The Diablo III Legendary Farming for Charity Competition
On July 21st at 11:00am PST (07:00pm CEST) many Diablo III streamers will be getting together to have a large legendary farming competition to help raise money for the
Children's Miracle Network (www.childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org
) that focuses on the welfare of young children served by its 170 associated hospitals nationwide.
And Save the Children (www.savethechildren.org
), an internationally active non-governmental organization that promotes children's rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries.
The contest will consist of a 6 hour legendary farming competition in both the solo and group variety that pits the top EU and NA server players against each other to see
which team can raise more donations.
How it Works
This event will be open to anyone that wishes to participate. The contestants will farm anything in the game they wish to try to obtain the most legendary item drops within
the 6 hours of the competition. They can choose to do this either solo or in a group; however, the leaderboards for the two will be separate. In addition, the contestants will
search out charitable individuals to receive pledges for their participation in the race that will go to the prize pool in the end. The pledges can either be in the form of
unidentified Mempos, Nat Rings or Witching Hours or gold. At the end of the 6 hours of farming, all of the farmed legendaries and pledged Unids and gold will
be put into 2 giant prize pools: one for the NA server and one for the EU server. Then we will start a charity raffle where every $5 donated to Children's Miracle Network
or Save the Children through extra-life will earn you 1 raffle ticket for the NA and EU prize pools respectively. The first place winner will receive 40% of the prize pool, the 2 runner up prizes will consist of 20% of the pool each and
the final 2 prizes will be 10% of the pool each. The ultimate winner of the competition is the server that raises the most funds through their charity raffle and gets bragging rights!
How to Participate
If you're a streamer and want to promote your channel, show off your farming skills or help raise money please add me at Chazhang#1745 on the NA servers with "Legendary Farming Competition"
in the friend request. The buy-in for anyone that wants their name added to the leaderboard of the event is a minimum of 3 Unid mempos solo or 10 Unid mempos for a team.
By participating you are stating that you will play fair and are willing to donate all of the legendaries you farm or pledges received during the 6 hours to the prize pool.
Although there is a leaderboard, the farming aspect itself is not very competitive if you don't want it to be since the ultimate victors will be the server that raises the most money.
How to Help Out
There are lots of ways that you can help out even if you don't want to stream. You can sponsor your favorite streamer with gold or Unid legendaries to help create a bigger prize pool.
You can participate in the charity raffle in the end by donating to Children's Miracle Network for your chance to win a bunch of gold and unid legendaries.
Finally you can help out by spreading the word to your friends about this event so we can get more people involved and raise more money!
