What the hell man? You only know 2k+ players or what. You didn't count 2k- players as a decent player to represent their countries?Question still stands, though, and the example becomes simpler: Can MbL just pick one of his AM teammates' teams and make a pseudo-AM?
@robo did you get in touch with other streamers like T90/Memb/Nili etc before making the announcement about how they can support raising money Or how you would like them to support raising money?
"Imagine there's no countries" then...why should we do a nations cup in the first place?I say just let everyone represent whatever country they feel the most proud to represent. No need for walls, border guards and passport checks in a damn video game. Most people will want to represent their own country anyway - whatever they feel is their own country.
Even if it's not the primary motivation, having $40,000 to spend on prize money, admin, and a LAN finals sure is nice.No. A big prizepool is not the primary motivation for this event, or I would wait a year for MS to maybe put more money into events.
If they want to help raise awareness/fundraise etc then I'm all for it and I'm happy to work with them, but if they don't want to I won't force them to.

Norway, as a 5 mln country, get super luck with two exceptional 2k6+ players and A LOT OF decent 1k7-2k TG players. Some countries with equal or even more population have literally nothing! And you want MBL team up with aM...
Or it must at least be explained why DauT can play for Germany
To make Tyrant great again LuLWhy would anyone think DauT would be allowed to play for Germany?
the sponsor (who donates most) should decide the main format of the event
Why would anyone think DauT would be allowed to play for Germany?
This came up during an interview at the ECL Lan and Viper said he'd feel really weird not representing Norway. Maybe if this tournament was going to be 4v4 like last time, when Norway didn't even field a team (IIRC), then it would be conceivable that Viper could play for Germany instead. But this is a 3v3 and he and MbL are more than good enough to prop up a third player, so I can't see it.This whole eligibility conversation seems to revolve around Viper (and DauT trolling someone on stream) but it's probably a non-starter anyway. I'd have a hard time believing Viper would even choose to represent Germany in a NATIONS Cup because he's always seemed like a fairly proud
SwedNorwegian anyway. He's played so many TG tournies with his boi Joadn but NC is something else.
I do think having something like a former Yugoslavia / Balkan team could be a shout in situations where certain countries with a tiny AOE pool could join together
How would we treat a team that wants to represent Scotland, or Tibet, or Catalonia?
Catalonia as a nation doesnt exist and never will in near future. Tibet is part of china.
