I decided to step out from my online activity for reasons that I don't want to announce public and make new troubles.

Also I will not take part to the upcoming online Greek tournaments.

 

I signed in because I have the right to sign in.

And mostly when I signed in I wanted to be active in online and take part to all tournaments but now I decided that not suits me anymore and I will focus only at live tournaments.

As organiser, I don't like it much either, but ultimately, we can only respect a player's withdrawl. It's much preferred over simply going inactive and ruining the experience of others.

 

Whether one's reasoning is " legitimate " or not, is, I think, not up to us to decide, but lies with the withdrawling player. Some players may have unexpected IRL issues, sudden lack of motivation or whatsoever - if anything, we should appreciate the fact those players recognize this and take their responsibility.

Hello WCO Team.
Can anyone enlighten me as to what happens e.g. to Kambia's Buch score (after US withdrawal) ?

The first game will count as 6:1 (thus give her 1). Per unplayed round for U.S., it will generate half of the available points per match, so 7 (6+1) /2 = 3.5

Thanks for your understanding and I apologize for any inconvenience at WCO

Mathematically speaking this average is not correct. If you have 49% chance to get a win, 49% chance to get a loss and 2% chance to get a draw the average is ((49x7)+6)/100=3.49
If you don't know where you go ... you have a lot of chance to arrive elsewhere ...

No, it is correct, I stated the maximum amount of points to be distributed are 7, not that those 7 would be distributed no matter what.

For those who are waiting for next game maybe you like some mathematics while waiting. Question is what is the maximum theoretical Buch a wco player can obtain after round 10 and what should be the final ranking of such player?

As you know Buch is the some of the results of all the other players with whom such player has played. So logically the theoretical maximum Buch is for the player whose 10 opponents are those who will rank as top ten after round 10, but is it theoretically possible to have been matched with the top 10? Assuming it is possible this is my proposal:

maximum Buch with wco of 74 players is 467 while the rank of the player reaching such Buch schould be 24. See detailed calculation attached. Rationale is all games that ended in a draw should be exchanged for 1 win 1 loss as it provides 3.5 points on average instead of 3 with draws. So substituting all draws of the top ten with 3.5 instead of 3 makes reach the maximum Buch as would have been reached in wco 2017. For the rank of such player the rationale is that such player would lose his last game against who will be ranked 10th after round 10, so if 10th player has a score of 40 it means that the player with maximum Buch is ranked 40-5=35 and he is the first player ranked with 35 because he precisely has the maximum Buch.

Does anybody have a rationale prooving that the theoretical maximum Buch would be higher than 467 with 74 players? Any idea how the maximum theoretical Buch evolves with the number of players?

I know it's only after round 4 but the 18-21 spots are very interesting to not see each of these players in the top 7. I know with time this will change but it's still a bit weird to see at any part of the tournamet. If it was one or two, it would be more believable but to see all four in a row that far down...what an unlikely oddity!
