Not entirely sure I understand this: The invitations are going to be based on blizzard's TR qualifier(s)?


Sounds interesting if that's the case.

From the post it sounds like it will be based off live realms, which is extremely fucking stupid.

This is a little confusing... are they saying the top 1000 teams of the tr? or live? and what about the top 2? is it meaning the top 2 currently on live from each bg or what

Reading the FAQ, it looks like the top 1000 teams from the Blizzard qualifier are invited to another ladder based server for the CGS qualifier. I could have read it wrong though.
