Elephant Chess Cup 4 - OOC Thread (Signups closed)

Postby South Newlandia » Sun May 15, 2022 1:39 pm

Overview:
This is the fourth Elephant Chess Cup, following three successful tournaments; Teams of 4 will compete against each other in rapid (15 minutes + 5 seconds per move) chess for the title.

Host bidding:
After the first three ECCs were hosted by and in South Newlandia, other nations will be allowed to bid to host the fourth edition. There are no rules to restrict nations from bidding, and bidders are quite free in how exactly they intend to host the event, ICly and OOCly, and are encouraged to include all the important information in their host bid. Be aware, however, that this can be a relatively complicated event; if you haven't hosted an event on NSS before, this might not be the ideal starting point.
Host bids will be put to vote for all signed up users that have previously RPed in an ECC. I also reserve the right to reject host bids should they not meet the standards expected; which are to explain how they plan to run the event ICly and OOCly. I'm setting the deadline for host bids to be submitted at May 27th, 22:00 UTC.

Puppet rules
You may sign up a secondary nation if you have previously roleplayed in an Elephant Chess Cup. The puppet arrangement will have to be declared by both the "master" and the puppet.

Roleplay
Chess knowledge is not required to participate in this competition. You are free to roleplay about whatever you want, and do not have to mention the results at all.

It's similar to other competitions on NationStates Sports. If you want a general overview, I can recommend reading the Guide to Sports Roleplaying; the same concept is applied to chess here. Results will be semi-randomly generated using a scorinator. If you have any questions about this tournament specifically, you can also try to check out the previous editions and how they ran (linked at the top of the OP of this thread), or feel free to send me a telegram!

We return, hopefully to win this time.

I'm also considering bidding, but I've never hosted anything before, so... maybe not. I dunno for sure right now.

Member of the South Pacific Special Forces since February 7th, 2022.
I allegedly did well in these tournaments:
1st: Baptism of Fire 75, World Junior Hockey Championship 17
2nd: World Cup of Masters 4, Elephant Chess Cups 2 and 3
3rd: Elephant Chess Cup 1
4th:
Quarterfinalist: Jenna Raven Cup 1, Quidditch World Cup 11, 5th International Cup of 7ball, International Baseball Slam 15, Independent Associations Championship 14

Also apparently the first user in like a decade and a half to win the Baptism of Fire with two different nations (75 and 78), so that's cool ig

Referred to either as the Cordian Isles or Cordia depending on a complex mathematical formula for confusion which sounds better.

That's right, baby.
NS Stats are not canon(See factbook for more info). Nation does not represent RL views. IC Name for all other RPs: Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. IC Name for NS Sports ONLY: Sannyamathland. Currently undergoing major restructuring. So factbooks and other settings may change.
Communist. Deal with it.

An alt-history nation where neither the Soviet Union nor the Eastern Bloc collapsed. The Soviet Coup occured in 1989 and was successful in removing Gorbachev, thus preventing the collapse of the people's government.
