    so we now have even MORE divisions.

    also- regarding open level 5, this is previous level 5r (I believe?) and is now a worlds division


    Thoughts?

    FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE PROBABLY GOING TO READ AND GET REALLY CONFUSED.

    5R is now 5. (and 5 is not a Worlds level anymore to my knowledge)

    5 is new 6.

    6 is new 7.

    and 7 ate 9.

    Pretty much what was expected, so no surprises there. No idea how long it's going to take me to get used to seeing level 7 though lol.

    5 will be an IASF worlds level, but not USASF. At least at the moment.

    There were 14 in 2018. That's nearly double in 2 years.

    My understanding is also that US teams will not be allowed to enter the IASF level 5 divisions. Craziness all over the place. Consistent from 2008-2018, then the floodgates open. It is worth noting that the industry didn't suddenly double in size over the last couple of years. IASF and USASF are now mostly split from each other, and my assumption is their revenue comes from teams that enter their specific divisions - so there is a race to offer as many as possible to entice teams to go to their side.


    Year - # of World Champions
    2004 2
    2005 4
    2006 6
    2007 8
    2008 12
    2009 11
    2010 12
    2011 11
    2012 11
    2013 10
    2014 10
    2015 10
    2016 12
    2017 12
    2018 14
    2019 20
    2020 26

    That would make a "hockey stick" graph with the tomfoolery in 2019-20.

    I can't imagine how nuts it's going to be that weekend. It's already crazy having all those teams there (and it's technically 2 levels, not counting specific all girl/coed and then the team sizes on top of that) so adding a third along with that.....ESPN and the parks is going to be especially crazy.

    I really wish we’d go back to

    small all girl & coed
    Medium all girl & coed
    Large all girl & coed
    International open 5 all girl & coed
    International open 6 all girl & coed

    in my opinion that was all the divisions we needed

    Unpopular opinion: I actually do not mind having the NT divisions.

    Except that it isn't more teams or more bids (although I expect that is coming). It is just more winners.
