QuoteNot to be a wet blanket, but requiring hosts to accept Redemption Cash for tournament fees is not a viable idea. You may as well say they have to allow the players to attend free in terms of having the hosts cover the costs of hosting.Jaybee... just stop. Start thinking please.

How can you say you may as well allow players to attend free?
Everyone so far has agreed that something needs to be done, yet you keep bringing up points that are not too relevant to the topic. Yes they somewhat touch on the topic, but it is not really anything constructive. All of us agree something needs to be done, so bring up points that help us all think of a possible solution to the problem, or simply don't post anything.
Who said anything about people staying home because their entry fee is not covered? Only you brought that farfetched idea up.
There seems to be an ongoing effort to make it seem like this effort is costing the tournament host nothing or next to nothing... why?
What does that accomplish?
If hosts took in so little revenue from tournament fees, how would they cover their costs at all?
And if it's such a small setback for the hosts, it's considerably less of a setback for the regional winners. What, a guy's gonna spend potential hundreds of dollars trucking across the country in his car or on a bus or in a plane, but if you can't cover his supposed "five bucks" he's just going to stay home? How does that make sense?
and you guys want to argue with someone instead of trying to come up with maybe a cool idea for someone winning a regional tournament.
why not just the open two player catagories
and like tyler said maybe just half would show up
its always fun to come up with new ways to freshen up the game and create new and exciting incentives especially for us players who have seen and been apart of the game for so long.
It's not an effort to make it seem next to nothing, it's slimming down the categories, which would then make it easier to do on the host.
I think it's perfectly legitimate to ask why only some winners should get whatever this incentive is, and not others.
This is the part I don't understand. I was told this was to be an incentive to get them to show up. Then when I said that it might not be much of a draw for them, I'm criticized for "making up" the idea that it would not convince them to show. And now I'm told again that it's supposed to incentivize them. I think you can appreciate why I'm having a hard time following this line of thought
The other categories are all great and all, but if you are talking about how much money the host is losing, lets only make it to open 2 player categories, since those are the top ones.
It's not an incentive. I never said it was. I said it was a nice "invitation", or reward, and that something more needs to be done for the regional winners.
I just think we were trying to help your points out more, by saying only the two players, and when we were trying to come up with solutions for trimming down the hosts cost, you said another point that hurts my solution. Just can't win for losing.
Now do you have a good solution to what we could do, or should we all agree nothing will get done and leave it at that?
i dont understand why people get the idea that a free entry (no matter how small) to nationals because they win a regionals event is somehow owed to them?
no such thing as a free lunch in america.
