A load of us just helped you raise a shedload of cash for this tourney and we are not particularly happy with it being at a time of year where it is hard for us to watch or take part. This is a poor use of the money we trusted you with really.
This is meant to be a spectacle to make NS2 standout to the rest of the gaming community too and potential new blood, but everyone is going to be out socialising or doing family stuff rather than watching. This devalues the tourney.

Just consider the Team Liquid event calendar for December for a minute. There's basically nothing on for the entire month of December.
I think it is crazy to run this tournament over Christmas. When you guys are sitting down wondering why attendance was less than expected don't forget that people warned you.
As an example, figure out how many of the UWE team will get a chance to watch the group stages. Then remember that we in Europe don't celebrate thanksgiving and that Christmas/New Years is the only winter holiday here.

Also I didn't see any notification of this change anywhere... should be more open with these changes so we can give feedback on them.
