  1. Notice no outside countries like South Africa. We arent good enough to get a server close by so must survive on pings of 200ms. Come on blizzard, if you want a real world cup, include the whole world!

  2. I speak for all South Africans when I say this is really, really fucking unfair. We will NEVER get a fighting chance until you, Blizzard, install SA servers for us. With pings of 200ms+, it's impossible to play against the pros. FFS, invest in SA so we can also have a chance.

  3. If a scandinavian country won, would you consider shipping over some statues here?
    – Every scandinavian
