World Lacrosse Championships 39- Signups (CLOSED!)

Postby Cassadaigua » Tue Nov 30, 2021 6:34 am

It's time to open signups for the 39th edition of the World Lacrosse Championships!

Over 38 editions, we have seen some greats in this competition. Cosumar, Sarzonia, Vangaziland, and Abanhfleft have all had tremendous success, but there is plenty of room for more nations to create their own legacy. It won't be easy though, the powers of the international scene will look to add this trophy to their collection, while others were are on the brink of success hope this is their breakout tournament.

If you would like to signup, please do so here. This post serves as the signup for Cassadaigua.

Also, we will need host bids. This is typically a good tournament for newer hosts to build their resume, but some experience with xkoranate and the forum in general will be useful. In your bid, you must, at minimum, describe your proposed format and method of scorination. If you've left anything out, please be prepared for questions. This is the winning bid of the last WLC, that can be used for reference.

The deadline for host bids will be December 11th at 8pm EDT.

Signups (20):
1) Cassadaigua
2) Taxonomic Kingdoms
3) Hannasea
4) Sarzonia
5) Banija
6) Quebec and Shingoryeo
7) The Cordian Isles
8) Bollonich
9) Arengard
10) Baker Park
11) StrayaRoos
12) HUElavia
13) Natanians and Nosts
14) Abanhfleft
15) Pius Desurongcrandis
16) Delaclava
Soldera (Puppet of Sarzonia)- Taken out to make an even number of 20. Unlikely to get to 24.

Because someone needs to bid!

WORLD LACROSSE CHAMPIONSHIPS 39
OFFICIAL HOSTING BID



I) Format

Any logical format will be used depending on the number of signups. Group sizes will be even. At the moment, there are 16 signups, so the obvious target number would be 20. I want groups of four.

Competition will be a double round robin, with each nation playing its groupmates once at home, and once away. This is not a “all games in host nation” bid. This allows you to treat your home fans to the group stage games in hopes of making it to Cassadaigua for the playoffs.

Playoffs: 8-12 teams will be advanced, depending on signup number. In the event of 30, 32, or more signups, playoff fields will be expanded to 16.

Tiebreakers: H2H, H2H GD, Overall GD, GF.
If further criteria needed to determine a playoff team: Tiebreaker Game.
If further criteria needed to simply determine seeding: “Coin toss” (higher cumulative RP bonus).

II) Scorination and RP Bonus

I will use xkoranate, and the current WLC ranks. RP bonus is extremely generous. This is especially important in a smaller tournament like this. When awarding RP bonus, quality is valued more then quantity but everything and anything is appreciated. A roster bonus is provided. RP bonus is cumulative throughout the tournament, from beginning to end, with no reductions made in it any time.

III) Experience

Have hosted multiple editions of the World Cup (with co-hosting help), the World Baseball Classic, and a slew of other stuff that can be seen in my signature.

While I am not known for fancy logos, I am known for reliable and consistent cutoffs, just ask around. In the rare, though possible times I may have difficulty, nations are notified in advance. Typically, when I make the initial schedule, I know what days I will be busier then others and plan accordingly at that time. My recent limited RP in other tournaments is not really because I am too busy, but more due to writers bloc. I would not be bidding if I did not feel as though I could not do it well at this time, if awarded the competition. The tournament will be in good hands.

StrayaRoos, please read the Guide to Sports Roleplaying, where you'll see the following line:

"Users who decide they would rather host tournaments than participate in them often don’t last very long and regularly draw ire from the community here."


Your persistent host bids for tournaments are not welcome, and will not be welcome until you've proven that you're capable of participating in events on NS Sport.

Don't worry: Plenty of the NS Sport community started out by attempting, and failing, to bid to host tournaments. Everyone learns, eventually, that in order to be trusted enough to be voted in as a host of an event, you have to get involved in the RP side of NS Sport first.
