2011-04-27 04:42
RAGE wont participate cause they are not 5 players from 1 country dude
2011-04-27 10:05
RAGE is swe 3 players are swedish(MODDII,BARRBAR,pronax) 2 players are norw then, RAGE can participate in the qualy
2011-04-28 12:35
in WCG all 5 players need 2 b from the same country
2011-04-28 18:50
i think there is mistake with who will play vs who cause there is no Online Qualifier #1, 1st Place
2011-04-27 04:43

2011-04-27 04:46
But RAGE have players from different nationalities, whereas in WCG full team must be from 1 country!
2011-04-27 06:01
correct
2011-04-27 10:05
and not fnatic?
2011-04-27 13:36
yes cause PITA isn't swedish i think !
2011-04-27 13:51
Pita is Swedish his just trying to be patriotic.

2011-04-27 06:46
PK& ;D ~~ SK gaming
2011-04-27 07:31
#30, #28 and other , in RAGE 2 player from Norway, and they can not play WCG ( in team everyone should be a nationality )
2011-04-27 07:48
Please tell me that's not a single elimination lan bracket where SK would play fnatic in the semi final and not the final?
2011-04-27 07:50
dont think so just first round matches i guess. All i know is it's bo3. Could even be Double Elim (since it is at IOL) wouldnt take that long pani would know if he's reading :D
2011-04-27 08:03
fury will play ;D?
2011-04-27 07:57

2011-04-27 08:57
googoogooo Lions!
2011-04-27 09:11
I'm just curious but who decided that SK fnatic and Lions can proceed to final phase without going through the online qualifier? Is it based on previous achievements or general reputation?
2011-04-27 09:20
guess so, maybe they are just concedered the most firm teams,
2011-04-27 10:57
gogo limbokungen!!
2011-04-27 10:22
goodluck LIONS nikoinho ;)))
2011-04-27 10:50
iGamez?? huggan is not swedish? pita is swedish?
2011-04-27 10:51
Even though pita is from Bosnia, he is still citizen of Sweden.
2011-04-27 11:31
and i think huggan too :O
2011-04-27 13:34
don't know who he is anyway, but yeah probably.
2011-04-28 00:00
i think they are swedish citizens both of them..but for some reason have other flags here on HLTV...i think they want it...but it is still wrong and just confusing. If you live in Sweden and is a swedish citizen...you should have a swedish flag...no matter wich country their parents are from or where they are born....but just my opinion :).
2011-04-27 20:18
go go fnatic ;)

2011-04-27 11:14
rg have to qualify online? lol
2011-04-27 11:32
2 of their players are Norwegian (Kalle and Tacky) and cannot play WCG for Sweden. So unless they use fill-in's they probably won't play at all. Using fill-ins justifies the non seed.
2011-04-27 11:34
What a stupid rule ò_ó
2011-04-27 11:42
it's not silly, it's been the rule for as long as WCG exists. It's no different to WorldCup or Olympics. Just like C.Ronaldo cannot play for Spain (even though his club is Spanish).
2011-04-27 11:56
Bah, u're right, but still stupid :(
2011-04-27 12:06
you will see moddii & barbar in other teams fo shore :P and I will participate too. Cu there guys !

2011-04-27 19:41
Hope the SK organisation will swallow their pride and add Gux for WCG.
2011-04-27 19:51
yea i hate this dennis guy in SK lineup
2011-04-27 21:13
I kinda do to, hes not that bad but it just annoys me that a semi-elite guy are in the middle of those names when SK could bring in a more routined player, and win some tournaments instead of wasting some victories due to that they have to "train" dennis into a elite player so to speak.
2011-04-28 12:10
LOL.. not gonna happen dude =D
