📢 Atlantian Oceania partners with NS Sports 🏎️ Racing Team for #EUR-AO WA Campaign Marketing ☑️

Atlantian Oceania partners with NS Sports Racing Team for WA Campaign Marketing

When the checkered flag flew at the Hapilopper Raceway's NationStates Stock Car Racing Association (NSSCRA) event, most of the teams packed up their equipment and moved on to the next circuit on the tour in Terre Septentrionale. One team stayed behind, however, as Team Tropicorp rolled out their backup car for an on-track photo session at the Atlantian Oceania based track. Typically adorned with the #42 and sponsorship featuring the Tropicorp Sifaka Racing Tyre, the car had been re-wrapped in new colors featuring the number 20 and the campaign poster for the Atlantian Oceania campaign for World Assembly Secretary General.

After initially going head to head with 2016 World Assembly General Election 7th place finishing nation Eura, the two sports-focused candidates merged into a single campaign using the poundsmash #EUR-AO on the popular Turorian social messaging platform twii.tur. Now, looking to get the word out to further support for NationStates Sports primary election candidate, the Atlantian Oceania team are looking to leverage the sporting environments that first helped them rise to prominence on the World Stage.

The Atlantian Oceania campaign is hoping to use their entry into the NSSCRA as a platform to both advertise their candidacy for World Assembly Secretary General as well as to use their race car as a tool to reward those Nations that cast their ballot in support of Atlantian Oceania in the World Assembly. The Atlantian Oceania campaign is offering that any nation that casts their ballot in support of Atlantian Oceania during Round 2 of the World Assembly elections will get their name on the #20 car for the upcoming race weekend. It is believed that many nations who have been looking to see their name in lights have already jumped on the opportunity while various corporations throughout Atlantian Oceania have lined up to sweeten the deal with low-margin supply contracts to other nations considering throwing their support behind the #EUR-AO Secretary General Campaign.

About Atlantian Oceania

Atlantian Oceania is the current delegate of Atlantian Oceania, the all-time winningest and most active region in Nationstates Sports history. Atlantian Oceania's sporting triumphs have been most prominent in the Football World Cup where they have since won 37 of the 71 World Cup's competed in since their creation; a victory rate of just over 50%. Atlantian Oceania and its users also were the first to create regional based competitions, hosting their own regional Olympics, a regional football tournament started by Krytenia which is now the longest running Regional Sports competition on Nationstates, as well as other smaller competitions leading to the classification of Atlantian Oceania as a "Sports Region". While there were other historical regions with a sports focus, none ever had the staying power of Atlantian Oceania and the model has since been followed by Rushmore and Esportiva who form the 'Big 3' of NationStates Sports.

. Atlantian Oceania or its Nationstates Sporting Community allies have placed inside the Top 10 during every official April Fools event since the first Z-Day event in 2013 but have yet to claim first prize. Some of the greatest accomplishments for the community include the 3rd placed showing of the International Geese Brigades during the first Nuclear Option event and the 7th place finish during the first World Assembly Secretary General elections by partner nation Eura.

While Eura was unable to advance from Rd 1 of the 2020 Elections, Atlantian Oceania and Eura have now partnered for the #EUR-AO campaign, unifying the Nationstates Sporting community as they look for a reputable Top 10 finish in the Nationstates-wide election while at the same time looking to bring knowledge of the Nationstates Sports community to a new audience that may have been unaware of the existence of organized national sporting competitions. The official #EUR-AO campaign thread is available at viewtopic.php?f=37&t=482666

About Nationstates Sports

The Nationstates Sports Community, known colloquially as "NS Sports" is a community of nations that operate and run national and international sports competitions within and between nations through the Nationstates Forum system. All nations are welcome to Nationstates Sports, Trans Anarcho-Communist Lesbian Catgirls or not. Typically politics are left at the door when competing in Nationstates Sports much as in real life, however, national elections, border conflicts and other traditional disputes regularly find their way into Nationstates Sports Roleplay threads when describing the backstories of nations competing. The current champion of the World Cup, Farfadillis, is in a period of national Anarchy which is a storyline that often takes precedence over the reporting on their individual match results. Nationstates Sports is also home to the Annual NS Olympic Games, hosted most recently by Liventia and Vilita with participation from throughout the NS Multiverse.

Prior to the move from the jolt forums, Sports were integrated in the old "NationStates" forum. However, the growth in popularity of sporting competitions between nations in game earned the community its own forum when migrated back to the NationStates server. This has allowed a major blossoming in both the quantity and quality of Nationstates Sports Role-play though there may now be less 'cross posting' between genres. We welcome all to check out some of the active Nationstates Sports threads and signup for the 85th World Cup, the longest running sporting event in all of Nationstates, which will begin this summer ( viewtopic.php?f=7&t=482320 ).

Many current and former game admins, moderators and mentors have participated in Nationstates Sports, the World Cup or smaller regional competitions. These include current sports moderators Starblaydia, Audioslavia and The Archregimancy as well as a slew of others such as Lamoni, USS Monitor, Bears Armed and The Macabees. While we have yet to see Testlandia sign up for an NS Sports competition, we are optimistic that the next World Cup will be the first and hope a successful campaign for WA Secretary General will see this become reality.

Testimonial from an active Nationstates Sports user
Imagine, if you will, a young fifteen year older. He establishes himself as a star in his home turf, a god among men. Alas, his cries for relevance require that he go through the challenges that lay beyond the borders of his very own nation. He devotes himself to being the finest man in his sport. Alas, due to his brashness, he fails miserably.

He gets thrown around by the circumstances around him at first but then he keeps at it. He realizes that there's something out there for him if he keeps at it. He soldiers on, in spite of the lack of acknowledgement from the crowd. He reaches his lowest point... and then, a breakthrough happens.

He finds himself on top of an emerging nation. He finds himself linked to what he always wanted himself to be, a world champion. That's the story of a fictional player invented by an user that has long since left the site, yet remained alive through the efforts of other users which, for better or worse, allowed his creation to enter the Hall of Fame of the sport he was introduced as a player of.

NS Sports is a tight-knit group that allows such weird stories to be told and be read with a smile. It's a place where a race car driver can be confused with a pony. It's a place where one can spend an entire tournament running a multi-faceted war and yet not take full spotlight. It's a place that isn't even restricted to the laws of causality, let alone the laws of actual sports. There's a reason the place I spent most of the time at NS is NS Sports. Never had to ruin other people's days for that too. Why don't you drop by? You might like the peace, the place... and the music sessions at Friday.

About the Nationstates Stock Car Racing Association (NSSCRA)

The Nationstates Stock Car Racing Association, currently based out of the nation of Newmanistan, is the Nationstates multiverse's only recurring Stock Car auto racing series. Run out of the Nationstates Sports Forum, the competition runs between 1-2 times a year with a month-long signup window and approximately 20 weeks of action. Participants can enter between 1-4 drivers to the series and Roleplay can follow anything from a strict reporting of the drivers results on a week-to-week basis, to their hunt for sponsorship, to their personal life, parties and relationships. The common bond between all participants are the results generated by the host nation, Newmanistan, and posted on Sundays and alternating Wednesdays throughout the season. Testimonials could be provided by many active nations who are current or former participants in the NSSCRA including another candidate for the WA Elections, Valentine Z. While the NSSCRA does not accept mid-season signups, a subscription to the circuits discussion thread could advise the status of future competitions. In addition to the NSSCRA, Nationstates Sports also has other motorsports including the World Grand Prix circuit and an assortment of smaller national level motorsports events.
