Final Words
--------------------------------------------------------


The past seven days seem to have gone by in the blink of an eye. From the start of the Opening Ceremony which almost broke the server to the epic finale of the Championship, the Tournament of Ages has shown what happens when a community comes together. We, the staff, wish to thank every single person who attended this event (even the ones who could only attend one night). We've had a tremendous amount of fun putting this together, and we only hope you shared our enjoyment to the fullest.

Some people have asked just how big the Tournament of Ages really was, so without further ado, here's a glimpse of the stats:
  • Over 400 registered competitors
  • Over 100 represented guilds
  • 1,520,00 gold raised in prizes
  • $380 raised in prizes for commissioned art and Warcraft merchandise
  • Over 900,000 gold raised from Date Auctions towards prize raffles
  • 41 members of staff (not including booths)
  • 35 accumulated hours of scheduled events
  • ~27 gallons of consumed coffee

Just from looking at this list, you can start to see how much effort was put towards the tournament's success. One thing missing from this list, however, is perhaps the most important of them all: the money we managed to raise for the Make-A-Wish Foundation to support kids in need. In the span of 7 days, we raised $1,045 for charity. To everyone who donated, thank you.

The next iteration of the Tournament of Ages will be tentatively scheduled for August of next year. On April 29, we'll be hosting an open Discord meeting for all to attend and contribute. Information on how to participate will be posted on this website. Until then, we wish all of you a happy experience on the World of Warcraft as we embark on Legion.

Until next time!

One month ago we set a goal to raise $1,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation over the course of the Tournament of Ages. Last night, midway through the tournament, we exceeded our goal. A tremendous thanks to everyone involved with helping make this possible. It just goes to show that our community can and will accomplish great things when united behind a great cause.

You can still donate towards the goal by visiting our Twitch stream at Twitch.tv/ToAMG

We hope everyone is enjoying the tournament!

The staff would like to thank you for participating in this year's Tournament of Ages. We've had a lot of fun working with the roleplaying community to put together a memorable event. In a few weeks, a video of the tournament will be posted here on the website and YouTube. We ask that everyone who took screenshots of the event to post them in our gallery so they can be used for the project.

We hope everyone had a great time and look forward to next year!
