TWP College Football [OOC]

IC Thread

Welcome to The West Pacific’s inaugural college football competition, hosted by WPCAA, the West Pacific Collegiate Athletic Association. Any resident of TWP may participate in this event, over the course of which you will be able to watch your teams play against your region-mates in pursuit of victory and glory! This thread is where you will sign up, and it will also serve to establish the rules, as well as provide a platform for any OOC (out of context) discussion or questions that may arise.

How to Sign Up

Signing up for TWP college football is easy! Just make a post in this thread saying you would like to sign up, and provide the name of your TWP nation, the name of the team you are entering, and the name of the school they represent! That’s it! If you prefer, you can fill out the application form below, which will allow you to provide a little more information. (One thing you might want to give me is a style modifier, a tool I use to simulate your team’s style of play.)

Spoiler

Nation: (What nation is your team from? Must be a TWP resident.)

Trigram: (three letter code used to identify your nation.)

School name: (What school does your team represent?)

Team name: (What do people call your team? You can provide an additional nickname if you would like.)

Style modifier: (A number from -5 to 5, up to three decimal places. This number describes your team’s style of play. A team with a style mod of negative five is a very defensive team, while a team with a style mod of five is a very aggressive team. Defensive teams, teams with lower style modifiers, will score fewer points, but also prevent opposing teams from scoring. Aggressive teams, teams with higher style modifiers, will score more points, yet also allow more points to be scored against them. A team with a style mod of 0 has a balanced play style. This number does not affect your likelihood of winning.)

Stadium: (Name and capacity.)

Rules & Info

Sign-ups will be open until around the end of the month. Exact date TBD depending on my schedule.

Only Residents of The West Pacific may enter.

Members of TWP’s Hall of Nations may enter 2 teams in the competition, all other nations may enter 1.

Results will be determined through the use of a ‘scorinator,’ a program used to randomly generate scores.

Contestants are encouraged to roleplay; any roleplay will gain for its author a bonus to boost their team’s chances of winning their next game. A roleplay thread will be posted when sign-ups close.

Roleplays, or RPs, can be about anything. They can be written specifically about the team and its past results, or anything else. Users with two teams can roleplay for both. I will split the bonus between the two teams as indicated or as seems appropriate.

A decaying cumulative RP bonus will be used. In other words, recent RPs will count for a larger bonus than older ones, but all RPs will grant at least some bonus. Not all RPs will receive the same bonus.

The teams of any contestant who endorses the guardian will be granted a small bonus.

Nations who do not provide a style modifier will be given a modifier of 0. Nations who don’t provide a trigram will also be given one.

Based on the number of teams who sign-up, the teams will be divided into conferences. Ideally, no player will play against themselves, and some vague correspondence to our TWP map will be maintained. The season schedule will include conference and inter-conference play, and will be determined based on the size and number of the conferences.

The winners of each conference will enter the post-season and have a chance to gain eternal fame by winning TWP’s first Dragon Bowl!

Currently, we hope to post results two or three times a week, according to my personal RL schedule and the conference schedule. The season will start sometime at the beginning of June.

UPDATE

I'm please to see what looks like a great crew coming together! We'll be getting things rolling soon. I'm here to bring a little bit more information in the meantime.

Sign-ups will probably be closing early next week. Typically, I'm hoping to get two or three game days in each week so that we can have a bit of a regular schedule once the season starts, but we'll have a slightly longer period--one week--between the closing of sign-ups and the first RP cutoff. This will allow people to work on rosters, etc. I've decided also that the RP bonus you will receive for your roster won't decay the same way other RP bonuses will. This means: write a roster! Even if you're not going to RP, it's nice to at least let other people know who they're playing against. I will post a guide to writing your own roster when I post the RP thread, which I will do when sign-ups close. Also, even if you don't get around to it right away, it means that it'll help you out to write a roster at any point. As they say, better late than never. I will also be giving you extra time before the first cutoff so that if you like, you can write a roster as well as your first RP. I will be giving space for a bonus for both.

Another note on scheduling: I'm hoping to have a nice round number of teams so that organizing you guys into conferences can be nice and symmetrical. I have a little control over the numbers, but I may jump in and cut off sign-ups if I see there's nice round number, which is why I'm not publishing an exact date for the close of sign-ups. That said, all of you who are members of the Hall of Nations are eligible to enter two teams. That means that a few of you can still enter one more team. @Podium, @Craiolia, @Arnic, @ghouldovka, @HankTheTank87, and @ete74, you can all still submit one more entry.

My goal is to have 4 conferences named after the continents on the map; Polaris, Doll Guldur, Aura, and Andolia. Since most of the teams are from Polaris, and some people aren't on the map, the conferences won't actually reflect the geographic location of the teams. It depends on the numbers, of course, but I'm hoping that each team will play every other team in their conference at home and away. The conferences will also be put into pairs and teams will play an inter-conference game with each team in their paired conference. I will try to place teams into conferences so that no one who has two teams will have to play against themselves--what's the point of that?

Anyway, that's the plan, so I hope that this is nice and transparent and gets us all on the same page. Sorry for the wall of text.

You'll hear back from me next week!

There is space for one more user to sign up, and then I will stop accepting entries. The last entrant can still submit two teams if they are part of the hall of nations, but only one more user will be accepted. This way I can get a good number and not have to kick anybody out or anything.
