The FIVB destroyed the World Championship by keeping the records of the first round for the second round! This way, most teams have no plausible chance to promote to round 3, including Russia and France!!!!

Re: @Sorin Acela
Agree!!! In addition to that, first round groups were UNBALANCED. For instance, Group A consists of really weak teams: Italy, Slovenia, Dom. Rep., Arg, Japan and Belgium!!! On the other hand, Pool C has SERBIA, USA and RUSSIA, most probably ITALY would have lost against all of these 3 teams. This is UNFAIR! Teams should not be charged with their first round performances because of this obvious unbalanced groups!! AGAIN, CROOKED FIVB!!!

maybe it's time to reward constant performance and results throughout the whole championship instead of last games

Re: @former_player --- Can't you understand that the teams that reach the 'last games', do that because of their previous results??? :)
But this system kills the show and the competition. Most teams are already virtually eliminated. Why keep on playing? Just go home ;)

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply

WCH 2018 W: All six teams are known for Third round

If Russia had won the match even in 5 sets they would have classified because they would have ended up with same number of victories than us but one more point. So before the last set against China ended USA was not classified Reply
