"Makes no sense": Dota 2 personalities disagree on TI8 qualifier spot distributions

The International 2018 Closed Qualifier's spot distribution have raised a few heated discussions in the community.  We gathered a few interesting comments and reactions from the talent, players and other Dota 2 community members.

The delegation of three spots for NA (despite no top 8 DPC representation) at the cost of one each for Europe and CIS was the biggest point of discussion. The opinions seem to be split polarly, with some calling it unfair and some calling it honestly deserved. 

In an interesting juxtaposition, Evil Geniuses Rasmus "MISERY" Filipsen disagrees with the CIS receiving one spot, while CIS own commentator Vitalii "v1lat" Volochai sees no problem with this decision.

Jacky "EternaLEnVy" Mao and Jonathan "Loda" Berg have different justification for their opposite opinions. While one refers to previous unfair spot distributions, another looks at here and now, specifically at the point of the whole Dota Pro Circuit system.

Evil Geniuses CEO and manager points out a difference in community reactions between a similar situation of last year's SEA qualifiers and the current outrage to NA receiving three spots.
