I'm not saying this to benefit me, but I was thinking many tournaments have a smaller number of players playing at the moment, it's harder for anyone to get a golden ticket. If you have 300 active this might be ok, but with 30-50 active, it's harder for anyone but the top players to get tickets.

Maybe it would be reasonable to consider the golden ticket structure, in particular how many players are needed for the top or top 2 players to get golden tickets. Right now I think it's 5 for 1, and very few tournaments give golden tickets to even the top 2 except the fresh new tournaments which everyone plays.

Thoughts?

I'm open to ideas. I could easily change it so that every tournament gives golden tickets to the top X number of players... no minimum number of players required. I could also default each player with 5 golden tickets each week.

Let me know what you think and I'll make it happen.

Probably best to wait for a bunch of people to talk... I think reducing it to 3 would be a good balance, maybe 3/6/10 for top 1/2/3 then whatever you did after those. I think it's 5/10 for top 2 right now?

I feel a little guilty since I get lots of tickets, I even sometimes don't play because then someone else won't get one.

I like the idea of anonemouse to lower the requirements to something like 3/6/10 players joining for 1/2/3 tickets.

But no need to provide all players dozens of tickets, because
that would reduce motivation to play tournaments?

I always try to get much more than 10 tickets for a relaxed weekly winning attempt. Therefore i have to play a lot of tournaments.
If the top players are no longer motivated to play many games, btg would not benefit ...

Change the golden ticket structure carefully to increase the number of people playing normal tournaments AND the GeekOfTheWeekTourney.

yes a slight increase is ok imo too.
...so the first ticket appearing kicking in with lower participants count, lower the participants needed for every increase by a constant if that fits the formula

additionally add 1 per default /week to everybody who ended at least 1 tournament with more than a 0 score, might bring more action at the weekend

Ok, I made some chnages to the number of golden tickets that are awarded. Should mean more people will be able to get tickets even when there are not many players

I'd write a long post explaining it.... but I'm hope some pseudocode will be good enough.


if(numPlayers <= 1) Then
ticketsWon = 1
else if(numPlayers <= 3) Then
if(place = 1) Then
ticketsWon = 2
else if(place = 2) Then
ticketsWon = 1
else
ticketsWon = 0
End if End if
else if(numplayers <= 5) Then
if(place = 1) Then
ticketsWon = 3
else if(place = 2) Then
ticketsWon = 2
else if(place = 3) Then
ticketsWon = 1
else
ticketsWon = 0
End if End if End if
else if(numplayers <= 10) Then
if(place = 1) Then
ticketsWon = 4
else if(place = 2) Then
ticketsWon = 3
else if(place = 3) Then
ticketsWon = 2
else if(place = 4) Then
ticketsWon = 1
else
ticketsWon = 0
End if End if End if End if
else
if(place = 1) Then
ticketsWon = 5
else if(place = 2) Then
ticketsWon = 4
else if(place = 3) Then
ticketsWon = 3
else if(place = 4) Then
ticketsWon = 2
else if(place = 5) Then
ticketsWon = 1
else
ticketsWon = 0


So, as an example, if 4 people entered a tournament, the code above shows that the player that got first will win 3 golden tickets, second place will get 2, third place will get 1, and everyone else will get 0.

Hope that makes sense. If it turns out the changes I made are bad, let me know and we can tweak them :)

I think it will be good to give others more chances. For me it won't make any difference, I get more chances than I need anyways.

Loving and appreciating the additional golden tickets but, . . . no where to spend them. ;-)

It's all good. Let people build them up, then they have plenty of chances :P
