About World Cup
World Cup has a long history of being the most competitive contest in the Elasto Mania (and Across) scene. The first World Cup was arranged all the way back in the year 1999 and attracted a total of 206 kuskis all around the world. Since then seven more World Cups have been arranged, making the 2020 upcoming World Cup the 8th one in history.

The main format of the World Cup has remained pretty much the same although some special events have been included along the years. The number of the events has varied from 15 to 20, one event length varying from just few days to two full weeks. There is no question World Cup requires a lot of skills from the players in every aspect of the game.

Levels are made by the community, you can still submit your level for consideration but hurry up. Deadline for level submission has been extended to august 15th, see this topic for more info viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10041

It's time to get stoked and prepared for the upcoming World Cup 8! Meanwhile you can check the old World Cup data on the links below.

Yes, in fact we have a new features that allows us to force people to be hidden in cup levels (you can still choose to show yourself to team mates). Times are hidden as usual in cups.

There will be a casual test cup starting this sunday (16th) to check that cup feature is working as it should etc: one week cup, 5-6 events, 1 or 2 break days, 1 skip.

Accidentally quoted instead of edited so I guess I'll write something. Remember world cup starts in just 8 days. Donation pool is almost at $900. If there's any features on https://elma.online/cup/wct you are missing please speak up now, don't expect the cup page on elmaonline.net to be available.

Would be nice to see team and country like usual!
And some way to see exact time left (not just "in 1 day") because time zones are confusing.
"Current Event" seems like a good place for a map preview.
Btw the tables are very poorly aligned for me, the numbers aren't under the "Points" label at all.

Unfortunately, the overall presentation feels very unprofessional compared to ville_j's sites or the elmaonline.net interface.( Like some test page with no design. Though it probably won't matter when the cup begins and everyone gets super stoked.) Sorry for complaining.

World Cup starts today! All events has been added on the site >> https://wcup.site

Few things to keep in mind if you're playing:
  • Remember to upload your replay on the site, you can upload as many times as you want, so a good way to not forget is to upload whenever you make a new PR.
  • If you are in a team you can see each other in-game and download replays from the team tab on the site. Make sure you lock your team if you don't want anyone to be able to join it and find your replays >> https://elma.online/settings
  • Start and end times on the site is in your timezone, no need to try converting.
