Hello Playdip friends!!! I am hosting the Online Diplomacy Championships 2019 on http://webdiplomacy.net this year and would LOVE if you joined me there! I know it is your rival site and all so wouldn't it be awesome if you played in the tournament and kicked all the webdip players' asses? Yes it would be.

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

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.

*ALL PLAYERS THAT HAVE THE FOLLOWING QUALIFICATIONS:
You must be a reliable player. Let me know your NMR/Surrenders rate

Almost certainly not signing up but do want to post so I can follow this. These tournaments are pretty cool.
You don't know what I'm thinking...because I don't know what I'm doing.

(1) How much is the prize money?
(2) Are these games intended to be anonymous?
(3) Has Webdiplomacy eliminated the glitch websites that allowed web developers and “people in the know” over there to break anonymity in tournament games without consequence?

1) Yes
2) Yes
3) The games will be anon because you will not know who you are playing with at all.

If anyone breaks anon they will be kicked out for metagaming and I will accidentally spill coffee on them when I see them next

Count me in!
WarSmith - Currently rating 1685 ranked 17th (have been in the top 5 during my decade here). Highest placed playdipper at WDC17 (although far behind you! We did share one cracking game though).
Reliability -over 99% (and I’m a cheater-hunting mod!)
Webdip account: WarM - although I haven’t logged in for years (we had an inter site tourney quite some time back) and may struggle to remember the password!
When does it start? The end of February is an incredibly busy fortnight for me.
All the best.
