Short SummaryHello, I am Victor Maillé, also known as Nimbus, and I am the team captain of dnj.
We are a team that is competing in the new fps by Nadeo/Ubisoft called Shootmania. It's a fast paced shooter that's a mix between quake and counter-strike.
We are gamers that train everyday to make it in the e-sports scene and sadly we didn't qualify in the last tournament to get a trip to IPL5. From friends of the community or the 100 000$ prize pool, we really want to do the trip to vegas.
IPL 5(from november 29th till december the 3rd)
Some notable achievements from myself in this game(some with the same roster):
Semi-finals IPL PAX qualifiers

IGL SHOOTMANIA CUP #3 http://thek1ng.free....esultats&id=342
What We Need & What You GetWhat we need is 500$.
Now the whole trip is going to cost us about 1700$ but we can afford a big part of that. The 500$ is to help nimbus get from canada to Las Vegas(since his flight alone is 540$).
What do you get for donating? Well you get of course the eternal gratitude of us 3 for helping gamers reach their dreams. You can also select from the many perks where you can get from a simple thank you, nimbus doing crazy break dance moves while wearing a horse mask at IPL 5(video included) or some lessons.Why should we help you guys?
- Organizer of a weekly shootmania tournament called NASC
- One of the most helpful/respecting team in the shootmania community. We pride ourselves in trying to play professionally while helping others and not leaving them with degrading comments.
- We have been there on different teams since very early in the beta(the start for me personally) and we have worked hard for an event that we finally didn't qualify for(since we were a newly assembled team and had a lack of experience with this roster)
- We are trying to grow the shootmania community and IPL 5 could help us get a better leverage to better help this game become a success.
- We are considered a very good team even if we are a newly made one. Top teams comes to us for scrims and we do well in them. We will prove our worth with a chance like this.
- You get some perks if you help us
The ImpactShootmania has a lot of potential to step into the future of e-sports. With major tournaments like IPL and ESWC already, while only in the beta, shows promise. Big teams like fnatic, millenium, epsilon, infused, sk gaming, just to name a few, are already competing in this game.
You will help us grow the North-American shootmania community by adding another team to the ones competing at the IPL. We are already really involved in the community(maker of the NASC weekly tournament, tutorials. many threads and more) and would have the leverage to continue in the future to influence this e-sport.
