The slides were amended to be more read-friendly, with added elaboration and some unnecessary slides were removed. The details of dangerous/safer suji to be used are added.
I’m expecting more mistakes to be found by readers so do let me know the mistakes, no matter how minor! I will edit and make an amended version. I’m already informed of a few.
Please also let me know if you personally felt any slides were confusing or unclear!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
We shall start the year with aka-ari league, with 1st place emphasis and ranking by total score! This year, we will place a bit more emphasis on total-score ranking instead of position. Only 1 aka-nashi league will use solely on position for league ranking. Other 3 leagues will be based on total score
(Claim a winning tile that gives a yaku to a yakuless hand)
(Last dealer get to choose to end han-chan upon topping the game)
|3 Aka Dora
(Discards of terminals/honours till exhaustive draw)
(Discard Foul Reach)
(Dealing into 2/3 players)
(Score of >48,000)
(Pao for Daisangen and Daisuushii ONLY)
7700 rounded up to 8000 and
11600 rounded up to 12000
(Winning on a discard in the very first un-interrupted set of turns, before the player has had his first turn)
(End of han-chan once a player has less than 0 points)
- There will be 3 Aka Dora (red dora) used for this ruleset.
- There will be no Kazoe Yakuman (counted yakuman). Any hand with 13 or more han is treated as a sanbaiman.
- There will be no Nagashi Mangan.
- There will be no mid-game draws.
- There will be no multiple ron. The player closer to the discarder will win the hand.
- There will be no multiple yakuman.
- All kan declared will open a new kan dora indicator immediately, regardless of the type of kan (kakan, daiminkan, ankan).
League Points (LP) system
The league point system for this league will be your net score/1000 + the following points based on your position:
A player finish in 1st place with 35k.
Net score = 35k-25k = 10k.
Total LP = 10k/1k + 45 = 55 LP.
Chombo Penalty: -30 LP , 4000 point payment to all other players, hand is redealt.
Missing sessions: No penalty
Attending the 9th and 10th session: +10 LP for the next league.
LP will be halved after the 8th session of the league.
The winner of the Main League will be awarded $40 vouchers which will be presented in the next tournament.
The main league consists of 10 sessions which will have two side leagues consisting of 5 sessions each. In each of the side league, the same LP system will be used, and the winner of each side league will be entitled to fee waivers for one session.
Bonuses from the previous league will not be added to the Side League. Also, LP from the Side League will not be halved after the 8th session.
However, penalties from chombo will still be deducted from the Side League.
Attendance Points (AP) system
The attendance points system for this league will be as such:
|1st||2nd||3rd||4th||Sit-out/ Spectator||Missing sessions|
All player’s attendance points will be reduced to 10% at the start of the WRC league. Newcomers, this is the best opportunity to get higher AP than the veterans to avoid sitting out for your first game!
Feel free to ask any questions regarding this league’s rules if you’re unsure.
