    Well i do give them props for matching the funds because it is TOO easy to just use the money gamer's forked over and take all the credit,so in this case ,they did a good job.

    Did you just say "yawn" to raising money for charity? For children's hospitals?

    Am I allowed to call this person an asshole? I mean, they're the quentessential asshole running around the internet, thinking their opinion matters, that they must spew their vile hatred of the world throughout in order to....hell, I don't know. All I know is that...it's rude. Downright rude.

    Well, just my 2 cent, "yawn" can be directly toward this article or the event it self or other things. We don't know what that "yawn" for, maybe its all for post count >_>', who knows.

    On a side note; the Charity is all good and everything, but if they don't carry that money to the place itself, its hard press to know where it really went to. I see COMPANIES does this crap all the time. Does the money ever shows up is the question. I honestly don't believe what "the company donate to" unless, of course, they bring it there in person.

    Personally, I get the feeling most Charity Org. are a scam, but, what do I know. Lets hope it get where its need it.

    it was for the 2 new lousy pvp maps and certainly NOT for the children. I also dont support such charitys for one reason: The guys behind the scenes have a hefty loan- they dont work for free and not for children. Even if those 65k were just for the hospital kids- somone at the hospital will take some of that cash. You can bet your ass on that.

    Yes..Obviously someone at the hospital will take that money as they preform helpful and needed tasks for these children.. it's called a paycheck.

    I am now wondering how you have been able to survive this long without figuring out people want to get paid for their work, even if it is a "good cause"
