+1, as a native English speaker I love seeing people from other countries using the language. It has some pretty funny results sometimes, but I'm glad people aren't afraid to attempt to articulate their ideas. International's broken grammar can cause them to be more concise and, in my opinion, can sometimes allow them to get their point across more effectively.

Esea news article says "The Indian team ATE notified ESL about their inability to attend the Global Challenge event in New York City recently." It doesn't say why they can't attend, but it was their choice not something ESL did.

azn played in their esea matches but isn't listed on their team for this lan and if i remember right, che didn't play in their esea matches so che's most likely azn's stand in perhaps because azn lives in hawaii, so that'd be an expensive trip for him
2011-10-12 07:10
its a NYC mix they are all great guys and fun to play with. some of them have played multiple seasons of esea-invite which is the highest league in North America. They could be deadly and make some close games and possibly win one but it will be very hard for them being a last minute thing =]

iem GZ 2 china's teams iem NY 4 US's teams plus a south america's one wtf oooohh immunity i remember that but 4 local teams seem too much
2011-10-12 04:00
1 reply
it's in a sense funny to call the 4 us teams local. i mean that honestly, as i chuckled when i read it. frod lives in tx, 2700+ km from where IEM is; n0thing is even farther at 4500+ km. in comparison, at sec, m5 wasn't a 'local' team, but moscow is only 1100+ km from warsaw, less than 1/4 the distance n0thing will travel. of course sweden to guangzhou is like 8000 km, so it doesn't quite match the distance euro teams traveled to get to iem gc. but i agree with you that it would be more interesting to see more big teams there to then compete with one another, or at least a more diverse set of teams, like if ate or m5 had made it. i imagine this will go like arbalet dallas did. an interesting side effect of this, though, will be to see how the us teams play. in their last lan, EG mentioned they basically worked off a default and called things on the fly instead of running strats because the us scene is small enough that it's easy for teams to memorize anything their strats, being as static as they are by definition. so, it will be interesting to see if they play non-us teams entirely differently than us teams, and to compare their success in each.
