TWC Discord conf was awesome, we should create one earlier this year, it connects team members better than Nokia

USA vs China or South Korea Grand Final again

Were the times specified? i just tried to register but i cannot find a button, i guess it ended but its still 29 October here and last year im pretty sure they used the last timezone possible to end the registration...
There was a countdown, if there's no button on your side, then you're late

Will we get a stream schedule for group stages this year? You couldn't really tell people last year to watch a specific match since there was no guarantee your match would be streamed, and iirc there were some countries that never appeared on stream once while others got 2-3 appearances. It's probably a butt to juggle, but it would be very helpful for spectators to know which matches that'll be streamed. (Or I was blind last year. Might also be that.)

There won't be a schedule for the group stage this year. In order to not make false promises, we tend to avoid definite stream schedules. We usually plan out a rough schedule, but this can change on the fly - and we don't want to be confronted with the rant if we go off the plan we have made. (this happens if the planned match either starts late or not at all, etc.)

On other news, the first 25 pending rosters are listed on the wiki now. If you signed up for any of these countries, please get in touch with your country's team creator as soon as possible.

Waiting for this year innocent players not allowed to play because of "You guess what you done".

iirc Austria has been streamed for one Map and Indonesia (?) hasn't been streamed at all?
we'd love to be streamed this year :^)

While I understand this, couldn't you solve this by having the matches of a time slot listed in a prioritized list? If a match starts late, or doesn't start within some time, then you go down the list and show that match instead.

It's a bit of a bummer when some countries get no stream time at all while others might be on stream for all 3 of their group stage matches (Norway was on for 2 streams + the last map of our match vs. Austria, while they were not streamed at all outside their one map vs. Norway).

We have our own way to schedule the streams (I am in charge of that usually) and believe me that if a team has 3 matches streamed out of 3 is because at least 2 of the matches are in blocks of either 1 or 2 matches at the same time. Sadly there isn't enough time to stream everyone and our priority will usually be for the teams on lower seeds or most interesting matches. We could release a list of priorities in terms of scheduling but at the end, we might just change it on the flow so I don't think it's worth.
