SY China Nations Cup 2017 - LAN Update

The Chinese organisers have been in talks with commercial sponsors for months. Some agreed to donate towards the LAN and some talks fell through. At this point there are insufficient funds to invite the top 4 to the LAN, the number of teams that will be invited to the LAN will be reduced to the top 2.
The date of the LAN is set from 14th October until 16th October. The final will be played on the 15th.

All the money we raised so far will go to the flights for the players that make the top 2. If you donated for a top 4 and don't agree with the donation going towards a top 2, send me a pm and we will work something out.

If you plan on going (for non-invited players) please send me a pm or reply to this topic and we will help you with organising the trip.


Details:
  • LAN event from 14th – 16th October 21st - 23rd October
  • Multiple matches spread over these days
  • LAN will be held in Xiamen, Fujian, China
  • Hotel will be booked by the Chinese
  • Airport of arrival: Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport

What if the top 2 teams are from China(low chances but possible)? Wouldn't it save money for 2 more teams to fly in?

I think even now it wouldn't be the most unlikely scenario that two of the top 4 teams are chinese, probably way more unlikely to have 2 on top 2.

This is sad. Lesson to be learned is to fund events before they start...

What will happen to the money that was already donated? I assume it won't be needed now?

This also increases the chance of having no Chinese teams in the finals. (Now there are only 2 spots for them). Is there a guarantee that this will still go ahead even if the Chinese don't make the final 2?

Are any casters flights paid for? Or are they funding themselves.
