Diplomacy Broadcast Network Invitational

Established in 2020, the Diplomacy Broadcast Network (DBN) Invitational is a year-long points competition between players in both the face-to-face and extended-deadline Diplomacy communities, culminating with the DBN Invitational Championship game in February. Players vie to become the DBN Invitational Champion, which distinguishes the one player who not only performs well at DBN qualifying events, but also excels through the pressure of the DBN Invitational Tournament itself.
