Re: 2018 WC Public Press EoG Discussion

As a note on coordination against a solo in PP, I happen to have quite a bit of experience in that. And I'm surprised that you all were not able to coordinate better. What I found to work well in my experience is talking about moves in percentages. 50/50 you'll do move A vs move B. And you will expe...

Re: Whittle Down Series

Oh you're right. It is 17, not 14. And I laid out two different ways it could go. Depends on how people want it structured. I just want whatever way gets enough bodies at the "table" to get it going. 1) Start the new game as soon as the necessary eliminations happen, and force draw (this would lead ...

Whittle Down Series

I'm interested in doing a series of 3-4 games on different maps. Full press WTA scoring, and I don't have a preference on anon. We'd start on World Diplomacy IX. After 4 players are eliminated,the remaining 10 will start a game on Modern Diplomacy. After 3 are eliminated, the remaining 7 start a cla...

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

Yeah, the scoring threshold is much higher than I thought. It was either gonna be me or CptMike that knocked you out.

The good news for Balki is that he's guaranteed in if this last one draws, and it looks very much like a draw.

Hi everyone,

I've decided to grant free pause time through Monday to anyone who will be attending this year's WDC in Washington, D.C. If you plan on attending, just send me a message and I'll pause the your games.

Re: Announcing the 2018 GvI and FvA Showdowns

Hey there everyone! It's been a while, and I think time to update everyone. Both tournaments are now reaching their finals stages, and only have a few games left. First up we have the GvI Showdown. Those who are still alive right now, I just gave them the worst possible ranking they could have. The ...

I think goldfinger already tried to exclude people with 7 finished games, but he may have missed some. I think trip for example already finished 7 games.
Whoops, yep my spreadsheet missed one of trip's games. I excluded those who had already finished, or needed more than 1 solo to get there.

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

So we have 6 people who can break into the top with a draw
(rdrivera, 2WL, CptMike, Ezio, trip, and myself)

And 9 people who can break into the top with a solo
(Calmar, Cmdr Shears, Zachattack, y2kjbk, Hamilton Brian, NoFog, brkyzgn, Kench and SpaceDip)
