Slovenia tiborrr says:

But not my country :/ Again.

Belgium Massman says:

Do you guys have a Gigabyte office in Slovenia? If yes, ask them if they can subscribe the country for the EU qualifiers.

Belgium Massman says:

FYI - This competition is a ONE-MAN event. No longer two persons in one team!

Slovenia tiborrr says:

Massman, our country is so far behind we don't even have Intel representative office, we are under Hungarian branch. But I'll try to ask local Gigabyte importers to see if anything can be done.

Belgium Massman says:

I think you'll have to go through the Hungarian office and ask for an extra seat for Slovenia

What offices do your countries fall under?

This list is most likely based on the different offices around the world. Some countries don't have their own office, so they are not included in the main list. There's always a possibility to compete through the office that deals for your country.

Please let me know, maybe there's something that can be arranged.

I feel bad they dont considered other countries in SA, Chile & Colombia had to be in competition instead of others where are no 1 extreme overclocker.
