@alexwallish I think the cool part about your idea is to take a game that we mutually enjoy, and to get to know one another in a familiar space while still being #pitchy... I do not really think that you intend to pivot to testing a thesis where fortnite victory royale = best company? Also I think it's better to poll active users, though still good to hear from the masses ...

@michaelbarnes I definitely agree. As far as a tournament, I wasn't thinking that founders would be competing base on Fortnite ability, but rather based on their pitch. Fortnite is just the backdrop. I was thinking basically just live streaming the founders taking turns playing with a VC or two and then having the VC's decide who to advance, play another game with, and then select a winner at the end, based on who they want to invest in, not who was actually the best player. Somebody else actually suggested this and I think it might have some merits. Just a thought though. I'm still exploring where to take this.
