World Lacrosse Championships 26 [SIGN-UPS, CLOSED]

Postby World Lacrosse Championships » Fri Dec 16, 2016 7:41 pm

Welcome to the twenty-sixth edition of
the World Lacrosse Championships!


Image


NationStates' longest-running premier international lacrosse championship is back. Throughout its storied history of 25 editions, thirteen different nations have conquered the world to lift the most sought-after trophy in the sport, bringing pride to their nations and creating their own legacies. Abanhfleft are the defending WLC champions, and have won three of the past four editions. Will they continue their dynasty, or could your nation be the one to break it up?

Post here to sign up for the tournament or bid to become host. Being a traditionally smaller competition, the WLC is a great tournament for newer hosts, but some experience with scorination and RPing on this forum is highly encouraged.

Qad Lacrosse Presents a Bid For.....
Image

Your Qasden

The Principality of Qasden is a sport-loving metropolis located in the southwestern portion of Atlantian Oceania. Under the authorities of Prince Franz-Pierre and PM Rees Häther, who govern from the capital, Turkish Van City (better known as T.V. City), the 'pality maintains relatively well relations with fellow regional nations. The economy is mostly entertainment and tourism-driven, while information and hospitality come close behind.

Citizens of Qasden enjoy frolicking amongst the streets of cities such as T.V. City, Port Harston, Taxson, Qad City, and so on. When it comes to sports, however, things start to get real. Nearly every Qasdonian plays or enthusiastically watches some form of sport, with athletic programs such as Association Football, Basketball, and Tennis leading the nation in popularity. The 'pality is home to many wonderful venues, such as the Royal T.V. Stadium, an all-around mecca for Qad sports, located in the heart of T.V. City. Citizens enjoy these friendly competitions in an almost eternal spring-like weather, with glorious rainy days and gloomy sunny days making up the usual forecasts. Certain places in Qasden, like the mountainous southwestern cities of Fyre and Destiny, experience more of an early spring and autumn pattern, with snow falling at least once every other month. Trains and planes are the best ways to travel between each of the venues, and stray cats on public vehicles are heavily common (so be aware of that, people with cat allergies).

Experience

Prior to the beginning of summer 2016, the user behind Qasden had strolled around NS for a year and a half, blindly unknown of the world of forums. After finally discovering it, he created the 'pality to avoid prejudice in his main country's no-forum region. After working with scorinators a bit and researched some of NSS's past events, Qasden finally said "screw it" and began his scorinating career just a few weeks after discovering NS Sports.

First there was the Qasden Open, a small and easily forgettable archery tournament that became inspiration to the development of NSAO, or the NationStates Archery Open. After a few association football friendlies here and there, Qasden co-hosted the fifth Maple Leaf Bowl, a Canadian football tournament, alongside Kep (now known as Kebec). Afterwards, not really any other tournaments were hosted in Qasden, other than maybe a few guest clubs for the domestic Prince's Cup soccer tournament. He did, however, scorinate games for Runner Cup 7 (for Falatulu), Northwestern Cup 2 (for Savalen), the Mercedinian Open (for Mercedini), and most recently, the IAC (for Bonesea), along with the already-discussed friendlies. This does not even mention the domestic leagues and tournaments of the Qailpyme Sporting Alliance.

Format

The proposed formats, should this bid be chosen somehow, goes as the following. The preferred minimum for signups, as we are currently sitting at 18, would be 20, with a preferred maximum of 40.
20 teams- 4 groups of 5, single RR, top 2 advance
24 teams- 6 groups of 4, double RR, top 2 + 4 best 3rd placers advance
28 teams- 7 groups of 4, double RR, top 2 + 2 best 3rd placers advance
30 teams- 6 groups of 5, single RR, top 2 + 4 best 3rd placers advance
32 teams- 8 groups of 4, double RR, top 2 advance
36 teams- 6 groups of 6, single RR, top 2 + 4 best 3rd placers advance
40 teams- 10 groups of 4, double RR, top 1 + 6 best runner ups advance


Playoffs will rank the group winners and runner ups seperately from greatest to least, then it's a single elimination 1v8/16 2v7/15 style knockout. As for my games, they will be scorinated by another user.


Scorinator
xkoranate's latest version of lacrosse will be utilized for this event.

RP Bonuses & Tiebreakers
Bonuses for posted rosters and RPs will be graded on a small scale, and can be accumulated throughout the group stage before being degraded 50% per each round of knockouts. Tiebreakers, should they need to be used, will go as followed—
    1. Points
    2. H2H
    4. Goal Difference
    3. Goals For
    5. Tiebreaker Game

Other Details
Should Qasden win hosting rights, the start of WLC26 would occur sometime in early January, for RL reasons. 3rd place playoff and such will also be included.

Questions, Comments, and Concerns
If you have any of the above for the host, feel free to speak them via the thread or tg. We are completely open to buisness sponsorships, as well, and the like. Cheers!

EDIT: Extended period of some group stage formats (some to double RR)
