Hey community after watching last nights Active Reload it got me thinking. Everyone agreed we don't need MLG to survive, we just have to get the funding from somewhere. Here is an idea that I would like to get some feedback.
Now I know we have Hypefestation and I watched both of them and loved them. The problem is people like CDN had to front the prize money. Its not just him, but people were paying out of pocket. What if we as a community do this.
1. Get twitch involved and follow in MLG's footsteps and make a 5$ PPV. I know Cream, Fallout, myself and alot of other people out there have great streaming computers and we could make something happen.
2. Make it a open registration $200 dollars a team.
3. Have the event somewhere neutral like Dallas. East, West, and Central could commute to this.
Say we got 32 teams thats 6400 dollars. Now lets add in even 500 people (shooting low) who pay to watch. That comes out too 2500. Also last night on Active Reload Cream and the guys were trying to get Epic to match what we put up. If that were to happen that comes out to 15-16k. If you make it even a 6k prize pool were top 4 get paid that leaves plenty for expensives.
Sorry if this was a waste of your time. Just got me thinking.
