Please keep in mind that everything that involves manual organized matches are not working, since they can not be organized.
I wonder if people read :C

@Noriko eeeh

@AmaiHachimitsu we'll see. OWC didn't start yet. No need to open it for now. Also it will be way more moderated, so you should quit your moo'ing there - else we will only have it during matches.

To bring the "world" back to osu! World Cup, I have thought of a way of ensuring there is less drama about the participating countries. tl;dr but please read before bringing out your bazookas. It's just an idea.

I know this requires even more organizing, but I think it would be fair if the world was divided into more or less equally-numbered groups, like Africa and Europe etc. In those groups, all of the countries listed in the group (which means all of the country communities in osu! would be placed in a group based on the geographical and national setting) can present their team if they want to, and in every group there would be a mini-tournament from where the best countries would proceed to the OWC, making up 32 participants. This way, each and every country, be they really small and weak or really huge and skilled, would have the chance to play for a slot in the OWC and there would not (hopefully) be a case where people would complain because this or that country didn't even get a chance. There would be universal guidelines that would apply to each group, and as there would of course be the main tournament management, a group manager for each group would be assigned to be responsible for the success of the mini-tournament. That would divide workload between the tournament management overall and it would in my opinion be easier for everyone, both the staff and the players, to handle this tournament... The mini-tournaments could be held, let's say, in mid-August or September, this would leave people enough time to practice and the management to organize.

Do you actually have to send in the form a second time for a roster update, or does the pm suffice?

Because the changes haven't been applied yet, or is it just because the tournament staff is busy?

Noriko this idea has been suggested in this thread already and he reply was "too much work for us"

It's called asking for help, everything doesn't have to be done by one or three people or how many there is working on the well-being of the tournament. It won't ensure the effectiveness of things, it will just make them more complicated. If the staff only considered this, it'd be wonderful.

I am actually thinking about reserving a slot for all countries that made it into the knock-out stage of the previous OWC. Means that everyone that ascends to knock-out stage has a reserved slot for the next years OWC.
Rest is first come firdt serve or maybe another metric (depending on ppv2)

Drop your opinions please
Good idea, absolutelly agree with this one, the 16 teams in fact could be the seeded teams for the next owc, two on each group.


The qualification one is also pretty good but yeah, it's too much work.

Let's wait a little longer and let the management wake up first. :) We'll probably learn this within today.

The message I sent you is yet absolute. Your team can play, the one person not.
Don't drag stuff like this here. I told you to exchange the one person. If you did, everything is fine.

Confirmations to every team will be sent out when their roster has been finalized internally. During this, we'll add people to the wiki page. Please be patient since it can take some time to finalize everything (soooo maaaaaany pms)

I think 8 seeding countries is appropriate. 16 is half of the enrolled teams and 4 is too little to make a difference.

Edit: How about:
Seeding teams decided by the performance of teams in last 2 years:
Last year: +8(1st) +5(2nd) +3(3rd) +2 +1 +1 +1 +1
The year before last: +4(1st) +3(2nd) +2(3rd) +1 +1 +1 +1 +1

The 8 seeding teams will be divided into 8 different groups.

I think this OWC will be a close and suspensefully race, there are many good teams. Luckily Germany turned into a powerful and consistent folk of players and got pretty strong. So this year, I exceptionally believe in our team. Good luck to every team tho! :3

Also, how will technical issues be managed? I mean, if for some reason, a players game crashes, lags or freezes? Will there be a repetition for the whole map?
Or will it be ignored and called ''misfortune''?

It's also nice to see that Flashlight will not be part of the played modifications, since it's consisting of studying and memorizing a map.

@Cubex everything is settled in the rules, please refer to them. And please quit the FL discussions and give it a chance. Opinions stay opinions. Tastes stay tastes.
