Because there's only two "pure" top teams in America? EG is region mixed and might reform.

What the hell man MUFC > Orange anyday ... why only 1 for Malaysia dude. Maybe you want Mineski to catch attention from Pinoys. Even though I am Vietnamese but I have to say SB is very weak now. Please find a way to invite MUFC =) And btw why DTS instead of Darer?

If darer doesn't make it, It will be a big blow for alot of people. Darer beat m5 and yet they don't even get invited.
