World Junior Hockey Championships 22 - Signup Thread

Postby Quebec and Shingoryeo » Sun Dec 03, 2023 11:07 pm

22nd World Juniors Ice Hockey Championships - Signup Thread


Once again we are back to the thrilling action of junior hockey, as the sport's premier youth tournament is back for its 22nd edition. Traditionally, the World Juniors are a national team ice hockey tournament, which is for players who are younger than 20 years old (which excludes players who are age 20).

This thread will primarily serve two purposes: players can sign up for World Juniors Ice Hockey Championships (referred to throughout this post as the 'World Juniors'), 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: 1) 23:59 UTC on the 13th of December OR 2) within 48 hours of the first or the latest host bid submitted. Whichever of the two that comes first will be marked as the cutoff date.

In the case, there is another host bid submitted within the 48-hour period listed above, the same provision will be listed above. If the deadline on the 13th comes first, it will be used as a deadline. If not, the 48-hour period after second/third/x-th bid will be used as the deadline.

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. Host bids should also mention whether or not they will use the ranks in the tournament, which is provided at the International Hockey Discussion Thread. Below we have the past few successful World Cup of Hockey bids, so you know what bids for these hockey tournaments are looking like.

World Junior Hockey Championships 18 - Delaclava
World Junior Hockey Championships 19 - Lacfroid
World Junior Hockey Championships 20 - Græntfjall
World Junior Hockey Championships 21 - Darkmania




1) Sign-Ups
To sign up for the World Juniors, 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 is removed from the sign-up lists; if your nation CTE's prior to the beginning of the competition, you are advised to check on the status of your sign-up and, if necessary, sign back up.

2) Puppet Policy
Each nation will be 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!

That second part is most definitely true. Sign us up as Elejamie's puppet.
Obligatory wacky and "so random" puppet that you all know and are probably sick and tired of, brought to you by Elejamie.

With no host bid being announced past the deadline, I will be running the competition with the following hosting plan.

Expect numbers to be finalised, at the same time as everything thread's opening date. It will be in 12-24 hours' time.

WJHC-22 Hosting Plan
Quebec and Shingoryeo


Format: We have 21. At this moment, I will be removing a puppet (likely Placely Placington) to allow for a 20-team tournament barring sudden change in numbers in next 12-18 hours.

4 groups of 5 on single-MD scorination every 48 hours. Top 2 progress to a seeded quarterfinals (1-4 for group winners, 5-8 finalists). Straight up knockout rounds from that point. There will be a bronze medal game.

All games will be played in Quebec and Shingoryeo.

Tiebreakers: The IIHF scoring system of 3-2-1-0 will be used, this being:
- 3 points for regulation wins
- 2 points for OT or shootout win
- 1 point for loss in either OT or shootout
- 0 point for regulation loss

Scorination: Latest version of xkoranate version with SQIS Formula (HCL-updated, with shootouts).

There is no rank used for the scorination of the tournament. Third-party scorination will be requested in case Quebec and Shingoryeo progresses into QFs.

RP Bonus: Will be cumulative throughout the tournament, the scale to be set at 2.5 per matchday. Relevance to sport is preferred not required, though I would seriously suggest users to bring forth their connections to the sport considering the nature of World Juniors tournament itself and the availability of interest/access with the RL tournament just around the corner.

Furthermore, I will also be adding an additional reminder in terms of content involving RL players/teams in light of recent events. My personal policy is that anything that is non-canon, or cannot be explained to be canon, cannot be counted as an RP. Content extensively using real-life teams or athletes will not be given grades.

Tentative Schedule:
Opening date: 15th/16th December
Groups: 18th December
MD1: 22nd of December

With this in mind, the tournament should run right into the end of the WJHC. I will consider additional holiday scheduling where needed.
