The Semi-finals: a repeat of 1st v 2nd in the group stage... perhaps the draw needs some re-shuffling next year.

Champions League Final 2018

playa1 will be joining Hielco in the final after a win over Great Manos yesterday.

Both players have one Champions League Title to their name. Hielco won the competition in 2016, while playa1 is looking to become the first player to retain the title after his victory last year.

From all the staff at the Pioneer, good luck. May it be a tremendous duel with plenty of pieces meeting gruesome deaths.

There are just over 48 hours until Champions League registration closes.

Currently, 36 players have signed up.

Of that group, only two have tasted victory before - Sem van Geffen and Nortrom - the winners of PRO Ladder and WinterTourn. (3 if you count josephwhite’s debut title in the PRO Random last year).

With a string of big names missing, many players are sensing that this could finally be their year for glory.

Or are Hielco, OVERLORD, playa1, gkaros, Losermaker and Sniper (who comprise all remaining past champions of online stratego) just waiting to sneak in at the last minute?

With battle side tickets in the Last 16 fetching between 50 and 100 battlecoins - and the old guard of champions seeming fatigued by tournament play - a well known consumer group recently criticised the tournament organisers for pricing fans out of the market.

Luckily it’s not real.
