The Super-Duper Tronic 2-Guys-1-Cup

Post by dreadlord »

Easy as that: Each team pays 100$ so we can all earn money and spend it all day. I heard Red Bull wants to donate some money as well (someone said that, can't remember who). Ladle style and such, yolo.

I'm going to have to agree with this notion. I think the words "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." spoken by MLK embody the tournament "dreadlord" is proposing here, and show us why this needs to happen. Don't let MLK's dream die guys, support "The Super-Duper Tronic 2-Guys-1-Cup" tournament today!

Haven't we tried to do this in the past but always ran into the currency exchange issue? Bitcoins seems like the only option

I have a dream that one day this community will rise up and live out the true meaning... blahblah etc.
So when is this, and the armagetronad world meetup(LAN) happening? :wink:

I think this tournament is a good way to make tron really popular and famous (again). As soon as labels like youporn and redtube notice how smexy this tournament is, they'll sponsor the shit out of us.

Assuming I am to take this thread seriously:

There is a huge flaw in trying to ask for a tournament entry fee from a FREE open source game community.
Most of the people here play Armagetron BECAUSE it's free (rather, they didn't have to pay anything to play it = most tronners don't have money like that).

Next, there are ladle teams that are predicted (more likely) to win ladle than others; you're asking for every time that thinks they would lose to such a team to drop out and not enter (since they'd just lose their entry fee), making for really small tournaments.

Finally, even if you lowered the entry fee to $1 (currency exchange shouldn't be that big of a deal), you still have the problem that this is basically like a lottery - and you might run into legal issues running your own over the internet. (there are some ways around the laws, but none that seem like this community would jump at the opportunity for)

Why did this tournament never happen? This is a prime example of a great idea that died too fast. Shame on you all.
