International Basketball Championship 33 [OOC]

Postby International Basketball Organization » Mon Oct 04, 2021 3:20 am

It's time for another edition of the world championship in basketball, the International Basketball Championship (IBC)! Signups are officially open and will remain open until the person elected host chooses to cut them off. Signups are closed.

Puppet rules

Each user may sign up one puppet in addition to their main nation; ownership of the puppet must be declared. Entry of puppet nations into the tournament is at the host's discretion and it is advised that puppet nations may be the first excluded in the interests of keeping numbers to a workable limit.

Host bidding

Anyone may bid to host, on their own or in collaboration with another user. In order to meet the minimum standards of a host bid, it is expected that your bid will outline the format for the tournament, and provide a method of scorination, such as the basketball function of xkoranate or some other scorinator. Because this is international basketball, scorinators based on FIBA scoring, rather than scoring in the NBA or other domestic leagues, are generally expected to be used. Members of the IBO will vote on the host bid options.
