This seems to have gone off the original topic now, maybe intentionally????
The concern was the team event and having to qualify for what was originally an OPEN competition.
Have the original WFTF rules been changed to make the priority a Team Event? If not then are the rules not being broken?
I do realise there is a time constraint and how many people can be accomodated in the competition with there being 30 countries involved, but not many are capable of sending any more than 4 people, never mind a full team of 8 (let alone that many won't be able to afford the trip which rules more out)
