Hello all, I am happy to reveal my next tournament! First off though, I just concluded hosting my first AOE2 tournament which finished last month. A 1v1 Nomad only open to all elos and spread out across over 6 brackets. The tournament was very well subscribed and we had over 200+ people sign up. I was very surprised. My initial plan was to limit brackets to 32, but I decided to let people sign up to extend the tournament. There were 487 total games of Nomad played so there was a **** load of different matchups with the settings of the tournament. I am very happy with how it went and I am now pleased to be moving on to my next edition of Nomad Wars.
Nomad Wars Duos is a 2v2 event using the standard DE 'Nomad' style maps. This will be a CHARITY event! In Nomad we spend our time looking for a place to our TC and quite often or not we need a helping hand from someone else too. Because of the nature of Nomad, it only seemed right to have an event in aid of Homelessness. Homelessness is quite a terrible thing and a lot of the people affected by it are quite misunderstood and marginalised. The Winter is a terrible time of year and I couldn't imagine doing it on the streets. It's time for us to help out some people with Nomad gameplay IRL.
I'm aiming for $500, but I'm confident we can smash that! I have created a JustGiving page which will deal with all of the donations separately, I will have no power in touching the donations in case anyone has any concerns. Even if you don't participate ANY donations would be much APPRECIATED https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/nomadwarsduos
The charity I have chosen is for Emmaus. Emmaus is a charity aimed at providing work and housing opportunities for the homeless whilst improving outcomes for individuals effected and society as a whole, you can find out more here - https://emmausglasgow.org.uk/how-we-help I'm really hoping everyone can get behind this event and try make a difference for some less fortunate.
