Hello everyone, I'm super extremely excited to announce this little project on behalf of Dodger Coffee Co and everyone who has helped and is involved so far. To those helping I hope I've said it enough, but if not, thank you. This is a passion project from one StarCraft/e-sports fan to anyone who wants to participate.
Here's what we're doing:
Dodger Coffee Co Pro/Am
A chance for every day members of the StarCraft 2 community to get a chance to play against the best players in the world. Directly supporting players and streamers, the Dodger Coffee Co Pro/Am will make 2 professional players available to play against to fans and community players. Hosted by one of your favorite casters, The Pro/Am gives you a chance to play against a legend.
Specifics for DCC Pro/Am #1:
Date & Time: Saturday January 13th, 10am PST.
Channel/Host: BaseTrade TV
Professional Players: Neeb & Elazer
- Two professional players will be available for a minimum 4-hour time slot that has the potential to grow.
- Anyone can get in line to play the players on a first come/ first serve basis. (If you are at the end of the line, you probably will not get to play because player time will run out). If picked, the person gets to choose which pro they would like to play against.
- So that we don’t have to watch hours of pros absolutely smashing all of you, a series of handicaps will be applied to the pros based on suggestions made through donations.
- All purchases of Coffee products (using special Pro/Am code) and donations can extend how long the players will be playing for and how much the players and streamer will be paid. We call the way we calculate how long the will be playing the "Coffee Pot".
- If a Coffee purchaser wants to play, Coffee purchases jump players in line in front of people who haven't purchased coffee. Coffee Purchasing also gets you in line before the general line opens. (Coffee Line opens now, general line opens about 1 hr before event.)
- The Coffee Pot is a tiered table that shows how much Players/Casters get paid (not published publicly) and how long the stream will go based on the amount of Coffee purchased and donations received. The more that is donated or purchased, the more the players and casters get and the longer they will play. As the Coffee Pot increases, it takes more donations and purchases to extend the stream/play time (We totally stole this idea from Cards Against Humanity’s big, pointless hole.)
- People can donate any amount to directly support the Casters/Players and extend the tournament. People who donate at least $5 can suggest a handicap for a pro to have to follow. (Mods can determine if the handicap will actually be used based on what is appropriate and interesting).
- The Pro/Am discount code gives a Coffee purchaser a 10% discount on the coffee purchased.
- A Best of 3 showmatch between our pros will happen towards the middle of the stream.

About Dodger Coffee Co:
Dodger Coffee Co's Original Coffee is a modern take on Americana Diner Coffee. Made from responsibly, ethically, and sustainably sourced specialty grade beans, the coffee is a dark smooth roast, low in acidity with hints of cocoa, caramel, and peanut tastes. The coffee is roasted in the US by a small, craft coffee company. Small batch roasting ensures that the coffee you receive is of the highest quality and was made recently for maximum freshness.
Founded by Dodger, this small craft coffee company is proud to bring you the StarCraft 2 Pro Am as a way to support players and casters of eSports.
