My name is Eliot "Yot" Carter -- I'm a Yank residing in Europe. I'm currently in the process of creating a website directed at pay per play tournaments & cash betting on various games -Sc2, Dota2, LoL etc.- (the legal ramifications are the current thing blocking me from putting the website up with full functionality). However, I'll be organizing a series of weekly & monthly tournaments on Dota2 (no buy ins before the website is launched) with cashprize on the line. The organization of such events will proceed in the following manner:
-Weekly tournaments: 50$ cashprize ; winner takes all ; 128 teams maximum. Saturday 18:00 CET checkin 19:00 CET start. -Monthly tournaments: 300$ cashprize ; 200-70-30 split ; 32 teams (top 4 from each week and 16 invited teams). Sunday 18:00 CET checkin 19:00 start.
The winners of the monthly tournaments will also be given 100$ worth of pay per play tournament registrations to spend as they wish once the website is up & running. The cashprize will be given out via paypal IMMEDIATELY after the win to the team captain.
For those that are worried about payments: I am a professional poker player that has been building towards a consequent bankroll over the past two years. But my love for DotA/Dota2 as a game and as an eSports is pushing me in this direction rather than professional high stakes poker. I also expect captains to put in a word of goodwill for me once the payments are completed.
