Thanks, I'll join, although it will be quite early in the morning for me. Also to clarify, I don't have dual citizenship, just USA citizenship, although I have permanent residency in South Africa (like the Green Card). My kids have dual citizenship though.

I thought Scott stated for a tournament somewhere that he was was GMT+7, yes. That will make it a bit hard to match with American time zones, which are from GMT-5 to GMT-8.

It will be Scott's responsibility to do so if he plays.

Events for the NASF will be scheduled on times that are convenient for North American's.  Outside of Alaska and Hawaii and extreme eastern Canada, most of the time zones fall between that of the Eastern, Central, Mountain and Pacific time zones.  We will focus mostly on those four zones to try to schedule events.

Im glad you guys are working on this and I just want to thank Midnightguy, chewtoy and Astros for putting the effort in to make this possible.  Its a tough challenge to get our entire continent to be able to play together because of how large it is.  But I think if we all work together and be understanding that I think we will be able to have lots of success!

Thanks Gaius Marius and to all of you who have signed up so far.  This event is still very much a WIP (Work in Progress) and with the holiday's coming up, we will all be busy.  After that time, we will have more time to focus on the NASF itself and we'll have even time to host some more events during the dark days of winter.  

 

The success of the NASF will come down to gathering as many players we can and build a strong community of Stratego players.  I am pleased to see the people we have thus far who are willing to take on the journey with the NASF and hopefully we can build on this success.  

 

Who will be our first winner of the first ever NASF event?  Stay tuned on Friday December the 4th!

It was brought to our attention by one of participates that we needed to add the rule about video recording of a match,  I have updated the rules on this issue under section 6e.  Unless if both players agree to have their match recorded and wish to have their video published to youtube, there will be no video recording of a match allowed. Recording of a match is still permitted but may be only shown that their opponent has violated a rule of this event or Stratego.com and will only be shared to members of the tournament judges: Midnightguy, Astros, and Chewtoy.

I have US citizenship and live overseas - GMT +7.

 

It just so happens that I will be in the US on business (assuming I get through immigration) starting December 3rd through the 10th making December 4th evening tournament a very good way to spend an evening away from the family.

 

Regards,

Scott

The American Flag you have as your icon and duel citizenship has you in same situation as Joseph White.  We will welcome you to join our event and the NASF Scott.  Are you playing this game on the old application or the new one?

I play online so I don't have any application.  Nothing has changed for me in terms of the pieces or setup so I assume I'm on the old version of the site.

Will the consolation bracket begin at 9pm EST? And is the only way into this consolation bracket through a first round loss? If someone wins a first round game but loses a second, he's done, right? There's no consolation bracket for him, right?

If that is the case, if I understand correctly, these games are going to run a bit late. For the finalists in either the winners or the consolation bracket there will be a championship game starting at approximately 11 pm EST, is that right?

Correct, the consolation bracket will begin at 9 PM EST. If we do not reach 16 players we may have to rework who is eligible for the consolation tournament to include some 2nd round players.

 

The tournament will run for awhile with the championship game schedule at 11 PM EST though it may very well start sooner.

Please respect the video rule. 

I personally do not want videos of my games recorded/published. Thanks for the offer ahead of time.
