An online mahjong play by no means can be viewed as a full-fledged substitute of the "live" play, no matter this is a tournament or a club game.
In 2021 the restrictions in travel and club meetings continue, so online play may be the way to keep players of your group trained until the time comes.
To facilitate running events MahjongSoft offers to your mahjong club / association / federation the idea of using of "authorized list of players" of your very group.
That list will help to create private tables where only the members of your group can enter.
The results can be easily retrieved from the sessions statistics by applying your group filter and be processed further in proper way.
If your group is fairly large enough you may run any type of the tournaments limiting participation to the members of your group only.
If your mahjong club / association / federation is interested in getting at the MahjongSoft your own "group" representation (with the use of "tickets" technology) and provided there are no less than 10 members in it please send an e-mail to Vitaly Novikov (email@example.com).
In your letter please cover the following topics:
As a result of cooperation with MahjongSoft your group will receive an extra opportunities to run online events.
We only will ask you to support our project by any amount you can afford.
The primarily goal of introducing "tickets" concept is in facilitating clubs / associations / federations to run "real" scheduled events such as group tournaments, marathons or weekly meetings.
Beyond the scheduled days, it is quite natural for the members of any "ticket" group to participate in activities of the whole mahjong community of the MahjongSoft not limiting themselves solely within the group.
Thus, to support the "real" activities and to avoid community fragmentation of any kind, the "natural" size of "ticket" group should be limited to the size of one big-size club or several small-size clubs.
We estimate the "limit" size to be equal to 60-80 players (it never can be, say, 200 players).
Only players with the status "Verified User" can be added to "ticket" groups.
Below is the list of all active "ticket" groups.
