do not get your hopes up. this is not to say lcw will or will not play, i personally do not know. those reports do not always reflect the truth. they only reflect paperwork that has been filed. some federations do not file paperwork on time. in the last tournament i ran i knew some players were not going to play. they personally told me. their federation did not file a notice until the night before the tournament started. the majority of federations are not known for their organizational efficiency and professionalism.
