League matches features
Our indigenously developed championship system, which is a“relaygame”, is comprised of the elements of generalization and entertainment. It features the following:The championship is comprised of three stages, namely the opening (1 to 60 moves), the middle game (61 to 141 moves), and the endgame (142 moves to the end). For each stage, each team is required to alternate its players (i.e. institutional replacement). The winning team will be determined by one game.
1. Team work
1. Team work
When the players are challenging each other, their coach and other teammates are permitted to study the game simultaneously. Subject to the game, each team is entitled to three times of technical suspension and three times of technical replacement. The coach is permitted to provide guidance, or request suspension or replacement, which spices up the gaming process with another “mind game”. The game will be more intriguing and dramatic.
The relay game transforms the traditional gaming of Weiqi between two players into two teams with about 10 players in total. Such transformation accentuates collective wisdom and enhances the spirit of teamwork.
2. On-site performance
Players are engaged in an open championship before a public audience. Groups of friends and family members, as well as groups of observers, are permitted on site to cheer up, encourage, or moderately distract the players, which will spice up the ambience of the championship.
3. Supporting activitiesFamous Weiqi experts will be invited to the championship for explaining the strategies. Entertainment programs related to Weiqi will be performed, along with Weiqi cheerleaders to heat up the ambience. In addition, Weiqi knowledge contests will be included to encourage more participation, makingthis gaming event more interesting.
These innovative measures transform the traditional Weiqi championship from a quiet, closed, and dull game between two individual players into a dynamic, open, and interesting game of collective participation. This makes Weiqi more appreciative and interesting, yet intriguingly competitive.
