Couple questions from a new Tourney player

Thursday 06/12/2012, 15:29

Firstly, do the top 150 overall players of the day get a chance at a collector or do the top 150 of each tournament collectively get a shot? The rules don't really specify. It just says the top 150 of the day which could mean either one.

Secondly, do you personally prefer Standard or Extended? Why?

Top 150 per tournament go into the end of day prize draw but you can only be entered once in the Standard and once in the extended ones so if you get into the top 150 again you chances don't increase.

I prefer Standard it's just more fun and a little easier too. :-d

If You enter twice or more your chances increase (but others also - just lower number of rivals for Cr)

Krasky pay attention, Dt lotteries don't work that way. You place 150 or above in any of the Daily tournies that day you get put into lottery for that day only ONCE. not on how many top places you can get.

I think what kraksy means is. if you entered twice in top 150 the your chance is increased but very small and that increase other chance to, even player who entered top 150 once. so no matter how many you got to top 150, your chance is still the same with someone who entered top 150 once.

let's just say:
kraksy and mafioso has entered top 150 once, and zach never entered before. after the 11th DT there are total of 1650 players who entered the lotteries for getting in the top 150. so kraksy's and mafioso's chance is 5/1650.

in the 12th DT, there are another 150 new players(outside of 1650 above) that entered top 150. and lets just say kraksy at 151th, mafioso didn't played, and zach at 150th. if the rank is stay the same until DT ends, their chance is 5/1800. kraksy got his 150th and zach down to the 151th, then kraksy's chance is super slightly increase from 5/1800(0.0027778) to 5/1799 (0.0027793) and so mafioso too even he just entered the top 150 once. but zach of course didn't have any chance.

to put it more simple,
there are 50 players who determined to get the cr's and played 12 DT and got all 12 DT into top 150, so if other players entered top 150 once each player then there are 1250(100*12+50) total players in the lotteries. chance is 5/1250 (0.004)

but if there are 100 got all day top 150 in each DT and other players just once each, then total players who entered the lotteries is 700(50*12+100) players. it's 5/700 (0.007143) chance.

Well looks like you have been told already how the lotto works (1 top 150 a day counts multiple do not increase chances)

as for standard vs extended, standard is easier to get top 150 by a large margin

Ok again, changes increase because if I enter multiple times (top150) there are less players for the same amount of prizes, so I and all other have bigger chance to win Cr.

the chances depends on the total players that entered top 150 a day, but all the players have equal chances.
the lesser the total players the bigger the chances is. when someone entered twice, it's N(total)-1, 5 times then N-4.

ya, instead of saying "your chances does not increase" let's just say "you not only increase your chance but you increase other players (top 150) as well)
