's footsteps on TEL; I'm gonna do the same on the Classic league. As many of you have noticed, I'm pretty busy in real life and I can't code TUS the way I used to. So currently this is the best way for me to help and get involved again.
I talked to obscure
and he came on board too. We decided to each put 100$ on each season of Classic league for the next 3 seasons, making it 200$ prize for each season. If we see positive results (and we're not broke by then), we'll continue renewing it. DarkOne
has donated the same amount towards additional prizes.
I will gladly accept if anyone wants to chip in to make the prize more fat! (Chicken23
already offered he will take part) If you'd like to chip in, make a donation to TUS and then let us know for which season your donation belongs to. Here's the path
Since the final prize is not known yet, we can't say the exact amount for each winner. But the 200$ of me and obscure is guaranteed, so it won't be any lower than that.Playoffs winner takes all?
No. 200$ won't be only for the playoffs winner. These people will be rewarded with the cash prize:
- Standings #1
- Playoffs qualification spot
- Playoffs runner-up
- Playoffs winnerHow the prize is split
There are some suggestions for how to split the prize. Such as:
- Standings #1 (20$)
- Playoffs qualification spot (8 x 10$)
- Playoffs runner-up (20$)
- Playoffs winner (100$)Additional prizes
- Best shot of the season (20$)
- Best turn of the season (20$)
- Worst shot of the season (20$)
- Worst turn of the season (20$)
- Best Commentary (20$)
- These prizes are not limited to just the classic league, but also Free league, TRL and TEL. Nominations should be of games played within the time of one classic league season.
But since the exact amount is not known, those numbers will change. Like always you can post up your ideas and we may choose the best splitting formula/plan.What's the requirements to join
You need to have a Paypal or moneybookers account. If you don't have it, you can still play and enjoy high level of competition and measure your skills.No aliasing
Despite some of you who highly enjoy making aliases with detailed backgrounds, I don't. I won't be paying any aliases and fortunately we know how to detect them. Even if we don't find an alias's true identity, we can detect whether he/she is an alias or not.No cheating scripts or modules
Well forget the cash prize for now. We never allowed any scripts in our league anyway and we've banned those who cheated for at least two months. Since prize is on stake here, our tolerance on cheating will be much lower. You may get yourself banned for several months. For example getting banned for current season and the season after that.Latest W:A update
Unfortunately there are cheat modules out there. Some of them only work on older W:A versions; Specially 188.8.131.52.
We do not allow those versions on our league. If you do use them for performance reasons, you need to fix your computer. If you have absolutely no other way, you should avoid playing certain schemes only if we approve.Advertising
