Help Party Astronauts bootcamp in EU
As I'm sure most of you know, our team, Party Astronauts, is still orgless going into EPL season 15. We've been dreaming of playing in this event for so many years, and now that we've finally reached it, we want to do everything in our power to be as competitive as possible. We want to show the world that North American Counter Strike still has what it takes and that there are still teams like ours willing to put in the work to be the best.
This is where the bootcamp comes into play. None of the players on our team (except for Jonji) have ever had the opportunity to play or practice in Europe, and we know that if we want to show the best version of ourselves at EPL, then we NEED to spend time learning from the teams in that region.
Unfortunately, being orgless means that we don't have anyone to support us financially, so the cost of a bootcamp would have to come out of our own pockets. Earlier in the year, we did a merch release hoping that we could use those profits to support the trip, but unfortunately, we only barely managed to break even.
We've received an incredible amount of support from fans last year, and now we're asking if you guys would be willing to help us again. We estimate a proper EU bootcamp to cost us between $15-20k for 6 people, so I've set the goal for this gofundme at $10k because even having part of it covered would relieve so much financial pressure from us. We would be so incredibly grateful for any and all donations from the CS community, and every single cent would go towards improving our team.
For anyone who chooses to donate, I beg you to please stay within your financial means. You do not need to donate to us to support us. Just knowing you're cheering us on is enough! And if by some miracle we manage to get signed by an organization willing to cover our bootcamp, I will be completely refunding all donations!
Thank you all so much <3
