The International YoYo Federation has issued a new ruling on how Multi-National events will seed to the 2015 World YoYo Contest as well as all future World YoYo Contests. This does affect the upcoming Las Vegas Open!
Previously for WYYC14 Champions were seeded to the FINALS of the World Yo-Yo Contest.
Starting with World Yo-Yo Contest 2015 the Top 3 will instead be seeded to the SEMI-FINAL of WYYC15.
EYYC (Poland), AP (Singapore), Las Vegas Open (United States) and Latin America (Mexico) are the qualifying Multi-National Contests for WYYC15.
Not only EYYC, AP and Pan-America, but in the near future, we see a strong possibility of other regions being able to host their own MNC. Therefore, in order to accommodate all MNCs to be seeded to the World Contest, IYYF has decided to seed the MNC winners to the semi-finals instead. Furthermore, we value the quality of skill and performance of the top placing winners of MNCs and have decided to seed the top 3 from each division of all MNCs.
