These regions are Chinese Taipei, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore/Malaysia/Philippines, Korea, America/Europe, Mainland China, and Japan. AWC 2019 is Japan’s first time to participate since the server was established last November 2018.
Here is a list of the teams confirmed to represent their respective regions or servers for Arena of Valor World Cup 2019 according to Liquipedia:

Global Ban Pick Mode
As previously stated, AWC 2019 will implement a “Global Ban Pick Mode” from the knockout stage onward. Global BP prohibits the same hero from being played more than once in a match by the same team. Heroes that were previously picked by teams will be automatically banned in the remaining matches.
Both Tencent Games and Garena believe that implementing this rule will increase gameplay and hero pick diversity.
