(3) Contest Council for China mandates the present host teams

I think the rule is not fair. It gives foreigners more chance to WF.

I want to ask an important question concerning point 6): If a team from Taiwan (or, resp. Hong Kong) get the Champion in a Chinese site, will it be qualified to the World Finals, in case there are a total of >= 3 (resp. >= 1) teams from Taiwan (resp. Hong Kong) qualifying from any other sites?
