MYM Absent for SMM

MYM announces on their website that they will not attend SMM this year due to financial difficulties.

It appears that for MYM, the cost of attending SMM plus other expenses such as food and accommodation is greater than the first prize money they would get if they ever managed to win the tournament. A reasonable sponsor would not fund them given the circumstances. MYM's rough spending estimation for SMM would be about $8,000 to $10,000 (USD) according to their website.

One of the main reasons for not attending, according to MYM|DeMoN is because of air tickets expenses:

Quote from MYM's forum, MYM|DeMoN:

"Last year SMM was announced about 2 months before the actual event so they were able to buy the tickets early. This time, it was announced 2 weeks before the event, so ticket prices went up by double. It's mainly the flight tickets which is the biggest problem.."
