I feel the barrier to entry ( Gold 3+ ) was possibly difficult to achieve, at least to welcome people into the tournament.
I know some may roll their eyes at the idea of bronze teams joining in, but honestly it's the only community we got, and everyone who wants to compete in a tournament definitely should be allowed !
In addition, I think awarding teams a PSR / MMR boost would be cool, especially to teams who make it far along. Why shouldn't tournaments affect the rating system of players? If anything it should give a higher rating than playing on a random day with rand
