    NS2 World Championship..

    http://www.gofundme.com/ns2worldchampionship

    After all the messup around this .. is there any way to get a note out looking for support from the RPS community on the fundraiser?

    I'd love to see it succeed

    I'd even go so far as to suggest we field a team for fun ...we'd get stomped for sure .. but going in with such low expectations would only allow us to enjoy it instead of trying to be super competitive

    It'd only cost our time ..I could swing some specific times to mess about by trading in some precious brownie points I've been saving up heh

    Meh, not really my cup of tea, I care not for Esports or sports in general. Nor would I enjoy getting stomped in bits. Heck we sometimes cannot even win when we ourself stack :P. But by all means go for it, I will cheer for you from the sideline!

    What, you mean like getting RPS to post about it? Unlikely. They do have an esports column but it's very infrequent.

    Don't you all have to be from the same country? We're all spread over Europe (with the occasional American).

    hmm I didn't think everyone from the team'd have to be from the same country .. well I'd assumed not.. with already existing teams with multiple nations (esp in Euroland)

    Imagine trying to get a IRE team together .. you'd be paying homeless guys in the street to make up the numbers..

    We probably don't have the enthusiasm for it here anyhow

    Whoa! Intel and Nvidia just donated 16k to the NS2 World Championship! That was unexpected...

    Holy shit, did not see that coming!

    They've only got a handful of days to make up the rest though.

    Wow, that is quite a bit, still they require 8000 more in 4 days, 2000 a day from a small community? Colour me surprised if they succeed.
