Hello Holotable heroes!

We are excited to announce our involvement with Extra Life 2022! This will be the 6th year members of the Capital Games team will help raise money for this extraordinary cause.

As you know, this event holds a very special place in the hearts of many people who work at CG. Last year we raised over $20,000 with a goal of $10K, and this year we are setting our sights high again with a goal of $20,000 for our local charity, UC Davis Children's Hospital, located in Sacramento, CA. With your help, we know this can be achieved and we can show how amazing our community is and what we can accomplish together! In the 5 years the team at Capital Games has been doing this, we have raised over $62,000 for children in need.
This year, we wanted to do something different! We have created some fundraising milestones, and for each milestone we hit, we will unlock an in-game reward:
$5,000
Monday: Capital Ship Events for 1-day
$10,000
Monday: Capital Ship Events for 1-day
Tuesday: Extra Galactic Challenges
$15,000
Monday: Capital Ship Events for 1-day
Tuesday: Extra Galactic Challenges
Wednesday: Free Pack
$20,000
Monday: Capital Ship Events for 1-day
Tuesday: Extra Galactic Challenges
Wednesday: Free Pack
Thursday: 2-day Additive Drops (TBD)
Thursday: Extra Inbox gift

We appreciate all your support of this event and look forward to seeing you in chat during the stream!

    There will be no donation matching as this event is being run by individuals from the Capital Games team.
  • Donated 👍🏻 Always happy to help out my alma mater!
  • So I have never done this before. I click the link and hit donate it ask for a team member. Does each team member at Capitol games have their own goals that we choose to help with but all funds add to the ultimate goal of 20k?

    if the goal is reached: will the extra GC reward at least be easy challenges that doesn't require inquisitors, or have super RNG because the enemy is fast and hits like a truck?

    i mean since its a bonus reward it should be a gimmi for most players

    That'd be funny if they were to run inquisitor ones.

    Do you know if Capital Games as a studio supports other charities with donations?
  • With the money we pour into this game I feel it would be pretty easy to match 20k I'd rather you did that then give us a free pack and an extra event

    Yes, that is correct.

    For example, if you go to the roster page and see someone named "Meathead" they'd be a prime candidate for donation towards their goal.

    The overall team goal is 20K

    Thank you I donated. I really like how you guys do this.

    That's awesome! Thank you!

    We're closing in on the 10K Mark

    I started my campaign a few days ago and you awesome folks have got myself up to $500, which is awesome.

    And not that it's a competition or anything, but hotdang, Crumb is killing it right now with donations! haha
  • How much did or will the company donate? Begging you players for a donation and don't give a hint how much you spend. There are better companies i will give my money. This call is only hypocritical.

    That is because the company has nothing to do with it, it is organized by a part of the team. And they are probably donating too. And you dont give the money to the company, you give it to the hospital.

    So while their call is not hypocritical, your move not to donate because you dont like the organisation (that is not even doing the event in the first place) putting in updates you dislike seems pretty stupid to me.

    Why dont you ask McDonalds next how much they are contributing?
