One of the things that the WCO is known for is having the scheduling of the games done in private messages. This allows to keep easy overview of all the games. In round 1 not all the games were scheduled yet while we were preparing the wizard. How many games will be scheduled for the last play day for Round 2?
C 2 or 3
E 5 or more
In a Swiss tournament it is possible to have a late entry. In live tournaments this happens sometimes, people get late due to travelling first time to a new location, finding out their map is out of date, there are road works or cows on the road, it is snowing etcetera. What happens if they are in time for the later rounds, they can still enter the tournament.
For an online tournament cows on the road are unlikely to stop people from signing up. The WCO allows late entries however in line with other Swiss tournaments. Last year we had at least one late entry, queenbee.
How many late entries will there be in WCO3?
A 0 It doesnt happen a lot, so doesnt happen this year. Besides I didn't see any snow or cows.
B 1-3 (At least one from Greece)
C 1-3 (At least one from The Netherlands)
D 1-3 From other countries. (Hello France, where are your top players? Anyone from Spain perhaps? Or are there more Baltic players? )
E 4 or more players from any country. Just trying to be positive based on the initial record breaking signup.
