Free chess/UU tutoring for UU players Neigh. Perf.
I’d support making the requirements easier for DPP UU cup since as it is, it’s 5 games played with 4 wins (that’s what reaching semifinals means).
That seems unreasonably harder than 3 games and 1 win in the team tours.
I think the main counter argument is that there’s some screening mechanism for team tours. 3 points in response: 1) I don’t think we’re necessarily good at screening, particularly for UUWC as the screening isn’t really skill based 2) getting further in an individual tour is harder anyways and 3) the pool in DPP UU cup is very strong anyways.
therefore I suggest making the reqs reaching round 3 or round 4 of dpp uu cup instead of round 5 (semis).
Side note to this discussion: I still think I'm right and hope whoever organizes this will agree with me.
Here's how voting would expand if you follow my suggestion.
If we let round 4 vote:
- From 2021 gen4uu cup, we get
- From 2020 gen4uu cup we get
- From 2021 gen4uu cup, we get:
- From 2020 gen4uu cup, we get:
A few notes:
If you do agree with me, please double check the lists before using them. I did this quickly.
It doesn't matter that much if you're tagged and don't want to vote still. The argument I'm making is that making round 3 or round 4 of this tournament is just as significant as playing 3 games in the team tours with 1 win. Which I think is completely fair because to make it to round 3/4, you have to win 2-3 games and play 3-4, which in sheer numbers is the same or more as the team tour reqs.
Also, making the gen4uu cup even harder is that all matches are best of 3, compared to best of 1 in the team tours. So honestly, even round 3 of gen4uu cup you're playing significantly more gen4uu games than the current team tour reqs.
