World Cup 63 Signups (football/soccer, CLOSED)

Postby NSWC Signups » Fri Nov 16, 2012 6:30 am

Signups are now closed at 182 teams. Any further entries will go on a wait list to potentially replace CTEd teams.

The longest-running sports competition in NationStates reaches its sixty-third edition: the Football/Soccer World Cup.

If you've been involved before, for any of the 62 previous occasions, and know the drill, carry on past all this and sign up like usual, since this is basically a copy of previous sign-up posts. Don't know the drill? Aren't aware there even is a drill? Read on...

Signing Up:
New to the World Cup? Read This
Welcome to the longest-running sports competition in NationStates!

If you're completely new here, you are eligible to enter the Baptism of Fire (BoF) Cup, a tournament that happens before the World Cup, along with the World Cup itself. If this is your first Cup, please indicate whether you wish to be registered for the Baptism of Fire or not. After all, you only participate in a competition if you ask to be included in it, so make it clear in your post if you want to join the BoF if you're a first-timer.

It is highly advised that you enter the BoF when you sign a nation up for the World Cup for the first time. This will give you an opportunity to RP in an official WCC event with other newcomers and also give you your first ranking points.


All you have to do is say "<nation> signs up" (and specify which tournaments). You can make it more polite or impressive than that, of course, or even RP the sign-up, but that, simply, is all that is required.

If this is your first Cup, you may only sign up with one nation. A second nation, known as a 'puppet', may be signed up in later tournaments. Puppets need to declare their status as a puppet, as well as be confirmed as such by the 'master' nation.

First time participants are ineligible to host or co-host the World Cup and Baptism of Fire tournaments.

Introducing: The World Cup
The Nationstates World Cup (NSWC) is a tournament for any NS nation who signs up. The NSWC is about to start its next competition, and your nation can take part! Every team is given a rank based on their performances in previous Cups, and the starting rank is roughly 300 (the current "best team in the world" is Valanora, with a rank of 1) See: KPB Rankings

Scores are generated using 'scorinators' - usually either a Java program, an MS Excel (or similar) spreadsheet, or another custom-made program - which use random numbers, weighted by ranking and RP bonus to produce the scores.

It is encouraged for Nations to RP - roleplay - their matches, team rosters, players and such. Good RPs will help raise your chance of winning (especially in the Baptism of Fire, the tournament for NSWC newcomers). Please note: A lot of RPs does not guarantee goals or wins, but your chances are improved of this happening. i.e. Two debutant, non-ranked, nations play each other. One has RP'd a few times, the other has not. The nation who has participated should have the better probability of victory, but still has a chance of a Win, Loss or Draw.

RPs can be team roster announcements, fan comments, press conferences, media stories, anything about the game, or even other situations, as long as you've kept to the score as posted by the host(s).

For more information on the World Cup, its long history, how it works, who runs it, and the competitions related to it, check out the World Cup NSwiki page

Then ask us in the World Cup Discussion Thread
There are plenty of knowledgeable people on hand in that thread to answer anything you might like to know about the NSWC.


Please do not post in this thread to answer questions about sign-ups or to correct sign-ups unless you are the WCC president, WCC vice-president, a former WC host, or the current World Cup or Baptism of Fire hosts. If you are not one of the latter and post a query reply or correction, your post will be considered spam, and may bring moderator action.
