I am liking the added variety that is coming out of NS Sports. I have never been into Football which is the most popular. So its good that sports like Water Polo and Archery have popped up.

Nothing wrong to be small to start off with, Rome wasn't built in a day. And with the Olympics around the corner, hopefully it will vett some interest. Would be good to have some year round sports instead of waiting for the Olympics. People just need to stick it out.

And Water Polo is a great way to get your foot in the door for new rp also. Being new its not dominated by old timers who have cemented the top ranks spots due to regular participation. Its anyone's game with some good roleplays at just a small commitment of a few minutes a day.

Hello -
With the second WPIC almost done, I'd like to announce the Baptism of Water (yes, BOW) will be held three months from now-ish, sign-ups will open October to be held in (late) November while the WPIC will be held in December.
Secondly, the end WPIC 2 begins my third and finally cycle in office unless I seek re-election, I'd like to announce I'll stick with my current Vice President, Aclion, however, I will be making moves to grow the IWPF and the WPIC over the next few months leading up. An international domestic water-polo league thread may be launched in the coming months, however, these are simply speculations.
Finally, if you're interested in running for president of the IWPF (the elections will be held at the time of sign-ups for WPIC 3, the President-elect will take office at the end of WPIC 3), fill out the application:
    Code: Select all
    [b]Name of Nation (IC):[/b]
    [b]Name of Representative (IC):[/b]
    [b]Why you want to be President:[/b]
    [b]Plans for your term:[/b]
    [b]IC Achievements in NS:[/b]
    [b]Link to sportswire:[/b]
Good luck, applications will close upon the opening of the WPIC 3 sign-up thread.

~ President Kep

EDIT: Sign-ups closed.

The form -
Is below:
Name of Nation (IC): The Nordic Republic of Kebec
Name of Representative (IC): Mr. Dean Xandra
Why you want to be President: Seeking second term of office, I started the Water Polo International Championship and am the original founder of the IWPF, I want to be President to continue to grow the organisation, seeking to add more depth to it and make it more recognized among the NS sporting community.
Plans for your term: My goal if elected is to have the Baptism of Water up-and-running and eventually get the WPIC to 32 games so we can add a qualification-stage and make the tournament more WC-esqe. Seeking to grow water polo to new heights within NS Sports, possibly adding a junior water polo tourney and considering adding international water polo club newswire and club championships by WPIC 6.
IC Achievements in NS: Haha, no.

Name of Nation (IC): (The United States) Darkmania
Name of Representative (IC): Rübens Dërmerns
Why you want to be President:
OOC: Never had become one so I'll join the race and make water polo great again! DRAIN THE POOL. LOCK THE GOAL UP.
IC: "Water polo is a passion in Darkmania. We may have flopped hard on it, but just like the "Vannløvene" (Norwegian for "Waterlions"), we will never give up. We will be bringing passion to our Federation and bring more nations together under one dream. To be the best. Because all of us want to be the best in somethingm

Plans for your term:
  • Making of "IWPF Champions League", based on UEFA Champions League, but with water-polo teams instead of football/ soccer teams.
  • Advertice IWPF on the NS-Discord.
  • Minor changes to the Dispatches, mostly just adding the [nation]-code in it.
  • Let the national WP- organizations voice their matters in cases.
IC Achievements in NS: Sportcchivemetns are recorded here (not all are added in, but I will add them as soon as possible). Non-Sports Achievements includes two third place in World Hit Festival (song contest) and a win in JWHF (also a song contest).

A host bid for both the WPIC and BoW.

For the record, I still question the necessity of a "Baptism"-type event for this tournament since the participant pool is so small and we found that the Baptism of Iron was basically a waste of time in the World Bowl, which is still a much larger and more established event than this one.

Are the rankings from each Water Polo Championship added together or is each season counted as a brand new ranking?
