    wtf? TNC directly invited but not mineski? bravo organiser==
    • Cristy "Pandoradota2" Ramadani ,
      There was info about this a few weeks ago. The organizers invited each of the top placing teams from each region that participated in TI7... so Infamous (for SA), TnC (for SEA) etc as 6 of their 8 direct invites plus 2 more direct invites of their choice.
    • earl "chubByliTs" kevvin ,
      I know you like mineski and you have your own biases just like everyone else , you've got to be subjective with the situation. Invites were announced a few weeks right after TI7 or around the time Mineski formed their latest roster, so why would the organizers invite them over, say, a locally more popular team, with credible performance in the latest TI, like TNC? Instead of hating, i suggest you just enjoy the event. it's only once or twice a year events are held in the Philippines and whether you like them or not, they produce some of the best events in the dota 2 community.
  • Floyd "Moneymay" Mayweather ,
    Aint this the tournament organized by a scam group? Such a waste.
    • James "Yared" A ,
      Indeed sad if true but more information can be found on the internet. And that group has allegedly bought a good share of this site! : (
