That's 4 Asian teams in WG2 qualifying... good odds of at least one all-Asian tie...

there can only be one at most. WG2 losers can't play each other, they must face one of the teams that's moving up

There's no provision in the rules that say that!

(a) A Draw will be made by the Fed Cup Committee no later than ten (10) days after the conclusion of the World Group II first round.

(b) Choice of ground for all these Ties shall be determined at the same time.

(c) Seeds
Four (4) Nations shall be seeded. Their selection shall be made by the Fed Cup Committee taking into consideration the ranking of players likely to participate, experience on different surfaces, previous performance in the Competition, experience in doubles and other pertinent criteria. The complete Draw shall be sent within seven (7) days to all Nations included in the draw.

The seeded teams have not been decided yet.
Normally, the comitee selects the seeds one day before the draw. They may be all 4 WG2 losers, but it's not automatic.

it seemed as though asia was blooming, but of course so many top players are missing in the fed-cup tourny.
