That includes free Tetris Team planning/meetings, free web hosting, free web designer, adjusting of guidelines, creations of “how to” guides, work on creating solid sign-up form to collect all needed data for specific year and then quickly turn to data adaption right after, time slot assignments for both players and referees, equipment check of player equipment, referee views during streams, bracket setup, help with tech questions before & during tournament, information for viewers before, during & after tournament, commentators, dedicated hardware for stream, international communication within an international team to make sure it is all executed correctly while bringing updates in multiple forms, trophy for winner and everything surrounding organising an event we want to improve year after year.
… and that is “just” the CTEC Online.
We love what we are doing and we want to do it better, so we encourage participants to donate.
In other words: We want to grow with the community, share Tetris with many more and we want to jump to the next level together – with you. Your support also helps us with: Restoration of consoles, CRTs, controllers, better prizes to the winners, upgrade of equipment for online streaming from “on location” including microphones for audience, mics for speaker booth/interviews, upgraded dedicated computer to use intelligent software that can collect all the data while also sending out a stream with stats during live game, extra internet boost and back-up hotspots, extra security of all data, server backup, new systems for more tournament stations, kick off for starting a webshop with unique products, new original Tetris projects/events, expenses relating to organizing and expanding, financial aid for the many organizers, winners, speakers and more who need to travel – we might even be able to buy pizza slices to the team who works hard to bring you the best possible Tetris moments.
Yup, you will be able to say that you help us with all this!
No donation is too little and we will be sharing our appreciation on the website – unless you prefer that we don’t – without stating the amount you have donated directly – but as levels/categories like Level 1: 1-10 euros or similar.
But wait a minute, you should also get something!
– Which is why we offer: Discount on first purchase in upcoming webshop! Within a year of your donation, you will get a 1 percent discount off your first/next purchase. For every euro up until a discount of 50% (50% is maximum percent discount) and/or a total discount up until 100 euros (maximum discount in euros is 100). Donating 50 euro now will give you 50% off later until whatever maximum you reach first.
For example: You donate 50 euros now and buy a mug, tee and other goodieslater for the total value of 150 euros, you get a 75 euros discount off as a thank you. You are also welcome to claim 1 percent discount for 1 euro donation.
A great way to maxout & to give us a pad on the shoulder while you for example buy a limited edition CTEC 2021 t-shirt or mug.
