ClanBase announced NationsCup XVI today. It will include 13 cups over 9 games, where Quake Live will be represented with 3 cups mentioned below. Captain signups are already open, as well as admin signups for people who want to get involved and help with the cup.
- CB NC XVI TDM - (Captain signup, Admin signup)Full info follows:
- CB NC XVI CTF - (Captain signup, Admin signup)
- CB NC XVI iCTF - (Captain signup, Admin signup)
Stage 1 - Captains apply
In this stage, players will be able to apply for the position of team captain for their respective nations. They can do this, by using the designated menublock on the right side of the cup page.Stage 2 - Players vote
Please keep in mind that your application should be well motivated. All players will be able to see who applied for their own nation by using the menublock, mentioned above. This stage will run until 6th of January. No applications will be taken into consideration after this day.
Once all the applicants are known, players will be able to vote for their favourite candidate. There are few details to which we would like you to pay special attention. First of all, once you have voted, you cannot vote again or change your previous vote. Second, an applicant cannot vote for himself and third, when voting, you will be asked to motivate your vote. We would like to ask you to take this seriously.Stage 3 - Vote ended
All votes are kept anonymous. This stage will run until the 13th of January . In the end, the cup supervisors will determine the captains.
After the votes have been taken into consideration, the cup supervisors will announce all team captains on Wednesday 16th of January.
National Team Managers
National team players
We again are using the voting system to elect national team captains. The system is very simple: Anyone who would like to apply as captain for his nation can fill in the short application form which appears on the menublock on the right hand side of each cup. Of course, you are still expected to gather enough support from the community - just instead of documented support, you will have to achieve it on the voting process on ClanBase.
The first stage for applying as captains will close on Sunday, 6th of January. The next stage will be the voting process - which will commence once the captains signups have closed. This section will end on Sunday, 13th of January. Any user is able to vote only one time for one candidate. The voting process is anonymous to ensure a safe election. In some cups we may close the signups a bit earlier if we see there are no new candidates and/or that a substantial amount of votes have been cast.
At the final stage the selected captain will be chosen by the cup supervisors with the help of the National Team Managers. They will be chosen according to the support (votes and comments), application and record of the applicant. Previous season captains don't get selected automatically and still have to apply. The captains announcement for each cup will be on Wednesday, 16th of January.
National Team Managers
We will again be cooperating with the National Team Managers this season. In case you are new or if you have forgotten already - the task of the National Team Manager is to maintain and establish a competitive list of squads which will participate in the NationsCups by monitoring the different captains, teams and acting as a link between the teams and the CB Crew where needed.
We are currently processing the applications we have received and will be adding a few new Managers in the course of next week. We are glad to see many have also stayed with us for yet another season after doing it successfully last time. You can see who is your own National Team Manager in here.
As last time, we will use only one clan for each nation this season as well. If you are elected as team captain - contact your team Manager to be added to the national clan.
National team players
The rules for who is allowed to play or not have not been majorly altered since the last season. Players are still only allowed to play for a nation if they have the nationality of it. We will take severe measures against any player, captain or team which have a hand in faking nationalities.
Like in the previous season, we have set the date for a clan to be considered as "active" for the 3 player rule to the first day of the OpenCup/EuroCup Fall Season. This year this date is: 8th of October 2012. More about the rule can be found in our NationsCups Rules FAQ. Exceptions may apply after consulting with the Supervisors of the cup.
