#8

how is the payout exactly determined?

how much of the entree fee goes INTO the pot?

or better question, what is the formula for determining pot size?


#9

Q & a

Good question(s)…Well 1st the $300 Cash pot is already set. So even if only 3 people should up, that would be the amount split. The add-in to the cash pot is based off of spectators pay, food & drinks purchased, sponsors investment, as well as free pay & tournament entry fee. So the plot can double or triple at any point…but never decrease. Its real technical but your looking at around 20 to 30% of total grossing from the event. Does that answer your question sir?


#10

Well not really. I think he wants to know the exact formula of what determines how the pot increases. People are always skeptical of new tournaments, especially those run from outside the usual community. Don’t take offense to it as if the tournament is run legit you will quickly gain a good reputation around Missouri and Illinois and have a great chance to be successful. Gauranteed cash pots are all the rage now so i would expect alot of support.


#11

Q & a

I feel you…I want people to support this. That’s why I’m doing guaranteed cash pot. OK, its like this…

Tournament Entry Fee is $7. $2 of that gets added to the pot.
Free Play is $5. $1 of that gets added to the pot.
Spectators fee is $3. $1 of that gets added to the pot.
Food & Drinks may vary but…$1 is guaranteed to the pot off of every non-concession purchase.
Plus whatever any participating sponsors add to the pot.

But all in all…more will be added. that’s just a more detailed rough break down. If a lot of people show…it will be more in based off a percentage.

I really appreciate the questions…that’s what I’m here for.

SET UP’S


#13

this sounds interesting.

a suggestion tho for finals…instead of 3/5 rounds, it should be 2/3 round and either 2/3 or 3/5 matches. the rounds should never change. changing it to 3/5 rounds is not normal practice when it comes to street fighter tournaments.


#14

q & a

Consider it done!..I don’t want to be going against the grain.

And I would like this to appease to the players in it. Especially since this is my 1st Tournament.

Thank you so much for the suggestion.

Anyone see the interview with marn. Interview with EG.Marn, C. Viper confirmed for MvC3? : News : EventHubs.com

Although I dont like marns personality I respect his skills with dudley and viper and hes one of the best players in the usa. In the interview he mentions that the MIDWEST competitive scene is weak and pretty much the only good player we have is FLOE.

As much as this pisses me off its sorta true our scene is weak compared to east and west coast. We need this event to increase the activity in the midwest and perhaps is this event does well it will attract stronger players.

Thank you YBMGamersFest for hosting this event. Im aiming to go pro level with my skills and im looking forward to seeing how far I can get.
