New change to improve attendances

 

Welcome to the August issue of the newsletter. We have completed four weeks now which amounts to 12 tournaments. Disappointingly, the attendance figures have not been as high as I envisaged.


The knock-on effect of this means that a few teams have not even been able to have four players scoring in a week. One recent tournament (the 11pm) had only four players in it, the lowest ever in UIC Swiss. We should be attracting at least a dozen players in every tournament and we need to encourage better participation. So it's now time for ACTION!


WHAT IS THE PLAN?

We are going to allow players to participate in no more than TWO tournaments per week. I discussed this with Sandi and Shelle (the two other main Admins) a few weeks ago and they both approved this concept. Afterall, we allowed it in UIC Swiss 7-Speed and it was successful. I have made it clear to them that we would see how the attendances pan out in the opening weeks of the season. Now we have reached a quarter of the season and it's time to bring in the change.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Rules have been changed to reflect the fact that you can now play in no more than two tournaments per week. You do not have to, of course, but the option is there. You can play in any two of the three tournaments we run each Friday. However, you cannot play in all three – if you do play in all three, all your scores will count as void and a penalty will be imposed. If you choose to play in one tournament, as before, that is fine – it is purely an option aimed at those who enjoy playing UIC Swiss.


WHAT ARE THE RULE CHANGES?

Rule 1.3: Pre-determined geographic regions will form the teams, which consist of a minimum of four players per team. A maximum of 15 players from each team may participate in each week and up to 15 may jump one individual tournament. A player can participate in no more than two tournaments per week.


Rule 1.6: A points system will apply to both the team standings and individual standings as directed on the official website. The four leading scores from each team will apply towards the team standings each week. These four scores can come from one or any of the tournaments. The scores of all participants will count in the individual standings. Where a player plays in two tournaments, an average of his or her total points will be used for the individual standings, to the nearest whole figure. Where the figure is on .5, the higher score will count. A player's two scores will count towards the team standings where a team has less than four players.


EXAMPLES OF THE INDIVIDUAL SCORING

Here is an example of how the individual scoring would work. If I played in the 3pm and scored a 3–2, my points would be 8. If I then played in the 7pm and scored a 4–1shared win, my points would be 11. Simply by adding the two points tallies together would give 19, divided by the two tournaments I played. This gives an average of 9.5. Under Rule 1.6, this would be rounded up to 10. So my average score for that particular week would be 10.


Another example: Raza scores a 5–0 outright win in the 7pm (14 points) and plays in the 11pm with a score of 3–2 (8 points). So his average would be 14 + 8 = 22, divided by two = 11. In this case, Raza would be worse off by playing in the second tournament, because instead of gaining 14 points, he would score just 11.


And finally a third example... Lee scores 1–4 in the 3pm (6 points) and then goes 3–2 in the 11pm (8 points). His tally is 6 + 8 = 14, divided by two = 7. So by doing better in the 11pm, Lee has improved his individual score by one point.


CAN A PLAYER'S SCORE COUNT TWICE IN THE TEAM STANDINGS?

The answer is yes – but ONLY if there are fewer than four players. Where a team has four players taking part, the four scores will count. Where a team has more than four players participating, then the leading four scores will count. In cases where there are fewer than four players playing for any particular team, both scores of one player could count.


Example: Rauf, Raza and Omkar are the only players representing Asia. But Raza plays twice – so his two scores, plus the scores of Rauf and Omkar will count. If Rauf and Raza both play twice, and Omkar once, giving fives scores, the leading four scores will count.


HOPING FOR BETTER ATTENDANCES

Of course, playing twice can work in your favour or it can go against you – the choice to play is yours! But most importantly, it allows players who want to play UIC Swiss the opportunity to play again, and, of course, will improve attendance figures. We all want as many players to take part as possible. Hopefully, this new concept will allow our tournaments to be filled with more participants.


So it's a win-win situation – you get to play twice (if you want) and UIC Swiss sees better attendances, which in turn makes the whole competition more competitive and enjoyable.


WILL THIS IDEA RUN FOR THE REST OF SEASON 24?

I intend to trial this new idea for the next four weeks and then access the situation. If it runs smoothly and we see improvements, then it will be retained for the remainer of the season. If there are flaws then we might return to how it was for Weeks 1 to 4 inclusive.
