Stream Link: http://www.twitch.tv/tashyra/
Starts at 4pm CET on Saturday, 18th of May
Each match is a best of three until the finals, which will be played as best of five.
Eight teams will be participating. We decided this is a good number as the games can be played on one day. We prefer more tournaments to larger ones.
You can contact Toxicas (email@example.com) or Hildegard (Private Message).
We try out a new way of financing the tournament and the prizes. We decided to put a paypal account so you can donate to this tournament. We will use the money for server transfers of two Horde characters to EU-Aegwynn in order to be able to host Horde vs. Horde and Horde vs. Alliance matches and any money after that will split into 70% for prize money and 30% for the organization of the tournament. Just to clarify, the money is not used to be paid onto our bank accounts. It's used for organizational stuff all around the tournament. If we get more than needed we will add it to the prize pool or use it for the next tournament.
Additionally we talk to sponsors for cash and material prices. The idea is to make a crowd-funded tournament and we have no idea, yet, if and how much money we will get, so we cannot announce any cash prices, yet.
