I was talking to some friends about this idea, I'm really interested in ultiduo next year with UGC, but seeing how things are right now ATM with the league, do you guys think it would be a good idea to do a small fee for each team so maybe we have a prize pool? I thought 20 bucks wouldn't be bad, 10 bucks per person. Keep it one skill division, top 3 teams walk away with a little extra money, maybe enough to get a new headset or a much needed mouse?

I'm also aware that it might drive some players away, another idea is 2 skill divisions, one being free and the other paid. UGC hasn't had a prize pool in a while and I figured it might be nice. It might be a little extra work just to manage it for the admins and such, but overall this is just an idea, what do you guys think?

10 bucks to play ulti seems way excessive imo. I know I am some poor European but I think that most people won't even play an ulti league/tourney if they have to pay. Second idea is decent, but I'd generally assume that any sort of fee for a gamemode that is not 6v6 will do more harm than good. Maybe try and get some sponsorship, like a trader website, or free DM slots, or signed weapons from Invite players for the top div ?

one big reason I thought it could work is just because its mostly 2 people per team, maybe they got one extra friend playing with them. 20 bucks between 2 or 3 people isnt bad. the prize pool divided up between top 3 or top 2 would actually be enough to replace something you might need, mouse, keyboard, headset or something else. I just really think they should take advantage of the fact that no one is doing this right now in NA for ultiduo. If it really had to come to it and 10 bucks was way too much per person, perhaps just 10 dollars per team, that way its just 5 bucks. If you cant afford 5 bucks idk what to tell you.

Or perhaps 5 dollars per person if its all one skill division, or 10 per person if its two divisions, with one being free.

As for 6s, it would just be a waste of time considering the fact that you should just go play RGL for that sorta thing.

$10 bucks sounds okay if you want to have a competitive experience, don't fear the entry fee these things don't happen for free.

Speaking from experience, the winning formula for my two tourneys was a signup fee of just 2 ref per team which went to the prize pool. Teams were allowed to donate more than that if they wished. In both occasions, the prize pool increased heftily just thanks to the many generous souls who gave a lot more than the measly 2 ref. No team is going to be bothered paying 2 ref to enter a tournament.

I can tell you that the UGC TF2 admin team have been very interested in getting a prize pool going, for all leagues. However afaik the owner of UGC doesn't support the idea.
