Good news, folks.

I've been working behind the scenes in an effort to secure some prizing for the tournament, and thanks to the generosity of a benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous, we now have prizing in place.

 

1st Place Team - 4000 gold to EACH member on the official 14-man roster.

 

2nd Place Team - 2000 gold to EACH member on the official 14-man roster

 

3rd Place Team - 1000 gold to EACH member on the official 14-man roster.

 

That is a total of 98,000 gold in the prize pool.

 

Due to the flexible nature of the rosters at this point, each Team Captain will need to submit an official roster to me,  AT THE COMPLETION of the tournament. 

 

I will then submit the rosters for disbursement of the prizing.

 

While I may fly a few battles with the Warhawks team, I am exempting myself from prize eligibility in an effort to retain some impartiality.

 

Now, that there is some incentive to invest your time in the tournament, I hope to see some more teams registered.

I think it's going to cost a lot more than that because unless things have changed there is no way of buying gold in bulk & dispersing it & that would make 42 separate transactions. We went through this the last Air Raid tournament when players were going to donate out of pocket for prizing.

Thank you for all the work, WC, and a big thanks to the donor as well. Hopefully this gets a few more clans involved

As far as the logistics goes, that's not my concern.

I was asked to submit final rosters for the top three teams, and that it would be taken care of.

Holy macaroni! Someone stepped up big time, a class act all the way whoever you are.

Ghostprime, I challenge you as Wging's representative here in NA to step up to the plate and help this angel on WGing's shoulder putting his/her own skin in the game for the betterment of our WOWP community.

Does the third party also wish to remain anonymous?

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.
