These lan tournaments might be in some ways unfair to players who are not able to attend and won't always be able to attend in the future like Vinch and some of the other players. Vinch through no fault of his own cannot attend and can't particpate even though he worked hard and beat some very good players to get through. It also won't look like he will be able to attend other lan events soon, Also the aoe community is intentionally choosing these lan events knowing some players such as Vinch can't attend. Why can't they let him play from home? and other qualified players who cannot attend. The order of sheep will be second tournament that was huge recently Vinch unable to attend. Just like rbw. For a top player that is sad, and potentially alot of money.
