forg1veforget The prize pool is in Bitcoin so everyone can confirm where the money goes.
I seriously would prefer a non-money tournament over one pestering the world any time. The transparency seems hardly like a valid argument to me, as neither STK nor 0AD is holding a known "Wallet" for BitCoin transactions.
Btw.: Isn't 0AD sitting on a pile of money, not knowing what to do with it since years anyway?
Imho the aspect of community building/publicity for FLOSS games of an organized tournament would be more important than financial support of projects/prize money.
