The NWWC will be similar to the NWEC but with different hosts due to Hekko seeming to not be coming back anytime soon. NWWC (Napoleonic Wars World Cup) is a tournament that brings together the nationalities of the NW community in a competition of bayonet GroupFighting. Nations put what they think will be their strongest teams and battle it out against other nations for the prestigious title of being the World Champion.
The tournament originally started in the spring of 2012, as a pilot designed to test out national group fighting competitions. The pilot was a success and bred a full blown tournament in the autumn of 2012. As time gone by the original organizers left the community and the latest tournament 2015 was organized by Herishey and Bobertini. However, because Herishey stopped organizing and sort of retired aswell, he gave the rights to use the name to me and as I don’t want to lose such an amazing concept, I came together with Cazasar to revive the original NWWC tournament. To keep a static timeplan we decided to host a NWWC season every 6 month, while every second one will be a Mini-NWWC tournament.
Key Dates: 1st Matchday: 27.11.2016 | 2nd Matchday: 04.12.2016
1. No shooting.
2. Only Infantry muskets are to be used.
3. Only line infantry which means no foot guards, Marines, Grenadiers or Militia.
4. Only 5 members max of team can be in the arena fighting. If a team cannot get 5 members to fight they may give a free win to their opponents or fight outnumbered.
5. Teams have to have at least 6 people on the roster.
6. Maximum number of members is 10.
7. If you have lived in a nation for 5 years you are considered a citizen of that nation so you may play for that team (e.g. if I was from Scotland but I lived in Spain I would have the choice to play either UK or Spain, but once I have picked a nation to play for even if I get kicked out the team I cannot change to the other, therefore if I chose to play for UK then got kicked out the team I cannot then go to the Spanish team and try to join.), this works the same for if a player has played for a nation previously in other NWEC's.
8. Some coalitions will be allowed such as the Balkan team, others maybe allowed if a nation cannot get the numbers for a team (e.g. Austria and Germany as they speak the same language mainly, or Russia and Ukraine.)
9. If you want to enter a team you must apply to be a team captain using the application format that will be provided soon, the organisers will then decide out of all the applications who had the most support for captain.
10. The tournament has a pool stage and an elimination stage. The winners and second place teams will progress from the groups to the quarter-finals after which all matches are played in a single elimination fashion.
11. Every victory in the pool stage will award your nation 3 points. Every draw in the pool stage will award your nation 1 point. (In the case of a draw points-wise individual round-difference will be used as a tie-breaker, and if round-difference would also result in a draw, 9 additional rounds will be played between the drawing nations.)
12. Matches are to be scheduled between team captains, and a referee is to be informed at least 24 hours (a day) in advance. (A referee is either one of the organizers, or someone that the organizers approve as a referee). A match may not proceed without a referee present.
13. Each match consists of 20 rounds. All 20 rounds will be played at all times. In case of a 10-all draw in a knock-out stage match an additional round will be played to decide the winner.
14.Only people on the team roster are to be used in the matches. Players must use their listed name on the team roster when in game and must use only one Warband ID for all their matches.
15. Matches may only be played on NWWC provided servers.
16. Both co-captains will have equal power in their nations team.
17. If a player has not played a game yet he can be replaced with no penalty. You can replace up to 3 players during the tournament who have played a match.' this will be the rule on player swapping.
18. A referee must be present at each match.
This is the World Cup so all nations are eligable to sign-up. The criteria for a 'Nation' is based on citizenship or birthplace. Nation mergers are permissible but will be subject to the NWWC teams discretion. Generally mergers are only allowed in exceptional cases, largely based of criteria such as common past sovreignty, common language or common identified culture, e.g. Former Yugoslavia or Former Czechoslovakia. Nevertheless, none of these criteria will absolutely guarantee a merger.
For those of you interested in being a co-captain for your nation, please keep in mind that it is an administrative position as well that requires you to make sure that your team makes the deadlines and that people can make it to the match dates and times you agree with your opponents. In the case of multiple individuals signing up for a Nation's Captaincy or multiple teams signing up as a National team, we encourage respective individuals to negotiate amongst eachother a resolution that produces a single team for the tournament. If no agreement is willingly met then the issue will be brought to organisers who will review the case and decide the outcome of the dispute.
It is expected that the choosing of a National team's line-up is genuinely and absolutely intended to produce the strongest possible team for respective nations. The organisers will review appeals against biased team selection should there be issues. We hope that friend, regiment or any other sort of bias does not infringe the process of forming the best possible National teams.
Before a team can be registered players from a nation must reach a conclusion of who they would like to be the co-captains of their nation(s), if you wish to show your support for a candidate then either say it here or tell me in PM's or Steam. The captain application as well as the player application will be below and I will keep a list of these somewhere on the thread.
Please register using the following form, please include Steam for the Co-Captains. Team line-up changes can be made up until the Team draw deadline of the TBD, simply repost your new team in the thread to have your team updated. The sign up deadline is TBD. After this deadline 3 changes may be made to the team, after that you are stuck with what you have.
The minimum size for a final team is 10 players, the max is 14 players. Teams should expect to field at least 7 combatants during matches, the desired number being 8 combatants, so keep this in mind when creating your team line-ups. Bare this rule in mind If a player has not played a game yet he can be replaced with no penalty. You can replace up to 3 players during the tournament who have played a match.' this will be the rule on player swapping. As we want to cut the work this time, there are no player applications anymore. You can only sign up as Co-Captain. We as organizers will pick 2 Co-Captains for each country like last year. Those two will then put up the roster for their team.
For the beginning all players will be accepted, the captain

If you are able to bring us a roster of 10 people of a country not on that list, we are more than happy to add it!
