OLD/MANUAL WAY TO START YOUR GAME:
1. This is only when your pairing has "Start Manual". Why it has "Start Manual"? There are few reasons and it may happen. So in case Tournament Director mark your pairing as "Start Manual", you can come back to this intstruction and know what to do.
2. If you are playing WHITE and you have to "Start Manual", you have to challenge your opponeng (BLACK) a game.
3. If you are playing BLACK, you have to wait until a challenge coming on your Lichess account.
4. If you are playing WHITE, go to BLACK player profile. In the pairing, black's Lichess handle is a link, click that. Or you can type on your browser http://lichess.org/@/ followed by Lichess handle. Here an example: https://lichess.org/@/ChessStream1
5. You will see "Challenge Icon". It is to challenge the player a game. Challenge icon is on the middle one, not the top right corner.
6. Now you have to set the clock setting. It is like your regular game offline, you need to know to set your clock right. Here the setting for G25 plus 4 (Game 25 with 4 seconds increment).
7. Your challenge will be sent to BLACK. If you are playing BLACK, you have to wait until a challenge coming from your opponent! The challenge will come as popup, but sometimes you will need to check in the icon.
A. Make sure that the opponent requesting a game is the opponent in the pairing.
B. Make sure it is STANDARD.
C. Make sure it is Casual (not lichess rated)
D. Make sure time control is correct.
E. Make sure it is correct color. Playing wrong color may result wrong reading from Tournament Director.
Then accept the challenge. If it is not correct, you can accept the challenge, but then send message/chat to your opponent to cancel the game first and re-do the challenge. Do not forget saying Good Luck to start your game!
8. Do you need to report the result of game? NO! We will collect your the result by watching all the games automatically. You should only play 1 game with your opponent! and that is what we count. Make sure that the result is correct in the standing. We will collect result as soon as your game finished.
