On behalf of the MIL Tournaments Commission, I announce here officially that the 2nd World Mahjong Mind Games (WMMG) finally comes to Chinese Taipei, from 17 to 25 November, 2018.
Though I released the initial news orally during the closing ceremony of 2018 Danish MCR Open in May, the working group appointed by MIL was unfortunately not able to obtain the final signed agreements with the local partners and sponsors in Suzhou by 25 May.
The China Majiang Federation has in the same time made the basic agreement with the Haikou partner to provide free hotels and foods during the initial WMMG dates by 5 June.
But due to the potential policy risk about the online cards & tiles games by the new Ministry of Culture and Tourism, our partners and potential sponsors both in Suzhou and Haikou finally decided to wait for the clear situation of coming policies, which means there will be no enough cash sponsorship from the online games companies.
MIL has so to delay the 2018 WMMG supposed in August and apologize for the inconvenience. All the players who has bought the air-tickets for August, are asked via your coordinators.
MIL will cover the losses for changing or cancelling fee of the air-tickets.
From 25 May, MIL started-up the emergent actions to reload the host application.
The Chinese Taipei Mahjong Association showed their interests to host the 2nd World Mahjong Mind Games as the substitute, and will cover all the sponsorship MIL required.
The Chinese Taipei Mahjong Association will also organize a selection trial of MCR individual event on 7&8 July, in Taipei.
After the negotiating and investigation for Chinese Taipei, the MIL Tournament Commission finally approved the host application on 15 June. Now I would like to announce the basic information of this big event as Mahjong Olympic here.
