We will be starting League 1 of 2020 early this time round due to Nee Soon South CC’s closure in mid-2020. The rules will be similar to the aka-ari rules we have been playing so far, except with custom uma.

- There will be no Nagashi Mangan.
- There will be no mid-game draws.

For every 100 points above 25000 at the end of the game, 0.1 LP will be awarded.
Likewise, for every 100 points below 25000 at the end of the game, 0.1 LP will be deducted.

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!
This ruleset is the same ruleset used in WRC 2017, with the exception of aka dora and the custom uma.
That’s all for the final league of the year! Be sure to attend to have a shot at the League Champion title!
Feel free to ask any questions regarding this league’s rules if you’re unsure.
