    Another Summer LAN poll

    - July 10 + 11 (Sat + Sun)
    - Chicago (Ignite)
    - $50 entry fee
    - Entry fee includes free hotel room for Fri, Sat, Sun nights (shared, 5 people per room)
    - Each person (who takes advantage of the free hotel room) is required to put down a $30 deposit at the hotel, which will be given back at check-out, assuming there are no extra room fees
    - Unlimited computer access for Sat + Sun (pay for your own time if you want access on Friday night)
    - Total prize pool for DotA tourny anywhere between $2000-$6000 (payout to top 3 teams, split between team members)
    - $5 entry fee for a minigame (wc3 customs) tourny involving multiple different games, small cash prize pool only from entry fee money + maybe some non-cash prize
    - By paying the entry fee and entering the tournament, you agree to allowing pics/vids to be taken and will take part in a short interview if asked.
    - If you want the free hotel room, you would have to pay the entry fee in advance (say 1 month in advance, paypal or other methods, non-refundable)

    None of this is guaranteed, this is simply what appears to be one of the more likely situations at this time, so I'd like to get a more accurate representation of possible attendance.

    Remember, this is a "Would you attend", not a "Would you prefer this". - Bottom line, can't make everybody happy.

    So this isnt the NADS Lan right? This is gonna be a second lan?

    Sounds good, nice prize pool, good date and hotel being free for paying the entry fee is good.

    Not sure what "NADS lan" you're talking about. If you're talking about the one I had that big survey for, this is the same one.

    Remember, this is a "Would you attend", not a "Would you prefer this". - Bottom line, can't make everybody happy.

    Would this LAN be more based for people who have sponsors and can afford to go since the prizes would be REALLY decent, or is it more for the community.

    $2000-$6000...

    that seems like the highest amount offered at a NA lan considering the netolic Lan only offered was MUCH lower than this this

    No, it's specifically geared towards non-sponsored people - free hotel, etc. Basically making it so if you get yourself there, you get super cheap accommodations (just entry fee which includes hotel)

    And the prize pool is nowhere near guaranteed, it was just an example. It would not be the highest prize pool either - chicago fire n ice december '07 at ignite had $6k just for first place - i dont remember 2nd and 3rd, but i think it was maybe 3k and 1k for 10k total.

    I'd rather (and according to the survey, most other people too) take part of the prize pool and put it towards free hotel rooms for everyone, to encourage people to travel since you would only have to cover your gas/bus/train/plane ticket.

    aka I want as many people to come as possible - I don't care how much money the winners walk away with, but they should be able to more than cover their expenses.

    100% Nirvana can participate in this event, depending on the date.

    Nirvana will be running about 20-40k tournament in Beijing, China in summer, not exact sure on month and date. Let's hope times don't conflict

    Hope this pulls through
