The Stratego Champions League is, without doubt, a fantastic idea. It seems logical to start a Silver- and Bronze Champions league according to the current rankings (Silver rankings and Bronze rankings). I suggest 32 players for both leagues. Two leagues with 8 pools. Each pool consists four users. Personally I think the most honest/fair way to join the leagues after registration will be according to the rankings (50% of the registered people) and the other half will be qualified. In real-life tourneys we used to get a tourney with participants as strong as possible, hence my ranking suggestion. On the other hand I think the tourney must be available for everyone, hence my qualification suggestion. Duration of both leagues from start to end: 4-6 months.
Suppose there are 300 people to sign up for the Champions League tournaments. According to the ranking standings you can already determine which participants will be put in the Silver or Bronze Champions League. The rankings determine the top 16 players who have signed up. The top 16 players of the Silver rankings are automatically qualified for the Silver Champions League. The top 16 players of the Bronze rankings are automatically qualified for the Bronze Champions League.
The other people who are not placed directly can enter through qualifications. People with a Silver ranking fight among themselves who will get the remaining 16 places for the Silver Champions League. The same principle for the Bronze Champions League. Those qualifications the line "best of three" strikes me as a good application.
To rule out the luck factor as much as possible 6 games each player in the pool phase seems to me the best possibility. Two points for a win, one for a draw and zero for a loss. So you get fair final positions in the group stages. Thus, each participant in a group (4 participants per group) may play 6 games. So everyone can play each other two times. The top two players after 6 games go through the next round (1/8 finals). From this point (after the pools) you have to deal with a knock-out system. Here is the line ‘best of three’ the best application. This applies to the semi-finals. The final is just one game which determines the winner. If it’s a tie the match will be replayed until there is a winner.
About international country tournaments:
I think starting national federations is a good idea. Everyone with the same nationality should be free to sign in with his national federation. A national team (if we play ‘team’ tourneys) can consist of 4 users. It would be nice to organize a World Cup. A World Cup should be an annual event along with the Champions Leagues. Still I don’t know how to organize such a World Cup. That will be more difficult to achieve than the Champions Leagues.

I agree with Trickz that will be playing 32 players sectioned into 8 groups of 4 players.
you can register by captains and above.
Stated if players are say 48 will qualify the first 16 in the ranking and the remaining 32 will be playing qualifying round to enter in groups of champions league stratego. The qualification shall be judged in 3 games.
The 8 group will include two of the best players on the 16th (rank) in each group, and two players from the qualifying.
Each player in the Group will make 6(six) games and the score will be 2-1-0 (W-D-L). In case of a tie we will have Play off matches between the two.
After the groups until the final, the winner will comes out of a game with his opponent.
There will be 9 coordinator tournaments, each one will undertake a group to oversee and coordinate the games of players. The coordinator should not be located as a player in the group will be moderator.
