Has anybody actually seen ice0age -R- at a tournament before? I never seen any streams of him on anything, and I've only viewed his matches online...

@SFilp

Pretty sure Daigo isn't going to be at this.

@TedTesty

Actually, we've received a few reports that Daigo will be there, from good sources. Maybe the reports were off, but as far as I've seen, he'll be there.

Even though he is not on the trailer he might be going since, as you could see at the end of the trailer, more information about international players will be rolled out soon. He might have accepted the invitation AFTER the creation of the trailer.

@#11 Sounds like you're watching the old trailer in the op.
The one in my post is from 2 days ago, and it's the final list.
Don't you think someone would be talking about him coming if he was, especially the Kuwaitis? But nope. Nothing.

Weltall said on February 6, 2013 at 7:03 a.m.

That trailer doesn't have Ryan Hart, and he is already there.

Weltall said on February 6, 2013 at 7:03 a.m.

Btw - All of those trailers are pretty bad.

@#13
True, but Ryan Hart is in the Description for the trailer though. :)

Thank you for pointing that out, I really was watching the old one. Yeah, don't know about Daigo now. But I hope he shows up.

#14
Indeed, fellow. They're all really bad.

@OP
