„This page is to acknowledge that the entire WC3 community is standing behind Marcus `ThorZaIN´ Eklöf. While it won’t give him the accolade he should have deserved, maybe it can raise awareness that the community is behind him; that we support him, and stop this from happening to anyone in the future. Especially at an offline major event, this seems like the least we can do as a community.
The 750 USD goal would be the difference in prize money he would have earned from coming top 8 to top 4 (1250$ for top 8, 2000$ for top 4).
This page will be up for two weeks (ending March 8th, 2020) , and DuSt Gaming will fund the difference of 750$ when the page is closed…“
I love how the community stands together and tries to cheer up the victims of this truly dark day.
We are Warcraft3, Blizzard is clearly not.
