IGL is Fundraising!
 
Hey All,

As some of you know, for the last 18 months I have been working with a group of individuals to revolutionize eSports. IGL is in the process of raising funds through personal investments, government grants, angel investors and group fundraising.

We're now accepting donations and looking to get the word out. If you could like our link on Facebook and share, it would be greatly appreciated.

We have a long way to go!

Share on facebook, or donate: www.gofundme.com/PlayIGL
Like our facebook & share our link: www.facebook.com/PlayIGL

Additionally,
Follow us on twitter: www.twitter.com/PlayIGL

Please pass on to your friends, family, steam friends, IRC, forums ect - and ask them to pass onto theirs and so forth. We're looking for help to get deep reach.

Thank you to all for your help.

Flawless logic Oaties. Sure got him.

Well, the thing is, I would have no problem donating to IGL, and I probably will eventually.

But its a league site. I have heard nothing about a potential Fortress Forever or Team Fortress Classic league, and guess what? Those are the only games I care about. Why would I want to donate money to a league if it doesn't even host the games that I want to play. I don't care for CS:GO or TF2 or the other trash coming out.

If they had an FF league, I'd consider donating as well, but we need a lot more players for that to happen.

I'm putting together a serious post for ESR (the Quake community), GameSpot, and I'm also looking into streaming the pickup games that I spectate to get some awareness for the game. Great things have small beginnings; hopefully a combination of these things will help put FF on the map.

Hopefully my mediocre laptop will be able to effectively stream; if it can't, hopefully someone here can.

What are your specs + net speed? I could help you out with that

2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Nvidia 8600M GT

4GB RAM

I get roughly 550kb/s most of the time. It fluctuates from 500 to 600.

NeonLight 02-22-2012 06:47 PM

The processor is really what's holding you back. You might be able to stream if its like 800x600 but its a very slim chance

Atreuce 02-22-2012 07:01 PM

I can help with streaming or whatever is needed. Alex just hit me on steam if you need me.

I'm on a i7-2600k sandy bridge 16gb ram, and a 30/4 net connection.

Damn. I don't think I'll even attempt it then; my computer barely functions now as it is. :| Here's hoping for a replacement within a year... :thumbsup:

I think the man above me is better off doing this sort of thing.

Regardless, I will definitely be making enticing advertisement posts on ESR and GameSpot, the two sites I frequent.

NeonLight 02-22-2012 07:10 PM

I'm waiting on 2 parts for my new PC and I'll be definitely ready to stream FF. www.twitch.tv/voss423 is all set and ready to go

Awesome! :) Can't wait! Will definitely be tuning in if/when it becomes available.

absolute 02-28-2012 05:57 PM

Glad I sparked some discussion.

We actually managed to land an investor, and the Group Funding is no longer needed!

Thanks all :)

CaptainAhab 02-28-2012 11:16 PM

Awesome! Glad to hear everything worked out. Good luck.

Not at all.

In fact... nothing in this thread really has anything to do with this mod...

I don't understand your point. Yes, he's involved in more than 1 thing.

Even if he was using FF to help advertise his League, he's done a shit ton of work to begin with. 400+ People on Facebook. He's spent his own money helping F-F, who cares if he advertises his League on here.

And of 400 of those people, I dont know how many actually have played since they've favorited that facebook page. My guess is next to zero. What did he put his money in to, just curious?

I thought you were here to help this community grow? I don't get it. You post a thread on something non-productive about Fortress Forever, despite the reason why you came here in the first place. I don't get it. Why are you advertising a fundraiser for something this community isn't even apart of?

I don't like this. Squeek, I could really use one of your intelligent markers right about now D:

squeek. 03-17-2012 11:05 PM

This isn't that hard. This thread is about something other than FF. If you're not interested in it, then you're more than welcome to ignore it. Don't ever forget that the FF devs are volunteers and are capable of being involved in more than one thing. The only valid criticism of this thread is that it potentially belongs in the Other Games forum.

That said, I'm locking the thread as its purpose (fundraising) is no longer necessary.

Money into (affective) advertising.

We now have 400 additional people we can reach to when we release updates & patches. I will grow this number again upon completion of the new FF site.

We're a gaming league. I posted it on gaming community sites I am a part of. It is by no means a way to take from FF. I have been a member of these forums for much longer than I have been a member of the Marketing team, and would have posted here regardless.


All I can gather is you tried to stir the pot & create some momentum against me, and you have failed.

I have contacts & plans ready to push forward with FF Marketing, however a few major factors are holding them back.

Hope all is clear now =)
