I currently am a Customer Support Specialist for http://gamebattles.majorleaguegaming.com/

The League of Legends community is not very big on this website because it is mainly console games however we do our best to promote PC games as well. Gamebattles is a website that is set up for competitive gamers that has its own ranking system, ways to set up matches, report matches and has a really big community. It is a good site and I don't see why it can't be big for League of Legends with how big of a community this game has. As you all probably know that MLG hosted a tournament at Anaheim and the best of the best League of Legends teams were there. Gamebattles has a partnership with MLG and is pretty much directly related. I am able to help make an online tournament for League of Legends if you guys would be interested in joining. Please vote in the poll. If we get enough votes I can probably get an online tournament for this game. If we get a big enough community for this game we will start to be noticed on Gamebattles and it would be another way to compete or meet players and teams in the competitive seen. Thank you for reading, I hope you guys are good for this idea.

Its going to take 100 or 200 votes to be convincing, if you haven't got your team mates to vote get them to do so as well please. It would be awesome if this could happen and we could be another site for competitive League.

If its like any other GB tournament, its going to be poorly run, poor rule set, and lack of admins

My 2 cents from when I played GB from 2004-the switch recently.

If they have a tournament you will probably have to pay a large amout ($25+) to enter per person and only get a pay out of around 30% of the pot. Most tournament that are going around in this community are free because many more people will join them that way. That system works for console because you have no competition at this point. Go4lol is free and gives about the same amount of combined money and RP to winners. So i said maybe because if they are free then yes. If they are run like every other tournament on the site then no.

Related to the ladders, since you switched to the new pay to be a gold/silver member stuff you have moved to CMRS as opposed to actually using tickets. For anyone in lol fourms who doesn't understand this think of someone disputing a win you had getting sent to the tribunal instead of to a Riot official. It just doesn't work.

So to be honest no, I wouldn't just because I do not believe GB is able to run a paid tournament on the same level as even half of the people who are running tournaments for free. However, I want you to prove me wrong. If you do then I will join some of your tournaments pay to play or not.

We are over halfway there, Head of the Online Tournament Department still needs more convincing. Keep voting and thanks you for your patience.
