This was the 3rd edition of the WCO, with an initial signup of 76 players, the largest one ever held.

 

I would first of all like to thank all players for participating. Sixty percent of the highest ranked on the site was participating in this edition of the WCO.

 

There were some very exciting games, some highlights in tense battles, some lowlights when the server had some issues, a few arbitrage cases on high boards with emotions running high but that just shows the importance and excitement caused by the event.

 

If we talk about the tenseness of the tournament the Nortrom vs Napoleon that has been on all over the forums  comes to mind especially. Nobody could have guessed that this would lead the following standings at the end of 10 rounds:

1   Nortrom         NL    - Gold Medal
2   Napoleon 1er    CH    - Silver Medal
3   Losermaker      AU    - Bronze Medal
4   *OverLord*      GR   
5   Master Mind     NL    
6   Major Nelson    GR    
7   KARAISKAKIS     GR    
8   gkaros          GR    
9   Spion...        NL    
10  Unladen Swallow GB 

The top 3 players will also get free entry to the live World Championship Stratego 2018 in The Netherlands as sponsored by ISF. More details on the live World Championship will follow on the forums when known.

 

 

We would like all players to participate in the survey for WCO3 by clicking on the link. The feedback will evaluated and  used to prepare for WCO4.

 

 

For players that like to have the full result files, they can be found here

Spoiler: same as last year the 3 winners will also get a Diploma designed for the WCO. It is made on special paper and a very unique reminder of the event.

Congratulations to Pim, Daniel, and all who have achieved a personal best this tournament.
Thanks WCO team for another great tournament. I hope one day I will make it over for a live one, but I don't think it will be this year :)

Cheers,

That's a shame, you would get a free entry. ;)

By "free entry" what exactly does this mean?

 

Also where can I find more information on the tournament?

It means no entrance fee has to be paid by top 3 of WCO (not transferable to another player / year).

 

More info will be announced later. It will be held in The Netherlands, most likely last week of august.

I'd have to check the past few years, but usually its around € 20 or 25 ( this covers two days of live WC + country teams/open tournament )
