Greetings,

Welcome to the region of Esportiva. We are a friendly region who are big fans of sports, and new nations, of course, are always welcome. There are a few trophies in our cabinet (not counting the Campionato), but we're always looking for some additional silverware.

Ytt - I think you may have made a little mistake in the Round of 24 match-ups, as Chrovan beat Felix in them, but Felix has progressed.

Fixed.

I'm a bit confused on how a club qualifies for the Cygnus Cup. I entered one of my teams, Zym Zeolots, into the competition because they won my domestic cup. However, they were regected by Valladares on the basis that Zym had been entered in two competitions that would allow it to qualify. Zym won the regular season title, not a different cup, which is where I think the confusion came from. Does a Cygnus Cup qualifier have to NOT place first in league standings? Do they have to be a team that doesn't qualify for the CC or GC?

Often times my qualifiers to the Cygnus are in the GC or CC and indeed have won the double on three occasions. Perhaps TG Valladares, to take it up with him.

Well guys, I'm not dead. I'm going to be tentatively back while I try to fit NS into my daily schedule. Sorry for not RPing the CE, and with the IC plan Im coming up with I dont think it would be a good idea to start RPing. No fear though, I will be back for the WC!

I believe he rejected the entry because the Lee Cup is rather a play-off than a genuine domestic Cup. Only the eight teams that scored best in the competition participate - with a draw based upon their ranking in the competition. -I could be mistaken, but that's from the first glance-

Well it's happened, Licen has CTE'd :( (along with about half the region if the thingie is to be believed).

Tbh, half of them are old nations of Nexxus.

On another note, sorry for lack of activity in the CE, and just about everywhere really for the past 3 or 4 says. Had a family crisis, nothing too awful but nothing too desirable either. Hopefully will all be cleared up soon.

Hmm... I guess my league is just to Americanized

OK guys, I have an uncomfortable announcement to make:

I'm going to take temporary leave from NationStates. RL has hit me hard these last couple of weeks, and my activity has been down to browsing the Olympics, the T20WC (which I've been knocked out of now) and some General topics. Speaking of the T20WC, I've noted that the reason that I've gone out is because I simply haven't had time to RP, and if I can't do that, I just don't think I have much to do here.

I'm planning to take a break for a month, possibly longer, possibly shorter, just to clear my RL life. I plan to be back for the next GCF Test Cricket season, so I'm going to find out when that is going to be from Liventia. If that's in 3 months, I might be back earlier. Whether I return with Uitbregen: I don't know, I might have some good ideas for a new nation!

In regards to protecting the region, I'm not against password-protecting the region, but I'm interested to hear your views (so I'll stick around for another 48 hours to just get stuff sorted).

So sorry to do this guys, especially after Li and NSI left a few months back, but I just can't really see any other options. I have one more RP to do, and I'll do it this weekend - it involves my blogger getting married to his long-time girlfriend, so it's a nice note to stop at.

Adios, for a lil while, fellas, and keep on truckin'
