Frequently Asked Questions:

We want to see you get there, so you have a couple options.  
You can join an already highly populated region or you can invite more friends to join your region.
We know not every region won't have enough to make it to Championships, so we first guarantee the higher regions a shot, then we split up the number of remaining championship slots and issue them to regions based on populations.  So, even in a lower populated region, there's still a chance you'll go to championships.
