Re: ECF Finance meeting 2018

UPDATE...Use BCF ratings in place of FIDE ratings. The general idea is to incentivize playing and winning.

Re: ECF Finance meeting 2018

UPDATE TIME! Forget my previous post. After your first year in BCF your subsequent yearly cost would be reduced by a percentage equal to FIDE rating/100 rounded up or down to a whole number. Cost reduction could also include games played or be based on games played alone.

New Piece Value Formula

1 point for each reachable square + 1 point for each supporting piece - 1 point for each defending piece. Thoughts?
