So far it seems that Fireworks's sponsored tournament has been a success.

Would it be possible to organize a tournament to benefit an international charity? It would probably be an amateur tournament with an entry fee of about 10 euros, with nominal prizes for 1st 2nd and 3rd, the rest of the proceeds going to charity. If it were an amateur tournament, the draw would be randomly generated based on the number of players who enter.

L****** and g** foundation?! No. :rofl:


On a serious note I doubt people would participate... they can aswell donate the money themselves and what would the winners get, the entry fee? Could make this site popular/known though if it worked.

If the tournament pool were limited to people who had never made HOF, potentially hundreds of people could enter.* The pay schedule would be 100-50-25 like Fireworks's tournament. This would be feasible so long as 18 people entered...anything over that would go to charity.


*and have a serious chance of winning

That one is a really nice idea f000, I like it! It would certainly make more players participate. But how will you make sure someone who signs up never made HOF!? :p

Allowing just known chronical less good players to participate would shrink the number but would probably still be better than letting everyone in. :o

A charity tournament needs maxiumum participation; sign-ups would be self-regulated, and if anyone who had made the HOF slipped in hopefully someone would notice after the draw was finalized. The idea is to have a huge draw. Each round is best 2/3 games (loser of the second round picks the final map), and the games can be played at the leisure of the tournament participants so long as they are played by a deadline. Participants see the draw and who they are going to play, then they have until a certain time (posted on s-t) to play the 2/3 series (tournament games, so there is a record). The map pool could be identical to the Cash Tournament map pool. This would boost s-t activity and competition in online play.

The entries would be somewhat limited anyway, as no one without an s-t account could participate. By advertising in the lobby, Admin could increase s-t use. The main thing is to avoid mixing pros and amateurs, which deters amateurs from playing.

Unlike the current tournament, there would not be a qualifying round the month before; the tournament would just take place over a few days or a week at a designated time.
