Campionato Esportiva 31 - Signups [OPEN, Esportiva ONLY]

Postby Esportiva History » Fri Oct 22, 2021 8:09 am

Campionato Esportiva 31

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


This is the official signup thread for the Campionato Esportiva 31, Esportiva's longest running and biggest sports tournament. This football tournament has produced 15 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 The Licentian Isles was Nova Anglicana (AZE), winning their second consecutive Campionato Esportiva trophy after winning against Gergary in the final.

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 CE31-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).

We sign up as puppets of Hannasea; please remove us first if needed for numbers reasons.

Preferred IC name: Ha'Yarok

In addition to above numbers puppet signup for soccer, we sign up for baseball and basketball; both entries should be treated as numbers puppets and excluded if not needed.

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.
