The fact that this thread only has 49 posts has me a little worried about the support this will get

Just saying. Maybe it's best we move on

Most who will go to EVO and enter don't go on TYM.

Pretty much less than 10% of the people you see at events go on this site. That was a huge surprise for me when I first started going out.

Ragnarok's tweet has like 9 times the likes that this original post does, for example.
 
The tweet does have considerably more likes & such, but not much in he way of responses. I'm giving people the benefit of the doubt when they say they'd openly donate to the pot on this endeavor. We've still got some time and if people are serious, then I've much work to do in the way of helping Pig promote it. The more support the community lends from all mediums (TYM, Twitter, YT, etc) the bigger the pot and the better the experience.

I'm cautiously optimistic about it really.

I am trying to go to EVO this year as it's probably the only chance I'll ever really have to go. Whether I can make it or not, I'm going to donate a decent amount to @Pig Of The Hut to help make this happen. I figure he will come through as long as we have his back and support him.

In my opinion, part of the pot donations need to go to charity. Even bypassing the moral argument, like Ketchup said it will be bad press for the community if it looks like we're taking our ball and going home after the failure of our Evo donation drive. It's also positive press coverage for our community if we give to the charity of our own volition.

Great move by Pig. Now let's see if NRS supports it and gives a pot bonus.

Imagine if mkx got a final patch before this tournament... #hype

If there is a gofundme posted somewhere for this pot bonus I'll contribute. I support this far more than having a tournament mishandled again by EVO officially. Especially if we can get Aris or whoever the hell fly by night guys off our mic and put some of our own dedicated and stellar folks on there again.

makes no sense.
Makes perfect sense. You said, judging by the count of replies that maybe we should let it go as if MKX is a lost cause. If you look at IJ2 threads, they aren't exactly brimming with responses. You can't make judgement from this site anymore. It's kind of baron.

Stop fishing for Kenshi buffs. The game had its final patch

The MK9 side tourney was a pretty big success. We're still a ways out from EVO and there's plenty of time to organize and build hype in the meantime.

If the players are down to play and help out then regardless of the size of the bonus, that's all we really need.

I remember. What I'm afraid of is that pig puts in tons of work and there is no return. Dude works too hard and the community is already full of people who think donating to charity is a bad idea.

I'm out on that note...

I don't think any of us legit think donating to charity is a bad idea.

If I'm donating money to charity, I want it to go to the charity. If I'm donating money to a pot bonus, I want it to go towards the pot bonus. I think that's pretty reasonable.
