A little late, the results are as follows:

Liventia: 6
Restart: 1

Liventia is therefore granted the rights to host the upcoming WGP2 season!

Congratulations Nephara and Mriin for breaking your 'losing finals' streaks. I know a little of that 'well thank heavens for that' feeling, but I'll remind you that the losing bug isn't something you become immune to after shaking it off. And well done to Ethane and Taeshan for running a successful ...

*snip* That being said, in this particular context I would probably have done the same thing the NS hosts did. Excellent googling Zwang, as always. And I concur with the idea that, in the absence of Goals For, Away Goals, Wins or Fair Play as possible tiebreakers, re-attributing previous H2H tiebre...

I interpreted the tiebreaker specified in the bid as having been followed. If more than two teams are tied, then you look at only the matches between the tied teams, and repeat. That's how it works in the World Cup IRL. My understanding is that this *isn't* how it works in the RL World Cup, but I d...

As I said on Discord, the right thing to do would have been to clarify this before scorinating. You did actually say, in answer to the hypothetical 'what if group B does this' situation posed to you: "In that case I'd go to RP bonus (toincoss) as a tiebreaker cause the H2H didn't split it in th...

Ok, but evidently having put quite a bit of thought and effort into this, you view that limitation as a problem. I don't believe there is a problem with the current KPB system. I believe the current KPB system has a limitation. If you infer otherwise, you're mistaken. And then looking at your previ...

Could you be more specific about what currently existing problem you think reworking the KPB system will solve? This isn't a problem/solution situation. This is a limitation/<whatever the verb is for removing a limitation> situation. Quite a few World Cups (for example World Cups 87, 86, 83, 81, 80...

An alternative plan: One that ensures a level of parity between World Cups ⋅ Have [X] KPB points (where [X] is the same figure every cycle) for the hosts to divide among non-qualifiers. ⋅ How the hosts will divide said points must be defined in their bid. ⋅ It is the ho...

Just to address the point about Cup of Harmony KPB points versus points for teams that do badly in the World Cup: Over the last eleven completed cycles (WC76-86), an average of 5.73 CoH teams per cycle attained more KPB points than the World Cup team with the worst record. On average, 9.27 World Cup...

Aye, it'd be good to have some kind of system in place if a host decides they'd like some kind of tiered qualifiers, regardless of what we think about such an idea right now.

Zwang, that was neither constructive nor of any use to anyone. When it comes to the size of the field, I offer this as observation of being the rank keeper and veteran host. We are over a year into a global event that is giving people more free time or time at a home for the large part, so we've see...

...why potentially nerf the qualifying KPB boost for those the teams that make it through two legs without winning both matches?

You might want to address that by giving a bit of a boost to the teams that qualified automatically, whether they be group winners or second placed sides that didn't have to go through a playoff to advance. Then there's also the matter of ensuring that hosts aren't penalised for not playing World C...

I think the proposal fits a system where some teams qualify for the World Cup automatically and others go into a playoff to whittle X teams down to Y. That's what I had in mind, anyway. I don't know if it fits a system whereby zero teams qualify for the World Cup automatically from the first stage, ...

It goes into the 'bonus point' section of the formulas, which according to the rankings get added to the WC Finals points. As such it'd degrade from *(8/7) to *(4/7) *(2/7) along with the WC finals calculation. I hadn't actually realised this. I was under the impression that the 3 bonus points for m...

I've been bouncing this idea around my head for a few days. I thought I'd share it here. Currently, the KPB formula doesn't account for matches played in a second phase of qualifying. The teams entering World Cup 83's six-group second phase or World Cup 87's two-legged playoffs didn't earn any KPB p...
