|I support there being upto four teams to compete, an A, B, C and D.|
Location: New Zealand
|Each country has their A team of 'experts', after that I want to encourage anybody that enjoys puzzles and can travel to Bangalore to come (up to the venue's maximum). |
Does it even matter what country they are from? I suppose they need to be assigned to a team for team rounds.
|Everyone who wants to participate may join to the event in my opinion. No limitation should be done|
|I voted for the limit to be dictated by venue restrictions largely because it's a greater feeling of accomplishment when you are able to beat more people :)|
|I fully understand the point of view of the organizers, wanting to maximize the number of participants, but I believe a limit should be set. This is a world championship and if we want increase its profile we need to make sure that at least we give the impression that only the best in the world can play and there is a selection process in place. |
We may decide to set a relatively high limit (e.g. 3 teams per country, or 10 players) but we must not give the impression that one can wake up in the morning, look at what is the program of the TV, and as there is nothing interesting, have a go at the WSC. It's not serious. We can't hope to be credible and to attract sponsors with such a low key approach.
On a different subject. Any country can only have 4 players officially classified in the overall championship, but there is no limit with reference to the age groups, O50 and U18, The consequence has been that this year there has been a playoff with 5 players from the same country. I do not think this is fair. Nothing personal against that country, but I believe that a limit (3 players? 4?) should be set also with reference to the number of players participating officially to the age groups championships, to give players from other countries the possibility to dispute a playoff.
|Hi everyone, |
I voted for no restrictions.
|Hi , |
I am not for a restriction. The number of participants does not call into question the quality of the contents of the tests.
For an occasional player :
- to take part at least once can be a beautiful experiment which could not have existed with restrictions
- will not come to disturb the ranking of the best players.
To find sponsors, to make come the press for this event, it is mainly and nevertheless the role of the WPF to make known the championships, it seems that for Senec the topic "Press Kit" is empty, while waiting for that this day arrives or that the sponsors impose their conditions for coming , maintain the rate of participation "without restrictions" is already not so badly .
