Asia has not hosted since 2011, so that may be a possibility. I think that South Africa - and countries such as Tunisia in Africa - are unlikely, given the small(er) amount of cubers there. I think that Oceania may be a possibility. As it has produced 2 cubers who are incredibly influential in todays community (Feliks and Jay), and has still not hosted a worlds, it might happen. I know that it is quite far away from... well everything else, but who knows?
That' called foreshadowing:)

I am expecting a few WRs. Max Park will probably get one or two. I want to see multi-blind record broken as well. One-handed needs to be broken. It has been too long.

What's the probability that Max will win 3-7? Erik says 50/50 in the stream.

Max’s chance of being world champion in 3 are 50/50. He has really tight competition from Feliks, Patrick, and Tymon, as well as multiple other fast cubers. So to answer your above question, I agree with Erik.
