SAVE THE DATE!

The 2021 edition of the Windy City Weasel’s signature tournament will be held virtually! All games will be played online using Backstabbr and live streamed on the Diplomacy Broadcast Network. More details will be released soon so stay tuned!

Please Note: All times CDT. Check back for additional details closer to the event. 

Scoring

Weasel Moot XV will be played using the Open Tribute scoring system. This system has been used in the Virtual Diplomacy League, but Weasel Moot will be the first North American Diplomacy Federation (NADF) tournament to use this scoring system. The incentives in Open Tribute scoring can be summarized as “top the board if possible, with as many supply centers as possible, otherwise survive and keep the board-topper as small as possible.”

  1. Watch the Legendary Tactics Diplomacy Tournament Guide for an overview of what to expect. 
  2. Download and install the Discord app. Installing the app is required as it helps avoid many audio issues. 
  3. Join the VWDC Discord channel, introduce yourself, test switching between voice channels, and test out your microphone. Get to know your competition, they are a welcoming community!
  4. Familiarize yourself with Backstabbr. Pay special attention to convoys, supports, and territories with multiple coasts. The interface is pretty easy to use but can sometimes trip people up. Chris Martin’s Diplomacy Academy video helps explain Backstabbr pretty well. 
  5. If you are new to the game of Diplomacy, welcome! Windy City Weasel Jorge Zhang has created a Diplomacy Resources website with some great resources for newer players to help get them started from a strategic standpoint. Also, feel free to ask questions or for advice in Discord!
