good evening,

 

I am sitting here between "battles" in tonight's tier 7 technical victory fest tournament and wondering why I hate myself this much.

 

I understand at the end of the day, people who show up are pretty much guaranteed gold, but a line needs to be drawn somewhere.

 

I am suggesting the implementation of a punishment system for no-shows in tournaments, especially 1v1's.

 

Possible punishments for no shows could be completely new or reworked from the current Clan Wars system. 

 

Examples:

  1. Warning
  2. 10% of earned gold deducted
  3. 50% of gold earned deducted
  4. 100% of gold earned deducted

Or reaching a certain number of no-shows across all tournaments could result in a temporary ban from tournaments that scales similarly to the in-game and forum ban system, or a mixture of the ideas I have provided.

 

Thanks for your time and please discuss below :)

yeah people bot the tournies hoping to get some gold for nothing, frustrating when you are trying to enjoy the tourney format.  I agree whole-heartedly with your premise

They already did do something to somewhat punish them. You have to actually win a battle in order to earn any gold from a tournament. Also, in the 1v1, doesn't only first or second place win gold?

That's not a punishment, that's just a lack of a prize. Top 7 get some amount of gold.

Just don't cry pls players do have real world responsibilities and may not show. RL trumps virtual world.

The dumbest thing anybody has ever said. Be quiet and get your free gold. I actually have to work for a living and if I get home 5 min late I miss a game or two. Pro tip, you are not the center if the universe, I hope you learn this soon.

We punish the ones that repeatedly sign up for tournaments and don't show up, we kick them out of the clan.
