Our group brings together two of the best sources for interactive slow time control chess on the ICC, the STC Bunch and T4545. See the quotes below from thier websites:
For more than a decade, the Slow Time Control (STC) Bunch has existed to bring players who prefer these slower time controls together, alert them to slow tournaments they may be interested in, and run tournaments of its own. There is no membership charge. You can find us in channel 90 on ICC, FICS and WCL.
Team 45 45 League provides internet chess players who like slow time controls with team competition, on the premier place to play chess on the net, the Internet Chess Club.
The STC has had teams in the Team 4545 League tournaments since T33. In that time, we have had some success; we have sent teams into the playoffs in most of seasons so far! And the STC teams are always looking for more players.
In order to play on one of our teams, you must:
- be a member of the Internet Chess Club
- be a member of the Slow Time Control Bunch; and
- meet the requirements of Team 4545 League.
If you are interested in joining one of our teams, contact (via ICC message) one of our captains - See links below for additional information.
