As you all have seen the signup is open again. During the live world championship I was allowed to have a 1 minute talk during the opening ceremony about the WCO. Some of the goals of the WCO are to build on the international community and to give players a chance to play in an online tournament that resembles a live tournament.


This year we saw amazing synergy between online and live play. A lot of the online players found their way to Marmari. A large number of those are from the strong growing and very succesfull Greek community. Some of them travelled 7 to 8 hours which is similar to flying in from the Uk (great you were there TheOptician), Holland or any city in Germany.

Everyone was excited to meet Wogomite who made the big trip from the USA and played his first live tournament. Seeing him sign up for the WCO while he is still travelling back home put a big smile on my face this morning.

I hope many other players that were in Greece or were interested to be there but could not make it will sign up in the coming few days for what will probably be the largest WCO yet.

So it happened: the WCO already hit over 50 signups with still more than two weeks to go till the signup closes.

 

In what will be the biggest WCO yet, many new players will learn in practice how the Swiss tournament system works.

 

Based on what we know now, the prize for the top 3 players will be free entry to the 2018 live world championship. As soon as the location is known we will let everyone know so you can start planning your trips.

With a few more days to go , the signups hit now well over 60. At the moment a few players that signed up did not meet the criteria.

 

They didnt use their forum account or did not have 250 rating yet.

 

The reason we ask for those, is to make sure that

 

1 People know how to use their forum account, all communication for the WCO goes via private threads for all games played

2 Players are aware of the interface of stratego.com. 250 ratings means they have played some games. Some players that just registered could be excellent live players, but to play in the WCO we use the site and it takes a few games to get used to the pieces, the way the mouse cursor works with selecting pieces etc.

 

Im looking forward to what seems to be the biggest WCO yet.

My friend wants to participate but he doesn't have 250 elo. However, he has played many games with me and is used to the interface. Almost all his games are friendlies versus me but he has played around 15 ranked games (and maybe 35 games against me, I don't remember). He's at 172 Elo right now and could definitely reach 250 with his skillset right now but I don't know if he will be able to by the deadline.

As stated by Morx already, the main purpose is to ensure the player has some experience with the interface, we'll discuss this topic and get back at you.

He's played 76 games and knows how to accept friendships, challenge people, load setups, etc. He's never had any issues when I have played him.

@texaspete09

rules are for all the players the same and we can not change them now or make exceptions. Your friend has 2 days to play few games and reach the needed requirements. It is not so big deal.

Please check your ranking in case there are any errors. "New" players get a 600 rating.

34 hours before the closing of the registration period and already 68 fulfill the requirements to join the 3rd WCO. Anyone who has not decided yet to join has only few hours left. Our advice? Do not lose the chance!

13 hours left  and the number of participations now is 71 !!! 

I remind that the record of participations in an online tournament is 73 (CL 2016)

Very close to have a new record in the history of online tournaments.... in a few hours we will know

 

p.s. btw the record in live tournaments is exactly the same ,,,  73 in WC 2002 in Rotterdam
