Play CS:GO, Win Money! ToxicRevolution Server Tournaments! - ToxicFrank - 06-09-2017
Wanna play games and win money? You could potentially win $75 dollars every 3 months by just playing. How?
As a thank you from us to you for choosing our servers we have decided to introduce quarterly tournaments. Every 3 months winners will be selected and each will receive $25. We will select the top ranked player from both the 1v1 and retake servers to automatically win $25 and the third will be selected from the top 10 players from 1v1 and retakes as well as 1 additional vote for the top ranked players from each. This means that if you win the retakes bracket you will receive $25 as well as have 2 entries in the drawing for the other $25. You could really go big and win both retakes and 1v1 and have a 4/22 or 2/11 chance of winning the last $25 to add to your $50.
How will we pay?
This is completely up to you, we can pay VIA PayPal, Steam Gift Cards, Game codes of your choice, or in-game items for any game of equal value to the $25.
How do I know where I am currently ranked among others?
You can check the tournament standings anytime by clicking here.
This all sounds really good but there have to be some restrictions right?
Yes, there are always going to be some basic rules. Not only do we see this as a method to give back to the people that keep our servers online but we see it as a way to expand our community and get people to meet each other. What this means is we want everyone to follow the rules below:
Yes! Assuming this goes successfully we will be continuing every quarter. One way we generate revenue to pay for the servers and website is through ads played on the servers and donations. We believe in being as transparent with you all as possible so we'll be upfront about our costs. We have to buy server tokens 3 times a week per server as they get banned for using !knife and !ws. Another expense is the actual server that hosts all of our servers, that costs us over $50 a month. We then have to consider the website which isn't too terrible coming in at just a little over $130 a year with all the included domains, SSL certs, and add-ons. Then we have the giveaways and tournaments. Basically, the more money we generate from ads (this comes down to the amount of people playing) goes towards expenses with giveaways, tournaments and uncovered overhead being covered out of pocket. If at some point we completely covered our cost we would not keep the money for ourselves, we would invest the extra capital back into more servers and if money still seems to stack up we will increase giveaway frequency and tournament winnings. It would be awesome to give out $100+ every tournament for each prize but that would be a long term goal.
Got any tips?
The only tip I could think of would be if you find yourself struggling to get into the servers consider donating to get a reserved slot, this way you will always be able to play and rack up the points.
How do I add my steamID to the forums account?
Very easy! There are two methods, if you are reading this without registering on registration you will be prompted to add your steamID in a required registration field. If you already have an account OR make your account using twitch, steam or another authentication method all you'll need to do is going to "User CP" in the top right under the arrow. Click the little blue cog on the left side of your screen and enter your steamID in the box. Please make sure that your steam ID starts with STEAM_1:... as the rankme plugin uses STEAM_1 instead of STEAM_0. Different sites will give you a different number there but your ID is the same with the 0 or the 1 so you can change the 0 to a 1 and not affect anything.
