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.

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.

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.

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

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...

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.

Glad I sparked some discussion.

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

Thanks all

Not at all.

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