2017 World Team Tournament Announcement

 

The North American Stratego Federation (“NASF”) is proud to host the 2017 World Team Tournament.

 

The tournament will begin on Monday, June 12. Registration will be open through June 10 at 23:59 GMT.

 

To register, country and federation coordinators can reply to this thread identifying your country/federation and your team members.

 

Team Formation

 

All of teams must have exactly five players.

 

Any player can express interest in playing, however, teams must be one of the following three types:

 

Type 1. Five players from the same country or federation

Type 2. Three players from one country and two players from another country.

Type 3. Five players from five different countries (only one such team is allowed)

 

No country or federation can have players on more than one team.

 

Players interested in competing on behalf of the Type 3 “World Team” (see below) may reply to this thread expressing their interest in playing on behalf of the World Team, and identifying their country of citizenship. Eligibility and method of qualification for the World Team will be determined by the NASF based on the number of interested players. 

 

Any group of five players that meet the criteria for one of the three types of teams and agree to play together may form a team. However, if players cannot come to a consensus on their own we will assist them in trying to put together teams so that those who want to participate can do so.

 

Team Captains:

 

Each team must select a team captain. The team captain for each team will be chosen by each team by consensus. If there is disagreement, the captain will be the player with the highest ELO (in the case of a type 1 or type 3 team) or the player with the highest ELO from the country with the larger number of players on the team (for a type 2 team).

 

Format and Matches:

 

Each team will play each other team in a round robin.

 

Matches will consist of 5 games between two teams. Prior to each match, each Team Captain will submit by PM to a neutral party a list of members with letter designations for each player (A, B, C, D, and E). In each match, player A from one team will compete against player A from the other, player B will play against player B, and so on. These lists will be made public after every team captain has submitted their list.

 

The winner of each game will receive one (1) point for their team.

The loser of each game, will receive zero (0) points for their team.

If a game ends in a tie, each player will receive one half (0.5) point for their team.

 

The two teams with the most points at the conclusion of the round robin will advance to the championship round.

 

Tiebreak procedures:

 

If two teams are tied in points at the conclusion of the round robin, the tie will be settled by a one game playoff. The team captain will designate the player from each player to complete in the playoff.

 

Championship Round:

 

The championship round will last two weeks. The team will less points during round robin play will choose all the matchups in the first week, and the team with more points during round robin play will decide the matchups in the second week, with the requirement that there be no matches between the same players who competed in the first week.

 

When one team reaches 5.5 points or more, they are the winners.  If the championship match ends 5 to 5, then the team with more points from the round-robin phase is the winner.  If this was a tie then each team chooses a player to compete in a final tie-breaking match.  If it is a draw then a second player is chosen to play another match.

 

Questions:

 

A separate thread will be created for questions.

The NASF has our team:

 

Wogomite, constrictor, despy, josephwhite, and texaspete09

 

 

We've been informed that the Greek Federation will not be putting forth a list of players to be on their team, so any Greek player who wants to play may sign up in this topic and we'll help facilitate putting your team together.

 

We await the response of the Dutch Federation to find out who will be playing for their side.

 

Anyone from any other country who wants to play should sign up here so we can form teams accordingly.  You may be part of a two-country team, or the World Team if you are the only player from your country.

Where are the sign-ups for this tournament?   I thought after last year's successful World Team Tournament that the Federations would be looking toward this with anticipation.  Don't the Greeks want to defend their title?  Don't the Dutch want to reassert their dominance?  Where are the great individual players who could make up a formidable world team?

This is great! I'll add you to the reserves list. We've got a lot of players though. As it is, I do hope we'll have our Dutch "motorblok" to play again. This is pretty much the list Wogomite mentioned yesterday.

 

But the second proposal of TheOptician seems great too, and that was to have a Juniorsteam play. Our prodigies. Is that plan eligible, Wogomite? Seems the perfect team for MM as teamcaptain :)!

 

Anyway, I'll add you to the emailstring next.

The Committee has been discussing the idea of having a playoffs for a country that wants to submit two separate teams. Of course we cannot allow two teams from the same country to join for obvious reasons but it would be exciting to see team dutch motorblok and team dutch prodigy play in a pre-season playoff. Let the fights begin!!

@Don_Homer, Hey Ruben, Good to see you here as gravon seems to have died off a lot recently.

I am thinking about joining, but looks like it is going to be hard to get into any team, being from Aus.

May one enlist others too? Then I list the following teams, inspired by

 

Today two epic battles were fought. Germany was represented by Grizzlybear, England by Unladen Swallow

 

Subscription for the English team:

Unladen Swallow

tobermoryx

TheOptician

iron maiden

Silver Fox

Teamleader: ace72

Res.: DEATHHAMMER

 

And the German team (or anyone speaking German):

Grizzlybear

Spaher

MrSmith

Napoleon 1er

Barbe Noir

Teamleader: astros

Res.: SHOOGHIE

 

* SHOOGHIE is Dutch but living in Austria so he may be just as eligible to play this German language team as Africa's Joseph is for NASF. Otherwise take panther65 or have your pick, there are A LOT of good German players!

Again, when you show interest, could you please say what country you are from. If you have shown interest and not mentioned what country you are from, could you please do so. Even if you think your nationality is common knowledge, don't assume so. At the end of sign ups, the committee will not be able to place you on an appropriate team if we are unaware of your residents. Your flying flag is not always accurate.
