Besides the general backlash we've seen on this thread, there's also the problem with weekly tournaments. Tournaments are special because they are once in a blue moon events; making them as common as casual play is probably doomed to fail. Honestly, I think that's why Concord's ISL didn't do so well.

Then there's the monetary aspect. We're a relatively poor community (have you seen how laggy some dedicated servers are?). Asking for $10 a month substantially surpasses comparable forms of entertainment, as several people have pointed out. It's more expensive than PS+, XBL, Netflix/Hulu and the overall gain is substantially less than these services, where you get things like several free games per month, and unlimited movies/shows streaming. Acknowledging this, the next logical step would be to reduce the price by quite a bit. $10 a year sounds a thousand times more reasonable but even with that, the entire notion is still suspect. However, with the general cost of just under a dollar per month, people are less likely to use the paypal loophole that someone already pointed out. I mean seriously, who has the patience to dispute 80 cents with a company that doesn't even have a US contact number? $10 however, is a whole different story.

I've told you about this before Orion, but a lot of children play this game. Children are generally not self-sustaining, and there'd be no way for them to fork over that much money to play a game that they probably play in secrecy, without the knowledge/approval of their parents.

I'm not saying you shouldn't go ahead and host this tournament/league or whatever, but you'd have to accept that right off the bat, every player still dependent on their parents (which should be over the 70% mark), would be unable to participate in this tournament. It's a good plan but hehe, ya...lyl Orion.

I don't think I ever advocated the $1 entry that 2020 mentioned with the Cup (million player Ladle, etc). Maybe I did, but I don't think so
my bad then

I leave my tournaments for you guys to host and it only takes you 2 weeks to try to make it pay to play? Do I really have to come back just to host proper sumo tournaments?


I left you guys everything you needed to make your own tournaments and this what you come up with?

lol It's just one person, and from what I've seen, nobody is hopping aboard. There is a free sumo tournament being hosted on the 30th, by Cookie. Check out TTT. Although, feel free to come back and host more. :P

It's Liz.

-.- acting like you don't know.I have screenshots of you proclaiming your forbidden love for her.

*snaps fingers*

No but really, back on topic. Orion, maybe you should put up a poll to see just where people stand on this. I think it's pretty obvious, but maybe statistical data will prove otherwise? Something along the lines of what Durka did on the AFL thread?

LOL

PS: Im not coming back, I just thought it was funny how orion is trying to charge a bunch of tron players 10$ a month.

NOW on the other hand, if he was hosting a tournament where there was an entry fee and the entire money pot goes to the winner or if SBT goes to the top 4 in the finals, then I would understand that, but hes just trying to steal yo monies.


My final looks on this: Orion is trying to get money to support his baby.
