Hey, it could be worse. The World Cup of Hockey only has 6 countries, and they had to make up 2 artificial teams among the rest of the good players. :lol:

Hey guys, Mr Color here coming in a little bit before this whole ordeal starts. As you guys know I'll be once more taking part in the play-by-play commentary for the event. I just wanted to introduce myself to the community once again in the middle of all the pre-cup drama. If you guys want to send me any pointers of things you feel I should mention on air about certain players, their strengths and weaknesses, as well as the maps that will be used, I will of course be studying up to offer the most insightful commentary possible, but I won't refuse a little help doing that, so by all means feel free to hit me up with a forum PM and I'll make sure to note down any interesting info you guys will send my way.

You guys have a good one, and I'll see you for the drawings!

B-but is this a good idea? Just hope there won't be any spies on the stream :D

I would definitely like to see more countries represented, and have already discussed with loctav about extending the entry period to make sure those that haven't yet registered can.

That'd be very nice. It's a shame that countries like Russia, Japan, Ukraine or other countries with good players are not represented :(

This wouldn't change a thing.
Even with 2 weeks more, the outcome would have been the same.
This is about motivation, not time.

Japan didn't understand or didn't want to participate and Ukraine wasn't motivated.

Yup, we had a lot of countries with 2registrations, maybe we can PM them so that they can search for a third player ? We had registrations from 32 countries of so I guess we could easily gather more of them

The motivation is absolutely there (@Arrival) but all of them have either too less players (e.g. Ukraine), misunderstood the rules (e.g. Japan), don't have time (e.g. Netherlands) or their players got retired (e.g Russia). Some didn't even know about the TWC since they missed the information. So it's less about the motivation and more about the other things. I will also give a little transparency to you guys, so you are more certain about what has been done before (to come to Nashmuns suggestion):

UK, Norway, Finland, balkan has been also contacted.


And to solve the mystery about Japan (even though Loctav mentioned it before) I will also post a screen here:



I hope this could clear the air a bit. Will talk with Loctav about this.

Countries not having enough players are myths. A LOT of people doesn't want to register because they think they'll loose anyway. Along the year I've been told hundred of times that countries like Italy don't have any players and that we should allow multicountries team, and what do we see here ? An Italian team within the 16participant.
Even Hungary could gather a team because they had the motivation to, don't tell me countries like Russia/Ukraine/Brazil do not have enough player, I know by fact they have.

EDIT : Before someone points it out : I do not say every country of the world can gather a team so no need to point out a country saying "You see, no players". But there are way more than 16countries with players <#5000, just by playing multiplayer mode you should be able to see that
OnosakiHito
I absolutely agree with that. I've just put the information in a compact way. But even so, there is more than that sometimes - proud, certain rules, wrong view about mappools and more. There are more factors which effect the opinion of players in a country. I ecountered alot of them. So I think it is also about how we represent this TWC?

Well when you have the motivation you're able to find players (Please, Ukraine has 10 players in the Top #4K), or to find "time" (hey the whole NL team doesn't have the time, although all the other countries can register, really ?). And come on, there are like 300 Japanese who are able to play in the TWC, don't tell me only ONE of them understood the rules...

No need to debate on the "why", just give countries a second chance to participate so that we have a good TWC. And I don't think anyone would be proud winning the tournament if Japan is not represented :p
OnosakiHito
I guess Kurai is right. I just wanted to show some transparency anyway, not debating about it. lol

I guess you're both right. But I'm still wondering when will we have the justification for why we have been rejected ? It has been 2 days I sent an e-mail, and I still don't know what I did wrong. But as Loctav said, I must be lying...

So Japan wasn't proud of winning last year because no Taiwan team ? Taiwan has a better TWC history than Japan (2wins out of 3participations), people tend to forget that and think Japan is some kind of superior entity that cannot be defeated while it's not.

Anyway, I think we all agree that we'd like to see more countries represented, but we cannot force them to participate, even more when some of them do it on purpose just because they hope it will lead to allowing multicountries team

And we demand to ban those multi account when discovered

If someone want to join the match and found out they have multi account and being kicked, it looks like the official is just making up reason for banning some player to join.

If they have been banned before they can send the registration letter, no one will think they are selectively excluded.

Does this mean I can invite my friend from the same country to increase my country rosters ?

If Indonesia had XK / Nishi / Aesa / GH / LW / pmriva team combination then we're equally as strong as France 8D
