Most AM sports do not pay people at all to play.
I get that, but I was just wondering why the payouts are less the higher the tier.
Out of the 15 tourneys I played this year, the best payouts were the unsanctioned (which makes sense)..The next best were the c-tier...and the B tiers have been ok... but less...
and the one A-tier was the worst.
If all the payouts were the same (whatever they may be... large or small) I'd understand...but there isn't any consistency, and I wonder why that is...
Gerrits tourney I got 3rd and a $100 payout... C-tier...$30 entry (I think)
The Vettiner Open...2nd place...maybe a $30 payout... A-tier $40 entry
Both tourneys the division was full (36 players)
Now this could be an anomaly but...most everyone I've asked...seems to notice the same thing.
