36 participants invited by private message. Highest ratings only.

The idea of this is to play classic Risk on our 42-territory maps, with 6 players per game.
The 6 winners of the 6 games access to the final game.
The final winner is electeded the King!

The tournament is pretty simple, 7 games in all, with single elimination, i.e. who loses the first game is out, who wins goes to the final; 6 players in each game, classic increasing death-matches, on maps with 42-44 territories.
Chained fortification.

Not so fast because it is in 2 rounds, but a low business because it's only 1 game at a time for each player.

Tor map and Solar System are also included, but they are not shown in the graphics.
The six rating leaders play in different games and they can decide the maps.
Every game on a different map to promote the map variety.

In the early editions there was a weird selecting parameter called 'beta-predominance' which was finally rejected, you can read about it here. Now is only based on normal rating, and of course you have to be in the D12 list in order to prove your rating.

what are the qualifications for this one?
The 36 top players in the D12 list. Someone will refuse so I'll probably invite people up to #50.
Rockbert, you'll receive almost certainly the invite by private message.

I don't think we can see it. Maybe you are saying eventually we will be able to see it.

Contestants:
@coco, @KaiserKnud, @ENGELBREKT, @clarkenfeld, @dough_boy, @God_of_War, @DukeOfWellington, @Abs, @kramerq, @Beav14, @simomosi, @General_Ender, @jfults, @gameplayer, @richierich, @periwinkle, @slackbatter, @sfclimbers, @JCaesar69, @Irob, @The_Bishop... Waiting for 15 more, I'm extending the invitation to the top 45 in the D12 list.

Forgot to mention: every game on a different map to promote variety. The top 6 in rating decide the maps they want to play. New Zealand and Tor are taken from Slack and Peri. I'm not sure who's #3, s/he will have to choose one of this: Solar System, United States, West Indies, Falkland Islands, Switzerland or Balkan Peninsula.
