Link to full championship rules:
Referring to the registration form (will close on 2021-10-14T15:00:00Z):
This tournament is open to any participants from all over the world. But it has its own specifics.
Russia MLC consists of three stages.
1st and 2nd stages - qualification, which is held on the website MemoryMan.ru
The third stage is finals the Russia MLC, the structure of which is similar to other MLCs.
Here you can read the full rules of the championship:
And below I will describe the main points of the rules.
Participation fee: free
Online tournament consists of three parts, each of which takes a week. Part 1 and Part 2 are qualifications on MemoryMan.ru. And Part 3, the final one is on ML.
We hold an online tournament every six months. This tournament will be the 4th in order. But this is the first championship that received the status “Russia MLC”
Applications for participation: The tournament is open, so everyone can participate. But initially the tournament was planned as a Russian one, so the language settings are limited:
As there were many applications from Poland, we added the Polish language to MemoryMan in the disciplines “words” and “spoken numbers”. We recently added English.
According to the results of the Part 1, the participants are divided into three categories: pros (elite division), amateurs (2nd division) and beginners (3rd division). We do this manually, basing on the results in the tournament and the known potential of the participants (in order to exclude the strong participants from falling into the weak divisions). All participants who have made their attempts go to the second stage.
Part 2 is the main qualification. The best performing competitors in each division go to Part 3.
In the Part 3, we plan to bring 8, 6 or 4 participants in each category depending on the number of participants in the Part 2 (assessed in each category separately).
There are elimination duels like in the Olympic system. If it is OK to bring 6 participants we want to make 2 small groups of 3 participants each, the winners of which compete in the final games, and the second places compete for the 3rd place.
SPONSORSHIP AND PRIZES
The tournament is completely non-commercial, and when there occur sponsorship funds, we direct them to the prizes in full. We do not know if there will be sponsors this time, but we are definitely planning to have some prizes.
All participants of the part 2 get e-certificates of participation indicating the category in which they competed.
We make prizes like this:
(Distribution into 1/2/3 places)
Elite Division - 12/6/4 Months subscription to Memory League
Amateurs -3/2/2 Months
Beginners - 2/1/1 Months
These are the minimum prizes we want to make even if there are no sponsors.
We broadcast previous tournaments live on social networks, the main of which was Ассоциация мнемоспорта России | VK. (This is the most widespread social network in Russia) And also on Facebook (Redirecting...) and Instagram (Login • Instagram), we are ready to simultaneously announce everything related to the tournament at AOM.
We post all information in open sources on our pages in social networks. We also regularly have live broadcasts with reviews of the results during the tournament. The main platform for live broadcasts is also Ассоциация мнемоспорта России | VK, the main broadcast language is Russian, as is the audience. Anyway, we can help with the translation during the communication between Russian and English speaking participants.
In the Part 2, a mandatory requirement is to play with the camera live (as in SLAMs on ML).
