I think there would be more attraction for some players who are playing a lot of the freerolls to have a satellite ticket freeroll that had a variety of tickets as opposed to just more tickets for higher places.
I am thinking of a payout like this:
150,000 satellite freeroll
1st Place 50,000 ticket
2nd Place 25,000 ticket
3rd Place 20,000 ticket
4th Place 20,000 ticket
5th Place 10,000 ticket
6th Place 10,000 ticket
7th Place 5,000 ticket
8th Place 5,000 ticket
9th Place 2,500 ticket
10thPlace 2,500 ticket
I think this would give a newer player an opportunity, if he did well in one of these, to move up and experience playing in a littler higher entry tourney for free as they work on improving their game.
Neat idea. I do have a question, though. The 10K, 20K & 25K tickets do not exist currently. Is the idea to create new tickets for these values OR to reach these values with smaller existing tickets? (e.g. for 20K prize: (1) 15K & (1) 5K… which would be very useful for Regional Leagues.)
I could see a 20K ticket being useful for the Gemstone League at that level, but the 10K & 25K values less so.
Expanding on my thoughts a bit, what if we were to create a new 20K and 7.5K ticket? These values would get players involved in Gemstone Leagues which run regularly. It might even get them interested in the leaderboards for said leagues.
An example of a payout, maybe not as smooth as @SSeville’s, but out a few places more.
Thanks, @SSeville, and everyone for a thoughtful suggestion and discussion. We have a lot of ideas we’ve been talking out about improving tickets on the whole. No details at the moment as things are still being worked out, but wanted to let you know that it’s on our radar.
