When was the last tournament? Not chess. Debating tournament. Did we have a September or August beginners tourney? I love reading tournament debates.
I will change my sig weekly. Week 4.

Fun fact of the week
Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

It's still going on. The tournament system has changed -- each tournament lasts 3 months, not 1 month. So it's not monthly tournaments, it's seasonal tournaments. It is the Autumn Tournament. I'm co-moderating it.

Because the old system was a demonstrable flop. Tournaments that move to quick result in burnout and tournament fatigue.

Only regular tournaments are every 3 months, because the goal is to give noobs maximum opportunities to practice.

I saw no major problems with it.

Only thing is, if noobs practice for 3 months they won't be noobs.
Also, why is there still a September tournament then?

Right. So Debatability and I both agreed during the campaign that tournaments had a variety of issues, and this was a solution we both arrived at. Among the problems of the old system were that people would commit to doing too many tournaments at once, causing them to drop out of some or do poorly in all. This is tournament "burnout." Additionally, because tournaments were started so often, people would occasionally just get tired of them and not sign up at all ("tournament fatigue"). So the old system was one in which those who did sign-up didn't give it there all, and that those who may have otherwise wanted to join were just too drained or bored to do it. So, the longer schedule fixes these problems.

Only regular tournaments are every 3 months, because the goal is to give noobs maximum opportunities to practice.

Only thing is, if noobs practice for 3 months they won't be noobs.

Sure, but many noobs find the mentorship system present in the tournaments to be more educational and supportive. It also assures them a certain quality of competition.

Also, why is there still a September tournament then?

I just said: "only regular tournaments are three months..." So, there is a September tournament because noob tourneys still start every month.
