1v1 World Cup IV
While the next iteration of World Cup isn't here yet, the 1v1 Tournament Director team felt it best to make this earlier so that we can have a direct line of contact with the community that doesn't end up getting as cluttered as it would when being discussed through Discord. There are many points of interest that need to be discussed with regards to how the format of the tournament should be laid out, but the biggest one that almost all the others stem from is this:
- Team sizes. There were multiple teams last World Cup that were particularly low on 1v1 players, or even outright had to draft people who were new to 1v1, as you can see in this list of signups made into a pastebin for convenience: https://pastebin.com/raw/XJnGcNeU (people who signed up for multiple regions will be listed in each region). In particular, Asia, Canada + Oceania, Central Europe, and US Central all struggle with regards to previous players coming back this year and/or outright meeting the player minimum in general.
