As Ted reported in an earlier thread, the Internet 1989 League is about to begin its fourth season of competition. The start of the league has been delayed until November 11, so there is still time to sign up if you'd like to join us!

The league features real time play using the program available at www.wargameroom.com. Games are timed so that they will last a maximum of 2 1/2 hours (1 hour 15 minutes per player). Players are asked to stay on or ahead of a schedule of one game every two weeks.

I know we had at least one European player post that he was concerned about the time zone difference being a barrier. First, the league is international in nature; in fact the league champion has come from Europe all three times. Second, there is a league mechanic called a Deadline Event designed to assist people who are having difficulty meeting their scheduled opponents. Details can be found at www.wargameroom.com/matchup.htm, but the bottom line is that can choose a time to play that is convenient for you, so long as you announce it to the league in advance. Even if no one shows up to play, you are given credit for a game played so long as you do this.

If you're on the fence, give it a try. There are no hard feelings if you wind up dropping if it's not for you. Please make sure you have successfully used the Wargameroom program before joining though.

Anyway, if all this sounds like fun, and you'd like to join in, send me an e-mail at brucewig@hotmail.com and I'll put you on the list.

Beginning the tournament on Nov. 11 would make more sense if it were PoG.

Nice to see that league already started and few games are played ( no results reported yet but this would happen latter I assume ).

Good luck to all other players and have fun !
