ODC @ PDET 2017: Official Unofficial Update

Unofficial Leaderboard
One Round 2 game was disqualified. Bold signifies confirmed placement in the final, an asterisk that the player has finished their round 3 game. Note that I have not disqualified players that have surrendered, because I am unsure of which were sanctioned surrenders.

Results table by country
Austria's making a small comeback in Round 3.

Unofficial Signup
UPDATE: Following the recent questioning of my decision to limit the Central Powers restriction to just AI, I think WHS is a bit hesitant to use my board allocation system. And, anyway, if he does reinstate the AIG, that system becomes problematic. Mind you, it would have been problematic for CB as well (it seems you can't sensibly exclude all players of AIG in one round from playing Germany in a 3 round tournament, as it effectively prevents you sensibly seeding the boards).

So I'm uncertain what format the board allocation will take. I'll send through the spreadsheet with all the options to WHS and we'll see what happens.

Incidentally, for future reference, CB expressed an interest in being able to play, as well as organise, the tournament, but he couldn't think how to do it. I suspect it'd be fairly simple to do with two mensch, each running the other's side of the board. There'd be a minor issue in figuring out how to randomise allocation to each side every round while maintaining relatively-equal seeding, but that's not a big problem with ~100 entrants

Hi guys,

Carebear's organised an excellent tournament, but he's clearly got a lot of pulls on his time at the moment. WHSeward (who is the poor sap who's volunteered himself to do the game setups) told me CB was back before the weekend, but there's still no sign of him, so it looks like life might have intervened again. In case you haven't been following this, I'm the busybody who took it upon myself to organise Round 3 in CB's absence.

Incidentally, should an official update from CB appear, that takes precedence, and changes everything below this line to whatever CB says. As we're just at the confirmation stage though, I can't see any problem with starting that now.

I'm sending out a confirmation pm to everyone on the list below. If you could reply to it, that'd be appreciated (indeed, it's necessary if you want to play in Round 3 :) ). Once we have the confirmations, we can set up the boards. I hesitate to put a deadline on this, but let's say 19 Sep @ 12:00 GMT (I'll be chasing people well before that!) - [WHS has said assignments will be out by the end of 17/09 (Pacific Time), so confirmation will be closing very soon]. We have some standbys to make up the numbers, should that be required. If you think you've signed up and aren't on the list/haven't received a pm, please pm me and we'll work it out.

Format
  • This will be a normal round, as with Rounds 1 & 2. I.e. no consolation bracket, just a normal free-for-all.
  • Given that Germany is our (by many metrics) tournament leader, the old AIG Central Powers rule (having to play AIG only once in the first 3 rounds) has been relaxed to cover just AI.
  • You shouldn't be playing the same power twice: should this occur though, unless it's AI, it's a case of suck it up Susan. Given the results by country (see below), it's not going to be detrimental. If you are down to play Austria or Italy for the second time, contact WHS immediately, as this will likely result in the countries on your board being reallocated.
  • Ongoing games. The current tournament results do feed into the Bromley seeding (no idea what the CB seeding was like, but take it from me the Bromley seeding is ace), but they're not the only factor. We currently have 2 ongoing games. I could mess around guesstimating the results, but that'd require me to ask people who they are in which game (which I've avoided doing). So we'll ignore these results for the Round 3 seeding. This is not going to have a significant impact.
  • I've crunched the numbers, but WHS will allocate 100% of the countries. He'll also allocate me to my board, so I (a) won't know which board I'm on, and (b) won't know which countries players have been allocated. I think this is 99.75% safe, but if you have a concern, pm me (or WHS).

Signup status
CLOSED. 75 accept, 4 decline, 5 o/s. Eleven boards at the moment (although we'll need to bus in a couple of standbys).

Thanks guys. We're progressing nicely with the confirmations - 47 out of 84, with only one withdrawal so far.

EDIT: 69 accept, 3 decline, 12 o/s. Ten boards at the moment!

I feel I can't reply to sinny without getting into trouble, so . . .

@gsmx. One of our soloists hasn't been in contact, so the field might be opening up :) .

EDIT: Bad news, he's confirmed :D .

Looks like things are speeding up. WHS has said he's sending out the boards this weekend, which means confirmation will be closing PDQ.

Current situation is we have 10 4/7 boards filled (but not allocated).

There are 6 players who signed up for Round 3 who haven't read or responded to the pm - I'm chasing. We have 4 standbys confirmed. So we'll have 11 boards.
