That’ll make it very poor for spectators...
I know there are some very eagerly looking forward to following on this site and replicating the boards for others to follow.
At the later stages why does anonymity matter?

Because it changes the way the game is played.

How does it in a tournament?
In F2F you know exactly who else is there...

The argument against anonymity typically amounts to some version of either “this is silly,” or “the best players don’t deserve additional protection.”

The argument for typically comes to “without anonymity the best (or perceived best) players will be unfairly targeted.”

In a tournament context, you can make it best/top point scoring.

Thanks!

Some interesting-looking springs already.

Also, if Durga is still watching this thread...did something happen to the Discord for the tournament? I can't get on it.
