World Baseball Classic 49 Signups (CLOSED)

Postby Banija » Fri Jun 26, 2020 1:45 pm

World Baseball Classic 49


As the Acting President and current Vice President of the World Baseball Classic Council, it is my honor to open signups for the 49th edition of the World Baseball Classic! Better known as the seventh seven. In RL, a very strange, fanless, and truncated Major League Baseball season will be upon us in the coming days. It is as good as a time as ever to celebrate the start of summer by bringing back the start of NS Sports' longest running non-soccer event- the World Baseball Classic.

Host Bid Cutoff Date: Sunday, July 5th, 2020, at 11:59 PM EDT.
Host Vote Cutoff Date: Thursday, July 9th, 2020, at 11:59 PM EDT.
Sign-Up Cutoff Date: Friday, July 10th, 2020, at 11:59 PM EDT

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 Banija and I confirm that Silver Beach 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 is each winning bid of the WBC 40s:

Winning WBC 48 bid (Drawkland)
Winning WBC 47 bid (Free Republics)
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 4 days (96 hours) after the first bid is posted.

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 sometime in the second to third week of July and potentially running into August. It's impossible to tell what the tournament will overlap with, although we can safely assume that it will not overlap with any WCC competitions.

Where are the current rankings?

The rankings following WBC 48 can be found here.

What are some important threads?

The WBC Discussion Thread can be found here. It is used for any and all OOC discussion about the tournament(besides questions directly about signups and host bids!)

Guide to NS Sports Roleplaying

WBC Constitution

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.
