ChrisG said on Twitter he will not be making it this time.

I believe a few players will be added to the lineup after the fact though, but the list here is based on people who pre-registered.

no, Chris G. F. champ?

And AE competition is weak compare to SolCal regional.

A lot of east coast players will be there, so I don't think it's fair to call the lineup weak.

SoCal Regionals definitely has a terrific lineup though, no doubt, but the east coast guys are no slouches.

PIE|Zeus is scheduled to be there, and he just won a major — with Vega.

Hopefully the rest of the PIE crew can attend, but I didn't include them here because I didn't see them in the pre-reg list.

A lot of people sign up last minute.

PR Rog is going? I thought he has said on his stream numerous times that he wasn't attending? Unless he changed his mind.
