**BIG UPDATE JUNE 22 PLEASE READ SINCE NOBODY CHECKS THE ACTUAL KICKSTARTER UPDATES**
"Hell It's Aboot Time" is a planned LIVE event in Toronto, Canada, for near the end of August 2015. BaseTradeTV will be funding the event, as well as a couple of partners TBA. If you aren't aware who we are, we're a community casting channel on Twitch and our list of accomplishments, as well as events we have funded in the past can be found here: http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft2/BaseTradeTV . The cost of the venue, accommodations, production, lighting and many other things have run costs high, and left us with very little to no money for a prize pool. The goal of this Kickstarter is to raise an impressive enough prize pool to make the event not only noteworthy, but attract some high profile players to come and compete! Below we'll list and explain some of the rewards:
(*ORIGINALLY ALL COSTS / REWARDS WERE ORIGINALLY IN USD, BUT KICKSTARTER FORCES YOU TO CONVERT TO CAD, MAKING IT LOOK LIKE MORE MONEY THAN IT IS*)
Now if you are still reading you may be asking, "Why are $4,000 & $7,000 coloured differently?" It's because $1,000 at that tier level will be not added to the prize pool directly, but instead used to fund an online qualifier for that particular region, thus inviting a high profile foreigner to come compete! We intend to host online qualifiers + have an open bracket at the event itself.
Risks and challenges
One of the biggest risks is the event itself. It's our first time running a live event, and I'm sure things will go wrong here and there. Our best foot forward is making sure we are well prepared ahead of time and taking all the precautions to make sure the event runs as smoothly as possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
