Official tournaments

There is one thing I have been wondering about. Will official tournaments always be just for premium players? I mean it is kind of unfair that every single tournament is for premium players. Not everyone can afford to buy a rank, and some people are not allowed to.

Thats why I think there should be official tournaments that everyone can join every now and then (Not always maybe 3-5 times each year). Another good reason is that then we eill have more players in the tournaments and also non-premium players can have a chance to win something. There is aldo some good non-premium players that deserve a chance!

I agree. Non-premium players should be allowed to play in all official tournaments. That would make each tournament more competitive. But I don't think that's up to moderators.

Official tournaments belong to the advertised content when you buy premium. Also I think the tournaments are one of the mainreasons why people buy premium. If everybody is allowed to join, less people buy premium and more players will join with second accounts. If you want to play at tournaments you can participate at unofficial tournaments or create them yourself.

I defintely agree, and I've have bought premium for many people in this game. It's sad because not everyone can afford it.

Yeah, we started with making the premium games free to join, now let’s make the tournaments free to join and take all reasons to buy premium. Game won‘t give enough income anymore to pay the servers and they will take it offline.

I‘m just saying „GJ, go for it!“, but don‘t cry later.

Thats why there could be a rule for example that your account needs to be at least 2 months old (just an example) or maybe lets say an account need a spesific amount of plays before being able to join a toruny. That would prevent new accounts.

Let’s make it simple: You want to get more rights for non-premiums, which means the premium players have less advantages = less people buy premium. Even if there are just 2-3 tours a year that are free to join, it will cause that a lot of players who want to play tours won’t buy premium anymore and just focus on those open tournaments. This also means less players will play the premium-only tours, which means the tours will be even less interesting for the players = more people will stop buying premium .......

Back to your comment, all those exceptions will just move the problem but it won’t be eliminated. The old players(who create the most 2nd accounts for tours) have enough old 2nds and the age won’t be a problem. It’s not hard to get a specific amount of games, but using the amount of games has another problem: you can’t check it. The amount of games is just visible at the ingame stats and no tournamentmod has the time or motivation to check all accounts ingame(+wait that they come online). And if you want to disqualify everybody who has not enough games, just prepare for a lot of trol-sign ups to flaw the schedule.

Just enjoy the game as long as it is still available and don’t create new problems.

I don’t disagree with everything(got 1k+ forum comments, you will find more than enough examples where I support ideas, if you search for it), I just share my opinion. I‘ve read your post and got the opinion that it is a great example of a horrible idea(excluding the case you want to boost the death of cf2)

No one would know WHEN the tournament for everyone is and no one would know WHAT kind of tournament it is. Therefore most likely people that can buy premium will still buy it. Or even if people will stop buying premium (which I doubt) the mods could just stop hosting tournaments for everyone? There is no good reasons on why NOT to try this idea, so in my opinion it is worth a shot just to see how it goes.

Thanks for giving your opinion though Smile Also, I agree with everything you said Unholy’

There are countless flaws if tournaments were open to non-premiums. I can totally see players changing their ips and signing up with multiple accounts and then just play with the one which got into the easiest first rounds. Or to just sabotage the tournament itself.
Even though having a single open tournament also could have good sides in promoting premium and showing curvers the more srs competitive side of cf2 I still have to fully agree with NOWO.

Non-premiums can join unofficial tournaments and there were times when jaan and others hosted an unofficial tournament almost every day. If you want to give them the „chance“ just create your own tour.

To 1.: Being able to join official tournaments is one of the mainreasons why people buy premium. Just check how many new 2nds with premium join the official tournaments.

To 2.: Sure they will focus on those tournaments. It’s just about the prices. You have the chance to receive a champtitle and win new premium/coins. Back the days when Gilnash was hosting unofficial tournaments with good prizes over a hundred of players joined them(and now check unofficial tours without prices). So if you have the chance to get the same stuff without paying premium you will choose this way instead of paying money.

It’s not about the fact who wins, it‘s about the way. A lot of people would be pissed off when they join a room for 8 players but just 3 are there. Or would you like to waste 1,5h until you are able to kick some people out(or you don‘t advance automatically even with last place at the round)?

By ''chance,'' I meant giving non-premium users a chance to win an official tournament and become a champion without having to buy premium. 

Nowadays nobody has the time to create unofficial tournaments and almost nobody plays them when made.

I agree with you though that 2nd accounters, might buy premium to participate in a tournament, but then again it's just for the sake of being anonymous. That's why an all anonymous tournament would be nice.

BTW, next time when you want to reply, you should address all the points stated previously, and not just some.
