Kelssek signs up, and:

Hosting bid

Scorination: xkorante, with additive style modifiers. RP bonus will be 50% cumulative over the entire tournament and 50% component for RPing in the current matchday.

Experience: Kelssek has previously hosted WCoH 13 and 20, as well as some of the biggest events in NS Sports: the 5th and 12th Summer Olympics (the latter co-hosted with Vekaiyu), 4th Winter Olympics, and World Cup 46 (co-hosted with Ad'ihan/Liventia). Most recently, Rugby World Cup 28 was held in Kelssek.

Rules and format - based on the RL IIHF World Championship
Basic principle: group stage with a single round robin, with 16 teams qualifying for the knockout stage. All matches will be held in the host nation.
Depending on the final numbers signed up, I may vary the method of knockout stage qualification such as by granting some teams byes. This is in line with real-world practice; see the men's 2018 Olympic tournament for an example.

During the group stage, teams winning in regulation are awarded three points, the loser none.

Where there is a tied score in the group stage, teams are given one point each. A five-minute sudden-death overtime, with three skaters per team, will follow. If the score is still tied after overtime, Game Winning Shots will be used. The team winning in overtime or shoot-out is awarded the extra point for a total of two points.

Ties in the standings are broken in the following way:
1. Number of points (three points for a regulation-time win, two points for an overtime or shootout win, one point for an overtime or shootout defeat, no points for a regulation-time defeat);
2. In case two teams are tied on points, the result of their head-to-head match will determine the ranking;
3. In case three or four teams are tied on points, the following criteria will apply (if, after applying a criterion, only two teams remain tied, the result of their head-to-head match will determine their ranking):
1. Points obtained in head-to-head matches between the teams concerned;
2. Goal differential in head-to-head matches between the teams concerned;
3. Number of goals scored in head-to-head matches between the teams concerned;
4. Result against closest best-ranked team outside tied teams;
5. Result against next-best ranked team outside tied teams;
4. Game winning shot competition between the two teams, following the procedure described below. [OOC: The result of a newly-scorinated match between the two teams, with the posted shootout score reflecting the margin of victory.]

Games which end in a tie after regulation time
All overtime periods are played three skaters on three.

In case of a tie at the end of regulation in a round of 16, quarterfinal, semi-final or bronze medal game, there will be a 10-minute, sudden-death overtime period, following a three-minute intermission. The teams will defend the same goals as in the third period. The team which scores first is the winner.

If no goal is scored during the sudden-death overtime, there will be a game winning shot (GWS) competition ("shootout"). Each team must select three shooters to compete in the GWS. If the score is still tied after the teams have had three attempts each, the teams continue to shoot in pairings until the shooter of one team misses and the shooter of the other team scores.

In the gold medal game there will be 20-minute periods of overtime, following a full intermission during which the ice will be resurfaced. The teams will change ends. The team which scores first is the winner.
