Online Diplomacy Championships 2019

Hi everyone. I will be running the Online Diplomacy Championships (ODC) this year on webDiplomacy.net

The ODC is a diplomacy tournament that invites all* diplomacy players (online and face-to-face) to compete for the esteemed spot of #1 best diplomacy player on the internet

If you want to sign up please read ALL the rules here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iC- ... sp=sharing

FORMAT: The tournament will be played in three rounds (Qualification, Semi-Finals, and Finals), with each player playing two games per round. All games will be played at webDiplomacy.net with the following settings: the original (Classic) Diplomacy map, hidden draw votes, anonymous players, full press, 36-hour phase length, and a 5 point bet.

# of PLAYERS: I have not decided a cap yet but if the # of players is getting too unruly I will close the sign ups early. So if you are interested in playing I recommend you sign up immediately especially given I need to balance players from all websites/f2f.

*ALL PLAYERS THAT HAVE THE FOLLOWING QUALIFICATIONS:
You must be a reliable player. On webDiplomacy.net this means over 80% reliability rating or you successfully make a case to me via PM/email on why you should be allowed to play.

AND

You must have played 10 games of diplomacy in some capacity (f2f or online or postal or any combination of these).

If you have further questions or anything is confusing/needs clarification please let me know asap

It's okay we can get your GR when ghug runs GR for the month. Just put your name on the list and your RR if you're interested :)

New England Fire Squad your PGR is 109. You posted your ranking!

Just wanting to make sure you don't get seeded incorrectly!

My silly mistake- I thought we were being asked for our highest position on the list, and mine was 849. FS is correct, my peak is 109, I believe.

Many thanks to Durga for volunteering to run this. TDing is a huge amount of work, and she deserves all your +1s.

In addition to the infinitely more valuable prize of a free drink, webDip is proud to offer totally meaningful internet points: 500 :points: to finalists, 2500 :points: to the winner.


I encourage everybody to sign up. It's a great chance to play with good players you haven't seen before, and it should be very important to all of you that webDip wins.
