Re: Official start of the Nexus Diplomacy Tournament

Due to the size of this tournament and because we'd love to see people participate, anyone making the final board will receive 500 :points: as a prize. If you then finish in the top 3 you'll get an additional 1,000, 750, or 500 :points: for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively as well as a banner for you...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Discussion (finished games only)

It’s easy to say that, but when you’re deciding on which shark to take a chance in siding with the cutthroat guy who played every dirty trick on the way to the finals definitely gets more scrutiny over the guy who of course will betray me as well, but potentially not quite as early as he seems like ...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Discussion (finished games only)

Even if it’s not talked about, people will still know who everybody is by year 3 of the finals. Top players often are pretty easily recognizable, especially when you know they’re one of seven people.

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Discussion (finished games only)

I think there’s a luxury to be had here where visitors don’t have to concern themselves with the side implications of these games being ranked. The home team takes a collateral hit when they gift a draw that they could have soloed in that it would have improved their site rankings while a guest can ...

Re: Development for Tournaments

I'm just referring to the sub-header section of the Finished Tournaments tabs. That rest can be fully dynamic code but this should easily be static and manually updated given how rare a finish tournament occurs.

Or am i missing something?

Re: Travel Destinations

Just traveled through Sri Lanka this part year and I would recommend it. It's still pretty non-touristy but still has a cool backpacker vibe in places. It's got beaches and hill country, interesting wildlife, an interesting culture mix that's influenced by both India and SE Asia, and amazing food. V...

Math was way too complicated for me to figured out, but I heard solos are still good regardless of the scoring system so I just stick with that strategy to keep it simple.

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

Awesome job with the list!

Probably pushing my luck, but any chance we could indicate what sites players are representing? Always fun to see in this one where the frontrunners are coming from. I’m far too lazy to do it myself and can’t remember where the master list is anyways.

In other news, "poor" VI dropped a spot due to a thrown game in the ODC tournament...
The true headline here is “VI is back as #1 for standard press classic games”.

All other games are just glorified checkers anyways.

I assume you’re east coast? How many hours do these games typically last?
