Checking in for my annual spectator participation as someone who never plays DOTA 2 but loves TI.

The Wild Card qualifiers start tomorrow right?

open qualifiers, yeah

From SEA There is a Raven/NothingToSay/Xepher/Velo/Mushi stack (called GeekFam, likely to go pretty far) and a Korea/Australia stack: QO/Lose/lordboonz/snow/Reisen (called Oracle, not likely to go far)

Not yet. Universe and Mason also haven't registered yet

Mushi is my favorite guy so this seems like an easy choice. Only one bonus team is coming out of each region for the last six spots right? But there's like a really uneven number of participants in all the regions?

Yes and yes, but only for opens. Regionals have the same number of teams (8) for each region, although they arrive at that total in different ways

It’s a Korean, two Koreans who might currently be living in Canada, a Thai (23savage), and Gunnar. They could also be in NA, but I don’t why you’d have a problem with them being in SEA.

Forev is korean and played for J.Storm. He lives in the USA.
March is Korean / Canadian, played for J.Storm, and lives in CA.
Gunnar is a NA pubstar who lives in the USA.
Febby is Korean (/American?) who plays NA pubs and lives in the USA.

etc. taking a regional spot with a non-regional team is bad-faith globalism and I can’t stand it!!!!

I guess Korea is included in SEA? They’re hardly pinoy or Malaysian...

Oh, yeah, SEA is understood to just mean basically everything east of Iran that isn’t behind the Great Firewall.

Edit: I don’t know if there are actually any Iranian DOTA players, but I have no idea where they’d play. I just mean that west of there would probably play in Europe unless they were in some former Soviet state. Valve probably has a formal definition somewhere.
