I would like to know if it's possible to have a TeamLeague (same rules, same conditions of game...) with a time control of 15 0 or 20 0 ?
Best regards to all who manage the TeamLeague

Thank you for your input; Other time controls have been considered in the past.
The staff consensus is that will be sticking with 45 45, as players who seek games at different controls can find them, though not in a TL format. A duplicate at another time control would necessitate doubling staff, including our dear programmers, and given the fact that we operate as volunteers (as do all FICS staff) is another reason for sticking with the status quo.

Fischer-Random TL ftw!

Maybe Fischer Random can be included as a sort of "exhibition"? Rather than a full blown TL. Since we've been wondering about how packed our schedule should be, if we go back to having 3 TL seasons per year, we would have longer breaks and conceivably we can fit in a "special" FR tournament in there.
