Upcoming tournament announcement
In my mailbox today, I received an email regarding a series of upcoming QuakeWorld tournaments. The email is from a Swedish player called zingao, who promises to organize monthly tournaments with cash prizes.

Since I received a statement, I'll let the man talk for himself.

Read on for the statement
Statement wrote:

Greetings fellow Quakers!

I'm Andréas, also known as "zingao". Within the next couple of weeks, I will be making
a total of three teasers about a tournamentproject that I've started. The
tournament is hosted and play in Europe, but of course people from other regions are
allowed to participate.

The tournament will be hosted on a regular monthly basis, and a prizepool is promised.
I will let you know right away that I will put pure cash into the prizepool, as I prefer
the ability to win pure cash and not computergear or the like. I sincerely hope that
this will reactivate many quakers and make people practice more - making the awesome
QuakeWorld scene more active than ever.

If the tournament results in just 2 new players starting QuakeWorld, or just having 5
people watching the livestream for the first time, I believe I've succeeded and I will
be satisfied.

Why am I doing this?
I love this game, and it has everything it needs - the dedicated people, the awesome
community, etc. It's time to pick up your rocketlaunchers again!

What do I require from the community?
Even though you don't necessarily feel like you're going to win the tournament - sign
up anyway! Let everyone know that we are here to stay. Watch our good
quality livestream, chat in it and listen to the awesome casters.
And of course - talk about us, mention us. Help me help you!

If you want to give any suggestions - just query me on quakenet, anything is welcomed!

Find us on irc: #HoH - Hymn of Hope (Quakenet)

"Cool, I hope for a rookie tournament!"

That would be quite tricky if there's cash involved. Plenty of good players would use trickery to get in the tournament for easy win

Thank you all, help promoting it!

Beside always mentioning the "rookies" I would also like to see something for the "casuals" ;-)

We need to bring more rookies 1st than they need to train to get better for being competitive players .
