NOTE: THIS IS A >> QUESTIONS << THREAD, NOT A DISCUSSION ONE
 
Questions can be posted in this thread. Some Q & A:
 
Q: How can I contact one of the WC team members?
A: Skype addresses are:
Karaiskakis: 
Spoiler
Morx:
Spoiler
Nortrom: 
Spoiler
 
Q: I am playing against someone who does not accept a draw, what now?
A:
1. Suggest a draw using the chat function, sending a draw-request will take up one draw request which can be annoying if both players are out of draw-requests (please take a screenshot of this request, including the pieces on the board, graveyard and current time)
2. Give this player some time to get his pieces in the right position and such. 10 min without any progress ( pieces taken, or important change of position ) is considered a waste of time. Note that 10 min and 5 sec is acceptable, if change is happening. 
3. If 10 mins have passed without any change, you may contact a WC team member (if available) via Skype or Stratego.com chat ( or any other way you can contact ). And ask them to watch the game using Skype screenshare.
4. If 3 isn't possible, after 10mins have passed without any change, you can write to your opponent, that you are giving up this game (screenshot it!) and will contact the WC team about the game. NOTE: IF YOU DECIDE TO TAKE CHANCES, AND THEN CLAIM A DRAW BASED ON 10 MINUTE "RULE", YOU HAVE FORFEITED YOUR RIGHTS TO CLAIM A DRAW.
 
Another option, is to record the game, if no WCO member is available. This is prefered over screenshots!
 
Please note: "important change of position" is not 100% objective, but as baseline the following can be used:
- No different position(s) for piece(s);
- Piece(s) walking in the same area non-stop;
 
 
Q: How does swiss perfect work?
A: http://pmjn.nl/Onlin...tratego WC.docx ( requires a .docx reader )
 
Q: Why Swiss Perfect?
A: It is used in live tournaments and the software has proven to be capable of handling things such as:
- Byes;
- Withdraws;
- Puts players with similair results against eachother;
- Inbuilt tiebreaker system which can not be manipulated;
- Everyone can simulate the tournament in order to test whethere there was any fraud or not, if using the software the same way the WC team does, same entry of results etc, the simulation should have the exact same result as the real tournament;
- Offers a lot of information such as crosstables ( overview of who played who and the result ) and such.
 
Q: Is there an entry fee?
A: No
 
Q: Must all games be played on Stratego.com?
A: Yes
 
Q: Why 2 weeks per round?
A: 1 week is probably not enough to get every game going, keep in mind that Swiss Perfect requires each match to be completed ( or atleast have a result ) in order to advance to the next round
 
Q: I found an inconsistency in the rules, what to do?
A: Please contact the WC team by private message
 
Q: I feel my opponent isn't showing any effort to get a game played
A: Don't worry, the rules have this covered
 
Q: The rules seem very strict, why?
A: The rules should not be seen as a law, we like to offer as much as transparency as possible so players know based on what we will take decisions

Question: why does my game against Fighter68 not appear in your pairing list?


If you don't know where you go ... you have a lot of chance to arrive elsewhere ...

20 ELISSAIOS-GR : KARAISKAKIS   1:6 
22 Fks : GFighter

 

I think during the editing of results, the editor accidently removed one line. You were ranked #21 according to the player list, and it just so happens it goes from 20 to 22. You had me worried & confused for a moment :)

In my game pm near the top it says that the latest a game should start is 19:00 GMT. Does this mean every day or just on the final Sunday date? It sounds like every day but I don't think that's right.

Will players' rating be refreshed after Pyramid League finishes or not?

We have been waiting for over 2 weeks so far to see "Round 4 pairings" of the WCO 2017. Actually, this long waiting has become a little bit annoying. Despite site's problems, aren't 4 weeks enough for a match to be played?

I have a question to better understand the way Swiss perfect works. One could assume after round four according to the standings that don homer vs KARAISKAKIS should be table 5 but instead they are table 10. Table 1-4 is everyone above them in the standings while Greg and Ruben sit at 9 and 10 in the standings so should be the very next table (5). Instead napster and gpet0 sit at table five with a round five standing of 12 and 14. I would maybe understand if gpet0s and napsters m-buch and buch were higher but it's not.It does not appear to be logical. Why?

I don't think the position of the game in the pairing list is important, only the rank after the previous round  that is listed below the pairing list is relevant.
