The ones that have been posted are on the World Diplomacy Database

http://www.world-diplomacy-database.com ... /index.php

Which is a lot of fun to play around with if you're into stats and whatnot. Not all events have as much detail as we would like - but we have Top Men working on improving that!
Thank you, @dancing queen.

The 500 points would only be for winning, surely?

Not sure we want to be celebrating mediocrity... 😉

Absolutely, Durga. As you know, it's only envy on my part...

It's just not the same if it's not in video form.

TBF it's not JUST because you're geographically diverse. I'm drooling over everyone who wants in!

Wait.

New Promotional video - themed for the USA Holiday today. 11 boards pre-registered so far, including two boards from Playdip.com - how many Webdippers do we have? I don't have a count yet!

You really could have punctuated that baby with an "Island of Mypos" banner at the end.

More importantly, where was the Canada Day themed video with Parliament Hill in the background? I sense you’re phoning this in Chris.

1) When someone from the Island of Mypos registers, they will get a spot in the next video, I promise!

2) When Canada hosts WDC (in Vancouver? In 2021?) Then such a video will be produced!

:P

Make it so! #stabbingwestward2021

How do they select the spots each year anyways?

Popular vote - there's a process, but basically if your club wants to host, you come to WDC and present a bid, after which there is a vote. Online too, so not just the folks in the room decide.

There has been some talk of getting an adjudication engine to double check all results for the top board, too - we will see if we can make the technology for that work.
Why not just make a WebDip game to mirror the tournament game, enter the moves for each team, and spit out what the game shows for the right results? Pretty reliable that way, as long as the moves are entered correctly. And if a mod is on hand, mistakes can be fixed.

Essentially this is what I meant by "adjudication engine" - one of the online portals (I'm partial to the point/click of backstabbr but w/e) that will backstop-and-or-substitute for a human GM. The trick is to be able to do it quickly and without errors, right? We will be practicing this at some house games. The Chicago f2f group holds boardless games now here on WebDip so we know it can be done!

A nice feature of the adjudication engine idea would be that it would allow for remote, live spectating of all boards that use the engine. That would be a great way to promote the event and Diplomacy generally.
