DipCon Committee notes on Carnage: Carnage is a long-running and stable tournament site, with a good history and no issues with rule-sets or tournament structure. It is also part of a larger gaming tournament. The only area of concern to the Committee is that the event site is a hotel that commonly sells out well in advance of the event, and alternate hotels can be a significant distance away. To address this concern, the Carnage Diplomacy staff assures us that there are generally enough cancellations to allow late booking, and that they have a number of other strategies for guaranteeing space for travelers, including extra reserved rooms and/or a rental house within walking distance of the site.
