5500 is very little compared to the 17K the winner used to get in tournys...i used to play in like 3 tournys and notch up 40K or so....and then not have to play for a while...now 5500 is nothing compared...
What 0ET-Shadow is saying is true before some guys can earn 10k-18k easily just by winning a single daily tournament but for this change I do not object for it was a very democratic change. We have an election on how the prizes will be distributed during daily tournament and this change benefits new players.
I have never seen any election as 0ET-Jade referring to here, so i can not agree to it was a very democratic change. So, still a joke how they changed it. Using the point as Newbies also need a bit of the prize is completely ridiculous as just by entering the tournament they would get an prize anyway. It may benefit the new and the weak, but should they also not take the hardcore players into consideration???
If what you mean was that the current format is a joke and not what Shadow said that we were able to earn 18k per tourney then I agree with you Geir. The current format of daily tournament or the whole game itself is geared towards New Players.
