Okay, when we click that link it takes us to a registration page. Could you please tell us about your group and what you are?

When you say backed by Muse Games, what does that mean? Does it mean you emailed Bubbles and he said it sounds like fun, or does that mean you're going on the website? Could a Dev help out here?

Child's Play is an amazing charity. We're a great community, and we've been successful in the past for raising money for a kickstarter, but not for a charity yet. It sounds like a terrific idea, and it's great of you to get the ball rolling. Having said that, I don't think any of the teams would rather take half the prize money for themselves rather than dedicate it all to Child's Play - so you might want to look at that part of your pitch again.

Would you please tell us about you and your group? I will admit it makes me nervous that you only have 26 members.

Yeah, thats why this smells like a scam. Sorry if its not. But forcing people to join a site to find out more info on it just raises that question. If you are trying to get this exposure then you are wanting it to be public accessible. No way I'm going to join a site I don't know just to see.

Apparently it's not, but hopefully Keyvias or someone will post about that.

They are apparently working on getting a sponsor for the whole thing as well...

Here is a link to a quick doc of it since there are no spoiler tags on the forums yet, and I don't want to clutter the thread.

15min games, that's going to be rough.

Alright that helps. Really we should have seen that to start. 15 mins will be interesting to see as it may finally shake things up enough to get rid of the silly meta.

I emailed Keyvias and he confirmed that they are legitimately trying to set up a tournament.  You will have a lot of work trying to coordinate your tournament schedule with the schedules of the existing organisers: cesports and the rob and dan show as well as fitting in with times that clans will be available but I wish you the best of luck.

Ok for some reason I have gotten no emails to these posts here! I'm sorry I haven't been back here to answer questions. Press Start Community is a new gaming community that will have it's own youtube channel for events and situations all about promoting gaming and those who participate in the events. It's also about promoting good sportsmanship and friendly gaming. As for the site unfortunately it's in beta and not everything has been tested yet. I'll see what i can do as to getting it public. As for the child's play charity website I'm working with them to see how to put the event on their page seeing as the event will take place over 15 weeks on the PSC youtube channel. I'm sorry if this seemed like a scam for a second however I promise this is not.

Bubbles as well as Matt have both given PSC the ok and have provided keys and Avatar items as well as provide raffle prizes. We will also have an interview up on the PSC channel on Youtube once it launches later this week. As for the half going to proceeds and the other half being used to get a gift for the winning team if the crew mates of the winning team choose to donate their prize to child's play it will be done in their name. I will leave that up to the winners however I did want to try and at least offer a prize to the winning team.

For the site feel free to register if you want. I will work on fixing it today and getting a public listing for this information. I will probably switch it to a forum instead of news post which the forums are accessible to guests. The website has only been open for less then a week and this has helped me to find some bugs so thanks for everyone for trying to check it out. If you have any other problems or questions feel free to email me directly at zeck@pscofficial.com

Thanks to everyone who has helped to verify this event! I just really want this event to go well since I am very excited about this game and I want to do right by it I've been very busy with it. I'll come back with an update once I either fix the old link or come back with a better link.

Ok I am unable to open the original post without making large scale changes so here is a link to a forum post I created that is open to the public and no registration needed to view the details.
