Bullet & lightning time controls

The bullet & lightning games are slowly but surely gaining in popularity, the next freestyle tournaments should help to continue this way...

Now that the touch-move option appeared at FICGS (see Preferences), maybe the bullet & lightning time controls should be faster to make it more different from each other and from blitz.

So far bullet is : 10 min. + 20 sec. / move , lightning : 30 min. + 1 min. / move

Maybe we could envisage this change :

Bullet : 5 min. + 15 seconds / move , lightning : 20 min. + 30 seconds / move

Any opinion?

I like the changes you suggest.

Bullet & lightning time controls

Three possible options IMO :

1) Bullet : 5 min. + 15 seconds / move , lightning : 10 min. + 30 sec. / move
2) Bullet : 5 min. + 15 seconds / move , lightning : 20 min. + 30 sec. / move
3) Bullet : 5 min. + 15 seconds / move , lightning : 30 min. + 30 sec. / move

Maybe I hesitate between 1 & 3 finally...

Thib, how about 15+30 for Lightning.

If you see 5+15 and 20+30, there appears to be a huge gap. However, i feel I can agree with any of them :)

Just a suggestion :-O

Thibault, I like all 3 of the 5 min versions you have brought up. No problem with me

On second thought, I am thinking a 30 second increment for lightening is to long. Maybe shorten it.
Jut a thought

Finally and unless someone can convince me for another option, I think I'll make the changes to option 2 tomorrow :

Bullet : 5 min. + 15 seconds / move , lightning : 20 min. + 30 sec. / move

I think that's the good distance for lightning between bullet & blitz time controls.

Sorry I missed your message Wayne. Well, 30 seconds looks even a bit short to me compared to the blitz time control. Hard to find the perfect scheme.

Okey Dokie Thibault. I am fine with it

New bullet time control

Any feedback on the new bullet time control? (5 min. + 15 sec/move)

Do you think it should be even faster or is it ok? ;)
