MODS: I know this looks like a textbook gravedig, but there was some signs of life buried underneath there, and I had to see what was up. Seriously, knowing this was there, somewhere, it was the best place to ask the question below instead of starting another thread. So please understand! ;)


As you can see from the time this thread was created, we haven't played lacrosse in a while. Is there any interest in starting WLC 6 after the World Cup? (or maybe a little afterwards)

I'd be too busy hosting the next Oxen Cup and the World Bowl (and possibly competing in the next WBC/WCOH whichever one seems more appropriate)

I concur with the above several posts.
WINNER of the 1st International Basketball Championships, 7th Di Bradini Cup, & the 4th World Lacrosse Championships!
RUNNERUP in Baptism of Fire 30 and World Baseball Classic 10.
HOST of World Bowl 6, International Basketball Championships 6, and Baptism of Iron 6. (Hosting a 6th version of something? Call us.) Also, World Baseball Classic 12 and World Lacrosse Championships 3.
Qualified for World Cups 49-52.

All arrogant, stuck-up, conceded or whatever comments I make in roleplay are always in-character and should not be interpreted as also being the out-of-character attitude of the person controlling the nation. My nation is my attempt to mock people I have to deal with often at work.

Scorination for all matches will be in the range of 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. EDT starting tonight.

I'll scorinate the group stage Monday through Saturday, then will give everyone Sunday off because 1) I like having a little bit of time between the group stage and the knockouts, 2) the NFL's conference championship games are this coming Sunday and 3) the University of Maryland's blizzard-cancelled graduation was re-scheduled for the 24th. I'm not graduating, but some folks who worked with me might be.

At least initially, my plan is to scorinate the two quarterfinals matches on Monday, followed by scorinating the two semifinals matches on Tuesday. The third place playoff would then be Wednesday and the final itself would be Thursday. If there's a delay, that schedule would be pushed back.

FYI to Qazox: I got my $35 million figure from looking up the cost to build Columbus Crew Stadium, which I used as sort of the "spirtual inspiration" behind the new facility my car company is offering to build.

As far as calling it Estrella Motor Cars Field is concerned, it'd be nice, but not necessary. Unless you want a name that more accurately identifies with the country offering to foot the bill for your new stadium. ;)

I'll be away this weekend so I won't be able to RP again before the playoffs. Sorry in advance to my opponents.

Tonight's RP cut off will be back on the schedule of the first two days. Friday's will probably be the same time. Saturday's will be late (like probably early morning hours Sunday).

Sunday is still going to be an off day no matter what happens.

Sarzonia, you're doing a great job...but Shavelle has been credited with too many GA. They actually have given up 10 less than what's shown. The error came when they were charged with 30 goals against from the Qazox game.

But I did score 30 goals that game!!! Just most of them didn't count.

HOST ANNOUNCEMENT:

I'm actually taking a class on Mondays that starts tonight. Thus, the scorination of the quarterfinals will be at approximately 10:30 p.m. EST tonight.

The RP cutoff will happen then as well.

Pos  Team                       W   L   Pct.  GF   GA   GD 
1 Vedacia 4 2 .667 71 71 0
2 Cassadaigua 4 2 .667 78 74 4
3 San Giorgio a Cremano 3 3 .500 76 69 7
4 Taeshan 1 5 .167 71 80 -9


Sarz, I started to RP my game but stopped because I'm not clear how Vedacia won this group. I really never looked at the group until now, but Cassadaigua beat out Vedacia on overall GD, and they split H2H results with Cassadaigua having the better GD in those meetings. Everything points to Cassadaigua winning the tiebreaker that I can see.

I think I had that originally with a three-way tie. However, since it's a two-way tie, Cassadaigua should be the division winner. My mistake.

I'll do a re-sim of that quarterfinal fixture with Newmanistan facing Cassadaigua. My sincere apologies.

Can I have a day, then? You don't have too.

But if I'm playing Cassadaigua me RPing is more important then me otherwise thinking I could coast over Vedacia. Cass may feel the same way.
(Never minds the re-sim :p )

Absolutely. I'll give you both an extra day.

The semifinal will then be knocked back to Wednesday, then the third place fixture will be Thursday with the final on Friday.

GOD DAMNIT, there's no one I can fire for that except myself! Minus RP points for Dancougar. Or wait, maybe I can blame the guy in the social security office?

"Oh, well his given name is Michael, but there are those who call him... Tim?"

Anyway, corrected in the RP.

Also, because I'm going to be out of town until Sunday, so RP silence should be expected regardless of the outcome of the final, at least until I'm home.

Perhaps his given name is Michael Timothy and he just decided to go by Tim?

I'm not going to dock you any RP points for the mistake. Hell, I've made my fair share in this tournament.
