    I might not join the matches myself, but I think idea's like this going to a good cause is always something we should support.
    That's what good community do, something for the people that needs our help.

    This really needed more exposure. I've been playing for well over 2 years, every day, I run a guild.. I had not heard of this until today, and only am now because I was searching around for info on the charity event listed under today's maintenance reasons. I asked others and they had not heard of this either.

    It doesn't seem to have been promoted on the main site or in-game. If you are putting annoying pop-ups for pearl deals in the corner, you could also use that space to promote charity.

    Hate to throw criticism at charity, because of all the things you could do events for, this is great to see, genuinely, but I think we can all agree that saying the entire BDO community raised $800.. well that's just depressing.

    Hopefully next time, we get the information at least a few days before hand and maybe even some guilds/players would take part in this and help.
    Not sure how much you can and can't do tho.
