World Baseball Classic 51- Signups (CLOSED!)

Postby World Baseball Classic » Fri Feb 26, 2021 5:30 pm


We reached the golden edition the last time, but that only put us halfway to 100. Let's begin that second half now!

This is the signup thread for World Baseball Classic 51. If you have done this before, or have done other major competitions on NS Sports before but not the World Baseball Classic before, you know what you need to do for now. If this is your first time, then let me first welcome you to the competition. Right now, all you need to do is declare that your nation signs up, and then keep an eye on this thread as the sign up process progresses. The process will eventually lead to a host vote, and once we have a host, that nation will put out a schedule and lead us through the competition.

In order to be considered as a host, you must submit a bid. On NS Sports, the host is responsible for the day to day running of the tournament, which includes being able to reliably scorinate the competition. The World Baseball Classic is typically the second most roleplayed competition on the entire forum, behind the World Cup. Therefore, it is typically a competition that requires an experienced host. There are great competitions out there for first time hosts to get their feet wet, but like the World Cup, the World Baseball Classic is not really one of them, unless jointly bidding with an experienced partner. Having said that, there is absolutely no restrictions on a first time host submitting a bid.

Recent winning bids:
Winning WBC 50 bid (Cassadaigua)
Winning WBC 49 bid (Newmanistan)
Winning WBC 48 bid (Drawkland)
Winning WBC 47 bid (Free Republics)
Winning WBC 46 bid (Newmanistan & The Sherpa Empire)

A valid WBC bid must include, at the absolute minimum, how you plan on structuring the tournament and the method of scorination. If it does not, at minimum, include that, it will not be considered for voting.

Voting on WBC host bids is done by members of the World Baseball Classic Council. The members of the council can be found by using the applicable link in the signature of this account. You can also find the current ranks by doing this.

HOST BID DEADLINE: Friday, March 12 at 8pm EDT.

Projected Timeline: The host vote will be from March 12th to the 19th. So, look for a later March start if things go smoothly.

This post also is considered the signup for Cassadaigua. If you want to play too, whether its your first time or you have done this many times, signup now!

Silvedania, the majestic nation.
NS Stats are mostly accurate except for a few things, like this nation is capitalist and the death penalty isn't in effect

News:All trade with Crabaiaia and Pikala has stopped as diplomats meet in Trenaka.  Silvedanians are confused by Quentin Tarantulatino's new film, Seasonal Snackbox(This is a Bojack Horseman reference.) Weird song goes viral for making no sense.
