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 10 rounds and the tournament points are summed up. All Hivechess-related post rewards are pooled and 80% 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)!

  • There will be special prices for the highest overall tournament performance and the highest performance in relation to the own rating (counted by averaging the rating after the first and the last round)

  • 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!

  • If you have not yet joined our team in Lichess, please do it here, so that you can participate (required for the Swiss tournaments only).

Please share this announcement among your (chess) friends and colleagues!
The more participate, the more fun! And maybe some are even interested to join Hive and it´s Chess Community?

See you tomorrow and good luck to all!

I have noticed that on the Hive-Engine someone has created a CHESS token via a @chesstoken account. Any clue who is behind that project?

Kein Problem, man muss nicht immer teilnehmen 😃
Aber zur Info, wenn man weniger als 3x dabei ist, gibt es keinen Preis!
