Sure? Indonesia is well known for registering in every World Cup with at least 15 teams :/

Hype hype :D

Hum, this new registration system seems to be good to allow more countries to participate because we'll actually see which player from which country is willing to participate instead of people directly saying "We can't join" . But this is also a weird idea considering it won't allow intra-country discusion between the players in order to build a team. Of course we can still do that ingame, or in our subforum, but it won't prevent someone to register without consulting them.

Last point that isn't very clear to me is this part : "Among equally strong players, the Tournament Management may let the gamble decide." So basically, if two players within the same level range register, you could eventually pick randomly between them ? So if we actually think player A would be a better addition than player B to our team even if both of them want to compete there is a chance that player B get to play even if we collectivelly wanted player A to ?

Thanks in advance for the clarifications

Be more clear with your rules, I understand it's new, but try to clean up the new additions so that we can fully understand, thanks.

"## Teams will be formed with the help of local representatives among a list of valid registrations."

Applied that to the wiki page. Keep in mind that the tournament management will surely seek for help forming the teams after finding a valid and responsible person among all registered players per country to assist founding the actual team.

Why can't you stream all the matches in a different time for the group stages? and could you stream all the matches in multiple channels this time?

Sign-up is done individually

Tournament Management will found teams

so the TM can actually pick players

wow so exciting

If you don't want some players to get in just ask 100 player sign-up then you can minimize his/her chance to get in
abrian
Well, nicely done..
Good luck to all the contestants lol
Or in other words, have fun picking the teams tournament manager.

You didn't get it


The Tournament Management will not enforce specific teams. As it currently stands (as explained yesterday in #taiko) it will more than likely be that a trustworthy player that registered gets to be captain and get a list of people that are able to play in the tournament and then they can discuss with them and pick a team. So you ARE able to play "in your team" if you want. Loctav stated that he does not want the management to pick teams for players

My choke meter will be increased here, so yeah, NOPE.

this
a lot of our Taiko players are busy IRL and another (bigger) lot of them have quitted/are inactive too lolz

also it's kinda new to me that FL and 2+ mods have been allowed. I wonder how it will fare in the matches... better, I'd say. :U

Anyways good luck to all the participants o/

Oh god, please ban HDHR and FL. Nothing good comes from allowing them.
There's pretty much two possible outcomes:
1. Someone uses dual screen for a free win. Everyone gets mad. Nobody gets punished because DS is freaking unprovable. Heck, someone could just print out the patterns on a sheet of paper and, due to the linear nature of Taiko, play off of that. Literally impossible to detect.
2. Someone actually memorizes an entire map perfectly and wins it for his team. People will get mad. Accusations get thrown around. It's pretty damn hard to prove your innocence, even with liveplay videos, since it's so easy to hide some kind of memory assist in a dead angle of the camera. Even if the liveplay convinces people that this player is capable of achieving such scores - there's nothing to say he didn't DS during the match due to pressure to perform/for consistency. People will still doubt.
Stuff like that ruins the competition pretty much. It would be a different matter if DS were actually detectable, but you all know fully well that it isn't.

Okay, I lied, there's three possible outcomes. The third - and most likely one - is that nobody even touches those mods. But if that's what you are going for, why even allow them in the first place?

wouldnt the FL/HDHR mod let a player who has known the map for a long time have the advantage?

example,
two equally skilled players play a map, wherein
1. player 1 has known the song for a long time, and have already tried to do FL, or HDHR on it, while on the other hand,
2. player 2 have never tried doing FL/HDHR on it, but had excellent records on the said map.
Clearly player 1 would just keep on practicing on it to improve his memory on the song, while player 2 will need to memorize the whole map from scratch. :?

Don't ask me why, but my forecast is cancellation due to lack of players/teams

Sure, that's probably why Loctav is flooded by registration PM since the news came out ;)
