    Dualcasted by Sorian and WPMarshall


    This idea was tabled a few weeks ago (thanks Gandalf :)) and I've been steadily working with a few people from the forums to take it from concept to reality.

    On behalf of the PA community, I'm proud to present what promises to be an extremely unique Planetary Annihilation tournament in support of a good cause! This tournament has been constructed around fundraising and promises to be a very enjoyable evening for players and spectators alike. Make a note in your diaries, because you'll be really miffed if you miss it, I promise you!

    Here's a page to track how much we're raising: http://www.gofundme.com/PlanetaryAblegamers

    The format:

    The tournament will consist of two rounds of four-way Free-For-Alls. There will be four FFAs in Round 1, with the winner of each taking a seat in the final round. We will be hosting some other variety events between tournament rounds which will rely heavily on audience interaction. You'll get some more details on these nearer the time!

    Let me go into a bit more detail on the FFA rounds themselves, because they're really rather different to what I'm sure you're all used to.

    In this particular tournament, our competitors will need a bit of help from you, the viewers. We will be making use of the Puppetmaster server mod, which Wondible kindly developed specifically for this tournament. We are currently working on making a menu, by which you can donate to our AbleGamers charity pot, and in return for your donation, you can buy some units for a player in-game.

    Is the underdog getting attacked from all sides? You can buy him a handful of defensive towers to keep him going. Somebody you don't like is strapping thrusters to a moon? Strap some on there for one of his opponents and blast him away into space. Not enough nuke spam in the game? Yes you can fix that.

    I'll be publishing a document shortly detailing all the rules and guidelines for donating and for spawning units into the game, and we'll also be holding some 'auctions' in the Twitch chat where you can bid on a selection of units not on the menu to gift to your preferred player.

    I've had to reformat it because to make the whole donation system work, it really needs to be focussed around a single channel. Sorian agreed to cast and at the time we thought that would mean we would have access to Uber's channel - again trying to increase exposure to maximise donations.

    I'm sorry I can't use everyone who's volunteered to help out but at the end of the day the main focus here is to make sure AbleGamers get as much $$$ as possible, so I've had to make a few changes to what was originally planned to facilitate that.

    This sounds like an amazing way to raise funds. How many spectators will be puppeteers?

    Just one - there will be three spectators per game; Sorian and Marshall, who will be casting, plus one other (as yet undetermined) who will be the puppetmaster.

    I should probably mention, I've only had a handful of PMs so far for people who want to compete - if you feel up for the challenge, please do PM to request a place!

    from watching the video of the test, this does look like it will be a lot of fun. The teleporters are an awesome thing to put in to shake things up :)

    Best way is to try and spread the word - the more viewers we get the better for AbleGamers :)
