World Solving Cup 2017/2018 – New Rules

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
