The Wincott Cup is a Hearts of Iron IV Micronational Championship created by the Commonwealth of Essexia for the Grand Unified Micronational members. It involves one micronation every year hosting an online game of Hearts of Iron IV, with the winner being able to claim the Wincott Cup as a title for their micronation.

Lord Jack of Essexia, the creator the Championship, hoped that the competition would bring the GUM micronations together, as well lovers of the HOI franchise.

The game is played non-competitively, however at the end of the game, the players would vote on which player they thought was the best, and the subsequent winner is asked to host the next Wincott Cup. This keeps players from being over-competitive, and prevents balancing problems being too important.

Etymology

The Wincott Cup was named after a passive but strong supporter of Essexia's independence, whom helped craft the ideals of the micronation. The Parliament of Essexia felt the cup should be named after him as a sort of legacy, and as he was also a fan of the Paradox grand strategy video game series.

History

Essexia is set to host the first Wincott Cup as they created the Championship, and wish to set an example, as well as create a learning experience. Their emblem features the Paradox Interactive logo in front of a globe, set in a circle. The year of the cup, 2019, is inscribed at the bottom of the outer ring. The emblem is designed with Essexia's colours of Crimson red, black, and white, as featured on their flag. The date of the game was decided to be Friday the 19th of April 2019, at 20:00 UTC.
