Paid tournament update.

For tournament announcements and updates.

  • So remember all the hype about a paid tournament system a few weeks back? I've sent follow up email to Ron and Noel with our ideas on the topic and a few monetization ideas. Here's an abridged version of what I said:

    Ron, you asked me how many people would pay to enter a tournament. I asked the people on the forums and some interesting data emerged. Keep in mind this is only players who regularly check the forums who vote, the real numbers would be much higher

    11 people said they would join for $0.99.
    6 said they would, but didn't have the money
    Only 2 people said they wouldn't join.
    Nobody said they would play for more than $0.99

    Here are our ideas.

    1) Make it a tab on the main menu. Similar to the "Online Play" and "Tactical Puzzles".

    2) Give medals to winner.

    3) Make it anonymous mode, but reveal identities at the end. Also, people would love it if this was implemented into normal anonymous mode.

    4) Make the tournaments monthly.

    5) Allow a way to get in free once. Give players a taste of the tournament for free, and they are more likely to pay.

    6) Even though this directly about the tournament, some people would like more to come with L2.

  • Most people actually said they wanted identified games.
