Thread: A Problem With Tournaments

There's a problem that I'm noticing, especially with the SSWO tournaments. There aren't ever enough people to start the trad tournament, especially now with the new VWO. Not a problem with VWO, but I think that the start number of the style tournaments needs to be lowered to 4... or lower the style tournaments according to the number of players in each style. The traditionalist style is very dry in players. I just thought that this needed to be addressed.

no. Lowering the number of people to 4 is rediculous. That would allow you to win a tourney in just 2 matches - if you can even call it tourney. It would also disrupt the economy greatly, as 4 people entering pay 2000$ in total and the prize money would be 5000$. Combined with the fact that youd have 2 tourneys a week because they are so short, this would totally cause a massive inflation in money. There are enough other tourneys for you to join as it is

Have you tried getting into the SSWO trad tourney lately Scorp? Back when SSWO was two leagues, it sometimes took over 2 months for a tournament to start. With many trads getting promoted into VWO, there simply aren't enough trads to start tournies.

Exactly as Gruchul said... Maybe there is a better compromise here, but as it is... The trad tourney is a joke. Yeah there are plenty of other tournaments, but why have worthless tournaments? I see your point too though Scorpion.

which is exactly why I said that the style tournies should have went up to VWO, with SSWO being able to join, but of course, nobody wanted to lsiten to that...

Well if you do lower the cap of people it would need to come with a lower ratio. For example amount of money put in to money earned and so on. I mean if you won a world title it would mean more than a style title so if the thing is 4 people to start a tourney then you could make it instead of multiplying entry cost by 10 for prize money multiply it by 4.

Or maybe having a time limit on tourneys before they start automatically?

That might be a good idea Legend Killer.

I agree with this. SSWO trad will never start at this rate. And I would like to add, that if it starts with less than the required number, then the payout be prorated. This should be for all tourneys that start after reaching the time limit.
