The players in this tournament are spread across thousands of miles. To organize it where we play live is not logical. Therefore, we play on websites such as Yahoo! Games.

It is very possible to cheat on online websites. There are programs that can be used to gain advantages, etc. AI players, etc.

To to detour cheating, there is not gambling involved. This for people that enjoy playing the game of chess. It is a fun little tournament... don't think too much into it.




Ok, sounds like all are having fun.

I can't get my match with nightstalker in before 2/1. I'm also terrible at chess. I'll just concede the match.

Night Stalker and I are still trying to set up a match.

Ok fine. What is your point? I would like to know why that would have you boycott this WoV tournament?

The worst thing that could happen from a person using computer program to play, is that the person would beat you.

This tournament that has zero entry fee and zero prizes.

So worst case, you play an individual that cheated, and you lost a match... and if you did not enjoy the game, the time that you spent playing it. That is it
