Stick Arena Tournaments, by Thunder Family

The Stick Arena website and presumably all Flash Player requiring clients are set to be deactivated very soon. So sad, I know.

But fear not! That’s right, your favorite tournament organizer Red (with the help of Thunder Blood @Outlaw.Ryder.Lc) is going to make one more last run for the hell of it! Thunder Family will be hosting a few tournaments to round us out for the last couple weeks of Stick Arena, finishing on 12/31/2020.

If having a little fun with Stick Arena is something that sounds even remotely interesting, please join our Discord server! You do not want to miss out on what could be the last few tournaments of Stick Arena, EVER. All are welcomed!

While the main focus will be on standard 1v1 and 2v2, other game modes such as CTF will also be in the mix. There is something in this for everyone, so please come join!

I will be posting updates in the Discord Server. Everything you need to know about the tournaments will be announced in there. In this thread, I will only post tournament results and the next tournament.

So yeah, hope to see some new faces in Thunder Family! OH and one more thing, there will be prizes! Yes, tournament winners (FIRST PLACE ONLY) will be entered into a fun little raffle of small prizes. 'Tis the season of giving!

Thanks for the voting guys! It was really close overall! It looks like I will be hosting one tournament every day from Monday 12/28 to Thursday 12/31.

Here is some information about the prizes:
Quite a few people have asked me recently, and I now have more definitive answers! Here’s how it’s going down. There will be 2 prize pools: the Winner’s Circle and the Lottery Circle.

The Winner’s Circle will contain 1 Prize of $20 and 3 Prizes of $10, with the rest of the prizes being $5 for each of the remaining players. You get into the Winner’s Circle by winning a tournament (or by being the next in line if the winner is already in the Winner’s Circle).

The Lottery Circle will contain 1 Prize of $10, then $5 for the remaining players. There will be 10 Lottery Circle winners drawn from the total list of participants excluding the Winner’s Circle entrant(s). If you participate more than once, your name will appear on the list more than once!

You cannot appear more than once in the Prize Pools, meaning you cannot be eligible for more than one prize. Spread the love bay bay!

With regards to the prizes themselves, they will be paid out in one of the following 3 options of your choice:

  1. Amazon Gift Card
  2. PayPal
  3. Discord Nitro Classic or Discord Nitro

I will stream all the drawings for these raffles on (tentatively) Sunday, January 3rd 2021 (!) at around 2 PM ET, live to Discord in Thundo Hundo Voice Channel. Late Christmas Gifts, but better late than never!

RIGHT NOW: I AM IN 2-DC! Answer my questions or complete my challenges to get spots in the Holiday Raffle above!

“Team Pink”: @Try @Toxicity @Vvs
“Three Shades of Gray”: @Outlaw.Ryder.Lc @Agent_Kaze TheGoldenRatio

Congratulations to Team PInk and The Green Machines! @Toxicity @Vvs @Ash Grendal joined the Winner’s Circle, and everyone else joined the Lottery Circle.

This prize pool sums to $185! Sounds like a lot, but really with all the tournaments that we have had in this game, the amount of monetary prizes that we should have had through all the years should have been way more than $185. For me, it’s an honor that the community has given me this platform to have this fun and share some of the love. Also, shout-out to @rrr and @Outlaw.Ryder.Lc for helping me out!

The prize raffle will be drawn some time tomorrow, 12/31, in Thunder Family Discord Server. See above posts for the invite link.

Overall, this has been a lot of fun, and I think I am leaving Stick Arena on a great note. Thanks again everyone, and hope to see you guys around in other communities :smiley: !
