So, it seems anymore that there isn't a whole lot of people in the DTs anymore.
I can't remember the exact information, but it seems that there has been a lot of inflation in the UR market, especially since there are so many different characters now. I remember when the Big 5 Cr use to be ~5.000.000 clintz and now they are ~15.000.000 clintz. I think the top prize I've ever gotten from a DT win was around 75,000 clintz. But if I remember correctly, back before this inflation, top prize could net you around 30,000-40,000 clintz. If you look at the price of characters in relation to prizes from the DT, characters (particularly Big 5), have gone up 300% versus winnings going up 190% to 250%. I think part of the better way to offset this would be to increase the pooling of players in the DT.
I don't know if it is possible, but I remember a time where I could play in ELO and the points would count towards T1. I can't remember if Survivor went to T2, but I could be wrong. Would it be possible to bring this concept back to help us get some better prizes? Or are there some better ideas to get people excited about participating in DTs? I remember they use to be impossible and a couple thousand players would play. But anymore, I can never seem to find one where there's more than 200 players participating. Is it just me? Or does this seem to make it less fun?
Some fun and creative ways to improve DT turnout would be super swell.
Honestly, I don't know what you are talking about here. I'm not sure if there was a time when the Big 5 were worth 5M, and if there was, it was around 6 years ago. But in '12 you would win around 5K for winning a DT. And for winning a DT right now you are winning at least 35K, 7 times more.
Also, I started playing this game again in late '13, and since then there hasn't been such thing as points in ELO and Survivor counting for DT.
He's right. I used to play elo during dt because you got elo points AND dt poonts. I don't think they shoukd ever bring that back, though. It doesn't really make any sense. As far as getting more players in dt, there really isn'tca solution. There just aren't that many people playing anymore. That's the sad truth.
Clintz are so completely devalued right now that it's ridiculous. Yes, cards cost a lot more now but that's because clintz are inflated. The longer the game goes, the more inflated clintz get.simple economics. Clintz keep getting pumped into the economy via prizes, dt winnings, etc. But there'sno way to ever remove those from thececonomy. So clintz get more and more inflated and pricesbof cards go up and up...
Yes you got DT points for Elo games. And the Big 5 used to cost 5.000.000 to 7.000.000 clintz some years ago.
I remember Tournaments with 5000 players. U did not get more than about 6K clintz for a tournament win. Nowadays it´s much more attractive to play in tournaments as u win cryptocoinz.
The clintz rewards should be replaced with pools of cards. For example:
150 - 101 get a random card between 10k to 20k
100 - 76 get a random card between 20k to 30k
75 - 50 get a random card between 30k to 40k
.. and so on
Less Clintz -> Less Inflation
More Cards Supplied -> Less Inflation
