Independents Cup OOC Thread

Postby IAC Organising Committee » Thu Nov 24, 2016 12:26 am


INDEPENDENT ASSOCIATIONS CHAMPIONSHIP
INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT




Pretty soon many of the association football-playing nations of NS Sports will be thinking about their CAF, or Campeonato, or Copa: it's the Big Three's regional championship time, and you're not invited...

The IAC-OC is pleased to open sign-ups for the second instalment of the tournament for those footballing nations who are not eligible for the Big Three championships (AO, Rushmore and Esportiva). They can be puppets of big three nations as long as they are based outside the regions. Bonesea, founder of the IAC, hosted the first one and offers hosting rights the second instalment. The championship is to use WCC rankings but with the major emphasis on RP bonus. At this stage, with the competition still in its infancy and success crucial to its long-term prospects, I don't plan to offer a voting process for hosting while we establish the strength of the tournament. Although I want to encourage and support new hosts in the long term, I would like a couple of establishing editions with experienced hosting nations, please TG Bonesea if you are interested in hosting IAC-2, sketching out the key details and expected timetable.


SIGN-UP RULES FOR IAC-2
Contact Bonesea For Hosting Rights


ELIGIBILITY & ENTRY
Any nation that is not a resident of the Big Three sporting regions - AO, Rushmore & Esportiva - at the time of this post may sign up to compete in the IAC. You may have been resident there in the past and may have competed in their international tournaments previously. You may plan to move to the sporting regions in the future and participation in this tournament does not preclude that, although it would be considered extremely bad manners to do so at the time of participation.

The is IAC is not, of course, a WCC-sanctioned tournament, and while it uses official WCC rankings it has no impact on those rankings. Nations that have participated in WCs and nations that have not are both welcome to compete in the IAC, by signing up in this thread.

PUPPETS
Puppets of main nations resident in the Big Three are still eligible to compete in the IAC provided the puppets themselves are not resident in the Big Three. Puppets should be declared for transparency.

Previous entrants may enter two nations into the IAC provided they meet eligibility criteria. This means any user who competed and RPed (roster + minimum 1 post) in the last edition of the Independents Cup (it doesn't have to be the nation they are signing up to the IAC with). When entering two nations, please declare puppet status.

Everyone else may enter one nation to this tournament.

FORMAT & SCHEDULE
Precise arrangements will confirmed by the host once selected and as the numbers become clear, but the guide for prospective hosts will be for a group stage of 3/4 games dependent on group size followed by a knockout bracket from 16 qualifying nations. Hosts will decide on a cap, with puppets taken out of the draw first if sign-ups exceed this at their discretion if necessary, last in first out.

The timetable will likely run tandem with the Big Three championships; precise dates to be confirmed and dependent on the rate of sign-ups, taking my cue from the other tournaments. I advise hosts to plan 48 hours between each cut-off to allow good time for RPing.

Probable Schedule

to be confirmed by host


SCORINATION
The tournament will be scorinated using the host's preferred method which will be confirmed in due course. WCC ranks will be used to provide a general continuity within NS football, but RP bonus amounts must be sizeable enough to potentially allow new and consistently high quality RPers a good shot at the title: see unranked Veldgouwen's run to the final in the first edition.

SIGN-UP & DISCUSSION
Sign up in this thread to participate in the second edition of the IAC. Questions and clarifications welcome. Please remember to declare puppets.

As long as you are not in the Big 3 now, then yes, that's fine!
