Before I write few things I must say I won't aprove some changes because my ass is safe. I would write the same if i had 50.000 or 100.000 MP's. With 34k you have to admit I'm not out of the race, and tbh I'don't care for this competition anymore. Before 3-4 years it was a big deal for me, but after I saw all the things in last few years now a regular league on my main account is more important to me. I played in 3 OSM WC leagues, so my goal to participate in the WC is achieved.
Reasons for reducing the number of participiants:
Organizer is bothered to put few more hours out of 365 days in checking some accounts. What an explanation. Other guys don't have real life. Just the organizer.
If he is cheerful - you will participate, if not - bad luck for you, wait 1 more year for a new chance.
Mate if u don't have time then retire, go have some cold beer on the beach, leave this crap...or guess what? Find 1 or 2 guys to help you. Simple as that.
Game with more than 5.000.000 (active players) potential participiants depends on 1 guy. This is one heck of a story! lol
Other reason: MAYBE a higher competitive level...MAYBE...and less problems.
How that? I saw ''problems'' appearead 3 times in the FINAL and that's a locig thing because everyone wants to be the WorldChampion. So doesen't matter if you have 800 participiants or 50 if a problem appear it will probably appear in a final of 12 players.
Becuase one reason or another in the last years there were just issues and controversy about the WC. I'm wondering there are still people who are much interested in this competition...
GOOD LUCK TO ALL PARTICIPIANTS! You will need strong nerves.
Appreciate for this post. Exactly what I was trying to say Due to my bad English can't compose such long texts.
@vladimir-dani Have you spent the money in the last 6 months to get the last qualifying place? If that's what you thought then you did not know how to use it wisely. I spent the money getting a place among the first qualified not only to hope that by a miracle I will qualify myself in the WC. Let's not forget that it's a competition and we need to know how to lose it in any way and maybe next year you will work harder to get a safe place. Good luck to everyone!
Instead of teaching me how to spend my money, you'd better assist to lonely organizer so he could keep this tournament without reduction.
OSM tournament depends o
i think official OSM tournaments depend on opinion of organizers, if 1 person organizes such a tournament like this (as past editions), and there isn't the opportunity to get help from other managers for various reason, we must accept it
From my point of view, it is a kind of fraud. I've spent my money during 6 month in order to reach a target and now I feel myself deceived.
I have no intention of playing this tournament, but because I've been tagged twice in a short period of time, I've been "forced" to follow this post. After reading the information that you gave, I would like to express something.
In my opinion, the reduction of the number of managers from 192 to 144 (25% less) is a little bit sad. I also think it could be considered unfair if we take into consideration the moment of the announcement of this new rule.
I can't stop thinking in those who have been working hard to achieve the goal of joining the WC2018, giving their best every day and spending their money and time, listening now that they have less opportunities to participate.
Markez, I'm pretty sure that we all here respect and understand that you have other things to do in your real life. Everybody has. But maybe you should reconsider other options before leaving 48 players out. Is it not possible asking for help to some of your bosses?
Totally agree. Reduction of the number of managers from 192 to 144 (25% less) is a little bit sad. Actually, it is really really sad. Taking into account experience of 2017, I was sure that approx 30K will be enough for participation. And YES, I spent my time and money for listening now that I have NO opportunity to participate.
Markez, you are kindly requested to reconsider your decision.
Thanks in advance.
