Was gonna say ez 4 order but then realized they are probably at Katowice right now. I don't think Order will have time to play the open qualifiers since they weren't invited like TyLoo. Oh well, GL to Tainted Minds and GH.

God damn they that bad that you willing to play with 200 ping?
2018-02-22 13:59
Actually yes man and ping is more like 130 to nearest ESEA servers and FaceIT ones are in singapore so I'm cool but sostronk is bad stuff mate.
2018-02-22 14:54
just because its bad for you , doesnt mean its bad for everyone.
2018-02-23 08:25
Fair enough. The Singapore server of SoStronk is ass cancer then. I dunno about your chennai or mumbai or even those dubai or kazakh servers but singapore one is ass cancer
2018-02-23 09:01

Sweden DEFENSE! 
They will not and it sucks. Always the same teams getting free invites to the qualifiers, and African teams never get a chance.
2018-02-23 06:36
how does africa feature in ASIA qualifiers? Also african teams have got chances before,could not come up with anything.Valve tried prmoting india and africa in 2014-15,nothing happened.
2018-02-23 08:26
yeh but the problem is india didnt have much exprience going to that major , here in north africa we play with 50 / 60 ping against europeans and we got exprience its just isnt enough to qualify since they are still playing with 60 ping and 70 vs 10 and 5 and its worth a shot since the community in north africa is quite big
2018-02-23 11:00
yeh thats kinda sad , maybe bravado will prove them wrong and then maybe an org will consider investing or creating some sort of tournaments in north africa and south africa

Since Bravado has moved to America now, they will only play in American leagues and tournaments, which IMO is quite a restriction. Still better than playing solely in South Africa, though.
2018-02-23 18:23
yeh but then maybe other orgs will see that african teams do have a talent and maybe they will invest in that particular region
