i55 is the International TF2 LAN event of the year. 2 US teams go to Europe to compete against the Euro teams. This is the 4th year American teams are going over and hopefully I will be able to make it again.
This Patron was created to help me save up for events like these but unfortunately it's not successful enough yet to cover an international plane ticket and i55 is happening at a busy time in my life. I am moving next month and Security Deposits, Moving fees and application fees...are expensive...like i never knew how much it costs just to move into a new place jesus christ its a ton of fees
So long story short, I'm going to have to make a donation drive and I really didn't want to. I don't want to make another video about it and put it on youtube so instead I am going to include a link at the end of my newer videos explaining the situation and all that. I don't like that I have to resort to a donation drive again and its pretty frustrating but its the only option I really have at this point.
I'm planning on offering shirts as a thank you to donators but im still working through the costs of printing some out. If you guys have any inputs or suggestions on the situation feel free to comment here. Like I said, I don't want to just make a video about it like last year, it feels too crass.
Thanks for the support
