World Cup of Hockey 47 - Signup Thread (OPEN)

Postby World Cup of Hockey Federation » Mon Nov 21, 2022 12:38 am

Hello NS Sport- It's that time of year again! It's time for the Forty-Seventh 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 the World Cup of Hockey (WCoH), 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. If a host bid is in plans but may need to be submitted slightly after the deadline, please contact Quebec and Shingoryeo directly via TG or PM, as I am more than welcome to accommodate that and push back the deadline as needed.

Host Bid Cutoff Date: Sunday, 27th of November, at 23:59 EST

Host bids will only be entertained from users who have participated in a past WCoH tournament (the WJHC can be used as a substitute, provided the user behind their nation has strong record). The bids will only be accepted by hosts with demonstrated understanding of Ice Hockey as a sport, and with acceptable history of clean, consistent hosting in past. Previous hosting experience is highly recommended.

In your host bid, make sure to indicate the details relating to scorination and the format being used. In this day and age, where we have a multitude of scorination files that have been modified from past, this part cannot be emphasised enough. It is also essential to include Tiebreakers and IC information as well.

Please note that the prospective bidders are welcome to propose edits to a tournament bid's details while the tournament right is in the process of being decide, provided those edits are public. Once the tournament's hosting right is won, the format and scorination details should stay as close to the bid details as possible. The World Cup of Hockey Federation reserves the executive right to remove the host-designates, who stray too far from what they have bid for without a valid reason.

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

World Cup of Hockey XLV
World Cup of Hockey XLIV
World Cup of Hockey XLIII

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.

2. 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 the 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!
