Games, glory and community! The Tournament of Ages is an annual Warcraft roleplay event on the Moon Guard-US server that hosts a week of fun events; community activities, and a charity fundraiser.
What is the Tournament of Ages?
Every year, the Tournament of Ages brings the champions of Azeroth together at the Argent Tournament Grounds of Icecrown in the spirit of competition during a week's worth of games, festivities, and competitions. Fabulous prizes await those who prove themselves the very best in tests of strength, will, and prowess, while artisans from around the world show off their creations at established booths. All are welcome at the tournament grounds, where revelry, riches, and glory await!Dates
: August 7th 2022 - August 13th 2022Hours
: 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm Central Time Location
: Argent Tournament Grounds, Icecrown
Players often gather and enjoy themselves outside of these hours. Some booths open or close early as well. But organized events are scheduled within the 7 pm-11 pm window.
We used to switch charities every year, but last year with the pandemic we decided to work together with a charity called Blessings in a Backpack
. They provide ready to eat meals for children in Elementary School in 46 states and growing, all for the cost of around $5.
This group has been very clear about their efforts and needs, has gone above and beyond with releasing information, and has had a 4 star rating on charity navigator
for many years.
Additionally, ToA has both Stationary and Wandering Booths
The Stationary booths actually utilize the stalls and tents featured around the Tournament Grounds. Guilds and individuals set up shop to host various different experiences. These feature everything from live art drawing, to walk up roleplay experiences, or even creating special in game quests using addon tools like TRP3extended.
The booths are fully run by players who each come up with a unique "Business plan and/or menu" and then spend the entire week interacting with the community and players to provide a special experience.
One artist Irishmoo
, draws live portraits every year for free, and asks that people only donate if they can. Last year she drew 91 portraits in 7 days. She'll be drawing live on twitch
Our Website lists the event's schedules each day under each event or on their menu, but here's the full schedule that shows other fun small events and when they happen such as Marmotball, Sword in the Skull, and so on! We will also announce small daily schedules each day!
Tournament of Ages Schedule
Here is last year's Tiltify and this years. As you can see in the donation notes from people, such as from our Top Donor, Khudaal, they list things like Art Auction purchases. We don't handle any art auction proceeds ourselves.
- 2022 Tiltify. Our incentives will be live during the event, but we will offer things such as custom Emojis, Coloring pages by Mischi and things from our Stream teams!
- 2021 Tiltify We raised $18,181.19 last year! You can see how people could get tickets/etc from last year. Our starting tickets of $5 is about the cost to provide a child with food for the weekend.
We do a yearly Charity Art Auction which benefits Blessings in a Backpack
who we also raise money for on Tiltify.
Tournament of Ages 2022 Art Auction
As mentioned above in the Tiltify section, we don't handle any of the funds received for the art auction. People bid and then donate directly to Tiltify who gives the money directly to Blessings in a Backpack.
