Yep, another one from me... (
I don't know if Procyon would consider it, but I would like to see a return of the "JMH-era" Lifetime Advantage for ALL FOUR semi-finalists. I believe the possibility of that particular prize generated a lot more interest in the tournament. To cut down on headaches, Proc could easily state up front that the prize is non-transferable and/or allow a cash substitute for winners who already have Lifetime.
On a related tangent, if Procyon wants to avoid the possibility of having to deal with people trying to "transfer" their Lifetime Advantage memberships later on (ala Chopper), a "non-transferable" clause could easily be added to the PSC FAQ.
Back on topic, if a change in H2H Prizes might be considered, then I would like to see something like this on the survey:
The current prize structure is
* Lifetime PSC Membership
* $100 via PayPal
* 2nd Place:
* $50 via PayPal
* 3 Months PSC Advantage for all round 3 winners.
(A) Keep the SAME.
(B) Round 3 winners: 3 Months PSC Advantage (same as before)
3rd & 4th Place: Lifetime Advantage (NON-transferable)
2nd Place: Lifetime Advantage (NON-transferable) + $50 via PayPal
1st Place: Lifetime Advantage (Immediately transferable to PSCer of choice at time of prize delivery) + $100 via PayPal (I would add the "fine print" of: MAY NOT BE "SOLD," "AUCTIONED," "TRADED," OR RE-OFFERED AS A PRIZE IN A NEW CONTEST WITHOUT EXPRESS PERMISSION FROM THE ADMIN)
(C) Round 3 winners: NOTHING but bragging rights for getting that far
4th Place: Lifetime Advantage (NON-transferable) OR $50 via PayPal (in lieu of Lifetime)
3rd Place: Lifetime Advantage (NON-transferable) OR $50 via PayPal (in lieu of Lifetime)
2nd Place: Lifetime Advantage (NON-transferable) + $50 OR $100 (total) via PayPal (in lieu of Lifetime)
1st Place: Lifetime Advantage (Immediately transferable to PSCer of choice at time of prize delivery) + $100 via PayPal OR $150 (total) via PayPal (in lieu of Lifetime) (+ same "fine print" as above)
(D) Prizes? We don't need no stinking prizes! NO PRIZES!
Whether or not one of the prize schedules above is ever put into effect, would you "sacrifice" the prize of 3 Months Advantage for all Round 3 winners for more generous Semi-Finalist prizes?
(B) Yes, even for (B) above
(C) Yes, but only for prizes at least as good as (C) above
(D) Yes, we don't need no stinkin' prizes. NO PRIZES!
