Tournaments are a great part of smogon, in fact I'm enjoying just playing pokemon and everything as is right now. When I look at tournaments though, I feel like there isn't really much incentive to play besides "Oh, I can say I've won xyz" and improve your street cred. I mean all that's well and good but I am bringing up the idea of pay to play tournaments again. People pay an entrance fee for the tournament and then play to obtain first place and a big portion of all the fees collected. Second place receives less than first and third receives less than second. Something like 50% 30% 20%?? This should be easy enough to do with PayPal, though that's me mostly guessing, I'm sure there's ways to do it without much effort though. The thing about these tournaments is that we want to make it the most fair we possibly can. So, while I think all tournaments should be best of 3 anyway, these tournaments specifically should have to require it. I also didn't know if IS or PR would be better for this or Tournaments so w/e.
