Welcome to toprate1!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This will be the first in (hopefully) a series of games designed to bring
the highly rated players of the PBEM Diplomacy hobby together.  As a small
go, it is a chance for strong players to play each other and not win just
because they happened to be next to some fluff.

On a grander scheme of things, I hope to raise the importance of the
ratings system and therefore people's respect for the implicit goals
contained therein.  It is nice and everything to say that you must play
for a solo and that a second-place loss gets you nothing.  It is much more
effective when it can be said, "look, in the fairly important rating
system, your attempt to play like an idiot is not going to get you
anything"

I also expect that some people may want to observe a game between 7
qualified people, and I also expect that the game might be fun, but those
are secondary considerations :)

Best of luck to all the players.
