WCA still tries to be the WCG. Problem: They suck in paying off (takes them up to 200 days or more) + bound to host in 3rd grade chinese city Yinchuan. But doesnt matter, it is still the biggest Warcraft III event and thus I am happy it exists.

There might only be 1 or 2 teams here who get paid to play/salary/wage and all you guys can do is moan about how much prize money a small scale tournament has. We're lucky that there is money for any tournament and if they can fund this type of prize money and help out smaller scale teams to become professional so they can have the time and develop their skill sets to compete/beat/lift world counterstrike to new heights. be positive plz.
