Why are you people saying only a NA team can pass? The post and the website of the event clearly specifiy its an American team, meaning Central America and South America can participate as well.

Once IEM comes to NA they'll have 4-5 teams asian 1-2 and europe 1-2. Also I don't know why some people are complaining about the cost to go to tournaments thats what sponsors are for CLG and TSM have sponsors, Razor, TTesports Bigfoot ect they should be paying the trip fees to get there products promoted. Sk-Gaming, FnaticMSI, Millenium are all gaming companies this is why Europe gets 2 spots because they have more sponsored teams.

What? Can it be even easier? You just click the blue "Qualifier" under the LoL section and it takes you to the actual qualifier site, then you just click on "sign-up". You need to have a an ESL account with a joined LoL team ofc.

I hate to be a **** but looking at past tournaments/qualifiers, why would people expect a Central or South American team to win it when there's hardly any presence in competitive play. The well known teams from the Americas are North American, but nobody is saying that they can't compete I believe, there's always surprises.

League of Legends, baby's first eSport.

How can people even be surprised about teams having to pay to get to tournaments or the number of slots allocated per nation relative to where the tournament is being hosted. It's always been this way.
