World Cup of Hockey 45 - Signup Thread (OPEN)

Postby World Cup of Hockey Federation » Fri Apr 29, 2022 11:42 am

Hello NS Sport- It's that time of year again! It's time for the Forty-Fifth edition of the World Cup of Hockey, NationStates premier international competition for ice hockey.

This thread will primarily serve two purposes: players can sign up for World Cup of Hockey(hereafter referred too as the WCoH) participation (and sign-ups will be tallied in this post), and prospective hosts can submit bids to host the competition. I am tentatively setting the following cut-off date for host bids, subject to adjustment based on numbers/when we get bids.

Host Bid Cutoff Date: Wednesday, May 18th, at 11:59 AM EDT

As a further note regarding host bids- To be considered valid, host bids must contain (at a minimum) details relating to scorination and the format being used. It is not recommended for you to make a WCoH bid unless you have at least some experience in hosting.

For inspiration, here are a few recent successful WCoH bids.

World Cup of Hockey XLIV
World Cup of Hockey XLIII
World Cup of Hockey XLII
World Cup of Hockey XLI
World Cup of Hockey XL




1) Sign-Ups
To sign up for the World Cup of Hockey, simply post in this thread stating your intention to participate. If you roleplay under a name different from your NationStates account name, please make a note of that in your post. Typically (although this is left to host discretion) nations that Cease-To-Exist (CTE) prior to the start of competition are removed from the sign-up lists; if your nation CTE's prior to the beginning of competition, you are advised to check on the status of your sign-up and, if necessary, sign back up.

1B) Puppet Policy
Nations which have previously participated in the World Cup of Hockey are permitted to submit a second nation for participation as a puppet. To sign up a puppet nation, simply post a sign-up post with that nation as you would normally for a main nation, and note that you are signing up a puppet. Please note which main nation/account it is a puppet of. After this, post a confirmation with your main account/nation. Please note that, in the event that main nations wish to sign-up after a hard sign-up limit is reached, puppet nations are the first nations to be booted from sign-ups (apart from CTE'd nations) to make room for mains. Please also note that any additional puppet policy is at the discretion of the host.




And now, without further ado, our sign-ups!
