Travelling to Sarzonia was a downright bizarre experience for Katakin Maier's team. Housed in a mostly empty hotel and effectively isolated from the native population that had been riled up against them by their government's over-reaction to the comments of Samuel Izmailov, they felt like prisoners ...

For the third time in this World Cup, the Republican National Team entered La Gran Avenida with an army of their fans. This time around, they faced a defensive-minded Ko-oren team and the Dragonflies would set the pace of the match. The match remained scoreless for over 70 minutes. When Faith Marsha...

Continued A year ago, the Free Republics had defeated Drawkland's Grid Crops 65-39 in the highest scoring World Bowl championship game in history. The dominant performance by Dania Sandberg followed a World Bowl where the Republican offense had disappeared for games at a time. The Free Republics ha...

The biggest thing that jumps out to me from those graphs is that style mods change the outcomes (win/lose/draw). The scorinators we currently use for international competition do not do this because they first score a result and then use style mods to add/remove goals from both teams after the fact....

Once again, the Republicans marched through the forest to La Gran Avenida heavily armed and singing patriotic songs en route to the stadium. The opponent this time was Sarzonia, a nation that seemed to be run by individuals who were every bit as hot-headed as Senator Izmailov. Theriault's connection...

It should work. Please let me know if you are still denied access, in that case I can upload it to another site.

So I just made a post, and I have the bye next match day. Does that post count towards MD4 or MD5? Can I put in another post after MD4 is posted and both posts are added to my cumulative score or only one? Posts are counted for the matchday you post it in; whether or not you have a match is irrelev...

The Republicans had been defeated against Banija but their focus had been on beating Sarzonia regardless. They had hoped to keep it closer than a 2 goal defeat though. Now, they were even on goal difference with Banija and behind in head to head points which meant that Banija and Sarzonia would adva...

I don't see the need to restrict WC hosts from participating in the CoH vote relating to a Vilitan Plan bid. For those CoH votes, I think there should be a very strong presumption in favor of the 2 CoH hosts from the WC bid and that you should only vote against their hosting the CoH if there are ser...

Since it looks like the World Bowl has a good chance of starting before the FFR is eliminated from the World Cup then there's no real IC justification for not signing up for it.
