      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

Gamers Impact - Last Man Standing & TF2 Events with Prizes for Finalists and Viewers

12 posts in this topic

Gamers Impact is very excited to announce our plans for the 2014 Extra Life event, featuring two charities which we have great admiration for.  We have a great day planned for October 25th, which features events in Team Fortress 2 and RUST.  All proceeds raised during these events will go directly to help support Extra-Life and the AbleGamers Foundation!  We will also be giving away over $5,000 in cash, gear, and merchandise, generously gifted by our sponsors, to our registered viewers and donors.  

 

Gamers Impact is excited to announce our event benefiting Extra-Life and AbleGamers. We have great admiration for both these charities, which dedicate their time to enriching children’s lives through gaming. All donations received during this event will go directly to the charities and, to promote the charitable spirit, our sponsors have donated over $5,000 in cash, gear and merchandise to give away to our viewers and donors.

Our 3 part charity drive kicks off with the Team Fortress 2 event and the RUST event, which will both run concurrently on October 25th.  We will continue the action into November with our final Counter Strike: Global Offensive event, during which we will also give away our grand prizes to a handful of lucky donors.

Gamers Impact’s first tournament features arguably four of the finest European & North American Team Fortress 2 teams ever to face off in an invite-only round-robin clash, with a prize pool of $250 and 6 ZOWIE mice

Date: October 25th, Starting At: 16:00 PM CEST / 10:00 AM EST
Event: A four team NA vs EU Team Fortress 2 tournament featuring:  Planet Express, ESHOCK eSports,  Street Hoops eSports, and Ding Dong Daddy.

Drawing Prizes Include:

  • ZOWIE mice
  • Headsets
  • Game surfaces
  • TF2 hats and in game cosmetic items
  • Jerseys
  • t-Shirts; and more! 

 

A complete lineup of prizes for this event can be seen here

 

 

For RUST we will be hosting a big 200 player, last man standing event with cash prizes for the winners.  The tournament is online, but we will be hosting the event live in Boston at the headquarters for Spartan Race, and will include audience driven freestyle by Anemic Raggs!  This is sure to be a total free for all, as each player will only receive one life!  Do you think you have what it takes to be the last man standing and possibly win a cash prize? Be sure to enter and give it your best shot!

Unfortunately there is no way to, at least not without customizing the hook and I'm not sure how to proceed with it really. Sorry.

Install "Stylish" firefox plugin (Maybe also available for other browser) and use css code to hide or modify any contents of this forum or any website.

Today's CounterStrike event is over now, correct? The write-up on this thread didn't mention it but it's mentioned https://vpsboard.com/gamersimpact/ and on the site.

 

How did the event turn out as a whole?

Yep, we're all done.  Raised a total of $6,612 and had a lot of fun.  Thanks to all of those who donated or assisted, and congratulations to those who won prizes.
