Update now that tournament has begun:
The bracket has been created, with the player on top playing white and the player below playing black. We would like all games in the first round to be completed within the next four days, and suggest you guys use discord chats with players to best facilitate this. Once you have a time, please contact myself or Trains.








Update: 02-07:
Signups are closed due to us having 32 players, if you really want to play message me on discord and I'll see what I can do.


With the addition of a live chess board at /warp chess, it's finally time for the server's very first live chess tournament! Myself and Trains are proud to present...

4673

The Mathwiz Chess Championship, named after the famed creator of Chess Game, is a chess competition taking place entirely in Minecraft! Using the in-game chess board, players will duke it out in instant elimination rounds until we have a Mathwiz Chess Champion!

The tournament will commence this Friday 3rd July, and players will be able to organize their own games to ensure everybody who wants to can participate no matter their schedule.

For the first round, players will be randomly sorted into 16 matches, and the victor will progress to the next round while the loser will fall into a consolation bracket that will run alongside the main bracket. For the second round and onward, a loss means instant elimination. For the third round and onward, matches will be best-of-three.

Matches will consist of a single game of chess played using a chess timer where each side gets 30 minutes. The side a player plays on will be decided randomly. A player will be declared the victor if they checkmate their opponent, or their opponent runs out of time. In the event of a stalemate, the game will be played again. In the event of another stalemate, the winner will be whoever has the most time remaining.

Don't worry, Trains won't be playing as he's a co-host.

If you have any questions, feel free to comment here or message either of us on discord. To sign up, please leave a comment or react to this post with a thumbs up. We'd encourage everybody to sign up, and look forward to having some fun games!

I would play but then ill lose my spot in wt3
If you're expecting to be in WT3 for the next few days it's probably best not to sign up yet, but if you do get out before Friday please put your name down, the more the better!

The event will begin on Friday and there will be a timeframe set for each round of probably a few days but it ultimately depends on how many signups we get.
