How about a new format like the one in Europe where you have also a "B" and a "C" Championship for developing countries.
I would propose a 12-team "A" and the rest in "B" Championship.
After witnessing this year's and the past games, blow-out victories over pretty weak opponents don't help to grow but are demoralizing for players.
Nations like Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Uzbekistan and so on, could learn how to build up without the fear of getting blown-out.
Also, the level of play in "A" would be by far better and more challenging.
What do you think?
