so the card/comic shop near my house has started free weekendly yu-gi-oh tournaments. the turnout has actually been quite amazing actually, allowing them to sell more packs and single cards at a faster rate, thus almost doubling their weekendly profits.
so that brings me to my point. since gran, for the most part, can be obtained freely by any player (pay, recycles, mirage master) a weekly or weekendly series of tournaments would be a great idea to promote a greater player base for Alteil US.
I personally did enjoy the themed tournaments that was held last year a few times and would like to see them play the majority role for these tournaments. The obvious themes would be a welcome, like: carbuncles, lvl3 wizard kingdom, mid refes, gowen rush, etc. i do want a couple basic rules because some of these files may be hard to deal with, no more than 2 copies of each unit and no more than one copy of each grim.
i hope with this schedule, or one like it, we would be able to hold 2-4 tournaments per day.
Friday - Sunday
10am-10pm -5 GMT
Entry Cost: 25gran
1st: 50point cards 500gran
2nd: 40point cards 250gran
3rd: 30point cards 100gran
4th - 10th: 10point cards 25gran
11th and lower: 5point cards
i personally think the point card prizes are pretty solid as is but with the possibility of the auction house being a reality. i think the gran rewards may need to be worked on a bit. i do think, however, that first through fourth should atleast gain a free entry to the next tournament of their choice.
