The teams are always the continental champions from that year plus the host nation (Japan) and one wild card.

Is this new to the tournament?

"Participating teams will have to feature eight players out of 14 from the last World Grand Prix and six players out of 12 from the last Olympic Games. Teams will register 21 players six weeks before the beginning of the competition, bringing that list down to 18 players four weeks before the beginning of the competition and down to 14 players at two days before the start of play."

How does this work with players retiring or taking a year off from their national team?

I just did some math for the 12 Teams in Group 1. I took the FIVB World Rankings after the Olympics and added the numbers together to show which teams would have the toughest schedule.

Lowest numbers mean hardest schedules
1. China 51 (USA 2x, Russia 2x, Italy 2x)
2T. Belgium 53 (Brazil 2x, Netherlands 2x)
2T. Russia 53 (China 2x)
4. Italy 58 (China 2x, USA 2x, Turkey 2x)
5. Japan 60 (Serbia 2x, Thailand 2x)
6. USA 62 (China 2x, Italy 2x)
7. Thailand 64 (Japan 2x, Dominican Rep 2x)
8. Turkey 65 (Italy 2x)
9. Serbia 68 (Brazil 2x, Japan 2x)
10. Brazil 79 (Belgium 2x, Serbia 2x)
11. Netherlands 81 (Dominican Rep. 2x, Belgium 2x)
12. Dominican Rep. 89 (Netherlands 2x, Thailand 2x)

CUZ CUB is not wealthy thus it isn't attractive for those high priests commanding the governing body.

It is so painful to see dawn of such a volleyball powerhouse in only a decade :thumbdown: A jewel such as Vargas should be playing in the international level. I hope she would at least play in CL with Prostejov this season
