World Bowl XLI (41) Signup Thread (CLOSED!)

Postby World Bowl » Tue Jan 26, 2021 9:04 am

Welcome, nations and states! It's that time of year again! Yes, one of the three or four -- It's time for the 41th edition of the NationStates World Bowl, the premier international competition for Gridiron Football (also known as American football), an evolution of rugby football played primarily in North America in various forms.

This here thread will primarily serve two purposes: players can sign up for World Bowl participation (and sign-ups will be tallied in this post), and prospective hosts can submit bids to host the competition.




1) Sign-Ups
To sign up for the World Bowl, simply post in this thread stating your intention to participate. If you roleplay under a name different from your NationStates account name, please make a note of that in your post. Typically (although this is left to host discretion) nations that Cease-To-Exist (CTE) prior to the start of competition are removed from the sign-up lists; if your nation CTE's prior to the beginning of competition, you are advised to check on the status of your sign-up and, if necessary, sign back up.

1B) Puppet Policy
Nations which have previously participated in the World Bowl are permitted to submit a second nation for participation as a puppet. To sign up a puppet nation, simply post a sign-up post with that nation as you would normally for a main nation, and note that you are signing up a puppet. Please note which main nation/account it is a puppet of. After this, post a confirmation with your main account/nation. Please note that, in the event that main nations wish to sign-up after a hard sign-up limit is reached, puppet nations are the first nations to be booted from sign-ups (apart from CTE'd nations) to make room for mains. Please also note that any additional puppet policy is at the discretion of the host.




2) Hosting
As with other NS Sport events, the World Bowl requires a host. The host is selected from among nations that submit a host bid. The host is selected from among the bids by a simple majority vote of the World Bowl Assembly -- that's nations that have submitted a roster in at least two consecutive World Bowls, and then not allowed their membership to lapse (due to inactivity in the World Bowl).

2B) What is a hosting bid?
Good question! A host bid is a summary by a prospective host about how they intend to run the competition. There's certain points of information that are essential for any good hosting bid; we have no hard requirements, but people will ask you about this information if you don't include it off the bat.

First off, you need to include scorination information -- how are you going to generate scores for the competition's matches? Most people use a scorinator, a modified random number generator that can be weighted to incorporate team rank and roleplay bonus. There's a few good ones out there: there's no reason you can't use any given scorinator that produces results appropriate to gridiron football, but there's a good chance you'll need to at least explain your choice, so make sure you know how to use the scorinator you choose and understand its advantages and drawbacks on some level.

Second, how do you intend to format the competition? How are matches going to be scheduled, how will a champion be decided, and so on? Typically speaking, what this refers to is how you're going to generate the schedule, how many games everyone will play, and who gets to move on to the "post-season"/elimination rounds.

Third, describe why you're qualified to be a host of a major NationStates Sports competition. If you'd be a first-time host, feel free to submit a bid. That said, typically-speaking, it's preferred that those attempting to host the World Bowl have at least some kind of hosting experience, even with a small competition. It's a big job.

Fourth, and this is more optional than the others, feel free to include some in-character information about the host nation and its bid. You can write most of the bid in-character, if you'd like, or you can keep the whole thing out-of-character. That's up to you.

If it would help you to look at past winning host bids:
- World Bowl XXXV
- World Bowl XXXIII
- World Bowl XXXVII
- World Bowl XXXVIII
- World Bowl XXXIX
- World Bowl XL




3) Norms and Traditions
Typically-speaking, the World Bowl has utilized IFAF overtime rules (you might also know these as "college overtime" rules), in which each team has an opportunity to score from a certain distance out from the endzone, and play continues until one team fails to score. You may, if you have the means to scorinate it appropriately, use the modified sudden-death overtime rules utilized by the American National Football League (NFL), but if you intend to do this, please make note of it in your host bid in advance.

In addition, typically speaking, the competition has been formatted using a group stage (in which matches are played in a round-robin or double round-robin), followed by a playoff/elimination round (usually four rounds - a Round of 16, Quarterfinal, Semifinal, and Final/3rd Place Game). Typically, the groups are created using pots, which are created using rankings to create groups with teams across the spectrum of the rankings (i.e., the first pot has the top-8 ranked teams in the World Bowl, the second pot has the next eight, and so on). Again, you are not required by any means to follow this format, but you are asked to make a note of it in your host bid if you are planning on diverging from this norm.




4) Other Useful Information and Resources]

Guide to NS Sports Roleplaying

A) On the game itself:
Here, we use the version most commonly seen in the United States of America -- that is, 11 players on each side, 60 minute games (divided into four 15-minute quarters), etc, etc. If you're looking for a quick primer on the sport, Wikipedia has a good family of articles on the sport. IFAF/college overtime is the norm (as touched on above). If you're curious about the strategy of gridiron football, I encourage you to explore those articles, as well; I have personally found them quite informative, and they tend to be well-written, as such things go.

B) On the World Bowl:
There are rankings! You can tell where teams are, generally-speaking, relative to one another, based on their past results. These rankings are used to help weight the scorinators (see above under Hosting), but they are not the end-all, be-all: a good roleplayer can improve their fortunes rapidly, so don't get discouraged.




Thank you for bearing with me through all that information and text. Last bit of housekeeping, any OOC discussion would naturally belong in the World Bowl Discussion Thread.

Chromatik Bid to Host WBXLI


Experience:
WCC events: Baptism of Fire 46 with Aguazul, Cup of Harmony 52 with Ancharmunn, Baptism of Fire 73 with Valladares
Regional events: Copa Rushmori XI, AOCAF 53, AOCAF 59 with Freeport
The 12th U-18 WC
Other Big 4 sports: WCoH 18, WBC 36
Club football: Rainbow League System consisting of 96 teams in 6 leagues and a domestic cup, as well as multiple iterations of previous leagues as Falconfar and Yesopalitha

Scorination: The latest version of xkoranate will be used, SQIS formula, IFAF overtime, with additive style mods (from -5 to +5). Home advantage will be applied.
The cutoff window will be between 9PM to 11PM Pacific (5AM to 7AM UTC). RP bonus will be cumulative and non-degrading throughout the entire tournament.

Format: The group stage will be double-round-robin, home-and-away. Effort will be made to keep group size to be no more than six:
  • 32 Teams - 8 Groups of 4, home-and-away. Top two to playoffs.
  • 35 teams - 7 Groups of 5, home-and-away. Top two to playoffs, best five third placed teams, play-in game between the sixth and seventh third placed teams
  • 36 Teams - 9 Groups of 4, home-and-away. Play-ins from the 4 worst second-placed teams.
  • 40 Teams - 8 Groups of 5, home-and-away. Top two to playoffs.
  • 42 Teams - 7 Groups of 6, home-and-away. Top two to playoffs, best two third placed teams
  • 45 Teams - 9 Groups of 5, home-and-away. Play-ins from the 4 worst second-placed teams.
  • 48 Teams - 8 Groups of 6, home-and-away. Top three to playoffs.
  • 50 Teams - 10 Groups of 5, home-and-away. Top two to playoffs, 4 best third-placed teams to playoffs.

In the case where there are 32, 35, 36, 40, 42, or 45 teams, the 16 teams will be in a straight single-elimination bracket.
In the case where there are 48 or 50 teams, there will be a play-in round of the lower 16 teams before being seeded into a straight single-elimination bracket.

Should Chromatika make the knockout rounds, any and all matches involving them will be scored by a third party, preferably one who isn't involved in the tournament.

Tiebreakers: Wins, H2H Results, H2H Point Differential, Overall Point Differential, RP bonus.

Background of Chromatika: A group of islands located in the far northeast corner of Atlantian Oceania, Chromatika is a land finally getting back on its feet after overcoming an apartheid caste system and going through a messy first free election. Gone are the days of the Chromatik Party through the efforts of the Rainbow Revolution; the Rainbow Party, under the new leadership of Keri Wyse Aart, is making strides on correcting past wrongs and uniting the Chromatik populace to be one people working toward the same goal.

A very strict nation in terms of recreation, smoking of any drug is banned in Chromatika to Chromatiks; any visitors are to express their intent before entering the nation. Drinking is allowed but only in moderation at designated restaurants and bars; personal possession of alcohol in one’s residence is also prohibited.

The three major international airports that Chromatika accepts flights from: Ramusok (Cosumar), Quebec City (Royal Kingdom of Quebec), and Cathair (Audioslavia). However, there are flights from Banija, Starblaydia, and other nations as of late. Please arrange transportation to those airports and then fly to Chromia.

Gridiron in Chromatika: After entering one World Bowl a long while ago, the Iron Legion entered World Bowl XL and made a lasting impact, reaching the Quarterfinals. Domestically, there's Felswyr State University in the ranks of the NSCF, and a fledgling gridiron league called the CFL (Chromatik Football League), consisting of eight teams. With Felswyr State's success in the NSCF, the Iron Legion doing well in the last World Bowl, and the re-establishment of both the CFL and a Chromatik Collegiate Gridiron Football Conference, the sport is really taking off.

Questions?
