Fourth round in the WCO started yesterday with 3 games and 2 big surprises !!

 

  • Spyros77 stopped the unbeatable streak of Sohal and gain 6 valuable points.
  • The amazing player from South Africa , Josephwhite, managed to win a very experienced dutch player like dutchkillers and proved that in stratego all the results are possible . 
  • In the third game Alister777 won Youngshiva

Tomorrow at 18.00 gmt it is scheduled to take place one of the most interesting and important games of the WCO. 

 

The number one rated player online vs the current real live world champion , Hielco vs Nortrom

Winner will take a big advantage in the race for the title of the online world champion

Four games took place yesterday and these are the results:

 

  • njphillips12  after a very close game of 1,5 hours duration and more than 1000 moves managed to defeat GaryLShelton
  • John Collasky in also a very close and interesting game won kambia and made in our newspaper the following statement:''Very very close game ! I won an exciting game, Kambia played very good, i'm very happy to met her.''
  • Leppie won SHOOGIE and made his second victory in the WCO. Now he has plenty of time to prepare his army for the next battle against KARAISKAKIS in the battlefield of winter tourn for the third round in Premier Bracket
  • The fourth game yesterday was between Maxroelofs and Moghedien. Shortly you will have the chance to watch it in WCO video gallery.

Yes indeed but there is no chance!

Our newspaper tried to buy the rights for this game and actually we made a very generous offer but they asked too much (rumors say about 2.500.000 euros)

The big game between Hielco and Nortrom finished before a while without winner. After this result the game playa1 vs gkaros (Wednesday 21.00 GMT) will have as outcome only one player in the top of the standings (if there is winner). 

Our newspaper is asking from Hielco and Nortrom (if they wish) to make a public statement about their game.

In other games yesterday we have had the following results:

  • Morx in a close game with the help of an unpredictable setup,  managed to win sevenseas. His opponent took some risks at the end but he predicted incorrectly. 
  • BaseQ won chefwd76 and climbed higher in the standings.

 

Τoday at 21.00gmt playa1 and gkaros are going to have a battle with reward the first place in the standings after 4 rounds.

Our reporter made a research in old files and found that this is the first time these 2 great players meet each other for a tournament game , online or live . Actually the only game we found between them , was a ranked game in gravon before 2 years with winner the dutch player. This means that noone has previous experience of his opponent , fact which is promising for a very interesting game!

UPDATE IN RULES: 

 

Players are expected to give their availability within the first 3 days of a week ( so for week 1 of the round and week 2 of the round ). Failing to do so will add a 'negative mark' to your name.

Consequences of negative marks: We use this to track which players put ( lots of ) effort into having their match played and will use this information when judging in case a game remains unplayed.

Match PM is sent ( 1st week ), both players now have 72 hours to post their availability for this week. In case a game is not played within the 1st week, players are expected to post their availability in the same manner. From the moment on the match PM was started, adding 1 week and 72 hours.

In case a player communicates to the WCO team ( prior to the new round ) that (s)he will not be available during X period of time, no negative mark will be added.
