    I still can't believe its been 10 years since wc3diplo came online. I remember the day as if it were yesterday, Green and I chatting while I was getting my hands wrapped in crude and simple html from a PC at my community college library to build the first wc3diplo.org forum. The clans of diplo-based games were divided, each with their own forum and website. Virtual walls existed between people who had the same interests and played the same games. This was the status quo until a motley crew of gamers came together to lay the first stones of diplomatic union in what became wc3diplo, and what later evolved into Diplomunion.

    We aim to celebrate this momentous occasion with the 10 year anniversary gaming event. The event will begin on March 2nd and will end on March 7th, Diplo's 10th birthday. THERE WILL BE GAME GIVEAWAYS! The schedule of games we have lined up are:

    March 2nd (Thursday) - Warcraft 3
    March 3rd (Friday) - Starcraft 2
    March 4th (Saturday) - Warhammer Total War
    Game leader: Wolf
    March 5th (Sunday) - Company of Heroes 2
    Game leader: The_Phalanx
    March 6th (Monday) - Age of Empires 3
    Game leaders: ABDeL RorzNZ
    March 7th (Tuesday) - Warcraft 3
    Game leader: Techoff

    We will need game leaders for the two main timezones of Diplo: CET and EST. Please sign up in this thread to be a game leader for any of the selected games. If you can stream your games, please say so in this thread as well.

    When it comes to Warcraft 3 and Starcraft 2, you may recommend custom games to play in this thread as well.

    Thanks, and here's to another 10 years of connecting gamers. Cheers.

    UPDATE:
    Hey everyone, quick update:

    Company of heroes 2 is currently ONLY $5 ON STEAM: http://store.steampowered.com/app/231430/
    Total War: Warhammer can be purchased for ONLY $12 ON HUMBLE BUNDLE: https://www.humblebundle.com/monthly


    On the advice of other Diploers, you can definitely sign up for the monthly bundle just for warhammer, and cancel afterwards.

    If you plan on playing these games, there has never been a better time than now, especially to play in the gaming events.


    We'll also be giving away free games during the event. Here is how it works:

    Every day you show up in the discord and play games with us, you get 1 ticket. At the end of the event, all the tickets will go into a hat. CNiper , ABDeL, and Inferous will live stream the winners. We have a pretty big game list, so it should be exciting!

    In addition to that, if you invite a friend who plays a game with us during one of the event days on discord, and they sign up on the Diplo forums, they will automatically get a free game just for showing up and being new!

    Make sure you get coh2. It's only 10 for the full collection but if you're strapped you can get basic edition for 5. Only problem wit basic is that it's two factions.

    For wc3, I am strictly against ISH. I think any diplo games we play should have teams set so losers aren't waiting for games to end for too long. So for example, if we play Europa, we can 6v6, 5v5 or 4v4 depending on how many people we have.
