It worked easier because there were 16 groups - Pot 1 were big-hitters, and the rest were seeded geographically by continents (crampled up together in a way that they fit the number of 16).PeacefulAnarchy on Oct 22 2017, 07:00:00 PM wrote:How did the seeding/draw work last time?
Now it's a problem because there's 12 groups, and to Europe objectively belong 8 slots in the Pot 1. But then there's roughly 16 countries left, and they have to be allocated to 12x12x12. How to do that?
That's why I suggested splitting it in four pieces, this time stronger batch of Europe / stronger batch of RoW / weaker of the Europe / weaker of the RoW.
