CLG will be having a prize pool of $ 10,000 but all future projects of the tournament series will depend on revenue generated through sponsorship and the viewers. All the revenue will be made public and all will be used for future events of the series so long as it continues.
CLG is also proud to announce the upcoming documentary. The documentary will be free for everyone who wishes to see it, but donations are welcome and will be used to recover the costs of producing the film.
