Silver chess games, W/B balance

Just an idea... as the Epoints balance for White and Black may be not fair enough (as a reminder the current rule for e.g. bullet/lightning/blitz is: "1 game match (regular) - In case of a draw, the prize is divided, however player Black will fully get back his E-Points whereas player White will get the rest."), what would be a better system according to you?

On the basis of 19.8 Epoints at the end of the game, maybe we could try:

If result is 1-0, W+ 19.0 / B+ 0.8
If result is 1/2-1/2, W+ 9 / B+ 10.8
If result is 0-1, W+ 0 / B+ 19.8

or...

If result is 1-0, W+ 18.0 / B+ 1.8
If result is 1/2-1/2, W+ 8 / B+ 11.8
If result is 0-1, W+ 0 / B+ 19.8

Any idea?

I like the first system.

I second Scottie, the first one is the best choice. The other option appears to be favouring black too much..

You may be right Kamesh, but it could be just more exciting after all... I'm not sure if I would prefer Black or White there.

... I mean, with the first option I still prefer White.

Well, considering the amount of Silver Games that are being played, I think you can give the 2nd one a try. No harm. That gives Black a chance to play with damm precision! Go for it :)

I think the 2nd option would give Black some advantage in points after a few games since so many games are draws. It would definitely make White push hard for a win! Either way, I like it. :)

question.. if black is getting back .8 no matter what, would it be easy just to code that black's entry fee is .8 less? Perhaps this might be the better way to go that you have to pay less to enter a game as black.

the idea is good but unfortunately it is not so easy & it would change too many things... the result is the same anyway.

Ok, I've just made an update... now we're to test the formula:

If result is 1-0, W+ 18.0 / B+ 1.8
If result is 1/2-1/2, W+ 8 / B+ 11.8
If result is 0-1, W+ 0 / B+ 19.8

Have fun :)

Well I am looking for blitz silver games, so I guess I will be a guinea pig.

I do not think adjusting the prize breakdown will make the slightest difference to how many blitz silvers are played on here.

The issue is more about people's willingness to, rather than they are deciding not to because they are protesting the prize breakdown.

You're right, the main problem is obviously that we are too busy by games played at standard time controls but it is not a reason to try to improve the prize breakdown :)
