Expanding the Main EventThere has been much discussion regarding the most recent update where we, unfortunately, had to let ACCM go. In his stead, we picked Capoch to play instead.
ACCM was an invited player determined by previous Red Bull Wololo performance, which means we used the same approach to select the player replacing him.
We had previously spoken to dogao, who were unable to go, which means he was skipped in this consideration. Instead, we reached out to TheMax. Unfortunately, he declined our invitation, and so the next person on the list was Capoch, hence why he was picked.
We did, however, have an oversight in this process. With COVID-19, restrictions and requirements change constantly, and it can be challenging to keep track of all of it. It was later discovered that the complications regarding travels from Brazil had changed and that dogao should have been considered before Capoch.
Needless to say, this error was unintentional and had considerable consequences for dogao.
To correct this mistake, we will be expanding the main event with two players, landing on a total of fourteen. The reason for expanding the event with two spots is that an even number of participants are required for our planned tournament format.
Dogao has been invited to take one of these spots, and we are currently making sure there are no further complications with his travel.
Furthermore, while we want to reward great and consistent performances in previous Red Bull Wololo events, we are also thriving to bring you a great competition. That is why the remaining spot will be decided by a conclusive match between Kasva and Barles that both ended up making it all the way to the deciding matches in the qualification stage. We are currently finding a date and time very soon in which this match is going to be played.
