Aiming towards getting 8 teams in total. Players looking for a team or trying to form one I would suggest on joining up on our RTCW Discord Channel. The communications during the cup will also happen there!

We are planning to host a onedaycup atleast once a month for the next 6 months. In February there will be a 6v6 cup again. There are also plans to do small draftcups on a fixed day in the week to let old and newschoolers get used to the game.

We are very happy to announce that we now include the option for you to support our community via donations!
There are a few reasons we’ve decided to implement this:

As it stands, some of our community members are paying out of their own pockets to keep servers running for us all to play on. We’d like to ease their burden a bit by giving them part of the collected donations. Furthermore, RtCW’s current state of activity is unfortunately rather low. If offering prize money can create incentive to play, we’ll be happy to do so!
Lastly, our cup’s casters put in a lot of time and effort to bring the game home to you in style!
We too wish to give them a share of the donations for everything they do to make this happen.

A breakdown of how your donations will be used:
Our first priority is to cover the cost of the servers. Once we’ve attained that we’ll use the following percentages to divide the remaining donations:
Coverage of server costs: 40 eur

Streamers: 20%

Cup participants:
First place: 50%
Second place: 30%

You can already donate right now by clicking on the button.
Our streams will also feature the link to the donation page. Any donation you make during airtime will be shown on screen.

Thank you in advance for your support, any contribution—no matter what its size—will help!
