This is ridiculous. NACs were part of the "Grand Slam" in AoE2; Nili wouldn't have had problems with any tournament coordinator to get that prize pool for N4C.Nili allocated 95k for his own tournament though. And it also was streamed on his own channel. It looks like he took the job, not to allocate funds fairly, but only for boosting his own channel.
And I guess, financially N4C was a big loss for him, not even considering the image damage.
