Personally, I think World Cup should be held every 4 years, like the olympics; or maybe every 3 years. Every 2 years seems too often. World Cup 7 lasted for four months, and I'm sure those who managed to get a top position in the final standings invested a huge amount of time, so it seems a little to early to have the next World Cup already in 18 months.

And it's not just the amount of time you play, but also the amount of time you spend thinking "I should play". The latter wears you down.

i hope next wcup will be curated. don't like the concept of 15 random levs including 1 pipe and few hoylas or whatever. just make a clear curated cup. like sunl thing were super cool imo with clear theme and narrative.

Obviously World Cup 8 should be held in 2020 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Elma. Also because a 3 year cycle seems good.

For the 20th anniversary Elasto Mania we need World Cup X.

So 2018 - World Cup 8
And 2019 - World Cup 9
2020 - ?????? World Cup X

You herd it from me first.

It will take me at least 3 years to recover from this, so 2020 sounds reasonable.

Might be time to bump this. Many have talked of 2020, which would mean preperations should start somewhat soon.

So now that we are closer is 2020 still have good time? And if so should it be spring or fall?

Late 2020 seems very manageable for me compared to now. Just in terms of current workload. By then I will finally be finished with my PhD (if I can finally get past the examiners), so that will relieve a lot of pressure from life and allow good hoyl time. Very exciting stuff to think of WC8, especially for 20th Elma anniversary and FEM2020. Nice idea!

Seems quite bad idea to me to have wcup right after releasing new elma, need some time for everyone to adjust, figure out what needs fixing (should have a non-wcup cup first etc). Duno if time to rebuild the playerbase is needed or not. Anyway it should be well established before having wcup in it imo. So it seems optimal to me to have wcup before it gets released.

I'll just echo this. And for a true 20 year anniversary it should start in February but that might be too soon (..?).

Dear Andry, it would still be the World Cup. World Cup 5 (link here) had some short events, there was even one event which was divided into 'a' and 'b' levels where you could send in to one of them only.

Sidenote: despite being incredibly far in the past for fresh guys like you or kuchi - this very World Cup was on the very same level of overall quality (regarding skill, levels and organisation) whereas even surpassing the likes of WC6 and WC7 in general scene's boom and interest.

yes, 1 lev divided by two is poss. Or 2 short. But the cup couldnt consist of only short levs i think. This changes all the conception.

Lol, compared winners in WC5 and WC6 by levels. Only Zweq is in both tables (1 win in each). Many things changed in elma during this 8 years)) Hard to say it about next 6 years:/
Wonder if there will be WC9 ever? And how many ppl will participate if it will
