Hump in my floor

I am going to be installing a laminate floor in my dinning/living room area. (probably Dupont) There is a bit of a hump in the floor down the middle of the room, its flat for about 10' and then humps down about 3/4" over the next 8'. I was going to put the floor in longways over the hump.

Is this going to be a major problem in the future? The box I have for a sample lays over it just fine and is not raised.

Failure to adhere to the strict substrate flatness specifications, for laminate flooring is a recipe for failure.

Read the substrate flatness specs for the laminate you choose. Then don't install the flooring until the substrate meets those specs.

Your floor will be doomed for failure! Plus, warrenty will be worthless.

Thanks for the help , I'll just have to rip the ply up and level it off better, that part on a slope used to be the porch and it settled differntly over time..... might even be able to re-hang the joists. Guess I won't know till I open it up.
