I have sent out another large batch of invitations this evening, basically to players who entered the FOG2DL in Season 3 (but not Season 4) and to those players in the current automated tournament who have never played in the FOG2DL at all. I will send a reminder invitation to current FOG2DL players at the weekend. Please ask any reliable players you know to join up. Thanks.

We are up to 35 players now and this morning I have sent reminders to all the current FOG2DL players who are yet to sign up. Recruitment will close at the end of Wednesday 27th March. It may be that we do not reach the magic number of 64 players so there could be some first round byes. The draw for the 1st Round will take place live on the forum at 9am UK time Friday 29th March.

Re: The Discussion thread . . .

It seems very certain now that we are not going to reach the magic number of 64 players this year. The numbers joining are well down from 2018 and are likely to be around 40. What this means is that less than half the players who have entered are likely to get a first round match because there are going to be a lot of first round byes. So what I can do is draw the first and second round pairings at the same time and allow 3 weeks for all these matches to be completed. The reason I want to do this is that I am concerned that some players might drift away from the tournament if they do not get a match on April 1st.

To explain more clearly how this would work we can use the current number of entrants, which is 38, as an illustration. In order to get 32 players playing in the 2nd round (in KO tournaments the sequence of players participating in each round has to go 64-32-16-8-4-2), there would have to be 6 first round matches (involving 12 players) leaving 26 players with byes. The 6 winners are added to the 26 byes to make 32. So what I would do if I still had 38 players on Friday is to draw out 6 first round matches first. Then, I would draw out 13 second round matches from the remaining 26 players so those players could start their matches at the same time as the first round matches. Everybody will be playing at the start. The final part of the second round draw would see me draw the last 3 matches from the 6 first round pairings (e.g. winner of Match 3 will play winner of Match 6 and so on).

For this to work I will need an even number of participants so from now on I am going to allow new players to register in 2's. so a new player signing up now will be a reserve unless a second player signs up. Then they will both be able to enter and the procedure starts again.

All this probably seems unnecessarily complicated, but I think it will work OK - and it will ensure everybody has a match from the outset. :wink:
