My instinct tells me that the 7 Invite scenario is the most likely. There's a clear Tier 1 of over the last 6 months and especially since the Kiev Major. The lack of SEA team winning a LAN since Kiev makes that invite a little less clear, but TNC has a 2nd and a 3rd, which is better than any other SEA team. Along with a LAN win earlier in they year.
