RE: Invitation
# 4536
Name : Vladimir Nipoti – Bano

I am submitting my candidature for working in EL comitee.

I was born in Russia but now live in Czech Republic.

I think I fulfil requierements that are needed.

• My English is quite good. I can also speak czech, russian and polish in a comprehensible way, so I can be useful to understand chatting during the matches etc.

• I am member of Midi Rod team ( mrcdb ) and president of both Midi Rod teams, also boss of olsava :D

• I am also member of Czech Renju Federation and try to play all live tournaments.

• I organised a tourney in our school. It was something like qualification for big “High School Gomoku tournament“, where about 16 000 students took part. ( )

• I also came up with the idea of playing individual league – Czech gomoku league. ( )

I would like to propose :
• creating “euroleague blitz cup“. It would take place e.g. week after the last Sunday of EL in May. Teams would meet and play blitz time setting. It will be something like Cup of UEFA ( Europa league ).
• Zukole ( well known polish player ) as an “responsible expert of EL“. The reason is that he is often present on EL matches and knows many nicks and players. He can find up some players urgenty and ware them ( e.g. Kosek from Attack Team )

I think EL rules are almost ready and do not need any big changes. It works as it has to.

I will be glad to work in the committee.

Best wishes,

Seems Tomo was a bit faster, we wrote our replies in about the same time, so may be something is duplicite, but we didn't agree about this, was just a coincidence :)

RE: Attila's pp
# 4493
Well, as for now it is in the rules and if there is a protest we have to solve it regarding rules, opinions and voting of committee.
I don't think making exceptions is smart move here, few pp don't hurt anyone and it is more like a warning.
To make some differences between "better" and "worse" players I don't consider wise. And I am pretty sure we have more than 3 excellent players in our competition, for example yesterday 2 teams filled with excellent players played together :)

Yes, there are different opinions about this article of rules and some find it outdated. But some opinions say forbidding graying is not only about preventing the danger of using opening libraries or other gomoku programs. It is also about respect for the opponent, some find it annoying when the opponent doesn't seemingly pay attention to the game, someone wrote that it is as if he would say "I am so much better than you, that I can beat you easily even without concentrating and looking at the game", which can perhaps have demotivating and humiliating effect on the weaker player. Even a beginner playing with a master wants to enjoy the game, become better and be respected not dependent only on his skill level.

But of course, there can be discussion and really if some rule would be decided as obsolete or outdated, it can be changed or removed.

RE: Attila's pp
# 4492
Every team had confirmed to agree with the rules before EL started and the rules are the same for all of teams and for all of players. Nowhere is written that some (excellent) players can do things, which the others cant do. Noone never said that Attila was a cheater, he was gray too many times. Angst expained the reasons in #4432. If Committee thought, he was a cheater, he got harder punishment. I am sure we would have done the same to Fracass, Joking and to everybody, who would be gray so many times as Attila. I didnt watch the match, but one our member watched it and all members in the Committee believe each others.

5 pp dont mean almost anything. Attila and BC can play further, they didnt lose any game/match by wo for this reason. On the other hand this is a warning to everybody, who think that the rules are not valid for him. Committee cant do exception in this case.

Attila's pp
# 4490
I didn't say a thing regarding this matter , because we just finished the game , and i didn't want to create an awkward situation. Now that it has passed , i find it very hard to understand why would you penalize him . For blinking , like cheaters get pp ? If Attila is suspected of cheating , then there is no point in playing in EL . Not to mention that he is much better than any program .I would kindly suggest to make an exception , and erase those pp , i am sure many think this way .

This might sound like a joke , but when you have 2-3 excellent gomoku players in the competition , you should not treat one of them in that manner ... seriously it's unpleasant too see that:)(would you have done this to fracass or joking ?).

RE: 3vs3 mistake
# 4411
I don't think that the meaning of the fair play can be generalized by referring strictly to the rules.

First I'd like to remind that I'm not trying to change what already happened. I just want to bring some ideas that could be taken into consideration when the rules for the future (not this season) are being revised.

It is my personal opinion, that offering a chance for opponent to play 3 vs 3 is an act of fair play towards opponent team. I also believe that I'm not the only one with this opinion.

I agree, that having only 3 players available for a match is worth 13PP.

I don't agree that a team having 4 players present during all the match, but still chose to give a chance for opponent by playing 3 vs 3 would get also 13PP. That's too much.

But as Tomo said, defining different special scenarios for rules is problematic. And each special scenario may result having other complications that can't be easily foreseen. One problem is that you can't say if the fourth player is really available to play although he would be online.

RE: 3vs3 mistake
# 4410
To Marko:


It has nothing to do with fair play. Teams are supposed to come as team in 4 players. If they dont, its only their problems or their captain. The aim of that rule ( pp for playing in 3) is to make teams come in at least 4 players, as Ales told me long time ago. In my opinion, it is absolutely fair to play 4x3.

Best Regards,

2009-12-20 13:13:22 Tomo Dernovšek (jezek_si)
RE: 3vs3 mistake
# 4400
I understand your situation, but we (Committee) have to follow the rules. At this moment I think it would be problematic if we define different pp for different causes of nonplayed games because every time can someone want to get less pp for his special cause. We ll talk about your idea anyway.

I d like to tell you, that fair play is incuded in the rule 16: »If a team and all its players don't get any pp in the next 3 real rounds (not walkover or 'bye'), their penalty points will reduce for 2 penalty points for every next round.«

RE: 3vs3 mistake
# 4387
Hi, I understand by the rules that my team got 13 PP. However I'd like that for future or for next season you consider changing rules so, that for fair play intentions (for example giving a chance for opponent to play 3 vs 3), will not result in so many PP. Comparing the PP result of this caused by good intentions is clearly not in line with other penalties.

Br, Marko

RE: .
# 4318
Sorry Michał, but if you want to play in Euroleague, one of the conditions is to read the rules. To play in EL = to accept its rules. Otherwise you shouldn't do that. So now you shouldn't complain and gripe at rules.

Me and my teammates were prepared for the match on the agreed date and we have to look for a new date. OK, perhaps we'll find some new because we want to play but it's a little annoyance for us now.

Hope the match itself will better than this.

RE: Outsiders : Klub Rzeszow
# 4316
To be more specific, it happened because of this:

6.2.2. If no team creates an offer in first seven days of the round, then the first offer created from 8th day (from monday at 00:01) is automatically accepted.

And if you don't agree, it would be preferred if you could respond within 3 days from my offer ;)

Hi vilu,
you don't need to think, just read rules, system handles it automatically...
You can suggest different match date by withdraw offer or discussion using messages in match date section.

Yeah, Paulie is right:) Let's force to play more live tournaments!
Besides Euroleague, we will start the Offline (e-mail) Gomoku World Championship. Details later.

RE: Change in games of Euroleague.
# 4149
I must deeply disagree (and I hope I speak now for all Woodenheads) with any proposal which includes the increasing of number of rounds in Euroleague.
9 rounds are evidently good enought to decide fairly the champion, and by my opinion also good enought to give the opportunity to meet equal teams each other.
But if you don´t think so, than I consider the Attila´s proposal of ABC leagues as far more reasonable.
However, it is very nice, that you are so enthusiastic players, that you want to play also during the exam time and maybe even vacations. It is my pleisure than to invite you to join us in some live tournaments (as e.g. the past WC in Pardubice). I´m sure it can meet your needs enought:-)

i agree with rakdar , 11 rounds or more would be better . I propose to let captains vote on this matter .
