Slow Chess League - Official
The official lichess team for the Slow Chess League. We are now running live multi-day classical swiss tournaments at time controls of G/60+30 and G/90+30. You play just one game/round per day in these events. You play on one day each week or once each day during a week.
Rules of Play - We password protect our tournaments to prevent early registration to minimize pairings with no-show players. The password restriction is removed about 1 hour before play begins making registration open for all team members. If you can't play the first round, then don't join until you can play. Late joins are allowed until half of the rounds are played. If you can't play the upcoming round, then don't late join. If you have to go after joining / play begins, resign your game. Don't just leave making your opponent wait an hour or more for the game to be resolved. If you won't be back for the rest of the tournament, then withdraw. Players who abuse these rules may be removed from the team.
Addendum: Thanks to MrBlunderful, we now know that you can withdraw before a round if you can't play that one and then join again after to play future rounds without penalty. However, it appears that no 1/2 point bye is given in that situation. So if you can't play in a round, please withdraw before it starts so as not to be paired. Then rejoin when you can play another round.
