World Baseball Classic 58 (SIGNUPS OPEN, Voting in Progress)

Postby World Baseball Classic » Mon Nov 27, 2023 10:55 am


This is the signup thread for World Baseball Classic 58. If you have done this before, or have done other major competitions on NS Sports before but not the World Baseball Classic before, you know what you need to do for now. If this is your first time, then let me first welcome you to the competition. Right now, all you need to do is declare that your nation signs up, and then keep an eye on this thread as the sign up process progresses.
Users that have previously participated in a WBC are allowed to sign up a secondary nation (puppet). This puppet has to be declared by both the puppet and primary nation of the user (master).
The process will eventually lead to a host vote, and once we have a host, that nation will put out a schedule and lead us through the competition.

In order to be considered as a host, you must submit a bid. On NS Sports, the host is responsible for the day to day running of the tournament, which includes being able to reliably scorinate the competition. The World Baseball Classic is typically the second most roleplayed competition on the entire forum, behind the World Cup. Therefore, it is typically a competition that requires an experienced host. There are great competitions out there for first time hosts to get their feet wet, but like the World Cup, the World Baseball Classic is not really one of them, unless jointly bidding with an experienced partner. Having said that, there are no restrictions on a first time host submitting a bid.

Recent winning bids:
Winning WBC 57 bid(Cassadaigua)
Winning WBC 56 bid (Chromatika)
Winning WBC 55 bid (Drawkland)
Winning WBC 54 bid (Zwangzug)
Winning WBC 53 bid (Banija)
Winning WBC 52 bid (Chromatika)
Winning WBC 51 bid (South Newlandia & Tikariot)

A valid WBC bid must include, at the absolute minimum, how you plan on structuring the tournament and the method of scorination. If it does not, at minimum, include that, it will not be considered for voting.

Voting on WBC host bids is done by members of the World Baseball Classic Council. The members of the council can be found by using the applicable link in the signature of this account. You can also find the current ranks there.

HOST BID DEADLINE: Monday, December 11th at 11:59 pm EST.

Projected Timeline: The host vote will be from December 12th to December 19th, or shorter, depending. So, look for an Everything Thread in later December if things go smoothly.

This post also is considered the signup for Nova Anglicana. If you want to play too, whether it's your first time or you have done this many times, sign up now!

Baseball is a bat-and-ball sport played between two teams of nine players each, taking turns batting and fielding. The game occurs over the course of several plays, with each play generally beginning when a player on the fielding team, called the pitcher, throws a ball that a player on the batting team, called the batter, tries to hit with a bat. The objective of the offensive team (batting team) is to hit the ball into the field of play, away from the other team's players, allowing its players to run the bases, having them advance counter-clockwise around four bases to score what are called "runs". The objective of the defensive team (referred to as the fielding team) is to prevent batters from becoming runners, and to prevent runners' advance around the bases.[2] A run is scored when a runner legally advances around the bases in order and touches home plate (the place where the player started as a batter).
