World Baseball Classic 44- Signup Thread! (CLOSED!!)

Postby Cassadaigua » Sat Sep 01, 2018 6:29 am


It’s time for baseball once again! After an exciting tournament that saw 75 nations signup and a thrilling playoff tournament in Cassadaigua that had some surprises even though an old standby walked away with the title.

Now, we move on to the 44th World Baseball Classic. What amazing moments will this one have in store?

This is the signup thread. If you have done this before, or have done other major competitions on NS Sports before but not the World Baseball Classic before, you know what you need to do for now. If this is your first time, then let me first welcome you to the competition. Right now, all you need to do is declare that your nation signs up, and then keep an eye on this thread as the sign up process progresses. The process will eventually lead to a host vote, and once we have a host, that nation will put out a schedule and lead us through the competition.

In order to be considered as a host, you must submit a bid. On NS Sports, the host is responsible for the day to day running of the tournament, which includes being able to reliably scorinate the competition. The World Baseball Classic is often the second most roleplayed competition on the entire forum, behind the World Cup. Therefore, it is typically a competition that requires an experienced host. There are great competitions out there for first time hosts to get their feet wet, but like the World Cup, the World Baseball Classic is not really one of them. Having said that, there is absolutely no restrictions on a first time host submitting a bid.

Here are examples of the last three winning bids to use as reference:
Winning WBC 43 bid (Cassadaigua)
Winning WBC 42 bid (Free Republics)
Winning WBC 41 bid (Equestrian States)

A valid WBC bid must include, at the absolute minimum, how you plan on structuring the tournament and the method of scorination. If it does not, at minimum, include that, it will not be considered for voting.

Voting on WBC host bids is done by members of the World Baseball Classic Council. The members of the council of are listed here

HOST BID DEADLINE: Saturday, September 15th at 8pm EDT.

Projected Timeline: World Baseball Classic 44 will not conflict with World Cup 81 QUALIFYING as long as WC 81 operates at or close to its planned schedule. It will likely conflict with World Cup proper and the Cup of Harmony. However, the tournament signups are opened now to try and be in line with real life MLB post-season.

This post also is considered the signup for Cassadaigua. If you want to play too, whether its your first time or you have done this many times, signup now!
