Copa Rushmori XXXIII - Sign-Up Thread (ONLY Rushmore)

[OOC: This thread is intended to be used exclusively by nations in Rushmore, so if you are not a nation in Rushmore or a moderator performing his/her duties, please refrain from posting here.]

Another World Cup cycle is nearing its end, and this means it's time for a new Copa Rushmori edition, the thirty-second one! Pasarga surprised everyone with their victory in the thirty-second edition, now we move on to a new edition in which a new winner could potentially claim a piece of silverware and inscribe its name in the Roll of Honour, and that winner could be YOU!

Shall we have a go at it, for old time's sake?
We participate in sporting events and think that participating is more important than winning *cough*.

<Nethers> My girls are not that sleazy!

<Nethers> Oi, my slow semen have nothing to do with this conversation!

<Nethers> I haven't had this much booze since last October... And that's when I made out with a chick that smokes. And kisses horrible. And doesn't look good.
<Nethers> I probably shouldn't have said that...

<Nethers> I really didn't like balls flying towards my head
<Nethers> in my sport they were so hard...

<QPeMA> Oooh, please, make an exception, I promise to never dream you're an ugly French girl again

<QPeMA> Crikey Nethers, you look like a young Steve Buscemi you sexy b*****d.

Signups updated through Nethertopia. In addition, the CR Rankings are updated and ready to go, unless Cassadaigua wins the 3PPo. I would urge anyone planning to bid to have that up soon.

We figure that it's time to terrorize the sign-ups here.

Nellietopia will send their invasion force to seize Rushmore.

The Nellietopian Enclave of Rushmore will compete at the the next Copa Rushmori.

A Bid for Copa Rushmori XXXIII

IC Information
The Dominion of Pasarga is a pair of islands in northwest Rushmori home to the "home nations" of the region. The islands are notable for their toy exports, their following of Zoroastrianism, as well an unusual amount of talent in the footballing arena. A friendly people who prefer honest hard work over silver tongue workings and shouts of deeds. The nation underwent a massive modernization project with the assistance of Eura and nearly two decades ago, thought there are still some parts of the rural areas that look as if they are still turn over the century. Pasarga is a very successful footballing nation, with three World Cup Final appearances and several Copa Rushmori's as wel, being the current holders of the Copa Rushmori, with some of the worlds best players and club teams calling the nation home.

OOC Experience
The user behind Pasarga has hosted no less than twenty-five major footballing tournaments (World Cup, Cup of Harmony, and regional tournaments) under the guise of: Valanora, Pasarga, and Demot, as well as numerous WCoHs, caretaker of the DBC, caretaker of the CdC, host of the HCL, host of the AOCL, as well as conference hosting for multiple NSCAA and NSCF tournaments.

Format & Scorination
If elected, I will be using xkoranate with the NSFS formula with xkoranate modifiers. My preferred format will be groups of 4 in a single round robin using the following tiebreakers in order: Points, Goal Difference, Head to head result, and Goals For. In the event of 20 or 24 signups, 4 groups of 5 or 6 will be used with group winners and a select number of the best placed second placed teams progressing into the knockout rounds. The RP bonus will be significant and cumulative, with an emphasis on quality posting over quantity. If elected, I will be using the Copa Rushmori rankings for establishing of pots and the scorination process.
