Robert Mueller    (2010-04-11)
Match Against Rybka Forum

Thibault, I see there is going to be a match Rybka Forum vs FICGS. They are recruiting eight players to play individual games against FICGS members. Who is going to play for FICGS? Do you still need a player? I would be interested in playing, but I will be on vacation from May 8 to May 15.


Thibault de Vassal    (2010-04-11 15:20:48)
Match Against Rybka Forum

Hi Robert, I'm not sure yet if there are so many members at Rybkaforum interested to play (actually it looks like the most are FICGS players until there), but if it can motivate them, let's try to build a team already :)

Vacation would not be a problem as a long time control should be the option but there is no rule well defined yet. However the rules will probably look like the ones used in FICGS vs. Igame.ru

The thread at Rybkaforum is there :

http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/topic_show.pl?tid=16132

Do not hesitate to post here and there if you're interested to play such a match!


Robert Mueller    (2010-04-11 16:21:54)
Match Against Rybka Forum

Actually, it seems they already have seven players:

If you build a team, please count me in.

Match Against Rybka Forum

I'd be interested in playing, and I also like the suggested rule of Rybka forum members only being assisted by Rybka, and us only being assisted by other engines.


Thibault de Vassal    (2010-04-11 20:59:51)
Match Against Rybka Forum

Oh ok, thanks Robert, I didn't see this discussion at Rybkaforum before...

The idea discussed with "Vytron" is : Half players would play their game here at FICGS, and the other half would play their game at the Rybka forum... Of course there would be a kind of time control there but this would be a friendly match before all!

So please post here if you're interested to play in the FICGS team and specify if you would be ok to play your game at the Rybkaforum.

I'm in, of course (if my new rating allow me to play :)), and I'm ok to play at the Rybkaforum.


Wayne Lowrance    (2010-04-11 22:47:43)
Match Against Rybka Forum

I am in if you need me. I think you will have many volunteers. I will play my games at either server, just as long as I am a FICGS member
Wayne


William Taylor    (2010-04-11 23:43:06)
Match Against Rybka Forum

I'm in if my rating's good enough, and am happy to play at Rybka forum if necessary. If you get too many people volunteering I'm happy not to play.

Thibault, I would like to play for the FICGS team. I would prefer to play here at FICGS.


Garvin Gray    (2010-04-12 05:57:57)
Match Against Rybka Forum

I would like to know about how boards are going to be decided? Will it in rating order for both teams.

If so, then I am interested. If teams are able to put their players in any order, then I will pass.


Thibault de Vassal    (2010-04-12 14:46:39)
Rating order + Unrated games

Garvin, a problem is that most Rybkaforum players may not have any rating yet, so it will be probably not significant. By the way, all games will be unrated, of course.


Mircea Hrubaru    (2010-04-12 20:58:37)
Match Against Rybka Forum

I'm interested. On behalf of FICGS, of course.


Michel van der Kemp    (2010-04-13 11:00:06)
Match Against Rybka Forum

I would be interested to play also.


Thibault de Vassal    (2010-04-13 13:07:23)
Accounts at Rybkaforum

Hi Garvin, finally pairings will be arbitrary, so are you interested to play? (if yes, would you like to play at Rybkaforum or at FICGS?)

Michel & Mircea, would you like to play at Rybkaforum as well?

Currently Wayne, William & me will play at Rybkaforum, we need only one more.


Mircea Hrubaru    (2010-04-13 14:08:25)
Match Against Rybka Forum

OK Thibault.


Michel van der Kemp    (2010-04-13 14:19:59)
Match Against Rybka Forum

Yes I can play on their forum also, though I prefer the FICGS interface here :)


Mircea Hrubaru    (2010-04-13 15:58:44)
Match Against Rybka Forum

I think I want to play at FICGS.


Garvin Gray    (2010-04-13 16:14:50)
Match Against Rybka Forum

If the pairings are going to be arbitarly, which I take it mean that players can be paired in any order, then I am OUT.


Thibault de Vassal    (2010-04-13 17:06:16)
Match Against Rybka Forum

Okay Garvin! So we still need one more player, anyone?


Garvin Gray    (2010-04-13 17:22:52)
Match Against Rybka Forum

I have a proposal though. We could ask the organisers from the Rybka team if they would be willing to play their team in 'rating order' or whatever they are going to use.

The reason I am against having players play in any order is that it will lead to more mis-matches and does not tell much about the players of either forum.


Robert Mueller    (2010-04-13 17:38:51)
Match Against Rybka Forum

Another subject that should be discussed is that of names (real or otherwise). It is my understanding that some members of the Rybka team will start an account at FICGS. I assume they will have to sign up using their real names? How will we know who is who on the Rybka forum? Or do we need to know that?


Thibault de Vassal    (2010-04-13 18:03:22)
Match Against Rybka Forum

True, Garvin. I just made the suggestion at Rybkaforum.

Robert, Rybkaforum members who will play at FICGS will enter a real name for sure, just like other members. We do not have to specify our real name at the Rybkaforum, just following their rules.


Thibault de Vassal    (2010-04-13 20:37:31)
@ Garvin

I'm not sure if the ratings will mean something... e.g. G.Clement at Rybkaforum is rated 2129, but probably uses Rybka. I don't know their other ratings yet so we may have a few provisional 1800 players among our opponents. Ratings ordered or not, all this looks like quite arbitrary.

Just tell me, Garvin... we have a player in replacement if needed.


Garvin Gray    (2010-04-14 05:35:49)
Match Against Rybka Forum

Ok stick me in anyways :) Which will make the eight players.


Thibault de Vassal    (2010-04-17 21:34:42)
Match Against Rybka Forum

About the rules :

Time control 20 days + 20 days / 10 moves at FICGS... for the games played at RybkaForum it is 24/48 hours per move in average & in relax mode, there will not be "losses on time"...

It seems to me that there is no other special rule, I just asked Vytron to confirm.


George Clement    (2010-04-21 19:58:54)
