Good news Dan!
How old is he?

Looking forward to meet you both soon!

Hello OVERLORD, I am 17 (sadly). My father told me you are the best player, but this was before I joined the WC  :P

Nice. :)
It's actually the first time I hear you mention him, is he an experienced player?

My father teached me since I was born, but I haven't played for a long time because I'm a bigggg star wars fan and play star wars battlefront where I went into quarters final…. Now I want to show my dad who is the boss  ;)

I won't be attending but I would love to see some video of the event, maybe even a live stream of some games or something.

 

I will come with my go pro nd try to make some Editing, but I need to know if organisers are ok if I record and if participants are ok to be recorded. I would use records only to have a good memory of this WC

I also have a question :

 

When I play in real life, and make an attack or get attacked, I say the name of the piece, is that allowed or must it be silent and show the piece?

I am wondering about the whether conditions in Holland. I mean it is summer but i presume Greek summer is totally different from Dutch summer. Here we have 33 C which is considered mild for August. In Holland i would expect 22-25, am i correct? Could someone enlighten me?

Probably not of the games. Best bet is to contact the organising team (contact details are in the invitation document) about it to be sure. We've not really thought about it.

6.3 Moving, attacking and winning your
opponent‟s piece
 take your own piece in your hand
 touch or turn the opponent‟s piece
show and mention the rank of your
own piece
 take the opponent‟s piece
 (- press the clock)
 put the piece visible in your box
 (-if not done before: press the clock)

Re: live webcam view. What if the table setup is like in the Dutch championships, with several rows of 4 board next to each other. You could mount a permanent webcam that doesn't show any piece identity, but still shows the top 4 boards and players, as well as the progress of the game etc. Having this on a live website would be awesome!

Napo Jr, what a cool surname !

 

Well livestream would be hard as I Don't have a laptop (ask Napo to invest some money for me ) 

I would record every day and make a small Editing and then post it here or send it via email or on YT. I Don't know if there is a livestream fonction on go pro, maybe you know it?

It's the Hero black 6

If the IFS would be ok with the idea, it would be non-intrusive to the tournament if a view of the result screen at an angle you could see people playing at a distance.

Napo, would you be willing to invest this if Napo Jr. became our media guy with ISFs permission?

Napo Jr, would you be willing to invest more into this community with your skills if Napo did you this favour?

Well, yeah but he won't invest as I got a fix PC...

He has a laptop so I will see what I can do with his, although I still don't know if it's possible to livestream ! Because the go pro can record around 1 hour with a good quality. I can push it to around  if I buy a second memory card, then when one is charging, second one is recording ect....

Point is, I'm not sure of the livestrea mreally real time, what if it is.. 1 hour late? And where do I post it as it is a video, to send a link I may put it into YT.

 

Last thing, is there a wifi connection in the arsenal?

I can organise to write the results in an informatic way too, is it a good idea or you are already ok for that part?
