Weekly matches, bye weeks, sounds kinda cool, huh!? Season 3 is going to be fun! Can't wait!

I just checked how much it would cost me if I want to go to the season 2 championship :

~350$ for the flight.
~100$ of the hotels
Price of the ticket for the tournament. (My guess is around 50$)

So that's ~500$ and I didn't eat, paid for taxi/bus to move around the city just yet !

That's kind of disappointing that people like me will never be able to actually go to those event.
I went to 2 LAN event in my life, it was the most awsome experience for a gamer I ever had.

I like eSport so much, it's one of the thing that passionate me the most right now. I follow every single tournament and event of LoL and some other games too.

I'm really sad that I will never be able to make it so the Season 2 championship, or even the season 3 one since it will most likely still be in LA.

Man, super bummed that it's not a one weekend event... I was planning on attending, but I don't think I can take an entire week off, or fly across the country twice :/ .

LoL website, using only twitch as backend? As I wrote, the twitch flash player is a horrible CPU hog for me, so either own3d or even a non-flash way of streaming (html5?) as backup/alternative would be really, really nice.

We aren't ignoring any region - it takes time for a competitive professional scene to develop. Once it does, we'll look to include them in the Championship Series.
The reason there is no professional scene in Oceania is no local servers, even the best can only play at a certain level with 200+ms

This HD stream - presumably you can watch it in lower quality, like 360p?

My net sucks

Not that the format isn't cool it's just that I know I will not be able to afford to go both weekends and I was really looking forward to going.. Now I will have to decide between seeing all of my favorite teams or just the finals..
