Voison posted a topic in News & AnnouncementsWith the announcement of MLG's PPV plan for the Winter Arena, vVv Gaming is proud to announce that we have now officially partnered with MLG! This partnership means new ways for vVv to fund our teams and players. Starting with the Winter Arena, vVv will be providing a banner link that will allow us to receive a portion of the proceeds for all stream passes purchased HERE. So when you're buying your MLG Winter Arena pass, make sure to use THIS LINK so that vVv is supported by your purchase! Although StarCraft 2 is not everyone's preferred game, it's significance as an eSport is unprecedented. We are on the cusp of reaching critical mass and breaking out into mainstream popularity – but there are still challenges ahead. For eSports to remain viable, we have to make full use of this opportunity and make sure that MLG becomes a financially viable organization. To you, that means supporting the Winter Arena with your dollars, regardless of your gaming affiliation. Remember that StarCraft's success now paves the way for all future eSports going mainstream, while the failure of StarCraft 2 could signal a withdrawal of sponsorships and funding. If you want your game to be next to break into the mainstream, MLG needs your support now. In order to help, vVv Gaming will be holding a live event on Mumble all weekend during the Winter Championship, a "virtual barcraft" to allow people of all stripes to come together, learn together, and share in the experience. Whether you do not know anything about StarCraft 2 or if you're on the verge of making Grandmaster League on ladder, please feel free to come on and enjoy the comeraderie and community.
