    From their tweets, I get the impression a lot of athletes were genuinely excited to be part of this, so there may be potential for the meet to gain momentum.

    w1500 did not follow that script.

    Definitely not as lopsided, although I believe Europe would still be likely to win. Just out of interest, I did a simulation based on this year's outdoor SBs, excluding the relays (hard to tell how to simulate those) and including the 5000 instead of 3000 (since a lot of top athletes don't have proper SBs in the latter). The result was actually US coming out marginally on top with a score of 632.5-625.5. But with some of those top US marks coming from NCAA athletes, who are no longer in that sort of shape (think Sha'Carri Richardson), that should be enough to tip the scales in Europe's favor. But it would be a close match.

    The answer to the question will be absolutely answered in Doha - score the Euro vs. USA placings as a separate contest. I would have to expect the Euros to win.

    Not possible under these rulea, since the US will not have 4 athletes in most events, and Europe as a whole will have a lot more in most.

    True, so typical dual meet scoring (at least at the NCAA level here in the USA) should apply; 5-3-1 and 5-0 for relays.

    Yes, that was my assumption: true dual meet scoring: 5-3-1/5-0 R
