Is the HAN System enforced? What if both teams agree to do a Home and Away match, say Asia vs Europe in their respective servers. Is that allowed or must we follow the table?

No, it's not enforced. But it is recommended based on what we've learnt in previous international cups and the table can still be edited if we find better options for neutral servers in testing. I recall in the previous cup where you and two certain Russian teams had the chance to play a neutral game, and the Russians opted to play home/away matches with at least 400 ping both ways.  :D Besides, Shanti's Bitches are not going to be around for much longer, which is why Russia's home server is listed as Frankfurt (Hyper-V).

I'd also like to inform everyone that the deadline for registration ends at midnight GMT on Sunday May 4th with the cup itself going live 24 hours after that, so any teams wanting to play still have a little over 2 weeks left to sign up. We currently stand at 22 confirmed teams and there are certainly more to come! We also have the cup rules here: https://github.com/Attano/l4d2-tourney-rules/blob/master/rules_EQCup3.md

In Asia, Japan & Singapore players get really different ping to American Servers. e.g a Japanese player would get 140-160ms in Dallas whilst a Singaporean player might get upwards of 200ms. Therefore SG vs Europe matchups might be more fair on LA servers tbh.

Given this data, I'd estimate the average European ping towards LA at around 190-210ms, maybe 180ms for London/Amsterdam residents.

$10 says you aren't anywhere near a controlling position of the L4D3 scene in any continent when it happens.

Thing is he does what he wants, cause his able to and we are letting him do that. He abuses hes place and power in this community and people like me get banned for no reason. Only thing visor wants is more and more control so he can do what ever he wants.

I feel like the obvious neutral server for Asia/EU is Dallas.
