After the reorganization of the armor, a big step forward
As one of the advocates of the reform of the armor system, Hua Xueming believes that the reformed armor has taken a big step forward.Figure / Former Osports champion Beijing team relegated, “Dark Horse” Hangzhou second team reached the finals, the fate of the first 8 and the last 8 of the regular season changed, this season, “Huawei Mobile Cup” China Weiqi League A suspense, constant variables.As the first season after the reform of the competition system, the fierce competition in the siege this year far exceeded external expectations.Although there are still flaws in the new format, in the words of Hua Xueming, vice-chairman of the Chinese Go Association, “We hope that Go will be paid more attention. From this perspective, this year’s reform has taken a big step forward.”Beijing CITIC’s relegation has attracted attention. The League One has entered its 21st year this year. The system has ushered in the biggest change in history. The forward double-loop system changes the regular season + playoff mode to increase the confrontation and fierceness of the league.  In the first year of the competition system reform, Weijia ushered in a new weather.In the final round of the regular season, the results from the second to the tenth in the league were revealed one by one.Hua Xueming, vice-chairman of the Chinese Go Association, said that after 20 years of Weijia League, such a stimulating scene is the first time that it will benefit Weijia and the development of Chinese Go.  In the previous double-loop competition system, there was no suspense in the final rounds. The team in the midstream was even more desperate and the league’s attention continued to decline, which led to the reform of the competition system by the Chinese Go Association.  Can be polished from the regular season, this year’s sorrow is far more severe than expected.Before the final round of the regular season, only the first place (Supor Hangzhou) and the last place (Tianjin Sijian) were determined, and the rankings of the other 14 teams were all variable.At the same time, due to fewer league rounds, the difference between the teams has also become smaller.The regular season is settled. The second to eighth places are only 3 points apart. The teams from seventh to ninth place have the same score of 25 points. The Chongqing team ranks ninth due to the disadvantage of innings and enters the relegation zone.According to the new format of the siege, the top 8 teams in the regular season entered the championship group, and the last 8 teams fell into the relegation group.Under the new competition system, the lower ranked teams have a chance to turn over, and also give pressure to all the leaders in the middle reaches.The Lhasa Pure Land team and the Tianjin Sijian Team, who ranked second in the regular season, grasped the new format and finally retreated against the relegation.  After the playoffs, the two Hangzhou teams will meet in the finals. Last year, Jiangsu and Xiamen teams can only compete for the third place.In 2017, the league champion, the veteran powerhouse Beijing CITIC team was relegated.”No one expected the relegation of the veteran powerhouse CITIC team, which was a bit overwhelming.”Hua Xueming said.  Cao Dayuan, the honorary head coach of the Lhasa Pure Land team, bluntly stated that they are the beneficiaries of the new format.Since the end of the regular season in August, the newly promoted Maratha team has been preparing for the preliminary key relegation battle. The team assembled a week in advance to adapt to the high altitude of Lhasa.  Happy Hangzhou One and Two team finals summary When this season’s siege, Hua Xueming used “surprise and joy” to summarize. The surprise is the 2017 league champion Beijing team’s unexpected relegation. The joy is the Long Yuan Mingcheng HangzhouThe team’s dark horse rises.  In this season’s siege league, Hangzhou has two teams participating, one team is Supor Hangzhou and the other team is Long Yuanmingcheng Hangzhou.The first team gathered Shen Zhenshen, Lian Xiao, Li Qincheng and Xie Ke and other famous generals. The second team headed for Ding Hao, Wu Guangya, Xia Chenkun, Zhang Ziliang and other rising stars, full of energy.  According to the goals at the beginning of the season, the Hangzhou First Team strives for the league title, while the Hangzhou Second Team strives to relegate.Unexpectedly, the two teams finally met the finals smoothly.Longyuan Mingcheng Hangzhou team ran like a dark horse, ranking third in the regular season, and eliminated the Xiamen team led by Ke Jie in the playoff semifinals.  The famous Longyuan Mingcheng’s different troops came into effect. Hang Tianpeng, executive vice president of Hangzhou Branch of China Chess and Cards Hospital, said that it has nothing to do with the new game system of Weijia.Multiple breakthrough opportunities.Young teams are often more explosive, but the stability will be worse.If the old system is followed, the performance of the Longyuan Mingcheng team may not be so good.Talking about league reform at the beginning of the season, Hua Xueming said that one of the main goals is to make the game break the suspense and make it more exciting.”From the first season after the restructuring, this goal has basically been achieved.  ”Regardless of what happened before, as long as the playoffs are lost, there will be no more. Every round is fighting for the bayonet.”Su Tao Hangzhou coach Wang Tao said that from the perspective of chess fans, this year’s league stare.  As the most influential league in the Weiqi world, the Chinese Weijia League includes almost all the current masters.From the perspective of training chess players, the league gives many young players the opportunity to show themselves.Hua Xueming also said that the top 60 players in the ranking have a chance to beat the world champion. “They have this strength and anything can happen.”In the first round of the finals, China’s 26th-ranked Zhao Chenyu defeated Ke Jie, the first-ranked player.In the Air Force semi-final, Ding Hao, a post-00 teenager, also eliminated Ke Jie in the sixth stage to help the troops reach the finals with a dark horse.  Confused whether the game round should increase or decrease?  The changing trend brought about by the new armor system has made the league more intense and brutal.But at the same time, the new format also triggered some discussion.Hua Xueming admitted that any reform has advantages and disadvantages, depending on how to weigh.  According to the game system of Weijia last season, even if there are only 14 teams, the total number of rounds still reaches 26 rounds.The number of teams increased to 16 in the new season, but the number of rounds has dropped significantly. The minimum team has only 17 rounds and the maximum is only 21 rounds.  Go attacks continue, and the league is considered an important platform for players to maintain their status.At the same time, more games can also bring more income to the players.  ”We still hope that there will be more league rounds. Only 17 rounds this year and 26 rounds last year. In fact, there are still many ways to arrange 16 teams this year.Cao Dayuan said that more participation in the competition will benefit both the sponsor and the player ‘s income.  In addition, the regular season of the siege ended in August, but the top two teams and the last two teams did not usher in the first playoff game until early November, which has some impact on the status of the players.  Talking about this topic, Hua Xueming said that the Go game is too dense, and reducing the number of rounds is a major reason for this league reform.”We have to allow time for other games.As for the status of chess players, Hua Xueming said that the impact is not big. Even in the empty season of the league, there are still many other games to be played by first-class players.Hua Xueming also introduced that next year is the year of Go, with a total of 7 world competitions, and the overall season of the league will be more elaborate.  Lin Jianchao, chairman of the Chinese Go Association, also said that the new system is inevitable for the development of the league. “Reducing some tedious rounds can make every game decisive, and can also relieve some intensive players.”In addition to the impact of the game rhythm and the income of the players, there is some room for improvement in the final system.This season’s finals system is San Fan, and then there has been a situation where the league champion has been produced this year, but the third to sixth places have not yet been ranked, and the league’s attention has been affected to a certain extent.  The Huaxue Mingbao Association will negotiate with the teams on the game system. The preliminary opinion is that next year’s finals will change the home and away system (the first round does not have a leader), consistent with the playoff system.
