This is the major
2018-01-13 17:30
It's the qualifier...
2018-01-13 17:31
No it's not LOL They rebranded this to the major. This is part of the major now and the major has 3 stages - Minor Challanger Stage 24 Teams - Returning Challanger Stage 16 Teams - Legends Stage 8 Teams THIS whole thing is the major now, and the qualifiers are now ex-Minors

2018-01-13 17:36
It's nice that you (and the other one) think that this is the major. I'm sure quantum bellator and avangar (and others) appreciate that some people think they are major teams and not just teams that barely made it out the local qualifier for the major qualifier.

maybe this will be the major where flipside wont qualify. :( Edit: 3rd again :((
2018-01-13 17:27
Nah, they got this, they will go 2-3 and be the 9th team to qualify
2018-01-13 17:27
Maybe. Anyways i think it's kinda unfair that you get a second chance even though you should have been eliminated from the tournament.
2018-01-13 17:28
I mean, they can't have 15 teams, otherwise one team gets a free 1-0 advantage over the others, so they just give all of the 2-3 teams another chance.
2018-01-13 17:29
Yeah i know. There is nothing you can really do about it. It's just sad that these visa issues make teams that didn't deserve the spot get them.
