Hey everyone!

The RO16
After yet another exciting weekend, sixteen participants have managed to fight their way out of the RO32. Haven't been keeping up with the competitive scene? You can watch back the entire tournament in this playlist. Four series have already been scheduled, so make sure to check out the stream schedule down below. We hope that everyone is enjoying the tournament thus far and we are looking forward to more great games!

The stream schedule can be found here

Forum Badges
A few months ago, we announced that we would be working on forum badges. Today, we've released the first batch of these badges: donator badges. You will unlock higher tiers of this badge for donating more. See the table below for the exact amount needed per badge. Currently, all badges have been granted using info from February 2016 to the present. If you donated before that or if you believe the donation amount shown is off, please contact us! Please note your donated amount might be off due to currency exchange (i.e €5.00 donated ≠ $5.00 donated)

Thanks to @tilanus for these magnificent badges!

Second Chance Tournament
Just like during the last tournament, we are hosting a second chance tournament again. The rules are largely the same, with the exception of the new veto rule, which was also present in the main tournament. For those of you who are not familiar with the concept of the second chance tournament, the second chance tournament is, as the name implies, a second chance to win the tournament. You may only sign up for the second chance tournament if you participated in the main tournament and if you did not get to the RO32. You can sign up until Sunday.

Sign-ups can be found here

Media Team Applications
Applications for the media team may still be submitted until June 4th. If you missed the previous news post, you can find more information here

FYI to whomever created the graphic:
Most common convention for USD is to put $1000, not 1000$.

Badges are exciting!

haha ya I have been planning on donating a little back to esoc during the tour streams. I did donate a little bit to various streamers already, like aiz, tls, veni. Gotta take care of the small crew of aoe3 streamers that keep things exciting during the off season and during slow times first.

Good Idea using badges.

I take it you have only counted donations to Noel's paypal?
And I take it that "live" donations are not counted?

Live donations do get counted! But we run into a small entity resolution problem where it's not necessarily easy for us to link someone's Twitch user to their ESOC user, meaning that we aren't counting some donations that we should be. Let us know if you think that this applies to you.
