I agree BIG should get invited as a representative of locals fanbase and I admire the fact organizers only did it for one team. It shows how big this event is- unlike Rio for example that invited 70% br teams.
I just think the criticism to organizers inviting teams that haven't won semifinals or finals but still brought a lot of repercussion, viewers and ticketing is empty and pointless. I also think this very same criticism being made against mibr and not Nip is hypocrite and cringy, as if there were any noticeable difference in their performance the last year.
You will see me support teams like nip, big and vitality PLAYING AGAINST mibr because I like these teams, but don't expect me to agree with your absence of reasons to try to trigger Brazilians or to actually want mibr out.
