I was wondering why those were cheaper than the others on your eBay shop. If I had to guess, it's because of all the weird mismatched patterns in the stamp -- not TriLion's best work, I'm afraid.
I'm still committed to be cheaper, which means smaller player packs, lower payouts, but will be tweaking items to make it sustainable.
Some tournaments don't have a Player Pack because that can be a risky outlay for a non-store promoter like me. I have to order a minimum number of discs. However, if I don't get the players signed up, then I'm left with a bunch of tournament stamped discs that nobody wants (I Like SpIke). Pushing all entry to payouts makes sure I don't get stuck with inventory I can't sell.
I have a better suggestion. No more payouts for Ams. Sorry not sorry, I know it isn't a popular opinion but we are one of the few if not only Am sporting events with a payout.
One advantage of a rating-based tournament is that every player definitely has a place, particularly women. I've already lost count of the number of times I've seen a tournament that offers a broad spectrum of divisions for men to choose from, and women are lumped into fewer divisions, and some are not even offered. (As an example, the pro side of the GBO has many pro men's divisions, and ALL pro women are lumped into open.)
Division based are better. Ratings don't say much about how good of a player you are. Basic statistics will tell you that.
It's a fun change up, unique formats are welcome in my book!
All in all was about the same, except there was no players pack I assume?
