You can't be serious. Tate is a known ASLOk dodger. He constantly finds reasons to not attend or else he would have to face the people he regularly insults on here. In fact, I don't know of a single tournament he has attended. He claims that he will go one day but I doubt it.
It's also said that he isn't as good as he talks (at least not regular scenarios). That might be another reason for his not showing up. ;)
Oh, don't worry not many people really like Tate (or a t least 'Tater' his on-line personna) I just don't take him all that seriously any more. Although I've not met him in person, I hear he is a jolly good fellow to sit across an ASL game from.
