Hey Toon. Since nobody gave you feedback yet, I'll try to give you some pointers:

  • Try to keep away from posting stuff in downloadable documents. A guy tried it a while back and it never worked out. It keeps people away from downloading if they're not logged in and some will not even bother to do so.
  • The concept of what you want to do is cool, but note that you're trying to have a long term, high dedication tournament in a game with an almost dead tournament/competitive scene.
  • You're directly competing with Drew's tournaments, that are more varied, more frequent and don't require the same amount of time and dedication (and even those don't get that many players). They also have better prizes, as he's working with the staff.

So, to sum it up, the concept is interesting, but IMHO you're expecting too much time/dedication for a tournament in a semi-dead game; directly competing with more frequent and rewarding tournaments while not bringing new stuff to the table.
If you still intend to go with it, consider reducing the timespan of the whole thing or try working with Drew/Staff to get more stuff to the table.
Hope the feedback was helpful!

I'm confident that the health of this game is going to be better, it's some kind of bet. I hope that such event may attract a considerable amount of players.

I aleady sent a word to the staff and to Drew to work with them, i don't wish to compete with his events :)
