World Baseball Classic 53 - Signups (Closed)

Postby World Baseball Classic » Tue Nov 09, 2021 6:21 am


This is the signup thread for World Baseball Classic 53. 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.
Users that have previously participated in a WBC are allowed to sign up a secondary nation (puppet). This puppet has to be declared by both the puppet and primary nation of the user (master).
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 52 bid (Chromatika)
Winning WBC 51 bid (South Newlandia & Tikariot)
Winning WBC 50 bid (Cassadaigua)
Winning WBC 49 bid (Newmanistan)
Winning WBC 48 bid (Drawkland)

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: Tuesday, November 23 at 8 pm UTC.

Projected Timeline: The host vote will be from November 23 to November 30. So, look for an Everything Thread in early December if things go smoothly.

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