Registration can be done directly on your own via the website but It’s better to let me know so that I can coordinate and loop all interested players together so we can make accommodation planning together.
Some simple breakdown on the cost based on my estimation
Flight: Cheapest is scoot, currently at $500
Accommodation: $40 per person ($80 per night)
Entry fee: $50
Total: Basically around $1000, if you are not intending to travel.
Regarding WRC Quota for Singapore, I’ve no idea how many we are getting. I’m still waiting for the WRC Organiser to get back to me. But because they are shrinking the number of participants, we probably have fewer quota than the last time.
Depending on how many Singaporean players participate in this Australia Riichi Mahjong Open, I may or may not change the date of our local tournament that is tentatively scheduled on 7,8 December, pending venue confirmation.
The next league will begin this coming Saturday, 29 June 2019. This time, we will be using the Aka-Ari ruleset. The summary is given below. This league consists of 10 sessions.

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

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.
This ruleset is the same as the previous league’s ruleset with the Aka Dora included.
That’s all for the Aka-ari league! Be sure to attend so that you do not miss out on all the fun!
Feel free to ask any questions regarding this league’s rules if you’re unsure.
Since we had a long break before the next league session so would just like to remind everyone to register for coming session if you’re free to join!
