Also, @Heyoka you may wish to clarify which Fnatic is qualified (hint: its the EU one) since Dreamhack had nationality flags next to teams.
Not bad, although Synderen is gonna have a tough time to win 1v5 against any of those teams =D Hoping for upsets and good games ^_^ Really happy to see POTM Bottom (aka Dignitas) and NoTide in there + Show Spoiler +
Joking, I know mTw has a roster, but they just haven't announced it yet ^_^

other then that NTH is there so winning :D
I actually love the fact that it is a western tournament. I love that there still is a sense of regionality in DotA, like the national football (soccer) leagues and such. One thing I dislike about all the people travelling across continents for SC2 lans is that everything has to be the friggin Champion's League, and your tournament is rated based on Champion's League likeness. Please please let us keep at least some lans western and some SEA and some chinese. Let us keep it that way, so that the International may keep being a big deal. Let it be the clash of styles and origin. Let us see US teams battling SEA teams battling crazy CIS teams battling stable chinese teams only so often. It just adds so much to the scene IMO.
