Is there a stream?


And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

Intercontinental Playoff

CONCACAF #4 vs. AFC #5
Oceania vs. CONMEBOL #5

So CONMEBOL practically guaranteed a win, CONCACAF/AFC is probably the most fair playoff

Extra spot for the South Americans, which I applaud.

The other play-off should indeed be more competitive.

Good. This makes sense for a change.

IMO it should always be CONCACAF vs CONMEBOL and OFC vs AFC for those playoffs, nothing else as at least one of the ties would be a mismatch with any other possible pairing. Just compare the 2010 playoffs with the 2014 ones, massive difference in competitiveness.

CONMEBOL's fifth team has a walkover win with that draw, the other tie will be more of a match up but it could have been better I think.

we should not even have this half place. Europe should have it, as our coefficient in sucess rates are much higher.

And yes, we should play Oceania EVERY TIME:smileani:

The standard of Asian (and Oceanian) football are really low compared to CONMEBOL, CONCACAF or even UEFA. (I am an Asian here, so no bias).

Only Iran, Japan, South Korea and Australia have a realistic chance of competing with the European/African/N/S American teams (Saudi, NZ tends to fluke/choke).
Other nations such as Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Iraq, Kuwait, UAE or even Uzbekistan, North Korea and China simply not good enough for the World Cup. European nobody, Kazakhstan was supposed to be an contender in Asia until they make their brain fart protesting the AFC in 2002.
None of the countries in South Asia or South East Asia have the physical/technical skills even with foreign mercenaries.

The other Oceania rep (either Tahiti or Solomon) simply a joker in any game.

4th CONCACAF (Honduras, Panama, El Salvador, Guatemala, Trinidad/Tobago, Canada or Jamaica) and 5th CONMEBOL (any SA teams that's not Brazil/Argentina) simply too strong for them.

South America is the most competitive qualifying section, with anybody (literally) (in their decent day) could go to Moscow.

My ideal should be like this,
host (1)
UEFA 9 groups (9 winners, 4 play-off winner)
CAF 5 groups (5 winners)
AFC 2 groups (2 winners, 2 runners-up, 5th team playoff vs OFC winner)
OFC (play-off vs 5th Asia)
CONCACAF 1 group -hexagon- (best 3 qualified, 4th team playoff vs 5th South American team)
CONMEBOL 1 group -royal rumble- (best 4 qualified, 5th team vs 4th CONCACAF)

Why? For Africa, only 5 teams: Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon and Algeria could be considered as World Cup material currently.

For Asia, explained before, only 4 teams realistically have potential to bite.

None for Oceania.

In CONCACAF, only USA, Mexico and Costa Rica have the quality.

For CONMEBOL and UEFA, 4 (or 5) and 13 kinda the lower limit for their continental reputation. Any lower, simply an abomination. Historically both confederations are the only confederations that have had won the World Cup trophy.
