This is where Junior Stratego Players may post, spread rumors, and talk about things in general. Stratego related or not.


I have no idea what that thing under my avatar is. I've always liked stickers

I'm sure everyone already knows this, but I'll post it anyway.

 

Moriarty/Caesar101 has withdrawn from managing the Junior Tournament. Master Mind and I (Fairway) are the two remaining managers. 

 

Moriarty also said that he is quitting stratego as well.

Reminder for all participating players- because the tournament is based on seeding by ELO, make sure to refresh your rank (log out of your account, then lock back in to refresh it) before tomorrow (24 December) 23:59 GMT. ​At 23:59 GMT your seeding will be determined based on your ELO/rank, and you want to get the best seed as possible.

Another note, this rank will be based off the ​account you have registered with​- NOT your highest ranking alias!

why not use napster's clean ranking + look at the 'Max ELO' column ?


I used to play against a few drunken idiots in College and University. I just recently discovered this game online, playing my first matches against real-world opponents. After 100 games, I'm now one of the top 10 players in the world.

That is a fair suggestion, and I can discuss it with yellowhat, but I can see a few issues with that proposal, 

1) Not all the players registered are on the clean list due to not being 500 ELO

2) I'm not sure if we necessarily would want Max ELO, I think that we would prefer current ELO.

Yellowhat has had an unexpected absence of 3 days so far, I would like to wait for him but if he doesn't log on by the end of tonight I will go ahead and send out the first round match PMs. The first round will be December 25th-December 31st. The 3 players with the best ELO (Overlord_98, TexasPete09, Major Nelson) will receive a 1st round by and seeds 4-11 (I would like to discuss with Yellowhat if to determine these we will use max or current ELO, but if he's not active I will make an executive decision) will battle each other in the first round. Seeds 1-3 (players mentioned above) will not see any action first round.

 

Either way, we will start the first round tonight for me, early morning for our European players, if we lose a day and some matches are not played it won't be a big deal, we will offer extensions.

 

I will work on a Challonge bracket and post that in a topic as soon as possible.

 

Just want to keep everyone updated- Merry Christmas and have a great Tournament! :)

(2) Texaspete09 (1000 ELO)   -   BYE

(3) Major Nelson (951 ELO)   -   BYE

(4) Master Mind (822 ELO)   -   BYE

 

(5) Henry Domerkant (800) v. (12) Silverhammer (353)

(6) Roeczak (733) v. (11) PK_13 (398)

(7) Fairway (607) v. (10) jimmys13 (400?)

(8) Yellowhat (526) v. (9) Fks (424)

 

I will send out the Match PMs within the hour.

Yellowhat has created a challonge bracket which details the tournament, this can be found here:
