Handball World Cup 22 (Signup Thread)

It's been a while since we had one of these, and with the World Cup over I thought it'd be cool to try to revive one of my early favourite tournaments.

As you can figure out, this is the official signup thread for the 22nd Handball World Cup. Post here to sign up for the tournament and also to bid to become host. Host bids must include form of scorination, format, and RP grading/bonus; everything else is not necessary, but highly encouraged. It'd be great to get some newer hosts to bid if they want to, perhaps with a senior host bidder (smaller tournaments are a great way of learning how to host and gaining experience before you go on to host the bigger events in the near future).

Consider this an expression of interest thread as well; if you want this tournament to run, express your interest/sign up here.

<drawk> If the entirety of the nation of Ethane was covered in a single cubic foot of Ethane on its surface, lighting it all on fire would cause a 5.44 megaton blast

In! Host bid may or may not come conditional on Copa outcomes - CR has priority for multiple reasons.

Edit question: After the last long hiatus, we reset the ranks - is that the plan again? (On one hand I am obviously interested in the old ranks, OTOH I think there are decent reasons for another reset)

Do you have the post-21 rankings? I can only find a spreadsheet with post-20 ranks.

Hi, glad to see there is some interest in reviving this.

As for the ranks, I do think it's best if we reset them, both because of how long it has been since the last edition, and because I don't think post-21 ranks were ever created (not that I can see, unless someone else has them somewhere). What do you guys think?

In light of the interest, I'm going to set a bidding deadline of Sunday 19th July at 2359 UTC.

Sorry for the double post, this one is more as contestant than OP.
Sylestone and I will most likely be bidding, expect to see a bid over the next day or two. That'll leave plenty of time for you to ask questions of our bid. Please feel free to bid; I'd love to see others bid and compete for this.

And I always like to see some new hosts of anyone wants to. This is a great opportunity to gain some hosting experience. (This shouldn't deter experienced hosts from bidding either though)
