Wait this is in 2 weeks cant we have a bit of time to practice this is obviously the biggest online round to date a lot of people making a return just for it. Any chance of delaying it a couple weeks so people have a chance to find a team?

Dude the EB expo itself is in just over a month. Add to the fact they have to run online qualifiers for the other games they're holding, There just isn't enough time to delay it for a couple of weeks.

Unfortunately we cannot change the dates. We are trying to give people as much time as possible to sort out flights and accommodation with the little time frame we have to work with.
