At this moment it has become absolutely clear that there will only be direct promotions in the lower divisions (see any leaguepage and promotion.asp). I'm not sure I have the time now to modify the page properly [[User:GM-Lau|GM-Lau]] 12:46, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Revision as of 14:46, 23 April 2006

Does the 2nd in Div 8 really play a qualifier? Until now i thought otherwise and i do not find a hint in the editorial which interpretation is correct.

/Mjoelnir

Well, just consider the number of divisions at each level:
V - 256 divisions (x2 = 512 auto-demoting from 7th or 8th and 512 playing qualifier)
VI - 1024 divisions (#1 makes up 1024 teams, so 512 play qualifiers and 512 auto-promote) (x2 = 2048 teams auto-demoting, 2048 teams w/ qualifier)
VII - 1024 divisions (#1 makes up 1024 teams who auto-promote, #2 is 1024 teams who also auto-promote, then 2048 from 3 and 4 who have a qualifier) (x2 = 2048 auto-demoting, 2048 w/ qualifier)
VIII - 2048 divisions (#1 = 2048 teams, #2 = 2048 teams)

So, you would assume that all the #1s would auto-promote and all the #2s would play a qualifier, as is done with the 1-2s and 3-4s now. But, no, this hasn't been confirmed, I just thought it was by far the most logical conclusion. -Catalyst 23:15:49, 2006-03-29 (UTC)

In a german (language, not nationality) conference a swiss GM said that no relegation matches will take place. That was posted in an FAQ thread, so i consider this to be information coming directly from HTs and to be checked by his colleagues for accuracy. You can find it here (5591227.1), although you would need a translator or to be able to understand german.
