How do you start an online game?

World and European championships provide ideal space for maneuvring, both in terms of number of sessions and participants. Purely random (still with constraint of team or country) scheme does not seem to reasonable at all -- though to use it as a part of any other scheme looks acceptable. IMHO, best scenario is: equally-matched scheme to days 1-2, then top 20-25% struggle within a group for prizes + side-event for the rest of players.

But what about the idea to split a tournaments in two at certain point? (One can use "stepping", for instance, cut top-24 after session 4, then top-16 after next session, then top-12 etc.).
In ma-any other sports it is quite acceptable that "toppers" play THEIR event fighting for the prizes while all others may play in "side-event" which still may gather a bunch of players (and may be processed separately, with lower MERS coefficient).
And, surely, such schemes are pointless for 1-day events.

Second day may require more time between session to organise proper sitting. Please, be careful here, "more" in this case means that 15 min is no good though 20-30 minutes is quite acceptable. Current software provides "no-problems" seating (say, in 5 min) for 6 sessions starting from 32 players, 8 sessions -- starting from 60 players. More players-sized 2-day events are welcome (they are easier to be calculated)!

Now, let's move to "longer tournaments" as stated.
2-days event may use 6-10 sessions, depending on rules, transportation factor (somebody needs to catch a train?), cultural program etc. Sophisticated software (like RiTour.exe) may produce seating for the first 4 session right "on spot", so the first day is "clean" for organisers. Of cause, provided there is no protocol errors.

Mah Jong Time

These are really bad news. I like to play at Mah Jong Time for a long time and I also plaid a lot of tournaments there. Last year I've got an invitation to Macau including all for free and it was a grandiose adventure. I know Slava personally and I wish him and his team the very best and hope Mah Jong Time will excist for a long time.

We regret the way things turned out, but only MJT can give answers. I agree that if MJT doesn't make it, this is a bad thing for mahjong in general, but perhaps there are lessons to be learned here as well.

To Otto: you may notice that the website of MJT was last updated around the end of August, so don't look for any news there. The fact that the site is outdated (as is the ranking) and that the foreseen update to the interface is delayed, doesn't promiss a lot of good...

Dear All,
I read alot here now and I see that why only make mjt to sponsor? Only one time or two times last minute cancellation and everyone jump off? Isn't this very unfair?

Perhaps, all the mahjong clubs should chip-in to help to organise such tournaments rather just point fingers to anyone who just did not make something happens.

I really hope mjt could be as aggressive as before again. GOOD LUCK!!! MJT!!!!
