    Micras Games

    Dear representatives of Stormark, The Fédération Micraise de Sport cordially invites you to send a delegation to compete in the inaugural hosting of the Micras Games; the largest sporting event in the history of our community, to be held in the Jingdaoese capital city of Daocheng later this year. The idea for the Games was created last year as a legacy from the MicrOlympics that were held in 2008, with the aim to create an event to bring Micras together through sport. As an FMS-organised event, the majority of sports will be simulated using computerised systems, but we will also be holding a number of "live events" which will be contested between real people over the course of the games, either as direct matches or by score submission. These "live events" will be purely opt-in, and you may enter as many or as few as you like. Individuals may only represent their sole chosen nation throughout all events they enter. For those "traditional" sports which will be simulated via the FMS's usual means, we will be determining different nations' strengths and likelihood of success through their own preferences and cultural influences. Attached below is a form which you may fill-in with up to ten of the listed sports where you would prefer your nation to have a better chance of success. You may list as few as you like - if there is only a small amount of sports you're interested in - or even none at all if you have no preferences whatsoever. For sports with a range of events, you may wish to name specific disciplines if preferred (for example, with athletics, you may prefer track events over field, or long-distance running over sprinting - such preferences would affect your nation's likelihood of success in such events). Nations which do not list any preferences of sports will have the strength of their participants determined on factors such as cultural influence. Examples of this would be a nation with eastern-Asian influences being stronger at judo and table tennis, while an island nation would be more likely to have strong swimmers and rowers. We feel this is an apt way to create a wider and more realistic field of competitors for less popular sports. While we hope that all nations on Micras would love to be involved in the Micras Games, if you don't, we completely appreciate this and any nations which respond signifying their desire to opt-out will not participate. It is possible for a nation to opt-out of the "traditional sports" but still have people compete in the "live events", however, if desired. Lastly, all nations and dependencies affiliated to the FMS are permitted to compete in the Micras Games. This means that in addition to Stormark, the territory of Greater Sangun may send their own separate delegation of athletes with their own sporting preferences. We at the FMS look forward to hearing back from your nation and we hope to see you competing in Jingdao later this year!
  2. His Majesty King Craitman and Her Royal Highness Queen Anika of Craitland arrive, slightly belatedly, and give their most jubilant congratulations to the wedded couple.

    just wondering, what would Cherry Trees be in Hurmu? That's the name of Cräiteland's capital. Maybe "city of cherry trees" might make a better translation...

    i don't know if Hurmu can beat Beaugium, but they could get a draw... which will be all good as long as Alexandria beat New-Empire (which I think they are very likely to do )

    Alexandria 5-3 Hurmu This 8-goal thriller ended with the favourites for the win coming out on top, after going behind very early on. Hurmu began with a bang, with youngster Aki Mäenpää adding two more to his tally for the tournament within the first five minutes. The first cam from a long shot from the edge of the area after a loose Alexandrian pass went straight to him. The second was a tap in at the far post from a Hjular corner which the Alexandrian defence couldn't deal with. Alexandria replied after half an hour after Jean-Pierre D'Oliviera's chip through over the Hurmu defence was slotted past the kepper by Louis DuBond. Hurmu showed they weren't lacking by getting their third on the stroke of half-time when Kristján Viðarsson headed the ball in. Alexandria left it late on before they started their comeback, when on 72 minutes, Sébastien Focán curled a low free-kick around the Hurmu wall and in from 25 yards. Only three minutes later, Louis DuBond got his second of the afternoon, and Alexandria's third, after latching onto a Fábio González pass. With the score at 3-a-piece, and time ticking, both teams started attacking to get the much-needed goal they would need to put the game beyond doubt. Alexandria won a corner just before the 90 minutes were up, and a salmon-like leap from right-back David Belle was finished with a bullet header into the top corner of the net, from a González corner. Hurmu still didn't believe they were beaten when in the last of the 2 added minutes, they forced a corner. Unfortunately for them, Jean-Pierre D'Oliviera headed the corner out long to Fábio González who raced down the pitch from the centre-circle to finish the move with a delightful lob over the out-coming Loresen. The soon-to-be rivals in Cräiteland's League 1, with González at Cherry Trees and D'Oliviera at Osĵätoņ Aztecs, linked up beautifully to give Alexandria three points in their penultimate group game in this tournament.

    Hurmu 2-1 New-Empire Hurmu have won their first ever World Cup match against a much-facied New-Empire. Although the CIS nation had the more possession, they also squandered the most chances, with 3 good shots just going past Loresen's far post. Hurmu then took the lead when youngster Aki Mäenpää headed in a Hjular free-kick from the right wing after 10 minutes of play. New-Empire fought back near the end of the first half, with Jamizzo and Quentin Djalma out-playing Hurmu's midfield, and on forty minutes Glyn Wranws tapped in a good move from Purple and Djalma. Hurmu came out early in the second half as they had done in the first, playing some good passes about the field. Aki Mäenpää then scored his second of the game on 64 minutes after beating Orenga down the wing before smashing a beautiful shot with the outside of his boot into the opposite top corner from a tight angle. New-Empire weren't a complete loss in the second half and had chances to draw level, the best being Jamizzo's low free-kick which hit the outside of the post very late on in the match. Hurmu now top Group B, after the two favourites to go through, Beaugium and Alexandria drew 0-0 earlier in the day.
