We've got onto a potential 9th board for ODC IV now - not too shabby! A bit lower than the last two (thanks, Yonni) but still a couple of weeks to go for sign-ups - so get in there!

Wasn't trying to shame this one at all! Bigger isn't always better. These have all been massively impressive tournaments - kudos to everyone who's taken the time to organize them.

Didn't think you were, Yonni. I meant thanks for putting these stats together - I made use of them :-D

Was interested in joining the tournament, how long are the phase lengths?

We're currently on 61 entrants - 2 away from 9 boards...um, obviously. I just like to prove I can do the maths.

So head on over to Playdip, register is you need to - it's free and the tournament is free to enter - and then go to the Forum and sign-up.

If the link doesn't work the sub-forum I've long asked for has finally been created - I'll post a new link.

Also, I've created a poll on whether the games should be fully anonymous - don't know who's in the game - or partially - you know who you're playing against but not which power they're playing.

And, for those of you new to Playdip's interface, I will be posting a guide to make sure there are as few errors as possible with misorders. A few things are different between here and there. I know there's the idea of "home advantage" but, well, I'd rather see a fully competitive tournament for something like this!

I've now sent out confirmation PMs on Playdip to everyone who is signed-up for ODC IV and started the list of confirmed entrants.

Still taking sign-ups - and we've just hit 9 boards. If you sign-up this week, you're automatically assumed to be confirming your participation.

The deadline to sign-up is Sunday 27 March and that, coincidentally, is the deadline to confirm by, too! Who'd'a thunk it?

10 boards? Why not?

OK, well, there are about 2/3 of the people who signed-up to the ODC who have confirmed participation. So if you're one of the people who hasn't, you need to do so!

The deadline to confirm by is now 31 March. Go to the Forum, open your PMs and respond to the PM I've sent. If you don't confirm, you're not in.

(If you haven't had a PM, then you signed-up recently and you don't need one :-D )

Still time to sign-up, too, and if you do now, you'll be won't need to confirm. This late in the day, I'm assuming confirmation. Again, 31 March deadline.

Hey all! If you're playing ODC you should check your PlayDip PMs, I need confirmations that people are continuing by tomorrow at the latest.
