Got a few suggestions for the staff, not sure if posting here or via contact form / email is the best way to suggest them ...
1: More even distribution of Daily Tournament prizes. Currently, 43.5% of the prize pool is split amongst the top 50 players, with the rest split evenly between the rest of the players. With 3000 players in a tournament, if you're in the top 50% (and get the credit), there's no point trying bothering to unless you can gain 1450 places to reach the top 50. How about a sliding scale? Of the remaining N players, give the player ranked at R, 2(N-R)/(N*(N-1)) of the pot. That way player 51 gets twice what they would have under the old system, whereas player 3000 gets nothing (number 1500-ish gets the same as they would have).
2: If you are in a tournament room during a tournament, rather than having to challenge and accept, could the server match players up automatically (perhaps with a weighting based on average response time)? This would reduce many problems people have with rejected challenges, time-outs, and getting repeated "this player has already accepted a challenge"-type messages.
