change of pace
With the next iteration of 1v1 World Cup off in the not-too-distant future, It's that time of year again where we start getting things rolling with making sure everything's reasonably feasible! The main thing we're looking at this time around is:
- Team populations. Last year, the teams all managed to be pretty decently sized, as well as all being plenty capable of succeeding, though the big concern we're looking at now is from how a major chunk of Eastern Europe has all either been banned or likely won't be returning. Given how Eastern Europe was already the lightest team in terms of signups, there are concerns over whether or not the team is even possible while still using last year's map of Europe, let alone viable.
While the data is being gathered, feel free to discuss any topic that you feel needs addressing, whether it's this one, possibly changing up the slots, drawing team borders, any other new suggestions, etc. The only thing I ask is that you keep shitposting and offtopic posts to a minimum until the actual tour starts up. For the time being, I'd prefer that this thread be used mainly for making sure the operation of 1v1 World Cup continues to run smoothly.
For reference, the timeline of events for 1v1 World Cup V is below:
