it's actually a very good idea, that no other tournament did.
Make the number of spots limited, based on rating, but give plenty of time for people to up their rating. Brings a shitload of activity and games, without the need to moderate a bigger tournament, painful scheduling for both admins and players etc.
Also players who make the top, probably spent a lot of time practicing up front, so higher level of games in the actual tournaments, less AW etc.
Swissboy is an innovator like always!!

Well said my thoughts exactly regarding how the skill level will be higher with all this activity going on between players to ensure they are in the top 32. Great format indeed for signups!

Exactly. Just look the 1v1 ladder on Voobly. I'm around for 5 - 6 years and the activity in top 1v1 has never been as high. Also for 2000 - 2150 players with that limited number of spots the tournament already started. If that was Arabia AoC tournament I wouldn't be that surprised about the spots. But this is wololo, players are forced to learn many new things, bos, test many matchups. Also they need to buy all the expansions, HD and stuff, install.. I really wouldn't expect that many experts going for it, but it's so impressive. And the fact that they really need to prepare for this tournament and play hundreds of wololo games before the tournament just shows that WK will be succesful on Voobly after this tournament aswell.

I'm a bit sad for everyone unable to play this though, if I imagine myself with 18xx rating unable to play this I'd be really unhappy.

I played few games in npl and it's quite good. But some games new players gets in and ruins game.

You know the sign up race is brutal when ACCM, Yellow, Pike is in the lower half and ten 2k players are below the threshold......

What happens if more than 32 sign up?


Highest 32 players get a spot, the next 4-6 become backups in case someone needs to be removed.

Brackets starting to look really good!


Bottom half is really heavily loaded. Anyone could beat anyone starting from round 1 for some and round 2 for others.
