bump of justice, still enough time for some amateur teams to get some experience
Considering those tournaments will be hosted frequently - at least once per week and provide opportunities for both scrimming and getting some coins, as well as getting shoutcasted live, i don`t really see why the negativity from the community side.
Coins is just a really poor prize that's all. Even (comparatively) small cash prizes would draw in much more competition. I could be wrong on this, but it's hard to bring your A-Game to something when you don't even care if you win or lose, and 'pride factor' isn't really much of a goal when you're talking about no-name teams. It just doesn't really seem to appeal to anybody.

The fact that a few community members from a random clan want to organize a competition and manage to get some prizes should be a bit more appreciated. Not everyone can afford to give people real money on a weakly base, but at least we can do is ask S2 to give us virtual money (aka Goblin Coins, more commonly known as Gold coins) that is purchased by real money. So instead of giving you the real money we are giving you a coupon for goods in a certain store (in this case Goblin Store). Instead of whining about the prize pool please enroll in this tournament and win it. Some people cannot afford to buy stuff in this store for some reason or cant make a purchase of those coins for other reasons and this is the way they can win it.Coins is just a really poor prize that's all.

About no-name teams. Almost every team starts as a random pub/no-name. In order to rise they need a competitive scene. This cup is the 1st cup we are organizing. Maybe it will encourage no-name teams to became a renowned teams later on and pride comes with that.
For all that think this is a waste of time think again. Isnt this the easy way to rise your average scrimming (with nothing to gain except win/loss or some skill) to a higher level where you are given a motive to play a bit more serious so u could maybe win a (at this point) symbolic prize worth some gold?
I think most people don't realize that competing is great fun. I don't expect to earn anything from playing HoN, because I'm not that good. If there is a tournament with cash prizes, like the Kingston HoNoR Tournament or the fnatic RaidCall tournament, all the top teams will sign up, so my team wont win any money. Still, we sign up and compete, because it's a way to get better and have fun. If there is a tourney with smaller prize pots, like gold coins, I'll have a better shot at winning, because the top teams wont sign up. That means I'll have a good shot at actually winning something, so why wouldn't I sign up? :--)
Tl:dr: Compete to get better and have fun, not for the prizes.
Damn that's like 1.5 alt avatars per player for first prize!!!
I realize it's about the spirit but S2 should be willing to pony up more than 1.5 ****ing avatar's worth of gold.
suprise, without participating in this tournament you`ll be able to buy ZERO avatars
also, as everyone knows, this is all about the money, who cares about spending an evening playing new potential scrim buddies and just having fun with it
