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 think it's far more likely that just hoping to win the EVO main slot and putting all the money there will end up with zero return. If we throw the tournament ourselves, we know it's going to happen. Then the only question is "How big will the prize pool be" and it really doesn't matter. If the players are there they'll have a good time regardless and it'll be something to remember.

I'm cool with donating to charity, I just think if you're going to do it, don't do it in the hopes of getting an EVO slot or influencing the Cannons -- do it because it's something you want to do.

One example would be like, Scar is fighting Rhabdomyolysis -- you could donate to a charity that funds rhabdomyolysis research as a way of supporting something close to home. But those charities will be still be open before and after EVO.

not sure what the argument is though...

We want to rep our community with a side tournament and have a prize pool while others are wanting to do the same but donating to charity to do so...except we don't want to donate to charity and want the money in the prize pool. Am I missing anything?
 
Competing in a charity is all well and good but there can only be 1 winner and it won't be MKX, not by a long shot.

This way we can have a community funded tournament at Evo even if it isn't on the official roster and at the same time contribute something to the charity just because.
I'm sure the other scenes who don't win will concoct something similar.

I'll drop £100 sterling on this. No disrespect to EVO or Make a Wish. I understand the game is on its way out I just love this game, like the idea of the scene supporting itself and would love to see this happen. Let me know if you go ahead and where to send the dough.

No, the prize for winning the charity drive is much better than that. Having a Main Stage game with a 10k pot bonus is not the same as running a community organised side event.

It's not that we don't want to donate to charity, we don't want money donated to the pot bonus to go to charity. Take money from the entrance fee, but not from the stream monsters and community members who are donating specifically to contribute to the pot.

Nothing about this less than a month away? Sheeeit I'll HAUL MY SHIT(a ps4 and broken Asus monitor) to the venue to make this happen if I need to. Sure hope I don't need to.
