The 2nd SportAccord World Mind Games Online Tournament [ Playing Rule ] Details

Game interruption

When a player’s Internet connection is disconnected and the game is interrupted, the player who was disconnected must reconnect and restart the game within 5 minutes. Likewise, the opponent needs to wait for 5 minutes, for their opponent to return and restart the game. If the disconnected opponent does not reconnect and restart the game within 5 minutes, then the game is counted as a win for the other player, regardless of the game. If both players are disconnected, the game is stored for 15 days. The stored game will be a “No game” if it does not restart within 15 days.

If you lose your connection during a game three times or more, you automatically lose.(*please don’t think that it is o.k. to disconnect twice intentionally.)

If a disconnection occurs while scoring a game, the player who was disconnected must restart the game within 1 minute. If the player does not restart the game within one minute, the game is counted as “loss by resigning”.

To make this rule work properly, we will also introduce a new points system called “Ending points”.

Ending points

Pandanet introduced a new end of game system. “Ending points”are given to all Pandanet users. In principle, “Ending points” are subtracted when you lose your Internet connection during a game, and added when you finalize and lose a game properly.

When you lose your Internet connection once -1point
When you lose your Internet connection twice -2points
When you lose a game by losing your Internet connection three times -5points
When you lose a game by not restarting a game within five minutes *1 -10points
When you disconnect your Internet connection without waiting five minutes after your opponent lose their connection -5points

*1…Disconnecting points are also subtracted.
<< Example >> When you lose a game by not restarting a game within five minutes, and it is the second time disconnection. → -12 points.

The point ceiling is 30 points, and the point floor is-30.
Everyone starts at 30points.
You will lose a one-time adjourned (disconnected) game if your “Ending points” is zero or below.
*When you lose a game by a one-time disconnection when your “Ending points” is zero or below.
→-3points.

You can also obtain addition points.

Addition
When you lose a game by scoring properly -2points
When you lose a game by resigning -3points

*Ending points are not counted when a game has more than 2 moves.
*A game with a robot has nothing to do with “Ending points”.
*You can check your “Ending points” on “My Panda”.

We hope that everyone enjoy games without being interrupted. Please consult with us if you have Internet problems.
