Official Newmanistan Cup of Harmony 39 Hosting Bid

Postby Newmanistan » Sat Jul 11, 2009 5:54 am

OFFICIAL CUP OF HARMONY 39 BID


Members of the Executive World Cup Committee,

It is with great honor that I present to you the official host bid by the Empire of Newmanistan for the 39th edition of the Cup of Harmony. This is a solo hosting bid. Most Cups of Harmony have two co-hosts, this one does not simply because it is a very last minute decision to bid based on the need for there to be a bid by someone! Other Cups of Harmony have been solo-hosted, though, including the recent Cup of Harmony 38 by Dancougar, so it is not unprecedented.

I) But what if the Rockets choke??
At the time of bid preparation, it appeared likely that Newmanistan was going to qualify for the World Cup Proper. If Newmanistan should happen to choke in qualifying and not make the proper, another person will be asked to scorinate the qualifying group in which the Empire ends up in. My puppet, West Newmanistan, will not participate in the CoH. (Hopefully this will be because they qualified for the World Cup, but if not, they will not be here).

II) How will it be scorinated?
With the same NSFS that is presently being used for qualifying now.

III) What about RP bonus?
RP bonus will be cumulative but there will be a 50% depreciation of the accumulated amount after every second matchday. Quality will be valued over quantity. Originality, humor, coherency, interacting with other participants, or simply having a theme you roleplay out are things that score well.

IV) What are the eligibility requirements?
One roster, posted between the opening of the WC47 Roster thread and the cutoff time of the final matchday of qualifying AND one roleplay posted between the opening of the WC47 roleplay thread and the cutoff time of the final matchday of qualifying. (I was going to give an allotment of a few hours after the final matchday’s cutoff time, but let’s face it, if they didn’t roleplay during qualifying anything after the final matchday is likely only done to become eligible once they knew they were heading here.) This applies for everyone regardless of rank.

V) And the format?
Powers of four are great. 20 and 24 work. 32 would be wonderful. Other numbers can be worked with as well. We’ll see what the final number of eligible nations is and take it from there. It will be a customary format that makes sense, so don’t worry!

VI) Run your experience by us again....
Sure. Newmanistan has co-hosted the Cup of Harmony twice before, the 33rd and 35th versions, also using NSFS. In addition, I have hosted three World Bowls (1, 2, and 5) and this is a competition that also uses NSFS. Don’t forget the Empire Charity Cup either, which also used NSFS. Then there’s two World Baseball Classics (8 and 11), and two World Lacrosse Championships (2 and 4). Also doing the Stock Car racing thing. With that, I can ensure that the 39th Cup of Harmony will be in safe hands.

*- Do not worry about conflicts with the NationStates Stock Car Racing Association. That will be put on hold during the days of the Cup of Harmony. Nor with the World Lacrosse Championships. That wasn’t going to start until this was over, anyway.

We like to think of our interns as being slighty better then yours. ;)

Nothing out of the ordinary will happen in this Cup and I will be firm in my enforcement of the eligibility requirements as posted. Instead of sacking interns, we will instead trade them to Dancougar for a seventh round draft pick and future considerations.

Should this bid be accepted, the following nations have met the criteria for inclusion. If you are here, don’t confirm your intention yet on this thread, but be prepared come Friday if the bid is approved for a thread to be opened up. If you believe you have met the criteria (one roster and one RP) during qualifying and are not listed, let me know. It was easier to figure out who posted in threads on the old forum. Even though I have not been confirmed as host, if you are on this list, you are welcome to telegram me your intention to participate while keeping in mind that will mean nothing if the EWCC does not vote in favor in the bid.

Note that Dancougar will be scorinating the group in which Newmanistan ends up in, and all games that involve my nation should it advance past the group stage.

If I don’t win the bid, this information couldn’t hurt whoever would eventually bid so I figured I’d just post it now. If that occurred, such other person would be under no obligation to use any information contained in this post.

1) Taeshan
2) Swilatia
3) Valipac
4) Uiri
5) The Babbage Islands
6) Cassadaigua
7) Albundania
8) Toyur
9) Akbarabad
10) Silexhera
11) Swartaz
12) Bushdome
13) Euro-Trash
14) Newmanistan :(
15) Steroga
16) Tyrrin
17) Sargossa
18) Isselmere
19) West Zirconia
20) Golgothastan
21) Somewhereistonia
22) Bettia
23) Northern Bettia
24) Valladares
25) The McLaughlin Islands
26) Landau Institute
27) Iansisle
28) Rejistania
29) Sitspot
30) Secristan
31) Penthoria
32) Gordon Bay City
33) Panuul
34) Quakmybush
35) Quintessence of Dust

Let’s shoot for 30. Or even 32! (28 may be most realistic, but let’s hope for 30!)
