I cannot seem to find the page I read this on, but they've changed the way the game's being organized this year. Instead of being narrowed down to two teams, every team will play every other team twice over the course of this month ("double round-robin" play). I assume whichever team has the highest overall "score" (and who knows how TNT is calculating that) will be the winner.
The explanation of 'double-round-robin' is at the bottom of this page:
This makes it fairer than playoffs, as we can be certain that the four teams to make it to the finals / semis are the four best teams against ALL other opponents, not just a random selection.
The team to win will be the one with the BEST players, not the MOST players. I predict that HW and DC will do less well this year because newbies to the game will see that they did well last year, assume they are 'good teams' and then pull down the average. Another way to look at it is to work out what type of person makes a good Yooyuball player, and then think what land they'd support. Personally, I think the reason three 'evil' (less kiddy) lands and one 'underdog' land got to the semis last year is because they were chosen by more adult players, who probably get higher Yooyuball scores on average than kids.
EDIT: Wow, the last four posters were all RI supporters. If PPT is supporting Roo Island, I have a good feeling about our chances.
