Likely won't participate in an online worlds, as I would not consider that to be Worlds, but rather "Online Worlds" or "GEMP Worlds". Gemp SWCCG is a different game than IRL SWCCG so in no way are they interchangeable. I found parts of the online MPC to be a farce (the "dq" for one), despite how great it was from the PC:s side to hold such an event with short notice and under worrying cirumstances irl, so it worries me a lot to have the most important tournament on gemp
2x.

If we are assuming a spring 2021 = “pandemic restrictions” are gone, why not just push worlds 2020 to spring 2021 and then have worlds 2021 remain in the fall? Two worlds in the same calandar year seems weird at first but it’s really isn’t.

That's kind of an optimistic assumption that it'll go away by then. :(

Online worlds isn't in person worlds.

But it's better than no worlds.

Are we going to die, if we go one year without worlds/euros? I highly doubt.

I'm not against online events, but they shouldn't be irl ones taken online.

Agree with what Joe said... and if it's explicitly and constantly called "Online Worlds", I think that effectively differentiates it from IRL competition in the fewest words possible, so it doesn't get conflated with IRL SWCCG before, during and after the event takes place :-D

Agreed.

This feels eerily similar to the original if it is worlds by Decipher, then it doesn't count.

Online will never equal in person. Just because something is different though doesn't automatically make it inferior.

Personally, I'd rather have something than nothing. I'd rather not let the virus claim something else from us. Otherwise, lets just announce the PotY and Worlds 2020 winner is COVID-19.

I slightly lean making it not count as real worlds and just not having worlds this year.

Either way it's choosing between 2 * options so i wont complain. I'll be playing in it regardless.

I'm not speaking officially, but I'm pretty sure there won't be a Europeans this year online. We don't really care about crowning a champion that much. Camraderie, beers and having fun is more important. A Euro online MPC is fine, but I would not support actual Euros online.
Exactly how I feel. I just didn't find the time to put the words together. :)
