Thats great, many tkx
Thanks for the answer.
I will not be participating. I see no reason to take part in a Championship where real life money will be the deciding factor.
In a normal round with no real prices on stake, i dont mind its pay to win. But in a contest where you can win prizes, you will most likely have to spend more money in the 6 weeks, than what the prizes are worth, if you even want to have a minimal chance to win it. I know you dont force people to buy gold, but alot of people are very competetive, and given the oppotunity, they will try and win no matter the cost.
You could have made an entrance fee to the server. Then you would still have made some money. But this is not right.
You will never find the real champion this way. The best player and association. You will only find the players with the deepest pockets. So stop advetising it like that.
Your advetisement should be more like: "Do you want to pay alot of money to get an advantage over others, and with a small chance to win a simple prize not worth the investments you made, then join the Pay to Win railnation server, that we like to call the Master game or Championship to lure our already very active members to pay more money"
This RNM game will be the ultimate cash cow for the owners of RN, of course its a free internet browser game, its not a charity fund, all costs must be paid to let RN stay alive. It would be fun to see a really Masters with all players have an upgrade account for the duration of the Masters. No Gold buying, just the most addictive players who really set their alarms in the middle of their night time to do a competition or get a good worker. But again that would just give the best players on top and it will costs the owners money.
Further on, i doubt it if all registered players join, that the server will be stable to play
