qualis are online, would be hard to figure out a server where both sides have a fair ping
2018-11-12 23:14
but there are national qualifiers so thats really irrelevant. NVM re-read the article

teams qualified from eachh national qualifier will play each other online, the 3 best teams + one moroccan team will play at the LAN
2018-11-12 23:17
Ye I re-read the article and noticed that, hence the edit
2018-11-13 00:08
eswc doesent want anything to do with south africa anymore since last year a south africa org hosted eswc qualifers with out saying anything to eswc and it became a nutshell so thats why eswc ignored inviting or making a qual for them

There's enough people in Nigeria for at least one team though right? Surely there must be at least 5 Nigerians who play CS?:D
2018-11-13 01:44
I'm not really sure because I have encountered people from Réunion which is the French island next to Madagascar in MM which was surprising but never played with Nigerian or Senegalese players, only 1 from Ivory Coast & I asked him if CS is big in his country and he said people don't play FPS that much, only fighting & football games like SF, PES & FIFA.
