Chivalry: Medieval Warfare 8v8 TO Tournament

Background:

We've all pubbed for countless hours in this amazing game.  Good times and beheadings have filled our months with sadistic joy, but does this game offer anything more?  Is it simply a glorified random hack-and-slash?

Those of you who have ever played this game in cooridinated play know that this is a TEAM GAME meant to be played as a TEAM.  It will never be balanced in duels.  It should never be balanced purely on pubs.  Speaking personally, I can say that I've had more fun in this game side-by-side with my comrades than any other.  Playing where I can trust my teammate to have my back rather than LMB slash it.

There actually have been competitive events for Chivalry in the past, but they've been largely restricted to clans large enough to sport teams of active participants vying for bragging rights.  This is great, but it isn't something that is going to inspire people to take the competitive side of this game seriously.  We wanted to do something to motivate people to join teams and really experience this game the way it is meant to be played.

We wondered if there was a way to add more drama (not that more drama is necessary as anyone who has taken part in some of the epic battles we've had so far can attest to), inspire participation from people who otherwise wouldn't be interested, and see what these teams could do when they really had something to gain.  Obvious answer: Ask if this was something they'd be willing to support financially!

The Plan:

Host an 8v8 TO Tournament with a cash prize funded by YOU.  This is a revolutionary genre that has astounding potential.  It is a game like no other and we want to do it right.

EVERY MATCH WILL BE STREAMED.  

EVERY MATCH WILL BE REFFED.

The rules and more information can be found here.

And the most exciting part...

TORN BANNER WILL MATCH EVERY DOLLAR YOU RAISE

That's right.  The developers will match every dollar you raise toward the prize pool.  Since we plan on first prize taking between 66% and 75% of the total prize pool, and Torn Banner will be matching your contribution 100%, you can actually stand to MAKE A PROFIT by contributing if you win the tournament!

So please show your support for the competitive Chivalry scene by either contributing or by checking out the streams/VODs, participating, or just promoting it!
