Dear Vijay,

 

As promised, i am here to clarify all your doubts.

 

** There are always two types of people. One who always curse about things not being up to the mark and others, who step up and takes the responsibility of making things better than everyone's expectations. Please be a self-judge about which type of person you are.

 

As quoted by Mr. Vijay, "the scale of the planned event and the claims made are making me question them", i seriously wonder why is he questioning. Would it have been any "Big Brand" presents "India Gaming Carnival 2012", everyone would have been very happy. But the fact that i am investing my own money and doing this event is making people itching their head. We did try for sponsors. But every CEO & CFO of all the big brands DONT BELIEVE IN THE GAMING COMMUNITY OF INDIA. With a population of over 30 Cr of youths, nobody took their participation in the biggest Gaming Carnival of India seriously.

And to top up all these CEOs and CFOs, every other Forum from somewhere are pin-pointing the same instead of supporting it. Who are you guys supporting? The ones who never believed in you or the one who instead of all this, is taking step for a revolution in the gaming industry.

 

To quote Mr. Vijay again, "I have seen some small gaming events in India and even helped a bit in some lan parties, so I know these things are very expensive, loss making and difficult to pull off even on a small scale." I wonder why anyone is actually wondering that when, someone is actually doing something as big as giving a prize money of Rs. 1.5 Cr, he is well prepared for taking few blows if it goes into a loss (which it will not).

 

To quote my friend again, "Infact there were only 230,000 visitors for the Beijing Olympics and when 100,000 tourists were to Delhi for the 2010 commonweath games, then it was said there are not enough hotels to house them, transport for them or guides to show them around." My target audience is not all people coming from outside. The population of Delhi NCR (including New Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Greater Noida) has a population of over 3 Cr. I am just targeting just 1% of the total population to come to the Biggest Gaming Carnival of India. And this optimistic figure doesnt include thousands coming from different parts of the Country and another thousands coming from all over the world. Even if i reach 60% of my target numbers, i am still making the biggest numbers for any event in India. I don't think i am talking non-sense here.

And to achieve this, i already have 47 hoardings in New Delhi, 2 metro routes totally covered though the banners of India Gaming Carnival and all schools and colleges and different educational institutions covered. I think its good enough marketing strategy. And this excludes, my exploding radio campaign, TV commercials, Live media advertisements and many other mediums.

 

My friend also says, "Gaming is not an established form of entertainment or proven crowd puller in India. In this scenario I wonder how the organisers will come up with the declared amount." For the total prize money, i have already kept aside the total prize money and even revealed the Bank Guarantee of a much higher amount to all International Teams. Many of them, being convinced are coming to India for the very first time. I think its one big feat too.

 

My Friend also says, that we dont have experience in organizing the Games. Removing my experience from the equation, what will you have to say when i say i am about to give contracts for Game Management to the best companies in this business; Playfactory, Game Orbit & Game Ministry to name a few. I believe you surely cant question their experience.

 

For pulling sch an event, all i need is your support instead of criticizing me. We are doing the Biggest gaming Carnival of India. If you cant help me in any way, all i request you all is not to be pessimistic about me.

 

I am writing this post only to remove few baseless doubts arising in all your minds. This is my first and final post as organizing an event of such high scale hardly leaves me with any time. And my only request to you Mr. Vijay is to please stop sending all these mails to my core working teams including my ticketing partner Zomato. You are not helping me in any way Mr. Vijay but are only creating unwanted problems for me. If you cant support me, at least dont criticize me.

 

For any other query, every one can either visit us at our office in Noida (Delhi) or can call us for free at 1800 - 102 - 0106.

 

Thanks and Regards,

 

Kushagra

On Facebook , erodov the organisers say come visit our place whenever a question about finances/sponsors are asked ..

 

Why on earth will anyone visit their place (which shares the address of their sponsors too) :rofl:

 

Why doesn't anyone from Noida visit their VIP office

 

One of the organizers threatened to file a lawsuit against erodov for the thread that Vijay created ... Omg

Organiser:

We don't have prizes for any other position except top 2. So the re buy in is being compensated by offering you a cash prize of usd $ 20 for every round you win. I think that's a nice deal.

 

Random Dude

so everyone who wins one round i.e goes to next round gets 20 USD ? so ,if for say i go win 3 rounds i get 60 USD?

 

Organiser:

You are brilliant at math...

 

Random Dude

Man literally every competitive gaming forum is calling this a scam , none of the pros are travelling to india(heck people from my city dont wanna go) . It gives such a bad name to our country. I hope it doesn't turn out that way but it really doesn't look like it the way they are handling stuff.

 

The ads and stuff mean sh*t , there was a big tourney in Chennai in city center with ads and all that stuff(although nothing on TV). I entered MK and won sh*t , heck even the COD guys who were supposed to get like 5k each just got a mouse pad or something.

 

Looks like they copy-pasted the TOS from some English site :rofl:

 

LMFAO ... england :lol:
