Dear All,

I would like to extend an invitation to you all, to attend (virtually) the 1st World Diplomacy Classic, organized by the very excellent Bill Hackenbracht.

Details can be found here: https://liberty-cup.com/world-diplomacy-classic/

The virtual World Diplomacy Classic will be a live tournament held from December 18-20, 2020, with game play on Backstabbr.com and player interactions conducted on Discord.

The tournament will be held over 5 rounds on Friday 18th December and Saturday 19th December, with the Classic Championship determined by a Top Board on Sunday 20th December. Players are welcome to participate in as many rounds as they’d like, but only their top two scores will count (we’ll be using “Tribute Scoring,” by way of the Windy City Weasels and Brandon Fogel).

The qualifying rounds will be at staggered start times, to make it as easy as possible for players across the globe to compete at a time convenient to themselves.

There will be a US$12 entry fee, which will fund awards (and shipping). The remaining proceeds will be used for the following purposes:
1) to offset any COVID-19 related financial losses sustained by a Diplomacy tournament organizer (i.e. lost deposit money, etc.).
2) to support organizations that provide prenatal support to economically disadvantaged birth parents.

We hope to see you there and enjoy a fine few days of camaraderie, stabs and memorable Diplomacy!

Phlegmatic

Could somebody tell how the rating/ranking is going to apply, like points, square counts, shared draws, game length and such things.

And why is it called Classic?
