IBC 36 [OOC thread]

Postby International Basketball Organization » Thu Sep 29, 2022 8:20 pm

It's time for another edition of the world championship in basketball, the International Basketball Championship (IBC)! Signups are officially open and will remain open until the person elected host chooses to cut them off closed.

Puppet rules

Each user may sign up one puppet in addition to their main nation; ownership of the puppet must be declared. Entry of puppet nations into the tournament is at the host's discretion and it is advised that puppet nations may be the first excluded in the interests of keeping numbers to a workable limit. Hosts are not obliged to accept puppets in the order they signed up, however, and the in/exclusion of puppets is entirely their prerogative.

Host bidding

Anyone may bid to host, on their own or in collaboration with another user. In order to meet the minimum standards of a host bid, it is expected that your bid will outline the format for the tournament, and provide a method of scorination, such as the basketball function of xkoranate or some other scorinator. Because this is international basketball, scorinators based on FIBA scoring, rather than scoring in the NBA or other domestic leagues, are generally expected to be used. Members of the IBO will vote on the host bid options.

A wild San Ortelio appears.

(if some people happen to have my flag lying around, be my guest)
San Ortelio, your favorite pseudo-Italian, coastal microstate. Less than half a million inhabitants who stand for a rich culture, are governed
by an delicate yet marvellously balanced system and remain economically viable due to fishing and funky tax laws.
But enough about us. Come vai?

We're no international threat, so have our domestic thread.
Definitely check the invitation box in the OP if you want to get involved.
