So, no invites for any team at any time?
How big are the qualifiers? Surely you cant invite teams to the qualifiers (would be like inviting to the event) so it must be open for all, say 256/512 teams maybe?
Now do this for every event, would not be possible to fit all this into a schedule and still give teams time to practice and develope strats.
I agree that North should be at the event, but at the cost of the IMT (now RNG) spot. Why do you overrate Mouz so hard?
How are the rankings not totally objective? It's a points system based on the results of each team, sure you can have opinions about the valuation of different events, but all teams compete under exactly the same conditions. Do you know what objective means?
