We are planning with one mappool for both weeks.

plans can be changed

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. :)

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.

Memories of OWC 2013... Back then, that was amazingly done.

Hopefully we're gonna have a good one :-)

Poland, Taiwan and USA looks the strongest but there are few other teams who can make TOP 4.

To the ones that said that Korea's roster is weak have no knowledge at all. Their roster is scary af which was already proven in other tournaments like All star, ocwt, ohc and many more. Cinia, Chiyo, Reimu, Neta, Meltina they are all consistent af especially Neta, Chiyo and Cinia seems to be underrated by many players since they didnt see their tournament performance yet and are just judging by their ranks. Im pretty sure that South Korea will make it very far, they could even win the whole thing.
The underdogs of the tournament will be Austria. Nobody will expect much of them, but they could even crush the high/top seeded teams
Really looking forward to OWC so many strong teams, I wonder how they will do the seeds since imo USA, Germany, South Korea, China, Poland, Taiwan should all be Top seeded
