"My alias 'bardatos' is my highest account, but not my most known account, so may I ask for an exception? " ( Yellowhat )
WCO Team is ok with 'Yellowhat' being used instead.

Can I play with my highest account " Conqueror-Gr" instead of Overlord_98?
Υοu have to use the account name which is be used in INTERNATIONAL ONLINE STRATEGO RANKING AND RATING and this is the account with name Overlord_98
In special case you can ask to change your name in keier list but this maybe will take some time.

These players are newcomers and maybe they are not familiar yet with online tournaments and how it works , so if anyone who reads this post can contact them this will be very helpfull.
For all the above players plus those players who have not give yet their availabilty we would like to remind the related rules
4.3. Each round will take a maximum of 2 weeks.
In case a game has not been played, the WC team may decide that, based on effort of getting the game played by one or both of the participants.
A: The game is won by one of the participants, awarding the winning participant 6 points, the losing participant 1 point ( the losing participant showed some effort ), this scoring will be used in case of a legitimate disconnect.
B: The game is won by one of the participants, awarding the winning participant 6 points, the losing participant 0 points
( the losing participant showed no or nearly zero effort ), this scoring can be used in case of an illegitimate disconnect.
C: The game is a draw ( both participants showed a lot of effort ).
D: Both participants receive 1 point ( both participants showed some effort ).
E: Both participants receive 0 points ( neither participant showed any effort ).
F: One participant receives 1 point, the other participant receives 0 points ( in case the former has showed some, but very minimal effort, and the other participant has showed no, or nearly no effort ).
G: Otherwise, to be decided by WC team.
Effort is measured in: Availability aswell as actively trying to get the game played
Above also applies in case of any disputes or / and difficulties, during or / and outside the actual game.

Liefdemeisje deeply apologizes for the unconvenience for all of the organizers and players.
I did not play Stratego in the last months due to private reasons and did not think about telling anyone here that I have to forfeit.
I respect the removal and will also probably not be able to play Stratego anymore, but I do feel sorry that I didn't say anything.
Good luck for all the competitors and shall fairness and friendship in the Stratego community remain being valued high in the future,

WCO round 3 will be extended another week.
Due to the ongoing site problems 2 games were not played or not succesfully played. Those games will get an extension of 1 week, hopefully the site will be fully functional by then again. The players in these games will get an individual instruction in their game threads. Three other games were no or low effort was taken by one or both players will be judged individually and results of those games will be communicated as by our normal procedure. More news will be communicated when available regarding this.
We are sorry for the delay in the tournament, but want to ensure that the games that are played are fun and are not influenced by slow movement and potential disconnect issues.
Thanks everyone for your patience in this

Please make the 4th round.
3 weeks is enough to play a game. 4 weeks is too much.
I think you take a bad decision.
The site has been unplayable for 3 weeks. It is nearly impossible for a lot of people to play right now. Be patient.

I fully support the WCO committee's decision. I have not been playing any games at all on the site since it has been slow, as Malcom says, it is at the point where it is unplayable. We can only hope that they (the stratego.com owners) do what they say they are going to do to fix the site soon.

The WCO team deeply regrets the necessity of the decision. We, as organizers, value the fun for players highly. Delaying the progress is definitely not a fun option, but having 30+ games with issues, disconnects and lag is going to be far worse.
We had hoped for the issues to be resolved already, unfortunately (out of our / MT control) this is not the case. Continuing now would lead to many issues. Even if all games would have been played (and thus a new pairing could be made) we would have recommended players to wait untill the issue was resolved.
