Card Merchant International Cancer Society Charity Drive - Flesh and Blood online event
With the release of Monarch and combined efforts of multiple international community superstars and businesses, together the Flesh and Blood community aims to do something truly remarkable.
In light of the hard year that community champion Cayle McCeath has had with his father battling and being taken by Cancer, Nick Butcher and Matt Rogers have come together to make grassroots efforts for all those that have had to face similar battles.
The community wanted to help and being the amazing community we are, we really can! Cancer has negatively effected almost every person in the Flesh and Blood community at some point through friends and family and this is our chance to stand up against it and make our passion and efforts count.
Nick Butcher and Matt Rogers are coming together with international community members, businesses and content creators to launch the largest collaborated effort in Flesh and Blood history. Together we are creating an event with the aim to attract over 200 players and be the largest FAB event on the planet to date!
Half of all entry fees and money gathered will be donated directly to the Cancer Society with the other half going towards a massive amount of prizes and postage around the world of these. There will be prizes for finishing highly in the tournament but even more to be given out by small competitions held by our many content creators and random prize draws.
*How the event works*
Players will sign up to the event via Card Merchant website, entry contribution will be $50NZD ($35USD/30Euro). Pairings for round 1 will then go up Monday 11am NZT/4pm PST and all players will then have 48 hours to complete their match with opponent on TTS or webcam. TTS will be the default for this event due to low availability of Monarch cards as Unlimited will not have yet been released.
Event will be Classic Constructed format.
(After receiving some feedback from players and taking into consideration that Classic Constructed season is starting up with road to nationals, we decided CC was the better choice for this event).
This event will run over 2 weeks with 48 hours between each round so players can work around each other with very differing time zones and work schedules. We will cut the the top8 at the end of a 10 round swiss to crown a champion!
Nick Butcher has been reaching out to content creators and we have almost every content creator I can name in the world on board to help cover and promote this event, so it is going to be wild and fun to be apart of!
We have set up a go fund me as well for community super stars and businesses that wish to contribute a little more to the cause as well as people that may not be able to pay but would still love to gift an entry fee to get behind what we are doing. ANYONE contributing in any way will be in the draw for many of the prizes including the 1 of a kind playmat donated by LSS:
All major donors and contributors will be publicly named and thanked for their amazing support. So far we would like to give our deepest appreciation to the following and will add to this list as we go:
