Have you ever dreamed of gaining anything else than a cool new profile-picture by playing the automated tournaments back in the old times? Well, here we go..

An fascinating new pilot project for the W3Arena tournaments has taken hold on the administrative staff, war3eu and the strategic head of the server, so we can proudly present a new facet of the automated tournamets on friday!

Dating from the 3rd of April,  there is going to be an opening event, which is the first of its kind, for the iteratively funded W3Arena tournaments - we are speaking of nothing less than a pecuniary prize for the winner.

From now on, every fridays tournament will come along with a prizepool of 25$ for the winner.

The process of the payout:

If you are a W3Arena user and manage to gain the victory in one of the friday automated tournaments, then follow these steps:

  • get in contact with war3eu via skype or email (
  • attach a proving replay of you winning against your opponent in the finals

We hope that you will enjoy our new feature and wish you all good luck and have fun competeting against your opponents.

Best regards
your W3Arena team.

Hm - not quite sure what to think here. Considering that this is a project that people dedicate tons of their spare time to and not yet having forgotten the financial issues of the past, I am a bit sceptical. Not too long ago, a donate button was rather prominently placed on the front page, reminding us all of the fact that nothing is completely for free. Now when wc3 seems to see a second spring, there is money to give away for tournament vicotries all of a sudden? Don't get me wrong, I am happy to see lots of tournaments popping up, "old" players returning, the "users online"-counter climbing to new heights and all that. I just think that keeping w3a up should be of first importance. I truely hope that all those good news are not just mere fragile soap bubbles. If they are, I'd much prefer another half a year of w3a instead of 4 or 5 payed tournaments. Anyways - it will be hard to keep the pace of recent days but you seem to do your best. Nice work up to now, despite the inevitable little quirks and issues. Good luck and good bye for the moment.

yue: I think the current success of WC3 and - as you rightly say - second spring has brought so many people back to participating in the scene that it won't be much of a problem to raise money if needed. I think it's the perfect timing to host tournaments with a prize pool. Prizes are what lets some people return and others stick. WC3 might thus become attractive to sponsors once more. Maybe ZOTAC does notice something ... :-)

Nice point YUE! I hope the second spring will last to a summer! Will there be some coverage of the tournament? like a possible way to see top 16 from each tournament! And perhaps a ranking with points, so people will get like 1 p for a top 16 and 3 p for top 8 and 7 point for top 4 and so on :) I hope it will be a succes!
