Introduction

The DCI, or Diplomaticcorp Invitational is a small, two-round tournament that was established in 2006 by Stephen Lytton (Deathblade_penguin).


The idea was to invite the top players to a game of Diplomacy - where the best of the best will face off.

Now in its 3rd year, the tournament has expanded. In 2008 there are 2 rounds consisting of 10 players. These players are some of the best, active and loyal players in diplomaticcorp dating back to the foundation of the club.

Invitations

The players are invited to play based on their game stats, including number of games, solos, percentages of solos, number of draws, percentage of draws, seconds, NMRs and of course Civil Disorders. There is also a provision to include some member choices, as well inviting the winner of the Winter Blitz, and the best "new player".


Current Round

The issues in 2007 to change of format for 2008. The 'traditional yet controversial' gunboat game was held first instead of second. 10 players have been invited for the 2008 DCI and these include:-

1) Winner of the 2008 Winter Blitz
2) Winner of the 2007 DCI
3) The top 6 'eligible' players as calculated by the DCI formula (see eligible players)
4) The best 'new' player (Top score Under 3 games completed in DC)
5) A Recomended Player as agreed by the 3 moderators

The top 7 of these players will then move on to the second standard game.

The DCI Scoring System
Each Player who has completed a game in DC, is placed on the DCI spreadsheet.
They are then given a score calculated by the following formula:-

a) A base score for the number of games played (2 points for the first 5 games, 1 point for the second 5 games then .5 per game played)
b) a score for the result acheived in the first and second games played in DC. (20 points for a solo, 10 points for a draw, 5 points for a survivial and 1 point for an elimination)
c) 10 points per Solo
d) a bonus for the percentage of games soloed (20 points for top 75%, 15 points for 50-75%, 10 points for 25-50% and 5 points for 1-25%)
e) 2 points per draw scored
f) a bonus for the percentage of games drawn (20 points for top 75%, 15 points for 50-75%, 10 points for 25-50% and 5 points for 1-25%)
g) 1 point per second scored
h) 3 points for a replacment position taken (after May 20th, 2008)
i) Negative 1 points for every 4 NMR/NBR/NDR or NRR scored.
j) Negative 1 point for every 2 games Civil Disorder.

To be eligible to play in the current year's DCI the player must:-

i) have completed at least one game in DC in the past year OR be known to be active.
ii) have not CD or abandoned their most recent game without good cause
iii) have completed at least 3 games in DC (unless qualifying as best new player)
iv) not be suffering a penalty from previous year's DCI (such as not completing a game)
