Hey guys,

I'd post this on the official forums but I was caught in the false positive banwave and i'm still banned from the forums..

On the last day for team sign ups according to the newly updated 2016 rules (the rules posted were 2015 before this week), Canadians cannot participate in the 2016 road to Blizzcon tournament.

2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 Canadians were eligible..

Update: Olivia is going to check with the legal team tomorrow to confirm, she's doing everything she can to help. She didn't make the rules.

I prefer combat because my dong is large and I will face the enemy like a man rather than sprint over to a pillar for a re after my opener is up.


sorry, I don't speak duellist

This seems crazy considering how many WoW NA players are from Canada.

Yea either their legal team messed up pretty bad or there's going to be a category 5 shitstorm incoming. Part of the problem is the 2015 rules were posted up until recently, so nobody knew until today and today is the last day for signups.

It's unlikely that Canada wasn't added on purpose, especially without communication or confirmation. It seems more like an error onn tthe official ruling. Need to wait until Monday to avoid giving false confirmations.

Would some sort of extension for signups be in order to compensate for the banwave (for which some are still sitting at 0cr and will affect seeding) and for teams not knowing if they can play with Canadians? For example, our team is 3/4 Canadian and the 1/4 isn't sure to risk signing up with us or go for another team.

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

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

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 :)

I mean, we all expected Blizzard to fuck up. So far, they haven't managed to properly set up tournaments for WoW ever.

Just go ahead and play in it. I'm sure they meant "North America" and not just specifically United states. They wouldn't exclude Canada, I'm pretty sure there's no laws in Canada that would prevent people from earning money from gaming tournaments or to participate in them.
