Strongly considering another 1v1 tournament

Edit: Fuck it, let's do it. To enter, simply donate as usual with the button up there, or to iamnotthorrbo@yahoo.com. Please add a note with your summoner name! Paypal takes 30 cents and 3$ per transaction, so you can donate like $5.48 for me to get the full $5, but it doesn't really matter.

Signup list as of 7/13:

About a year ago I had a 1v1 tournament on stream, it took place over the course of two days. It had a $5 buy-in, and the winner got some amount of RP that I don't remember. I think we had 30~ entries, stream was active and it was great. I casted every match and as far as I know, everyone had a lovely time.

I want to do that again. I'm taking sign-ups now for Saturday, July 26th. If I don't have enough entries, I'll push it back another week to Saturday, August 2nd. First of all, I need enough people to sign up to begin with, and I have no idea how many people are willing! To have anything worth watching, we'll need at least 8 sign-ups, but I'd like to shoot for sixteen.

Rough details, for those interested:

$5 buy-in means you donate $5 and you get a tournament slot. All money raised goes to food, housing, and medication - you all know my deal by now.
It'll be a 1v1 on Summoner's Rift.
It will be blind pick, but each player will get 3 bans. Bans will be typed in chat and done manually.
First tower, first blood, or first to 100 cs are our win conditions.
Most of our matches will just be a best of 1 so we can get through them.
Semi-finals will be best of 3, finals will be best of 5!
First place will be determined by how many people enter, and I have no way of knowing how interesting this will be to people.

Every match will be watched and commentated on by me, maybe someone else of a higher status if I can find anyone, I don't know.

Prize: Probably at least $20~ in RP for first place, but it really depends on how many people sign up. More sign-ups, more prize pool. I had some people donate RP cards specifically for the prize pool as well, so maybe that can happen again!

If you are interested, please let me know! I'm taking sign-ups now for Saturday, July 26th. If I don't have enough entries, I'll push it back another week to Saturday, August 2nd.
