joinDOTA will be your hosts for the online qualifiers for Electronic Sports World Cup, which will hold its LAN finals in Paris, France. This year aside from LAN qualifiers in various participating countries, joinDOTA is the official partner with ESWC to host two open qualifiers, one East and one West qualifier.

so does the 3 same nationalities in a team rule apply to all or just qualifiers? because then Na'Vi would have to cut one...2 Ukrainian, 2 Russian and 1 Estonian. Unless Puppey has a Russian passport or something I remember that was the case last year.

This is also what I have heared.
What I think is quiet interesting is the fact that those three countries have paid for a slot. I mean who the hell paid the ESWC from those countrys? The government? The national eSport federation (i don't think they have one)?
And even more interesting would be why they paid? Their will be quiet certainly no team from one of those countries with a chance of winning anything.

Pakistan has a scene, but is mostly lan and their metagame is sort of like the 6.67c era. They probably did it to add a motive for gamers over there besides some local tournaments and to promote them. There are teams but apparently not close at the level of Euro's even 2/3rd tier. I still remember though our team beating India's despite being 4v5.
Edit: Pakistan got removed! FFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
