Dear visitors, our website wfcc.ch is getting some important upgrades. The Maintenance mode is set for some steps of the process and you might experience it from time to time for about a week.
Most of the functionality seems to work now, some visual issues as font sizes and layouts in the design of the pages and posts will be slowly fixed. Please report to firstname.lastname@example.org if you find any broken functionality (something what worked before and doesn’t work now)!
Thank you very much for your patience! (J.V., the webmaster)
The new look of Ratings pages will replace the pages for period 1.07.2013-01.04.2021 given on the bottom of Competitions->Solving page.
By default the new page shows the latest period, with the search option for previous lists.
The link (URL) to any rating list looks like: https://www.wfcc.ch/competitions/solving/solvers-ratings/?per=[quarter], where [quarter] is YYQN, like 21Q1 = 2021 quarter 1; 20Q4 = 2020 quarter 4; etc.
Quick links to the recent rating lists: 01.10.2020 | 01.01.2021 | 01.04.2021
Links to the old ratings pages, 1.07.2013-01.04.2021, will work up to May 14th, 2021. If you had any references on your websites to them, please update! I apologize for possible inconvenience related to the change in URLs.
The technical part of the change was related to the further (and necessary) upgrade of the software platform (WordPress + PHP versions). Hope, you’ll like the new design! (JV, the webmaster)

“When we organised the Lockdown Tournament last May, it was never the intention to repeat this. At that moment nobody had any idea what the future would bring. We all hoped to return quickly to our normal live. Half a year later we know that it is not that simple.
Some time ago I made the selection for the traditional Henk Hagedoorn Memorial in the Netherlands, but when this tournament was cancelled, everything went fast. With most of the problems “ready to use” and a complete lack of live tournaments, the decision to repeat the Home Solving Tournament (a much better name than the ugly “Lockdown”) was quickly made.”
