Yes, we will still be having Star Tournaments. The prize tier will have to be serverely reduced, but I would like to keep hosting star tournaments even with 8 player and 16 player turnouts. HOWEVER, for these tiers we will -ONLY- count players that are actually present on the server. If there are not 8 actual players present on the server playing in round 1, obviously it will not be an 8 player ST. If there are not approximately 16 players on, then it will not be a 16 player ST.

New Tiers:
24 Man ST:
1st 6 SP
2nd 5 SP
3rd 3 SP
4th 2 SP

Swiss Bonuses:
3 SP for x-0.
2 SP for x-1.

16 Man ST:
1st 5 SP
2nd 4 SP
3rd 2 SP
4th 1 SP

8 Man ST:
1st 4 SP
2nd 2 SP
No other prizes awarded.

But, we do need to continue STs even if they are 8 man single elimination and I would like to see TMs continue with them, even if the reality of the game's playerbase has changed the way they will be done. You can do in-game registrations, you can do in-game announcements like we used to do way back when. There are more than 8 players on our servers, so you can even go by some casual duels and try to get them to join. Be proactive, etc.

On an 8 man ST, you really don't even need to bother with decklists and whatnot either, because the big focus just needs to be on getting people to play right now. This isn't 2 years ago when we had 100 people. Take it casually and just get people to play.

Players, please join our tournaments. We appreciate the support you continue to give our game, and tournaments are an excellent opportunity to test your decks in a competitive situation. How you choose to compete is up to you, but tournaments have always given me some of my best experiences in this game because there is something at stake. Please know that we are doing what we can to keep rewarding players who continue to support us.

24-man tier.

6 for first. 5 for second, 3, for third, 2 for fourth.

Also changed 16-man's first place reward to fall in line with 24. -1 for first, if curious. Also split the 3rd and 4th for 16.

Added swiss bonuses for 24-tier. Falls in line similarly to SST's version.
