Just wondering if anyone has felt that the high ranking teams at Vex Worlds are mostly Chinese teams. I know there are many non - Chinese teams that are high ranked but many are Chinese.
For example, last year for ITZ, the Middle School Finals Matches had China against China. The High School Matches had China/Canada against Canada/USA. The VexU Matches were China against USA. So out of the 10 teams in the finals, 6 of them were Chinese. After the world champions were determined, 4 out of 5 of them were Chinese, 5225A being the only non - Chinese team.
This year for TP, there was a similar outcome. The MS Finals had China against China/USA. The HS Finals had China against China/USA and VexU had China against USA. Out of the 10 finals teams 7 were Chinese and out of the 5 finalist teams 3 were Chinese.
I’m not trying to target Chinese teams here but it does seem a little strange that there are so many high ranking, world champion Chinese teams. And for some world champion teams, that was their first year even existing. Take team 7671C, Shadowless Chicken, for example, this was their first year ever doing Vex and they won the Middle School world championships. Vex DB Page: https://vexdb.io/teams/view/7671C
I want to know your opinions on this topic.
