I have decided to start a little project to sponsor games on AfreecaTV using Patreon. I am aiming for a modest goal of $100 a month to sponsor a single BO5 series between pros on AfreecaTV. While it normally costs less to sponsor a match, offering a higher rate will make it easier to 1) obtain replays, which will be offered as rewards, and 2) build relationships with participating players.
I am not promising much, but I think that this would be an interesting small scale project for us to try as a community.
I understand not everyone will be interested in this. That's okay. That said, if this does interest you, click the link and look around. Maybe 10 of us can chip in $10 each and get an interesting monthly club going.
While, this is just a dream at this point, my hope is to eventually build enough of a relationship to occasionally have patron-only live Q&As with select players.
If I don't reach my goal by the end of the month, then it just wasn't meant to be.
EDIT: Apparently, I can't pledge to my own campaign. Doh!
UPDATE: The project is a go! First cast scheduled for 3/3. See new thread here.
