The unnamed millionaire announced a search for a contractor to organize a real match in the royal battle video game genre. The event will take place on a private island. He plans to select 100 people who will compete for £ 100 thousand.
The millionaire posted the corresponding ad on HushHush.com, which is positioned as “Amazon for the rich”. The record states that the customer wants to redeem a private island, as well as attract one of the game developers to organize the match. For six weeks of work, which includes the arrangement of the island and the match, the millionaire offers £ 45 thousand. Applications from interested organizers are accepted until April 22. The winner of the tender will be announced on May 10.
Players will not use real weapons. The match will take place with equipment from airsoft. Participants will receive sensory vests that will allow the organizers to track hits on them. As conceived by the millionaire, the match should last three days. Participants will move around the island and will also be permitted to relax on hikes. They will provide food and equipment for camping. Medical personnel will also be present on the island in case of emergency.
