Most of these players have streams with hundreds of followers. I dont see how any player outside the top 5 is an irrelevant player.
Being a less popular game mode don't justify killing it altogether. 10k viewer for the DMWC4 equals the best RM audiences from one or two years ago.
Top RM players have signed up to various past DM events. The latest DM world cup featured Tatoh, Daut, ACCM, Miguel, Bact, Rubenstock, Nili, Villese, Vinchester, Lan and k4sva.
Past events featured Riut, Mr. Yo, vivi, jordan, nicov, etc.
It's totally understandable that not all top RM players...

I know you won't disclose the individual votes, but i would be interesting in having the "other 20ish" players which were in one of the voters top 20.

1v1 has been done so many times, and we can already predict top 5 almost in the right order.
imho the most unpredictable tourney would be 3v3, and we could see some parts of dm that the average aoc viewer dont know about. 3v3 has my vote.
other maps, like Oasis, mediterranean, gold rush or...
