The World Riichi Competition (WRC) Committee has organised an online tournament on ron2 mahjong platform. Ron2 is frequent by many professional players in Japan. It is usually a premium account but with this sign up, you get 90days of membership!
Players from all over the world will be participating in this although you are likely to play with asians and europeans due to timezone difference. The top 4 will get a qualifying slot for WRC 2021 (postponed of 2020).
So if any of you win, more of us will be going to WRC 2021!
It will be held over the course of 2 + 2 days, 22nd and 23rd August, Finals on 29th + 30th August.
Registration fee is around S$35 (20 Euro).
For the other details, you can check out on their website at https://worldriichi.org/about-fest
If you wish to join, just register on your own and pay accordingly to the instruction stated there. I’ve no idea what is the registration deadline. I only know whatever that is written on the website.
Please also note that there is no re-selection of players for WRC 2021 unless the selected players for WRC 2020 drop out. This treatment is to be consistent for any future postponement of any tournament that require selection trial. Otherwise, I would have define the length of postponement that warrants a re-selection should any future tournament postpone again. Defining the length can be problematic due to many uncertainties that may arise in organising the selection.
