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.

Stanislav Ilyin

Martin! Thank you very much for this publication! I think that Stanislav will be pleased by it very much and it brings him new energy to improve the program and the interface, which is not perfect, I agree (but it is definitely of it own style). The only mistake you made is by identifying Stanislav. This program was created and is developed by Stanislav Ilyin (not Petrov, the riichi player whom you'll see soon in Hanover) way) from the city of Krasnoyarsk, some 4000 km east from Moscow (: http://www.mahjong.ru/images/stories/msk09/PA244023_1.jpg

No need to tank me, Mark! It is Stanislav who did a great job.
I am sorry about the mistake with his name, have corrected that now.
Greetings - Martin
