The first 12 sign-ups are a fact. Spread the word about the WCO and re-direct as many as possible players to the sign up thread ;).

Message me on Discord for more game breaking bugs such as: how to cause your opponent to lose points after a victory, identify whether a piece is a scout based on how it moves, and the piece movement kick to login screen bug.

Note: Major nelson is listed as GB, opposed to GR, based on his current country of residence. Same goes for Texaspete09 being listed CA opposed to US.

 

We have 13 different nationalities participating in the WCO.

The first round has brought us some surprising results, the second round has started and the pairings can be found here
 
WCO Contest #1 was quite a success, unfortunately no one managed to grab the prize, so we are going to give it an other go in WCO Contest #2

 
The matches featured are:
 
GKAROS gr.jpg vs ROECZAK gr.jpg. A match between two Greek players; one having won a WCO once, the other being very much occupied with organising tournaments on here. The WCO team expects this to be a closely contested match. 
 
SORROW us.jpg vs MAJOR NELSON gr.jpg Two players who have climbed the ranks rapidly, both also scoring formidable results in the last live WC each participated in. Once again, the WCO team expects this to be a close match and we dare not make a prediction
 
MASTER MIND nl.jpg vs NAPOLEON 2EME ch.jpg Two youngsters being matched up against each other. History shows that Master mind, in the WCO 2018, managed to take down Napoleon 2. WCO team predicts a close match ;).
 
GRIZZLYBEAR de.jpg vs AWFLY de.jpg A battle between two German players, we feel this match could go either way too as both are very solid players. In 2017, those players met in the WCO resulting in a victory for Grizzlybear. AWFly upset some predictions in WCO Contest #1 by taking down maxroelofs
 
LEPPIE be.jpg vs THE MONK YOYEAH de.jpg We feel both players deserve to play on a higher virtual board, but only one will go up, do you know who?
 
MIRMIDONAS.GR gr.jpg vs GARLICK fr.jpg Both players were a bit unfortunate in round #1, being paired up against respectively playa1 and Henry Domerkant (who both meet now too). We predict a close match between the player having finished #3 in the Patras battles 2019 and the player having played a lot of online games and having participated in the Basel tournament this year.
 
TEMPLATEREX nl.jpg vs PHAETON gr.jpg Neither were able to upset their opponent in round #1, but both players have had some nice results leading up to this event. We feel this will be a closely contested match and we dare not to pick a favorite between these two.

It’s unfortunate, I like Major Nelson but he has to be destroyed for the greater good.

Really interesting contest results, my game against Mastermind is said to be either a ein for me, a loss for me  and a draw, it look unpredictable !

Some of the contestants have failed to contact with the MMBC (Master Mind Betting Company), so they were unaware of the fact I have a fantastic record against you - it turned out all these voted for either a draw or a win for you...
