The biggest joke:
a) Asia minor without open quals
b) CIS qualifiers in 3 days
c) CIS Minor in Europe, in 20 days… good luck with visas.

I think there is a general consensus that the Major qualifiers have been announced hastily. The CSGO Ecosystem is packed to the brim and seeing the qualifier dates overlap with that of the several tournament dates which have been announced months in advance. Despite those clashes, there are also some other basic problems with the way the qualifiers have been arranged.
We have the CIS qualifiers being held in 3 days and that is simply not enough time for most teams to get themselves together. Being informed of such stuff 3 days in advance is simply not professional for most of the teams.
