For Europeans now time is tight. Qualy starts in 2 days and you still have a +24 hours flight from the moment you step into the plane. You have to get ready, buy a last minute ticket (to Australia!!) meaning lots of $$$... Let alone jet-lag, change of weather conditions and definitely not the best preparation. I believe Asians and local girls will fill the gaps if players keep withdrawing.
But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
