The amount of work that some teams have to put up to even get to the major is insane. For example PENTA: - they had to play Europe Minor Qualifier to qualify for Minor, - then they played the Minor to qualify to Major Qualifier, - and now they have to play Major Qualifier to qualify for a Major itself... probably just to get out in groups. But at least they still get the stickers.
