Alright, i dont know if any of you will be interested. But im interested in hosting a CASH TOURNAMENT for TS. RA2 and TS players are all welcome. This thread is just to find out who will be interested. We have had cash turnys b4 that wasnt successful cause people dont finish ones games. I remb who these people are.

Let me know your thoughts. This will be based on Tiers! It can be a ra2 player vs ra2 player in TS.


1v1 and 2v2 Matches?
Watchers?


GRAND PRIZE $150 CASH or PAYPAL for out of US players
2nd Prize $50
3rd price $25

To make this sound more legit, i can send the prize money to OLAF via paypal (will give him a $25 compensation if he agrees). and he will issue the prizes.

Prizes will be funded by me. If you would like to donate to the prize pool, let me know.

Let me know if you will be interested and i will see if i can set somting up.

Im not worried about cheaters, we will have ways of figurin this out.

Well we have a few major facebook pages at our benefit, including the xwis one, and westwood page which together has around 4k of fans. Also, the new C&C forums, and the likes of major fansites such as cncnz etc. The news from then will probably just trickle down to the minor fansites too.

If you are going to do it, should make a random map specially for the tournament, because if you make it on terrace, you might as well just send the money to kapa now.

Agreed. Open to all ideas. Maps watever.

I would like to see skeleton nod play to.

Also, i might have a secret bonus round for the top 3 players. Its a secret challenger to win an additional $20.

Nitemarez id love ur help. Ive seen ur ideas and wanna implement things like the mystery player etc.

Close topic.. No1 is interested.

i got warned by Olaf for stickign up for my own cash Turny and my post was deleted when aphrodltes wasnt. Suks when you try to help the community and you have som1 warn you. Could have just deleted all the spam instead?

Cash turny canceld

You can thank Olaf for this. I was planning a summer turny after this one with a 26" LCD monitor as a prize etc etc.

I was even going to donate to Olaf to help me handle a turny as formentioned.

Maybe TS only hope is to move to a whole diff server.

My company deals with alot of subpoenas and legal letters. Maybe if i have my companies lawyer write to Victory games or EA they will push ST to get ones act together.

The warning could have been avoided by just ignoring it and leaving a moderator to deal with it. In-fact 10 posts were spamming your topic and they were all dealt with appropriately. :)

As per requested, topic closed.
