T20 World Cup Signups & OOC

Welcome to the 1st T20 World Cup! As the tournament name suggests, we will be role playing Cricket this time! For those that have been participants of previous sports roleplay (the 1st World Cup of Football, and the Rugby World Cups, among others), then you know there will be something like this. For those that have not, don't you worry!

To enter the 1st T20 World Cup, just add a reply to this topic by saying "I want to sign up for the 1st T20 World Cup", or anything along the lines there. Also include the link of your nation in TWP to ensure that you won't get disqualified when we review entries for signups. Though, same with the RMB, we won't allow double posting (except for me to post my intentions in signing up :D). You can always edit your reply at any given time how many times you want. Also, this thread is for signups and OOC (out of context) posts, like questions about the tournament. If you don't like asking questions here, you can ask them in #sports or #roleplay-chat in our RP Discord server (join us here: https://discord.gg/pNNm2amb) or message me there directly. The IC (in context) thread where we will be posting our nations' team information (players, kits, logo, anything related to such), roleplay (preparations, match day events), and results will be separate and shall have the link be announced in Discord or can be viewed here in our forums starting May 8, 2021.

In addition, I will be scorinating this tournament, but if you want your country to host the 1st T20 World Cup, signify the same in your reply for signing up. A little bit of something new from the previous versions of role play, we will be assigning responsibilities for the nation that will host this World Cup (to be selected on May 6, 2021, announced on May 7, 2021), including but not limited to posting info about their nation, posting about venues, the role play during the opening ceremony, and the role play during the closing ceremony.

Bids for hosting will be accepted until May 6, 2021 at 8 PM EDT, while signups will close on May 7, 2021 at 8 PM EDT.

That's all for now. Confused about how we will be doing this? New with scorinating? Taking a page from Resu's book, read below.

 

Sports rp is a special kind of roleplay where rather than the roleplayers deciding what happens, the results are generated first and then the stories are created by the players after the fact to fit the results. This means that the cardinal rule while rp'ing is don't contradict the provided scoreline.

Ah, but how is that scoreline created, you ask? With a special piece of software called a 'scorinator.' A scorinator uses random numbers to generate a realistic score for a sporting even, taking into account several factors. These factors usually are rank and roleplay. If the competitors have competed in the past and established before which teams are stronger, that can be reflected by assigning those teams a rank. The scorinator will then provide realistic results where the stronger team is more likely to win. On the other hand, teams can be given an rp bonus as well. RP bonus is a tool used to encourage people to roleplay in the competition. The user scorinating the competition will read rps and give a bonus to each team according to the roleplay it wrote, slightly boosting its performance in the scorinator. However, this doesn't mean that if you roleplay you will win, and you should always roleplay because it's fun, not because you want the bonus. 

Results will be scorinated one matchday at a time to allow people to roleplay about each game. If you have any other questions about the whole thing works that I didn't address here, feel free to message me or ask in the thread.
