World Cup (Before MK8 release)

Post by DawnKnight on Thu Dec 12, 2013 1:32 am

I've talked with many other people about having another world cup in the Radical Cats chat and many said that they would like one done as well.

I feel fairly confident that Demon and I could get JPN onboard, but I also want to ask some prominent players and PL staff what they think about this.

Here is a pool of probable countries:
JPN (Highly likely)
FR (Highly likely)
USA (Likely)
ESP (Likely)
ITA (Likely)
DE (Fairly likely)
UK (Fairly likely)
NL/BE (NL: Fairly likely, BE: Maybe) [Combined: Likely] Benelux!!!!
CAN (Maybe)

I based this list on a pool of active moderate to (somewhat) strong players that live in each country.

Brazil obviously didn't work out last time, but maybe BR and Mexico have a chance...?

Also, if this is to be done on the PL site, I think the staff and others should be able to somewhat oversee who is on each team...I remember last season there were some that were seemingly left out of national teams just because of bias. (Obviously those on national teams are supposed to be strongest from said country, though.)

The majority of the PL site should also be made public for guests as well if this ends up happening.

Also, maybe as a sector of this 'World Cup' could also be something like NA vs EU (Though obviously unbalanced) or WOR (World) vs JPN.

In case of another World Cup, Italy would surely participate.

I highly doubt that Germany would be able to participate... It's basically WEC+Marv and since Marv barely wars, I don't think we will bother with this at all.

This might have the potential for 8v8s (or even more), which is something you don't see every day.


Also, I agree with Koopz on Team GER (or DE or whatever). If those national teams are supposed to have the best players of a country, noone outside of WEC would ever get to play (Marv said he wouldn't want to play at all). And that makes it very unexciting imo. Maybe you can ask DE/GER again if you get 7 teams and desperately need an 8th one for this, idk.


GL with it though, it would be nice to see another WC.

Why not, but I'd like to see that instead of "S9".

I'm liking this idea, and will definitely keep this in mind. If we were going to go with a Season 9 it wouldnt be the normal format, but rather a tournament based thing. Maybe simply Prime League Cup Season 2.

I'd like to do a World Cup again. And preferably 8v8 this time as well. I think we could do it, but maybe only 6 teams would be able to do that. 8v8 would definitely be more interesting. Maybe we could organize a small continental league too, like NA, EU, and Asia (pretty much JPN I would think though). These could be like 12v12 or 16v16, but I highly doubt that anything higher would be possible.

Still, DE would seemingly have a strong chance of doing well even if it is only WEC...Shouldn't all countries with strong players be represented?

NL fusing with BE is a little problem too, the NL speaks dutch and the majority from BE are either Walloons or Brussels (Mostly french speaking), so its not sure if they can speak dutch too.

Outside this i'd like to see another World Cup.

True, but it seems many Dutch and Belgians speak fairly good English. With the addition of Belgium it would add strong players like Mence and Negens.

It's up to both countries on whether they want to participate, fuse, etc., of course.

1.- Yes, Sliver is in....in....oh! in RK not WA Wink

2.-Majora and Vegih aren't in ESP right now.

3.- Rockss is in GR not WA.

4.- But...I think that ESP should get same new players and say goodbye other old members. But it's only my opinion  lol!

But yes, I like the idea ^^

NL and BE just should play together because their combination of ''strong'' players is only a 7 total. All the other players from both are very ''frail'' for world cup standards.

As for ESP, it seriously should get a good reformation of the team.

If we were to do 4v4s, i think canada would participate

Otherwise i think rookies idea of combining Teams and doing 8v8s / 12v12s etc. Would be the better choice

I don't know what else to say other than that we should start organizing this soon with teams so that we finish before MK8. (And also make a section/board for it)

I don't know where rookie is and why he isn't replying to my messages but we really need to organize this soon, and we can't do that without boards for WC........

Why are you even rushing this? It's going to be another 4 months at least until MK8 release, so there should be more than enough time to organize a WC.

You could probably do two of them if you wanted.

We already decided that the target start date would be next week. (Hopefully it still will work out that way)

If we get the first eight weeks done early enough before MK8 then we can do other things with national clans as well. (Playoffs, EU vs NA vs JPN, etc.)

MK8 is most likely gonna be out in April. It's more like 2-3 months really. I'm considering other site competitions too, like Continental battles, FFAs, and possibly a restructured S9 as well, or maybe PLC. We'll see in the upcoming weeks. World Cup registration is going to be very simple. It should take less than a week to prepare as well. It's not gonna be a hassle where every individual player must sign up again, just a team representative deal.
