But what now? The 2019 RKWC was a late summer edition that started in July. Given that the lichess variant world championships are all being held on a yearly basis, it seems natural for the start of the 2020 RKWC edition to be scheduled for late June / early July. For the 2020 edition, we could try to get further promotion through a lichess blog post instead of having to spread word about the world cup by ourselves. Stricter rules and stricter match deadlines will be necessary to keep the tournament managable, as this years world cup saw quite some illegal match delays - the worst of which taking 2 whole extra weeks. Depending on whether @RoyalManiac will defend his title, changing the format of the world cup might also be a point of discussion. As both me and @RoyalManiac are becoming increasingly less active in Racing Kings, it is yet unclear who will take care of organising the next world cup. Hopefully these issues will be discussed and solved by early summer 2020. Thanks again to all the participants, helpers, spectators and fans, we hope to see you again next year!
