So far the DoA champions Master and SweetRevenge were able to get this opportunity in quality respectively of first and second finisher at D.I.D X, more remember that there is less than a week left to the starting of the "Summer Jam 8" where other 2 DoA players will be able to win their ticket for the TFC (note that in these two events the first and second qualified players end to be sponsored, while in both the qualifiers organized by Pwnit! only the first placement).
