How is the open qualifier only 1 slot and Italian qualifier 2 slots? Should be the other way around if you ask me. Poland and Germany 2 slots I can understand but I very much doubt the Italian qualifier will get more sign-ups than the Open qualifier.

-Edit: Ok so I suppose you have less slots for the Open Qualifier because here teams can be mixed and the 3 players from the same country rule don't apply here. I think the 3 player rule should also count for the Open qualy - otherwise what's the point of calling it a County championship in the first place?

So this means a team that participates in the Europe Open Qualifier do not need 3 members from the same country? Seems a bit odd for a country championship.

So true.
Where is the dutch qualifer...
hah, they dare call t a country championship, when only 3 ppl from the same country are needed? And what's up with the slots indeed...
And btw, i thnk that for the open qualifier you will also need ppl from the same country, like 3 dutch ppl and 2 others. But they'll probably explain this later.
Is it BO3?
Nice news!

yea But not everyone is like you. So now you will just see the same teams you see in all the normal cups.
Any UK players message me.
Hey could you see if theres any opportunity to open a qualifier for Portugal?
The reason why I'm asking this is because theres lots of portuguese people and clans playing Arctic Combat, in fact it's very rare to not find any portuguese playing in the UK server.

From self experience I think it shouldn't be a problem speaking with the ESL.PT guys about it, the only obstacle I find so far is calling out the portuguese attention to its national qualifier and evaluate if theres enough people interested in order to make the qualifier possible.
Also, as stated, the EU Open Qualifier isn't that fair because it only has 1 slot while others have 2... but what I really want to propose in this post is about the PT qualifier, which could make sense. If you check the Country stats clan tab on arctic combat website you can see Portugal is among the top 5, actually 4th place.
I think that shows the general clan activity.

best cryer comment ever. nothing personal with you
Hey,

the splitting of the slots is done by Webzen. I'm pretty sure they've done this based on there player numbers and therefore have a valid point to have it this way.

As for the Open Qualifier: Of course the country rule does apply there as well. 60% of the team (i.e. 3 of 5 players) need to be from the same country of residence.

best regards and merry Christmas,
David
Great tournement.. but i prefer the ESL cups/tournements.

Like David said the slots are based on there player numbers.. But I think they should pick the best countries to let them join in this tournement. I think they made a mistake to not let The Netherlands in, in this region are the best players.

Can't wait till ESL makes tournements/cups. ;)
First of all MAKE SOME LADDERS(2V2,3V3,4V4), second one why Arctic Wind is not available??? and that stuff witf country staff is stupid.

A valid point? There's not much logic to be seen in this slot distribution. Italy and or Poland would have more player than the rest of Europe that doesn't have their own qualifiers? No way, David. Please inquire about this... If you won't please tell me then I will do it myself.

It is not a bug. You can only sign up in german qualifier, if you are from germany.
But 1 team can't partipicate in two different qualifiers right?
There are more teams who signed in for two different qualifiers...

i ask admin...

the cup is only with moss

wire dont work!
Haha moss, oh boy. Atleast all the bugs are known now, so no more whine I hope!
Bugs should be punishable with disqualification. They aren't called bugs for no reason and it's not fair at all.
If we really have to play with MOSS. Then its better to move the cup to another date...
hmmm..nice one......ac is going to be competitive as i can see!!!

You can't punish something that isn't your fault you genius. MOSS is bugged and doesn't work properly in AC. The same bugs happen when you try streaming AC, it just doesn't work. MOSS/Streaming only works if AC removes the forced fullscreen thing, because in the start of the open beta they forgot to enable this and this allowed you to alt+tab the game and this also made streaming possible. Most likely this will also fix MOSS for this game, but somehow when they have this disabled, all the servers lag, so this forced them to enable it again. I guess it was only for testing purpose only :(

Currently there is no mandatory for any AntiCheat aside from the official Hackshield (provided by Webzen) since MOSS has obv. a lot of bugs with Arctic Combat and Wire wont work at the moment. As we wrote previously the Dev´s are working on Wire. We will inform you as soon as we have a valid version.
