Could tftv host some sort of last minute "fundraising" (read: donation drive) stream? Similar to toth but small scale.
I mean, if every dollar is matched, and there's a donation stream where we can donate for 1v1 or silly other things, do it mumble only perhaps. If we could raise 10 or 15k we could potebtially have a 30k pot + whatever marketplace comes in with

Just to clarify there is a ceiling to the YouStake deal, it's up to $5k, and it's only $1 per individual that donates. I'm still very optimistic that we can reach this goal if enough people are willing to spend the time creating accounts and paying the $1.33.

A donation drive stream would be dope. Also if this could go out to reddit then it might receive the same support as i58 did or even more.

It's going to be somewhat strangely nostalgic having the majority of the casters be NA at a LAN.

Yo guys got some cool after hours stuff planned too. Free booze for those who are of age in the US as well as a VR setup in the hotel. 24 hours of nonstop fun.

samifaceHey guys! Registration is now live for the Open tournament: https://youstake.com/evtreg

*DO NOT REGISTER FOR THE INVITE TOURNAMENT. WE MADE IT $1K BUY IN SO NO ONE SIGNS UP FOR IT ON ACCIDENT*

The buyin for open is $150 + processing fee. The team captain will have to create an account, and register/pay for the entire team. Get these in when you can as the number of teams signed up will determine format of the tournament. And remember, the Open GF is scheduled to be on stage and casted!

Crowdfunding is also open, for TF2 80% of funds will go to Invite and 20% will go to Open. We've added some spicy perks to the package, if you have any questions on a specific perk please let me know.

Youstake will give $1 for every person who donates, so even if you give $1 (plus a $0.33 processing fee), they will give $1. Just enter the amount you want to donate into the "Specified Amount $" field and click the "Support Now" button. Note that you'll need to sign up for a Youstake account and provide a phone number/address for age and payment verification before you can donate. It only takes a few minutes, and puts extra money in the prizepool so donate the $1.33 if you can.

Edit: Additional information for captains
To register a team for the 6v6 Open tournament, go to Dashboard > Manage my teams > Build a new team.
You'll need to create the team name and enter player's names and e-mails before you can register to pay the entry fee.

Start signing up your teams to the open tournament!

Also don't overlook that free $1 deal. We can get up to $5000 free dollars added, so if we get 5000 people each to give $1, we can get $10k added (and don't forget it goes into both the open and invite prize pools)!

******IMPORTANT HOTEL INFORMATION******

TL;DR
We are not at the 1515 S Coast Dr location, we are at the 2721 Hotel Terrace location.

Here's what happened.

The original hotel given to us by La Quinta was in Costa Mesa. IF YOU BOOKED AT THIS ADDRESS IN COSTA MESA, TRANSFER YOUR RESERVATION-
1515 S Coast Dr, Costa Mesa, CA 92626

As soon as I found out, I asked them to move it to the correct location we had originally requested (in Santa Ana, closer to the venue) the price went up to $99/night. Someone noticed this price is actually higher than the handicapped ADA rooms they're offering on their website, so I asked them to clarify why our group rate was higher than their own rate. Evidently we blocked all their regular rooms with our group rate, and the ADA ones are actually cheaper than the regular rooms, so $99 is the rate we get. We have up to 25 rooms at this location blocked off to book until the new year (well, 24, I just booked one). She also told me some people have already tried to book the rate and it didn't work, but it will work now. If you want to take the cheaper rate, you can do that, it doesn't hurt anything.

To book in our block, call 1-800-642-4239, Option 1. Ask for Orange County - Santa Ana, 2721 Hotel Terrace location. The special rate is still under Rewind.

Hotel Address:
2721 Hotel Terrace / phone: (714) 540-1111

Arrival Date: 1/19/2017
Departure Date: 1/23/2017
Guest Room Rates:
Standard Room with 2 Double Beds:$99 per room, per night, plus tax (room comes with microwave and mini fridge)
Standard King Room w/ sleeper sofa: $99 per room, per night, plus tax (no microwave or mini fridge)
Reservations must be made no later than 12/29/2016 in order to guarantee this special rate.

I want to offer my apologies both at how late this information is coming and the mess itself. I am very glad we finally have this sorted out. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to add me on steam.

Check out this quick guide to donating to the Rewind prize pool through YouStake: https://youtu.be/S9dR2RwCqYo
Reminder that if we get 5,000 people to contribute just $1 we can get $10,000 added to the prize pool benefiting both the open and invite prize pools! I've already donated, now it's your turn :)

We just had a productive meeting between representatives from Esports Arena and invite LAN captains to tie up a couple loose ends. Here's what came from it:
-Global Whitelist will be used, in whatever form it takes come January 21st.
-Invite prize breakdown: 1st - 45%, 2nd - 25%, 3rd - 17.5%, 4th - 12.5%
-Ruleset: 45 minute timelimit, 5 round winlimit 5cp/4 round winlimit koth, two 120 second tactical pauses allowed per team per map

As you can see we are taking this opportunity to experiment with a new ruleset. I see this ruleset as a compromise between all of those played around the world. Let's hope it leads to great games for all!
