Champions League 2016 reached 79 participants (http://forum.strateg...n/?hl=champions)

 

3 Withdrew or were ineligible before the start, leaving 76 starters.

in group results there are 73 players played their games http://forum.strateg...results-tables/ . This is why I consider the final participation in number 73

In that case, barring any withdrawals, just one more sign up is needed to make the new online world record.

If there is anyone on the fence reading this, get your name down to create history...

Yes, well, I am always up for such. You know that, Theo. But instead all credits go to Marcaurele we got a special report from, filing for the tournament:

Dear players,
 
The 3rd WCO has begun! The WCO team is very pleased and honored by the amount of sign ups this year. Thanks for the trust and making this event as great as possible. With 74 sign ups and 10 different countries the original goal of uniting the playerbase, both on- and offline, worldwide, seems to be succesful iniative.

And some more news from the WCO here: we will organize another edition of the Stratego Wizard to celebrate this record breaking WCO3.

 

The Stratego Wizard is a skill quizz that shows how much people know about Stratego. It will involve predicting matches and other things relating to Stratego and the WCO tournament.

 

We are planning 4 or 5 rounds only for this quizz and everyone can attend. This means you don't have to participate in the WCO to play in the Wizard.

 

As soon as the rules for this edition of the Wizard and the first questions for this quizz are prepared it will have its own thread.

As one of the organizers I am very happy that we hit 74 players.

 

It is extra nice that the last player was eddiemo0915, we discussed admitting him to the tournament because he is clearly experienced enough to use the www.stratego.com interface , but he did not have the 250 ranking yet on Thursday.

 

However he managed to hit 256 before the end of the signup period and signed himself up with his forum account like all other admitted players. A warm welcome to him from me in his first WCO and as the golden player!

 

If you want to put a smile on his face and reward his effort to get his rating up in time, please like this post. I am pretty sure he will read it. :)

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.

 

Morx

 

An proposal for the future:

 

To participate at a tournament you can change the rule as any player has to play 10 games on 'stratego.com' or must have a minimum rating of 250. On this way an experienced stratego player can enter very easily in the tournament and have after the played games the experience - mouse moving, use pieces, setup, .... - of 'stratego.com' to play here (an interested player who was uncertain will play some games more for his own).


The only thing that doubles if you share it with somebody was happiness.

Hi,

We're always looking for ways to improve the WCO. The WCO team itself wasn't happy the way this rule played out - you can expect it to be altered for next year's WCO.
