While the tourney is nice and money is good I don't understand why it has to be: [u]"you need to have at least 2450 current rating, people with rank 1 titles can also apply[/u]"
I understand that it's made so that you don't waste time on low rated players, but shouldn't there be a way for some non"famous" people to participate in this tourney or any tourney for that matter? To me it seems that you pass your money from one person to the next. It's called money laundering if you want to call it that way. Casinos are doing the same thing when they want to launder illegal money and make them seem legit.
If you made it possible for others to clalify, then perhaps people would buy and sub for world of warcraft. You'd have a bigger audience, more money overall.
you do know who is funding this tournament right? the guy that pays people to play with him, pays people to play his characters, pays people to join his guild. I doubt he gives two shits about people buying or subbing for wow, or getting the most viewers possible when the $10,000 prize money equates to throwing spare change at tramps on the street for him

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper and have looked at the numbers comparatively for almost every class

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)
