Locked the other topic for you, since people aren't always good listeners. If you need it unlocked give me a ping.

I'd also suggest putting a link to here at the bottom, so people know where to discuss.

Not sure what you mean. Strategus For the final? yes anon.
It can be anonymous countries as well but someone would have to be a gatekeeper if there is password etc.. if a non-classicist slips in then the winner can petition the judges for approval.

Judges are Dib & Strategus

Open a results reporting post? Or I can unlock it if you'd prefer, but I'd be a bit surprised if you don't get people posting queries in there.

Oh, and I did have a comment--might be worth clarifying this line:

Balance and play tested Variants will count but only if they are classicist only players (strict)


Does that mean only strict Classicist games (bronze and up) will count, or that you'll be strict about games only containing Classicists (including aspiring)?

In terms of the aspiring classicist thing I dont mind.

does the aspiring thing encourage the classicist ? If it does i guess we should allow

What do you think Nanook?

What I am trying to avoid is that results are plagued by NMR and newbie players who drop out... hence was thinking bronze

But if someone is on 4 games etc,,,, on the other hand, they shouldn't be excluded - so probably aspiring is fine - i guess there was some issue with folks waiting long time to be admitted this year.

So yes aspiring I will amend

Personally, I’d say let it be any classicist game, strict or casual, as long as it’s all classicists of some sort. At least anecdotally, bronze + classicists are about as likely as aspiring to NMR or surrender (not sure what the actual numbers on that are though!). I think as long as it’s a classicist game, it should be fine.

I’d also maybe be a bit clearer about what variants you’re including here. Is it any variant as long as it’s a classicist game, or only those you’re deeming “balanced”?

How do I determine which of my games (if any) are Classicists? :shock:
