      Neat idea. I'll try to watch it.

      Just remember to ban wifi. I know it's hard to enforce in other games, but at least you can in Injustice

      its 250 each week for 5 weeks which is pretty good for someone like me. if i get 4th every week id get $250 overall which isnt bad at all imo.

      Yeah man I get that, but it's just really low. Hard to create hype when the money isn't there.

      I'll take no money tourneys over nothing. I appreciate any cash prize no matter how small

      I totally understand your disappointment. We are still a small production and, while it may not seem like a lot, giving away $250 a week is only part of the cost of running a tournament. Unlike many other tournaments in the FGC, we don't staff up with volunteers -- we pay our crew and commentators for their time. Plus, these tournaments are totally free to enter.

      We know a $250 prize pool is small and we hope to increase it next year, but the point of these tournaments is not to put out a ton of cash and attract the biggest names in the NRS scene. The point of these tournaments is to give players who don't have local weeklies to attend an opportunity to compete and build relationships.

      Long term, all we're trying to do is help the scene. Tons of locals have dropped Injustice 2, which means $0 is up for grabs each week. Even when they did run Injustice 2, how many of these weeklies were putting up more than $250? How many of them were charging for entry and making money from attendees?

      At the end of the day, if we can put a little bit of money in players pockets and give them a chance to compete, we feel like we've added some value to the scene. If the big, sponsored players don't want to compete in these weeklies, that's okay. We regularly pay them to appear on our BCF fight cards. These weeklies can be an opportunities for unsponsored and up-and-coming players to continue the grind.
