NOVA 2014 Teams
 
I have given each team a tentative temporary name.
Teams may choose new names by getting together by
message or by posting here. Teams will have until
February 14 to make name changes.
 
Games should be started at once. Two games will
be contested in each pairing. White will challenge
Black in all games. If you have not used Challenge
before, go to Correspondence, then to Challenge,
then to Advanced. When you challenge be sure to
select White as your color.
 
When all 6 of your games are underway, with at
least two moves having been made in each game,
please post to that effect here!

48 of 48 games completed
 
This chart displays the eight games between each Team.
Numbers are the Board Numbers and Wins, Loses, and Draws
are indicated by W, L, and D. For instance, if a Team wins
both games on Board 1, splits two on Board 2, draws both
on Board 3, and loses both on Board 4, the line will appear
as WWLWDDLL and the Match will be drawn at 4-4.
 
NOVA 2014 will be decided by Team Points. Team Points will be decided
by Match Points, and Match Points will be decided by Game Points. Match
Points will be the first tie-break and Game Points will be the second
tie-break. A Game Point is achieved by winning a game. A Match Point
is achieved by scoirng at least 1½ points in a two-game matchup. A
Team Point is achieved by winning at least 2½ Match Points in each
8-game Team pairing as 4 Match Points are available. When one game
has been won in a Pairing, the MP will give the winning Player ½ Match
Point. If and when the other game is won or drawn by that Player the
table will be upped to a full point.
 
Neither Azathoth nor DualSpace has appeared to play their scheduled
NOVA 2014 games, so, in order to be fair to all Teams, I am going
to score all their games is forfeit draws. This will have the effect
of negating their particiption in NOVA 2014 at all, and retain a
level playing field for all Teams. The Sir Wiz Blues have scored the
fitst Team Point by winning their Match with the Potato Zugs 2½-1½ The
Potato Zugz have assured themselves of at leat ½ Team Point as
they have scored 2 Match Points in their match with the Addy Stacks
and have thus scored at least a draw in that Match. And,
later development. The Addy Stacks have scored at least ½ Team Point
in their match with the Bueno Pondeerers.

This was a Time Forfeit, but there was a forced one-move-mate by
Black on the board.
