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.
