Campionato Esportiva 29 - Signups [CLOSED]

Postby Filindostan » Sun Feb 28, 2021 5:14 pm

Campionato Esportiva 29

Signup/OOC Thread | Previous edition | Rankings | Previous successful Host Bid | Wikipedia article on football


This is the official signup thread for the Campionato Esportiva 29, Esportiva's longest running and biggest sports tournament. This football tournament has produced 14 different winners, with Nephara/New Sideburn and Brenecia holding the record for the most Campionato titles with five, and Apox having three titles to their name. The most recent winner of the tournament held in South Newlandia was Hampton Island, winning their first Campionato Esportiva trophy after denying Brenecia's attempt to have a shot at being the sole winningest team in Esportiva history.

Signup Instructions

Nations intending to signup for the tournament should be in Esportiva at the time of the creation of the thread. Nations returning from CTE and have participated in previous editions may enter at the discretion of the elected hosts or the organizers of the tournament. In extraordinary cases, the first requirement may be waived to make up numbers, but it is more of an exception than the norm and should be only invoked as a last resort.

Users are entitled to enter two nations, with one on puppet status which should be declared and confirmed by both nations. Kindly note that puppet signups may be purged from the entry list as per hosts' discretion, and normally the first puppets to be dropped are the ones signed up the latest. Nations entering with a different in-character (IC) name should include this in boldface in their signup to be recognized.


Signed-up nations who intend to host the tournament should post their bids in this thread to be considered for voting. There is no prescribed number of users to host, though usually solo or joint host bids from two distinct users have been the norm for these kinds of tournaments. Bids posted should have the following information: How the tournament will be run (format), how the scores will be generated (scorination tool and parameters), and why should participants entrust you to run the tournament (OOC information and experience). The previous successful bid for the tournament is posted in the header for reference.

Bids will be opened by the time signups are open and will remain open within two weeks from opening the signup thread. Once the first bid is posted, other nations are given 5 days to submit competing bids in which 2 days will be allotted thereafter for participants to lodge queries on the bids.

In case no bids are posted within two weeks, the CE committee may put up an emergency bid within the week succeeding the two-week period, which may be withdrawn once a proper bid is posted.

Other Information

This thread may be used in lieu of the regional message board (RMB) for CE29-related discussions, and will serve as the discussion thread upon closure of signups.

The organizers of this tournament reserves the right to make adjustments to the admin side of the tournament in case needed. Should you have any queries, don't hesitate to ask either Filindostan, Zeta Reka and Hugeltaldom, South Newlandia, or Sylestone via the usual channels (TG, RMB, and the NS Sports Discord channel).

RP context

Football is not a popular sport in the Federation (it is usually referred to as hateball because of how much we hate it). Nonetheless, participating in and hosting a regional tournament, whether or not we can spell the name of that tournament, is a good way of boosting regional solidarity. And, on the plus side, visiting fans shouldn’t have any problems getting tickets to games. The Hannasean Federation is a small, largely unremarkable Alpine state, marked as a "land of contrasts", with extremes from sky-scraping mountain ranges to low flat lake valleys, a small wealthy elite and a mass of dull impoverished peasantry, and some pretty cool dogs vs. some pretty lame cats.

Much of the country's political organization revolves around large Guild Houses representing key industries – such as banking, the country's notoriously generous financial secrecy laws having made it a haven for more than just ski-tourists; dairy farming; copper mining; and industrial owl-stretching – and each Guild House has agreed to sponsor a group stage for this tournament, with all matches in each group being played in the Guild’s associated stadium; knockout stage games will be allocated according to competitive bidding. Given the country is new to the region, more information to help RPing will be provided in an info-pack, along with specific information for each Group/Guild.


Single RR group stage with all games played in the Guild Federation. 4 is an ideal group size but 5 will be used if more convenient; number of groups to be massaged based on puppet entries. While 32 entries would be ideal, that seems historically improbable, so smaller numbers of groups will be entertained and third-and-lower-placed teams compete for the remainder of the qualifying spots. The top 16 – top 2 from each group plus as many of these lower-placed teams as are needed – will progress to a seeded single elimination bracket, which will also include a 3PPO. Tiebreakers will be: goal difference; head to head record; head to head goal difference; coin flip.


NSFS for xkoranate 0.3.3 will be used, with ±5 xkoranate-style modifiers. There will be a daily (actually every 48 hours) RP bonus, plus a double roster bonus. The cut-off will be posted every 48 hours, provisionally at 09:00 UTC. As usual with tournaments I host, there will be a few flourishes, in the hope of to aiding RP: some brief news stories or other RP material posted at the cut-off for those who want to interact with the country rather than report scores; and a team-of-the-tournament named at the end of the tournament.


I hosted WCoH31. With some of my other nations I co-hosted CR36 in the last round of regionals, recently co-hosted the Baptism of Fire and previously solo-hosted one edition, and have hosted various other tournaments in various other codes of sportsball.


I am bidding as a solo host here, but if anyone is interested in co-hosting let me know and we can see if we could work together effectively.

Puppet of the above. There will be a roster, but no RP, so it's fine if you ditch us if we can't contribute to a healthy round number of entrants.
Former Nepharim territory, former Anglatian puppet, current Nepharim puppet. It's complicated, but probably not as much as it sounds.
