Markus Zijlstra, known online as Captain Meme, has been promoting the newest format for Diplomacy play, which is called Blitz Press.

After releasing videos on his Diplostrats YouTube channel explaining Blitz play, Markus just finished running a weekend tournament called Blitzcon, utilizing the vWDC Discord server for organization and WebDiplomacy as the platform.
