After the small break Season 9 will start this Friday 29th Oct, 19h GMTat the usual time! It will go (nomen est omen) over 9 rounds and close app. at the end of 2021!

Few changes from previous seasons: The points for each round are distributed via the "Lighteye system", after @lighteye had suggested it here. So all players will get more points. Let´s give it a try and see what effect is has!
Also I will track in this season for the first time each players performance. It is more work, but (together with the point distribution system) should significantly improve the correctness of the ranking. Especially for the players with 0 points in previous season the ranking was not resembling the performance but was rather random.
The season winner will in addition get a unique NTF. Suggestions for motives are highly welcome and will be upvoted accordingly!

Time Mode: 5+1 (5 minutes per game, 1 sec. increment), 70min arena mode, no streaks

RULES

  • For Hivers, Steemians, Blurters, noise.cashers and all others!

  • Players of all skill levels are welcome, from newbies to experts, you just need a free Lichess-account!

  • Every Friday is one round

  • Time mode is varying (5+0, 3+2,...), rated, berserking allowed (except in Swiss mode)

  • The winner of each round gets the number of points equaling the number of players in that round, the second ranked one point less and so forth until the one on the bottom of the table who gets one point.

  • Occasionally a round may be divided into 2 skill classes

  • In case two players have the same number of points, the one who played less rounds is first. If that is equal too, then the average tournament performance decides.

  • PAYOUT: This season goes over 9 rounds and the tournament points are summed up. All Hivechess-related post rewards are pooled and 90% go to the price pool (PP). The tournament winner will get 25 Hive bonus, a unique NFT trophy and the rest of the PP is divided among all players according to the number of tournament points achieved, but only if a player has participated at least 3 times (if <3 games are played in a round it will be not counted)!

  • If I don´t know your Hive username, I can´t consider you in the final rankings, so please let me know your Hive name in the comments or in the Lichess chat!

предлагаю баллы за игры до 5мин вообще не начислять, там красивых партий практически не бывает:)I suggest not to add points for games up to 5 minutes at all, there are practically no beautiful games there:)
Или множить их на контрољOr multiply them by control

They are less meaningful, but there is more of them per round. And also in bullet the better players prevail. So why not count?

Shouldn’t that be NFT, @stayoutoftherz? Non Fungible Token?
