Check them all out and if you can find a better deal let me know and I will go play there.
Honestly, I have never played a local tournament where first place didn't get a prize that payed more than what you put into it...
I've played pretty much everything there is to play in the midwest as far as tournament series and everyone of them have had excellent prize packages which easily paid for entry and paint.
Examples: Chi-Town Series, CTS, ICC
I know none of those tournaments were race to format but there has been race to tounaments that paid well. Ever hear of the Crosshair Challenge? First place was awarded entry to a psp d3 xball tournament. That was the only prize. Plus they were byop. The tournaments always had 8-10 teams... solid d3 xball teams.
I understand the costs of paying a host field and refs because I work at a field and we get asked to host tournaments in the winter all of the time. I love that tournament promoters are trying to run race-to xball style tournaments because it has rarely been done in the midwest. I just think it should be made more worth while for the teams traveling as far as they do to play.
Now I'm willing to make a bet that the teams playing this would much rather a 1600 all or nothing first prize than dividing the prizes between 3 teams.
Is there anyone playing this that would like to disagree?
