Hello everyone! This is the official thread for the one and only American Satellite for our next LIVE event, IGN Pro League 5! The top 8 of this Satellite will earn qualification for the live event. There will only be one Satellite for America, one for Europe, and one for Asia. Each player may only participate in one of the American, European, or Asian Satellites. There will be one additional Amateur Satellite that will be open to players with minimal previous tournament earnings.
Unfortunately, we are not yet able to announce the date or location of our live event. All we can tell you is that it is coming up soon and these qualifiers were scheduled in a way that ensures that we have time for travel preparations to be made. If for any reason, a player who qualifies in these online qualifiers cannot make the trip to our live event, their registration fee will be refunded and we will use the Regional results to determine who will receive the free travel, hotel, and tournament seed instead. For Satellites, we will use results to determine who will qualify in their place.

Surely you would think to reconsider considering two major SC2 events, including your competitor's playoffs are this weekend? NASL has some great players competiting, and they won't be able to compete and qualify at the same time :S

I don't understand the outrage when these were announced months ago. Especially complaining about EU qual dates overlapping arena when they were announced a loooong time before arena was. There's probably a better way to do this (weekdays) but it shouldn't be a sudden shock given how long ago these dates were announced.
