3rd teams for WTC 2020

Update time for 3rd teams!

3rd team priority is decided as follows:

1 point per team at the last WTC, max 2. 

We want countries that attended the last WTC to have a bigger chance to include more teams the coming year, also having at least 2 teams shows that the country has the will and possibility to send multiple teams. The max 2 limit is used to avoid creating a system where its very hard for teams that didn’t get a third team last time to get it in the coming year.

1 point per time zone, max 2.

Some countries have a very large geographical area, this can end up with metas that have a hard time to interact and we want to open up the options for more of the regions to be represented.

The 5 most populous countries get 2 points, 6-10th most populous get 1 point

Higher populations means more potential players, and we want more of those players to get a chance to represent their country at the WTC.

3 points to the winners, 2 point for 5-1 and 1 point for 4-2 for the highest placing team from a country

Countries that perform well keeps the level of play at the WTC up and we want to give more people from that country a chance to compete.

Points for a country’s second team’s placing, 4 points for 5-1 and 2 points for 4-2. 

If the second best placing team of a country does well we really want to see what they can bring with a third team!

Ties are broken by team placement from the previous year

For this we compare the countries in question, the team used is based on the number of teams of the country with fewest teams the previous year (ie if both countries have 3 teams we compare 3rd team placement, if ones has 2 teams and the other 3 we compare 2nd team placements)

A change since previous years is that the points for placements of the first and second team will be counted from the last WTC a country attend, not only the last WTC. We are making this change to give some space for countries that for some reason can’t come one year (or every year in general) but did well before to be able to get a 3rd team. Not being at the last WTC still gives a disadvantage in getting a 3rd team (see above) but this opens up the possibility for it. Tiebreaker for team placement will always be lost for such a country due to not having any placement at the last WTC.

Another change happened last year but was never officially announced:

Previous organizers no longer get extra points. Instead they are guaranteed a 3rd team either the year they organize it or the year after. This is to avoid organizing countries having a benefit forever but still give them some benefit. Being able to use it the year after is connected to if a lot of players in that meta will be involved in the organizing and as such filling 3 teams that year might be hard.

We hope these rules seem fair and understandable.

With the rules above we get the list below:

3rd pririty
If you notice any mistakes or if something is missing please let us know as soon as possible and we will update the list.

Watch this space for more information regarding sign up and other details coming soon!
