Would it be feasible to combine the OC/Rest of Asia region with the TW/HK/MO/JP region? I don't imagine ping being too bad between all the countries involved (KR vs EU is played on NA), and I'd imagine that this would provide for a more competitive regional finals and a stronger representative in the season finals.
If this new region were to have 1 guaranteed spot, then Korea would be a reasonable recipient of the reallocated spot, as players like Rogue, Zest, Dark, and more have failed to qualify for the season finals partially due to Korea only having 6 total spots.
And if this new region were to keep its 2 spots then the most likely result is more Has
To clarify: My first topic post on tl.net, been following SC2 for quite a few years but recently created this account. I'm open to any feedback like if the post isn't appropriate for SC2 General, etc.
As for the post itself, it isn't intended to bash the OCE region, player base or the specific representatives not mentioned by name. It's only to ask a question that I don't believe I've seen posted (feel free to link if it has), and to provide some suggestions in the interests of competitiveness and a better viewing experience. I'm well aware that ESL/DH has the final say in the matter.
