A competitive spirit can be a great thing in the gaming industry and can drive people to become better at their craft. While this can be a great thing, it can also lead to a lot of issues. One of the biggest monsters created from competitiveness is collusion and that can put a bad taste in many players' mouths. There is nothing worse than being cheated out of top payout due to deals and not matches.
It is our goal to minimize collusion as much as possible in order to make a happy and fun environment for everyone while still keeping the competitive nature that drives games. To do this we will be using the following prize support in all tournaments when possible: Prizes will be awarded in product based on record, not standing using the following payout: 4-0= 5 packs, 3-0-1=4, 3-0=3, and 2-X=2.
This system won't work for every tournament, but it will be implemented whenever possible. This also means that tournaments will only be 4 rounds and there will be no need for tie breakers. Hopefully, you will all enjoy this system and we can continue to use it in the future.
