Thank you maafi for the handling.

Well played slackbetter, nice win on the April '19 D12 game!

Cool that the next D12 game is already in the pipeline, very smooth!

I'm surprised how much the required rating to be top9 has risen for this edition :o

>3602 to be top 9, whereas the edition before needed just >3349 and the one before >3327. August '18 was the last time that >3500 was required to be top9, with a peak (in recorded history) of >4273 for February '16: https://dominating12.com/tutorial/thedominating12/2016-02-26%2015:14:17
I'll take it that the main reason (this time) lies in the fact that there are 2 'returning' players in the form of Jonathon & Deepdaleduck who didn't make the list the previous time, due to not having played 5 games over the 15 days before publishing, yet have the right rating, so with 5+ games in, they take a sure spot =)

Good luck & fun everyone who's going to compete in the new D12 game and/or just (casually) playing on the website.

D12 list will be published tomorrow.
From now on I will attempt to publish a new list and get the D12 game started and finished every month.
I'm going to standardise the set-up of the D12 games to make it quicker to organise. We will use all of the 9p maps in alphabetical order, so:
Atlantis, Baltic Sea, Italia, NYC, Texas, Westeros, World Double, World Ex, World Inverted (and repeat)
also, the set-up will vary each time in this order:
DM, Assassination, DM, Caps, DM, Domination, DM etc
If a set-up doesn't work well with a particular map, we'll skip that set-up and move to DM.
Feedback always welcome.

21 May, 18:00:12 Game started.
21 Jun, 20:48:36 Game finished.


You've got it right on the money maafi! Game lasted exactly a month =)
It was very exciting to play in this game. The expectations on who would take the title home probably shifted with just about every turn played... depending on whether someone would have a lucky 3 card set, get stuck on 5 cards, fail on a(n easy) elimination, or just anything else. There weren't any turns that made me lift my eyebrows in dismay, just some that made me admire the ingenuity of the player who executed them; very well played by everyone. Thanks for the wishes and hopefully cya all soon in the next!

//Confession: I actually took pen and paper to do some math/draw out my plan/route before starting that last turn - never done that before in any game.

New D12 list: https://dominating12.com/tutorial/thedominating12
Congratulations to all those who made it.
The D12 game will be caps played on the NYC map. I’ll send out a message to the first 9 and it’ll open up to 10-12 if any of the 9 don’t play.

It's a bug. I'll get to fixing it at some point :pirate:
