Yep.. Its built for this purpose.. every kill for example take money from the one who dies and gives it to the killer.. And theres no "play" money its all real money.. Interesting project. Its on open beta.

Damned tempting.  Why can't they do this with a fighter pilot sim?

I do not like to be the Harbinger of Doom, but having visited the site, it looks like a scam to me... they continually assure you that all of the money goes to the players, and that the firm take no percentage of the jackpots, which is fair enough.  The only thing they do take money for is ammunition; i'm guessing there will be no knives or clubs in the game then! rotfl lol

i'm probably just too cynical.  :dunno:

Well when theyre intention is to make profit of that and get it popular, i doubt they would be stupid enough to jeopardize such with some stupid dodgy crap. And dont think about europe.. think about Korea and other places where this "pro gamer" culture is MUCH more advanced than europe/US.. that definitely has lot of potential.. I might not have a chance there but i definitely will look with a little bit of interest how it all goes. :)

Indeed.. especially cos melee is the standard on every game and i doubt many would make big profit with a knife...
Allthough.. My BF2 stabbing experience might come handy!  :biggrin:

Without any doubt really good players will get sponsors.. its not exactly a new thing.. But this time maybe someone would want to invest hard cash to a really good player instead of providing just equipment..
