Prize question for SC

Since theres not too many teams signed up are prizes still at the same rate?

I just dont see how they will be making money with 8-10 teams in each division.

Less than 75 Teams playing in the event means 30% less prize money.

Keep your hopes up. From yesterday to today, about 10 teams paid.
And, most teams pay at the last minute so at about 11 ish tonight you will find out how much teams are playing.

Like GP, I don't recall ever reading/hearing that before.
Obviously the 'where' question is answered, but I'm curious about the 'when'.
If it was posted in response to the very low registration numbers, after some teams already paid...then it turns into a bait and switch issue.

No, it isn't. It has to be 75 paid teams. Obviously, someone can not do simple addition. It is at 69 paid teams, which means that we are 6 away from full prize money. So therefore, it is under 75 teams.

i understand that if its under 75 the prizes need to be reduced, but it should be done proportionally. If we are short 6 teams its gets reduced 30%, if we are short 20 teams it gets reduced 30%, that just isnt logical and i hope it is looked into.

I believe that it should be done proportionally, but I think it will be as you stated 6 teams short 30% and same as 20 teams short.

Edit: 70 teams paid for! Only 5 more teams!
