A most popular on-line team competition Euroleague is coming in its renju version to start in just 10 days. The team registration ends by 15th December.
Renju Euroleague is a team competition open to players and teams from all over the world (so not only the Europe, as the traditional name would suggest). You can join with a team from 4 to 7 members. The tournament system includes 7 rounds Swiss. It is a long-term competition – every round lasts 3 weeks during which the two paired teams arrange their match date – so you don’t need to be afraid of a time trouble too much:) In each match, 4vs4 is played, with 4 rounds where 2 players meet each other and play 2 games. The time limit is 10m + 3s, Soosorv-8 rule.
There have been a great initial season last year already, 12 teams from 9 countries participated, with such renown players as Ants Soosyrv, Aivo Oll, Martin Hobemagi, Dmitry Epifanov, Stefan Karlsson or Mikhail Kozhin. The results were narrow accordingly, but at the end a surprising winner emerged in a Polish squad Dark Wizards, featuring Michał Żukowski, Piotr Małowiejski, Piotr Bieniek, Paweł Nowak, Michał Zajk and Łukasz Majksner. Let’s see if they can repeat the shock one more time!
