World Baseball Classic 47 Signup Thread (CLOSED)

Postby Free Republics » Mon Sep 16, 2019 10:52 am

World Baseball Classic 47


As the new president of the World Baseball Classic Council and the reigning champion, it is my honor to open signups for the 47th edition of the World Baseball Classic! In RL, baseball season is winding down and playoff baseball will soon be upon us. With the NS soccer cycle also coming to an end right now, it is an ideal time for the return of the longest running non-soccer event in NS Sports history.

How do I sign up?

Just post a reply to this thread saying that you sign up.

Can I sign up more than 1 nation?

You may sign up with up to 2 nations. If you sign up 2 nations, you must declare one of them a "puppet" and confirm with both nations that you control the other nation. The decision of whether or not to include "puppet" nations is up to the eventual host.

For example: This post counts as a signup for Free Republics and I confirm that Saintland is my puppet in case I decide to enter them later.

Who hosts this tournament?

Anybody who wishes to host this tournament may place a host bid in this thread. Host bids should include, at a minimum, information about what scorinator will be used (including the specific formula), the proposed tournament format, any tiebreakers that will be used and the usual details about RP bonus.

How is the host selected?

The members of the World Baseball Classic Council (those who have participated in past WBCs and have been voted into the Council) will vote to choose whether to accept a host bid or to reject all bids and reopen the bidding process.

Who are the members of the WBC Council

The full membership of the WBC Council is listed here

Should I bid if I don't have any hosting experience?

Probably not unless you're bidding with a more experienced partner. The WBC is one of the largest and most RPed events in NS Sports and thus we tend to prefer a more experienced host. However, there is no restriction on a first time host bidding.

What did previous successful host bids look like?

Here are the last 7 winning bids:

Winning WBC 46 bid (Newmanistan & The Sherpa Empire)
Winning WBC 45 bid (Cassadaigua)
Winning WBC 44 bid (Newmanistan)
Winning WBC 43 bid (Cassadaigua)
Winning WBC 42 bid (Free Republics)
Winning WBC 41 bid (Equestrian States)
Winning WBC 40 bid (Cassadaigua)

What is the deadline for host bids

The deadline for host bids will be 7 PM Eastern Time (US/Canada) on October 1st, 2019.

Around when will the WBC start?

Assuming a host bid is posted before the deadline and selected during the first vote, we're probably looking at the tournament starting during the 2nd week of October and running into November. The group stage may overlap with the Winter Olympics but it is extremely unlikely that the WBC will end up overlapping with the next NS World Cup cycle.

Where are the current rankings?

The rankings following WBC 46 can be found here.

Where is the Discussion Thread?

The WBC Discussion Thread can be found here.

I have another question that isn't answered here.

Feel free to ask it here if it's about signups or host bids. Otherwise, feel free to ask it in the Discussion Thread.

Tornado Queendom WBC 47 Bid

Since SOMEBODY needs to host this, I'm going all in on hosting it. I'd LOVE the option to represent the WBC, even though I'm gonna be pretty bad at it. I'll try my hardest, even IF I don't do a good job. And no, there's NO host logo.
1. Scorination will be done with the latest xkoranate, as usual. RP bonus potential will be decided on later, even though I will not do RP, and have no plan on doing so.
2. The groups, of course, will be like this. (In groups/players format)
36=6/6
40=8/5
42=6/7
48=8/6
As usual, three matchdays a day.
Due to a lack of time, I'll likely be able to scorinate only ONE match a day.
3. 16 teams will play in the playoffs, though 48+ signups will mean more teams. If 6 groups exist, the top two in every team then 4 random teams will be promoted. Group winners will be seeded regardless of record, as to keep things equal.
4. Tiebreakers will be done by overall run differential, or a tiebreaker game. H2H records don't matter, because I don't really have time.
5. The Tornado Queendom may not have the experience of most other hosts, but I have made fictional eSports in spreadsheets and text files before. Thus, actual sports might not be impossible.
6. The finals will be shown LIVE on PPV! (This last one is a joke, BTW.)
