Re: 1v1 Puzzles

Now in video form!

This particular puzzle impressed me a hell of a lot so I asked RJ if I could put it up on my youtube channel. I'd strongly recommend you try both this one and his puzzle 6 here, both of them have really solid and interesting answers!

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

If you draw the same country in both games in a set, please don't enter orders until I reassign them!
I'll be checking through games periodically to see if any reassignments are needed, but if you send me a PM if this happens then I'll get to it more quickly and you can start sooner :D

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

We have officially hit 32! All players who signed up are in, which will lead to a bit of an elo disparity in some of the groups but as MM said, it's a solid opportunity to learn and/or surprise everyone.

I'll be doing general setup now (including group draws) and sending out PMs later tonight.

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

Updated the list, we're at 28 now. I'm going to go ahead and shoot invites to inactive players to see if we can encourage a few to come back - 1v1 players on other sites is a good idea but I don't think any other sites have a good 1v1 rating system, so I'm not sure how to find out who even plays 1v1...

Wow, we must be pretty desperate if I get an invitation.. Can barely remember ever playing any.
You've played 19 according to the list! As long as you do well enough in the games (or you win against good players) you can rise in elo pretty damn quickly :D Vixol is at #51 with 9 games played.

Given there's one day left til signups are supposed to close and we still have 13 slots open, I'm going to extend signups until Monday (you're welcome MM :P ) and PM players 50-100 on the 12mo list. Maaaybe making the list 12mo dropoff was too long because it seems a lot of those players aren't here...

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

To clarify on that last point - if you look at the signup list in the 3rd post, anyone with a * qualifies automatically, everyone else's qualification is based on their most recent Elo.

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

you (captainmeme) should randomize the country assignment in some other manner, if this ever becomes relevant. I'm not sure how necessary this is - the problem seems to be that you can predict the result rather than actively manipulate it - but I'm happy to use some offsite randomiser to determine ...

Re: Been a while. Need a new game.

It feels like a wasteland. Is there a big tourny going on or something? Has everyone moved to PlayDip? BackStabbr and Conspiracy are the big two in terms of playerbase now, Conspiracy especially. I think the big reason is that PlayDip and webDip are lagging behind a lot on the interface front, and ...

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

Another good catch! That was down to my own laziness because I copy/pasted the description for the tournament page from HR's writeup on the old tournament site. I should clarify there - this year we're doing a tiebreaker set in the event of a knockout stage tie (2 games), and then one further tiebre...

Nice catch, I've fixed the start date :D No worries on the starting pause, as long as we can get your games started ASAP when you get back it should be fine. The one week of pause time is not a limit, it's a minimum no-questions-asked guarantee; as long as there's a good reason and it's not holding ...

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

Who is in "the top 32 ranked players in the 12-month dropoff spreadsheet (excluding myself)"? I can read it as either ranks 1-33 excluding our wonderful TD, or ranks 1-32 excluding our wonderful TD. Asking for a friend who turns out to be rank 33. The 32 top players if I'd been taken off the list, ...

A group stage will then be drawn, where each group will contain one player from each pot. The defending champion will always be the top seed. There shall be 8 g...
