New type of tournament

I propose a new type of tournament that does not have a timer active for the game.

A move timer instead of game timer.

You will not run out of time while playing game as long as you make a move at least once every 30 seconds.

If you fail to make a move in the allotted time, you forfeit the game.

I think this kind of tournament would be a nice addition to chess cube

Thoughts and suggestions welcome.

Re: New type of tournament

That is an interesting idea. I would like that. There is already something like that with increment time controls already. So maybe chesscube could expand the time controls they offer that have a custom time with increments. This would only work for regular non-tournament games though.

Re: New type of tournament

a) how is having a timer of 30 seconds per move not having a timer?

b) would a game never end on time, then? (the next round would never start)

Re: New type of tournament

I only suggested a 30 second move timer so the player has to make a move within a period of time. That avoids
the problem of a loosing player waiting for hours or days to make a move, plus a tournament must have
players making moves on a regular basis.

b) would a game never end on time, then? (the next round would never start)


Tournament games would end in either a mate, a draw, or time forfeit, then the next round would start.
A draw could also be cause by reaching the maximum number of allowed moves in a game.



The idea is to have a chess tournament that gives a player a reasonable amount of time to place a move,
while allowing the game to be completed without a game timer causing the win or loss of the game.

The only reason a player would get a time forfeit is if they do not place the move within a reasonable
amount of time.

Any other ideas, or suggestions?
