Well every continent have 1 spot except Europe, it's not our fault that only 2 teams from Oceania applied.

That was general idea, but for the next year we gonna try to expand Asia, or host a lan TWC Asian Quals.

regarding that matter, it would be better to have a ME Qualifier 'lan or online' , and a SE Asia one because of the pings and making other opportunities ;)
