25 benefactors have entered into the GCS2 $40+ benefactor tournament for a chance to win a GTX 1080! It will be this Sunday at 14:00 BST. I will be casting on https://twitch.tv/AECoH

The seeding has been done based on combined automatch rank of best Allies/Axis 1v1 faction https://gcs2.org/standings/players/benefactors

(how it was calculated)

The tourney will now only last one day! - The format will consist of a best of 1 for any match above round of 16, then best of three from there onward.

(Note: If we get two GCS2 attendees in the final we may postpone the final until GCS2 itself)

See you this Sunday!

I am going to constantly make the joke that the Benefactor Tourney is ESL NA though as the top five seeds are Ciez, Momo, Redwings, Tomkaze and Lyconious you have been warned :D

I replied to GCS2 qualifier players that asked "GCS2 players wouldn't be allowed to play" this ended up meaning the eight players that have qualified to GCS2 itself.

I was deliberately vague with players so as to ensure everyone fought their hardest for a chance to play in GCS2 itself and didn't focus on trying to win a GTX 1080 from the benefactor tourney. This was a wise decision and I stand by it. The best players that are now playing in this tournament are all large benefactors like momo and ciez who wanted to attend live.

That said had you donated regardless of eligibility to compete to play in the benefactor tournament you would have received an email asking you to sign up to play in the Benefactor Tourney clarifying things, you did not so you did not. It's a pretty fair system when you think about it like that.

Was hoping for a less serious reply (my fault there). On that, I agree with everything you have said.

Note: Brickman also suffered the same GCS2 quali player bug. The $300 donator also can sadly no longer attend the event due to the expecting of a baby brickman! He has been allowed late entry into the tourney.
