World Cup of Hockey XL : Royal Kingdom of Quebec

Introduction

After little thought and even less consideration, the Royal Kingdom of Quebec present their bid to host the 40th World Cup of Hockey.

OOC Information

Royal Kingdom of Québec has hosted or co-hosted the World Cup 73 and 77, World Bowl XXIV and XXVIII, World Cup of Hockey XXV, XVI, XXIX and XXX (the last one as Norrehavn), Baptism of Fire LVII and LXII, Cup of Harmony 64 and 68, International Basketball Championships 17-18 and 21. The user behind the nation was the inaugural president of the World Cup of Hockey Federation for 6 cycles (WCoHs 24-29) and a longtime member in many sporting committees, as well as formerly organising the NSCAA Ice Hockey Competitions. He also has hosted many seasons of domestic hockey and football leagues, and has been working on to scorinate a full front of 8 collegiate sport leagues on top of leagues in 6 pro sports.

IC Information

Located in Northwestern end of Calania region in AO, Royal Kingdom of Québec is a nation known for its environment, rich cultural diversity and claims one of its region's most educated and cultured population. Led by Her Imperial Majesty, Christine II, the country is a semi-constitutional monarchy, with both the royalty and the democracy playing a huge role in Quebecois politics. With a high HDI rating and affluent economy, Royal Kingdom of Québec is an advanced nation with long years of peace and stability within the nation, while still allowing for societal and economic progress over the course of its history. With a beautiful environment, advanced economy, state-of-art infrastructure and love of association football, Royal Kingdom of Québec is your place to go for your once-in-a-lifetime voyage that welcomes every traveler with smile and cheer.

Being located far northwest, hockey is an extremely popular sport here, being played in almost every part of and by almost everyone in the country. Quebec Hockey League currently is the most international and financially successful of all the hockey leagues on Multiverse. Its Junior and collegiate levels of hockey are extremely well followed, with many teams regularly recording +10,000 people in attendance for games. More IC information is available via TG upon signee's discretion.

Scorination

Scorination will be done in the latest version of xkoranate on the ice hockey function, using the the latest version of SQIS Modifiers with no Shootout option. Because of no shootout option being used, draws will be allowed for the course of group stage and overtimes for the playoffs. The range of permissible Style Modifiers will be from -5 to +5. As for the tabulation, I will be adhering to 2-1-0 point format with 2 points for the win, a point for the draw, and no point for a loss.

RPs will be scored on an unstated but generous scale, with the grading criteria based around on how creative and how well written they are, which means that the length of an RP isn't a be all and end all. RP bonus will serve as a significant factor in the scorination. They will be cumulative, all the way through. Rosters will also be graded and shall be equivalent to a matchday, with same criteria being used as the RPs. There will also be bonus RP opportunities (that you can ignore if you want) next to some of the scorinated matches, which many of you have already experienced through most competitions that Quebec has hosted.

Cutoff and Timeframe

If I'll ever be chosen as the host, the everything thread will be up as soon as possible, based on the host's personal availability. Based on the timeframe that we have set for the time being, the most likely date for MD1 scorination will be sometime in two weeks from now. All paticipants will be given at least a week to post before MD1 cutoff, with the groups to be drawn 2 days prior to the MD1 scorination. Exact cutoff time range for scorination will be released at the much later date, though it is very likely that it'll be around 23:00 (Seoul Time), especially as I expect to fly abroad shortly before MD1. If there's a need for any scorination changes by the host, the host concerned will announce it at least 24 hours before the intended scorination time.

Format

Right now, with the number of signups already reaching 48, it'd make lot more sense to adjust the format with the sheer demand we have here.

So, if elected, I'll cutoff the signup with a 56 team format, assuming that there is enough demand. These teams then, using pots, will be divided into 8 groups of 7 each. Under 56 team format, it would run on would be a double round robin stage, going home-and-away. With this format, top 2 teams per group will advance into the playoffs after qualifying stage, where then they'll be seeded using the tiebreakers seen below (which will also be used for breaking ties inside of groups). Group Champions will be awarded spots 1-8 with runner-ups 9-16. There will be reseeding during the playoffs.

In the even that the number 56 cannot be reached, alternate formats will of course be proposed. I would be flexible anywhere between 48 (current number of signups, with possible omission of puppets in future), 50, 60 and 64 teams in mind. Whether it be single or double round robin would of course depend upon the tournament size - I would most likely run 48 or 56 team format with double round robin, while 50, 60 or 64 team format would be a single round robin tournament.

Tiebreakers

The tiebreakers work according to this order:
-Points
-H2H Points
-Overall Goal Differential
-H2H Goal Differential
-Overall Goals For
-H2H Goals For

Questions

Be sure to ask any questions you have regarding this bid and your potential host.

Thank you for the honour.

As of right now, we have arond 51 teams. Since I'm going to be slightly busy, especially as I expect to fly abroad to the other side of the world this saturday, I am going to give 36 more hours of wait before making a choice on whether to go ahead with 48 or 56 team format.

The everything thread will be in 24 hours' time.

And with that, I will replace Free Republics with Adyatin. At the same time, Northwest Kalactin's request via personal message, to replace NK with his puppet is also approved.

Signups remain closed, and the pots and group stages will be done to reflect this. Any withdrawal from signup for this WCoH, from this point on, will not be permitted. This will be executed as a host policy.

I have a question to Québec. Group stage games are home and away played in each other nations or all home and away games in your nations? I'm asking this because I'm gonna include home arena info in my roster.
