Ok, so I am not a big fan of the Regional concept so far as it is explained. I do not like it that here in my region (Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Oklahoma) we are only going to be able to have two Regionals.
Some in our playing area already are conceding that Tulsa will host a regional because of Team Covenant, and though I do not know anyone there or have any problem with that, I find that elitism. Tulsa for our region is like the North Pole (I kid of course). If a player in Houston wants to drive (because he can't afford plane fare) then that is a long drive. If we want to hold one here in the DFW area (including Plano where there is a HUGE gaming area), we probably won't get it because of proximity to Tulsa and being too far from Louisiana, southern Texas, and New Mexico players.
I see Austin getting one if Tulsa is awarded one, but the problem is that there will only be two. Is the game struggling that much of is this a result from the headaches I heard they had at Worlds?
So what gives?
BTW, I am not trying to be negative, I am just advocating more than 2 regionals per region.
