World Cup 2018 Signups!

#1 Post by goldfinger0303 » Fri Feb 16, 2018 7:31 am

Hello everyone and welcome to the 2018 World Cup! With the Olympics in full swing right now, I figure this is the best time to get some of those international WebDip rivalries rekindled once more.

Now, what is the World Cup? It is a two-stage team tournament that is based on your country of residence (or origin, identification, etc etc). Teams of one gunboater, two full press players, and a public press player compete through a qualifying round to advance to the Finals (which should hopefully occur in time for the actual World Cup). More details are to be found on the tournament site here

A few details on the tournament:
  • Games will be 36 hour phases.
  • Games in the opening round will be forcibly drawn in 1920, and games in the finals drawn in 1930
  • All teams need to have a captain. The captain will be the primary contact I will communicate with
  • Teams are encouraged to have substitutes. Subs can be swapped into the tournament in between rounds, but primarily serve as backups in case one player is unable to continue
  • Team play is encouraged! Talk to your teammates, they are the best (and only allowed) resources you have!
  • I will not be participating in the tournament this time around (RIP Team Mid-Atlantic)
If there are any questions that you still have, or any lingering problems from the last WC that you feel have not been addressed in the revised rules, feel free to post them here. Otherwise, get recruiting! Gather the best team possible to usurp our 2016 victors, Cascadia. Signups will close on March 1st.

Team Netherlands/Holland/NL/TBD is recruiting!

We have the following slots:

Recruiter: Claesar

Captain:
Vice:
FullPress (x2):
Public Press:
Gunboat:
Sub(s):

Please apply by sending your application to me. Feel free to add anything of interest such as your GR(2) Rank, or your favourite position. I mean which opening you would like to fill.

Don't think you're not good enough (I'll be the judge of that), as we didn't even have a team for the last WC! This time, we will certainly have a team.

To clarify, for those interested in the tournament, you can express interest here and use the thread to find and organize those from your area. Because everyone has to organize their own teams, a sign up form isn't really effective. Once you have a team, send me a PM with your team members and assigned roles. I will then add you to the tournament site. Roles will be kept anonymous, including who is your sub. Remember, subs are important! Every team should try and have one.

(Remember, teams need 1 captain, 1 co-captain (optional), 2 full press players, 1 PP player, 1 gunboat player, and 1 sub (optional but preferred) for a total of 4-5 players)

Well, if some Brasilians or South Americans want to play drop a message to maybe we can get back to the days of glory when we won the first World Cup.

Meanwhile Team Mid-Atlantic/East Coast is opening applications. Feel free to PM me if you are interested. We have a lot of open slots given the loss of multiple players from our last run.

Soo, I am absolutely terrible at the site's flagship game, but if a team I would qual for is really (And I strongly emphasize REALLY) hard up for filler/bench riders, I should qual for East/Mid-At or Mid-West

Can we manage 2 Canadian teams? I'm not volunteering for a captainship; there are members who have been here longer than I. However, I'd love to run in any FP or Gunboat game.

I would be interested in joining a German / EU / European team. But I'm quite inexperienced so perhaps better as a substitute or cheerleader? :-D

If anyone in WA/OR/BC or nearby is interested, Cascadia may have an opening or two.

And we have our first team signed up! Team Greater Lakes is back for revenge. With a new and improved All-Star veteran lineup, this is not a team to be taken lightly, folks. Led by captain Durga and co-captain yoyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyozo, they look to improve on their record-setting outing in the last WC.

Team Greater Lakes:
  • Durga
  • Tom Bombadil
  • Yigg
  • Yonni
  • Yoyoyozo
