That's amazing.

Now the "lower" teams will not only have the opportunity to represent their country playing the Nations Cup, but they will have even more reasons to practice hard and get a prize money as well.

Thank you guys who contribuited with this!

wow thats really great for the tournament.
i felt like top 8 is nearly set anyway (2x brasil, 2x china, vietnam, finland and argentina), but this grades up the whole tournament :) so many other countries can fight for some price money :D

Shouldn't it say placement prizes instead of silver league? If I understand the rules and settings correctly gold league is top 16 with SY sponsoring 1-8th. Silver League is for 17th and lower for anyone not qualified to gold league?

Very confusing indeed, since 16 countries participate in the gold league and the 17th-... place are in the silver league.
I assume they mean money for 9th until 16th place and NOT silver league.

To be clear, although "Gold League" covers both the top 16 group stage and the double elimination stage for the top 8, it is possible for teams that do not make it to the top 8 to enter the "Silver League" once they drop down after the group stage.

The "Silver League" can consist of teams that would have traditionally placed from 9th onwards.

Per the Rules and Settings (viewtopic.php?f=1536&t=130802), Format:
Knockout Stage: Single Elimination. Consisting of 16 Nations, 8 Nations that survived the Silver League Group Stage and the 8 Nations that dropped down from the Gold League Group Stage. If less than 8 Nations progress from the Gold League Group Stage to the Silver League Knockout Stage, the next highest rated Nation in the Silver League Group Stage will take its place.

9-16th drop down to the silver league after the Gold League group stage if they want to continue. They join the winners of the silver league group stage.
