Handball World Cup 28 - Signups/Host Bids

Postby Sylestone » Sun Feb 18, 2024 4:44 pm

Apologies for the delay on this, been busy the past year and have frankly completely forgotten about this.

This is the official signup thread for the 28th Handball World Cup. Post here to sign up for the tournament and also bid for host. Anything along the lines of “we sign up” is suffice.

Host Bids must include form of scorination, format, tiebreakers, AI policy and RP grading/bonus plans; IC info and other stuff isn’t necessary but encouraged. A preliminary bid deadline will be set at 23:59 UTC on 25th February 2024. It should go without saying, but please bid to host only when you’re available for the month or so after the bidding deadline.

All puppet signups must be denoted and confirmed by the master nations, with puppets limited to one per user (two nations per user). If entering a puppet, please be aware they might be removed in order to reach the required number of participants.

Consider the posting of this thread to indicate my own signup.

Absolutely, although limited to one puppet per user (so two nations). However, if the eventual host needs to cull to reach appropriate numbers, be aware they may choose yours.

Signups updated in the OP - 16 right now, so we're making good progress. I've heard no word on the hosting front, but I may be willing to put up a co-bid with someone. Feel free to shoot me a TG.

Depends on when someone posts a host bid. The deadline is around 72 hours from now, but if we don't receive one by then we'll have to wait until someone bites. Once we have a bid we'll have a vote and if a bid wins, then it'll be up to their discretion but it's generally pretty soon after. If we receive one by the deadline then we might have a RP/rosters/results (everything) thread by March with a bit of luck, if not then we'll have to wait and see.

StrayaRoos Bid for HWC28

Postby StrayaRoos » Thu Feb 22, 2024 2:43 pm

The Roosian Handball Federation, in partnership with the Cove State Government, launches a bid for HWC28


OOC Info
Scorination: Xkor 0.3.3, standard handball file, using the HWC Rankings. 1/48 scorination will be used throughout the tournament (unless we get 28 or 36+ teams, where 2/48 will be used for the group stage only.)
Format
20 teams: 4 groups of 5. Single round robin, Group winners to Quarterfinals, Runners up and third placers to play in round.
24 teams: 4 groups of 6. Single round robin, Group winners to Quarterfinals, Runners up and third placers to play in round.
28 teams: 4 groups of 7. Single round robin, Top 4 in each group to Round of 16.
32 teams: 8 groups of 4. Single round robin, Top 2 in each group to Round of 16.
36 teams: 4 groups of 9. Single round robin. Top 2 in each group to Round of 16, 3rd to 6th to play in round.
AI Policy
AI text is prohibited. Any participant using it will have their RP Bonus reset to zero.
AI images must be declared, and will not be graded.
RP Bonus
I will grade RP on a scale of 0-5 per window, giving UR nations a chance to overtake the top seed (assuming they don't RP), by the 4th cutoff. A roster bonus of up to 3 points will be used as well.
Bonus will degrade throughout the tournament, on a 100-100-50 scale.
Resume
I have hosted the following events: AODICC 2 (with Avorago), ARWC5, and the IBA Netball Challenge (both solo). This is in addition to 5 seasons of domestic association football.
IC Info.
StrayaRoos is a nation in Anaia known for two things:
1. Animals that are among the most dangerous in the multiverse
2. Sport being more a religion than a pasttime
Handball has been a popular sport in the nation, especially among High Schools and Universities, which are the some of the most competitive. The bid is focused around the Pale-Zeal-Acina region in the nation's north, with 6 arenas across the three cities being used. Roosian handball is mostly an amateur sport, apart from the 5-team States Cup, and the 8-team Franchise-based Championship, which are Semi-pro. The RHF hopes to use hosting HWC28 as a launchpad to expand the Championship to 12 teams, and make it a fully professional sport at the top levels
