The International Chess Federation (FIDE), within the framework of its “Chess Composition” special project, is organising the 6th FIDE World Cup in Composing for 2018 in eight sections.
At the WCCC in Dresden new rules have been decided effective as from the 2017/2018 cycle of the WSC. Main focus of the changes was the aim to better attract travelling to solving tournaments in other countries.
The main changes are:
- New distribution of points for categories 1-7 which reduces the excessively increasing differences of points for winners of stronger tournaments
- Increase of the number of best tournaments that count for each solver from currently four to six tournaments
- Declaration of the Open Solving tournament during the ECSC as WSC tournament
