For whatever stupid reason, this ♥♥♥♥ing forum software refused to combine all picks into one post, always refusing DH and N1's picks to be included with other picks.

 

Either way, all picks posted.

1 Hielco 3:3 Nortrom

 

If there was a Classico in Online Stratego it would probably involve these two gentlemen. They have played each other numerous times in various online tournaments. In WCO 5 there was no clear winner and the points were split.

4 UnladenSwallow : josephwhite
The young talent from the UK versus the best playing in South-Africa by a long shot. But who is stronger in this duel?

 

A few more players put UnladenSwallow to win, but did they study the consistent scoring of josephwhite in past versions of the WCO?

 

7 Master Mind : panther65
Master Mind is trying to improve his allround game play by participating in the Dutch Barrage Championship where he managed to get quite a lot of points.  On the other side we got panther65 who already beat Spion... in this version of the WCO.

 

Will panther get more points of the young Dutch players or is our TC member too strong for him?

 

 

12 Fairway - don mitsos

In a game between the American Gold player vs Greek international Don Mitsos I would not know where to put my money before the game started. In WCO 5 Fairway managed to get the points.

 

13 tobermoryx : Don_Homer

The other Don on www.stratego.com playing against tobermoryx. Based on real tournament experience Don_Homer should have a an edge and although the score is not published yet, I could tell you that Don_Homer indeed got the donut in this game.

18 hondjekapitein : garlick

 

One of the youngest Dutch player vs the upcoming talent from France. Garlick has played a lot of games to go through the learning curve of the game online but is it enough to take down one of the famous Stratego Brothers?

23 LeChuck : Napoleon 2ème

After the game N2 vs garlick, N2 is now facing the other upcoming French talent. They are together in the Backstabbers team but in the WCO its every man for himself.

 

Can we expect another French victory here or will Napoleon 2eme consolidate this game?

Good question:) What I meant to say was a player that climbed the ranks by playing their games.

Based on your question I realized that I forgot the highest ELO ranked players have a platinum rating :)
