Stop bringing your issues here.

If you think you have been spoiled and want to know the reason for what a player isn't allowed to play, he is free, as stated again and again, to send a mail to tournaments@ppy.sh
Gonna quote it because some couldn't read.

Cleaned the thread a bit. Don't force me to do it again or silences will surely come with it.

I've seen a lot of complaints about Finals in Loser Bracket, Match for the Finals coming from Loser's Bracket and the actual Finals sharing the same map-pool last year as Japan ended up playing the Final Map Pool for a whopping 5 sets: 1 vs USA, 1 vs South Korea, 1 vs Germany and 2 vs Poland.
While it seems to be kind of stupid to me to make a new map pool exclusively for the final Final it's the only way to fit the schedule(PQ on a separate weekend while loser's bracket finals+"third-place" finals are on the same). Anyway I think variation would be greatly appreciated.
Another option would be tackling the schedule as in moving the AE to the same weekend as PQ but having AE played on Sa and PQ on Su. That way an additional mappool would be used for 2-3 sets and the winner of AE would have enough time to mentally prepare for PQ.

Just some thoughts as the 5 sets of the final pool by Japan were experienced as a bit lame.

The finals mappool became a bit too repetitive when the same songs were played constantly. For the grand final, a new mappool should be made.

you're arguing semantics


This was simply the response I got from Loctav asking a similar question, it doesn't seem like there is any intention to change it. Personally I'd prefer two mappools as well, but I'm not the one managing the tournament.

Several observations I'd like to make:

1. The Netherlands has as close to an optimal roster as they can get. We can expect a strong performance from them.

2. Argentina's team is (in my opinion) going to be hurt by the absence of players such as Glazbom and Salvage.

3. Taiwan's team should, under no circumstances, be scoffed at. Some people said they won't be able to compete with Poland and the US in this OWC... I'm gonna call bullshit on that one! They have their Holy Trinity (Rucker, SnowWhite and Small K) and their other players are extremely experienced as well.

There are 8 teams, whose rosters have not been revealed yet, but Austria's team should also be really strong (provided we don't see any surprise absence from it).

I still don't think this tournament will be as good as OWC 2013 (of which I have very fond memories), but I am hoping for some tough competition and great matches. :)

i bet usa gonna be on top this year, very good roster :)

IMO team USA may not even be top seed depending on Austria's team. There are many teams people overlook like Taiwan, UK, Germany and South Korea. Heck, I'd say even the current Japanese roster looks more promising than US'.
Taiwan is strong, but I'd say the US has a better roster than any of the other countries you mentioned. Japan is more than likely going to be mediocre. At the very bare minimum, the US has the 4th best roster so far. Outside of Poland and Taiwan, you'd be hard pressed to find a better 4 than Axarious, Xilver, Kitteh, and Toy in my opinion.

Pretty much this. Just by statistics, they're clearly looking like a fan-favorite somewhat and they've been rapidly improving as well. I wouldn't be surprised if I saw them in top 4.

Is Toy actually going to be able to play though? Also, don't forget Ritzeh, he's very consistent and did great in the NAT.

Xilver confirmed on his stream last night that Toy would be available to play when the tournament rolls around.
