Question: How do you get a draw? It appears it's Bo1 for every pairing?

"A draw occurs when time is called and the match isn't over, except if one player used more than 22 minutes for his turns. In that case this player loses the game."

so i will send out a message like this to all the players still playing: "Time for round 3 is up. Please abort the match and report the result to me. If a player took more than 22 minutes for his turns, he lost. Otherwise it is a draw."

The 22 min thing is so that nobody can stall on purpose, or just take forever while the other player plays fast enough. So basically a draw just happens when a game takes too long, longer than 35 minutes.

I hope I explained it well enogh, feel free to ask whatever is not clear please :)

Sorry for not reading properly. Interesting format. I guess I'll not play LGO then because it would be totally possible that it takes me that much more time than my opponent to plan my move ^^

Hm, yeah the idea is that if you play with decent speed, you will always be fine, 22 minutes is almost 70% of the gametime, that means you can take up to twice as much time as your opponent to think. Also almost all the matches should be done a lot faster than 35 minutes. I just want to avoid the situation where 30 players wait for the two who tought it would be fun to play Order Stalling Structures with Faith Chains as win condition ;) I do think, and hope, that the time limit will play a very minor role.

I was not voicing criticism, I totally get why you want a time limit and think it will be necessary since it seems like it will become a big event with very many players.
