament.

    oh, just to know what style of stuff you like... probably make it like a mini banded duel would be good..

    there's a bunch in progress.. I started one and then two others did... it's honestly not worth it. Big job and if someone leaves the site it's a waste... plus agreeing on time controls and getting everyone to open a slot.. a pain truly

    Not really, my brother is a subscriber and he doesn't get to do a whole lot more than I do, and I still don't have $30...would anyone be interested in giving me $30?

    I'd love to play in a non-subscriber tournament, and I'd be happy to reserve a spot for it. I have three friends who play on-site who would probably join, too.

    If someone leaves the site, could that person's games count as resignations?

    Hello MacBone, do you want to organise the tournament?

    If a person leaves the site and the other person is taking the timeout it is automatically a win for the latter.

    I'll leave it to merman to try to organize this tournament, but I have several interested people that want to join.
