1. When will the first World Cup of Online Stratego be arranged?
It is still a big secret that is exclusively reserved for active members of this stratego.com forum and that is exceptionnally communicated on this April 1st day. In fact the first World Cup of Online Stratego will be occuring during next summer. As you all have heard civil war in Syria is extremely expensive and nobody, neither russians, nor americans, nor frenchs nor greeks know how to stop it. As you have also be able to see our friend Ufuk disappeared from this forum since a few weeks. This is all related. In fact he has been very busy negotiating with all parties in Syria, Syrian government, isis, russians, americans, frenchs, british and all others who are trying to find a solution to end this war . He had this brilliant idea and was able to sell it to all these nations, that to stop this endless war people shall continue the fight on Stratego board instead of in the field. His idea had big success among all parties involved. So Ufuk is currently setting up the first World Cup of Online Stratego (but this is big secret) that will oppose all these nations against each other and the final winner will have the prestigious honor to be the new government of Syria recognized by all. All participants have agreed to this principle so if russians win Syria will become a russian subentity, if american wins Syria will be governed by US government and so on, if current syrian government wins they will continue to govern but with the big difference that they will be recognized by all. Everybody is very happy with this extremely fair and inexpensive way to stop this war and its casualties.
Now the issue is that all these nations are no big stratego experts and need to train a lot until summer if they want to win. So they are looking for voluntary stratego trainers and have contacted stratego.com to search for candidates for such job. To fullfill the conditions stratego trainers shall have a minimum ELO of 600, have participated to at least 2 tournaments on stratego.com and be interested in training any nation without political preference. All has to be purely focused on transmitting stratego passion. Volunteers can apply here under in this cafe and MT and TC will then make the necessary coordination with Ufuk. So feel free to apply.
