as always they say "Asia" you enter the site and they mean "south-east asia" not even a small tournament for West-Asia.
2016-07-22 14:14
Ping problem I think?
2016-07-22 14:31
West Asian Qualifier for West Asian countries only then the winner Qualifies for the tournament instead of playing on 400 ping for the South-east Asian teams.

Even if you are on Asian continent, you are different region CSGO since we do not play same, SEA play with East Asia, tournament only for this range. Make your own tournament =)
2016-07-24 05:57
then they have to consider saying "a tournament for SEA" , not a tournament for Asia since they abandon more than half of the continent right away

It's not for SEA, it's for East Asia too, which is not part of SEA. It's not even hosted in SEA.

wtf to reverse 1 out of 4 slots for your relatively unknown region? except risky?
2016-07-24 12:42
why not to add the slot without deleting any other ones and btw : you only know risky because the biggest chance given to the region was for 1 team , and risky got that one, you'll notice more talents if a bigger chance was given
2016-07-24 13:35
Because they need time for other games as well, CSGO is the main game but there are other games have to be played during the weekend at the centre
