By now I expect that most of you have realized what looked
to be impossible is happening. 15+ has a huge
number of supporters now. Hundreds of players.
And it looks like something may be done about it.
While it may never be
exactly the way it used to be, I think we have a good
chance at something as long as both sides can stay
reasonable. For those of you that know Master
Trainer Mike, you should know he's someone who will work
his ass for the players. And he's trying to help us
out. And that's what I'm trying to do. Here's
what I'm shooting for; here's what I think are some
reasonable things to ask for to keep the game worth
playing for the 15+ division:
1) 15+ (or the professors =\) get(s) better
tournaments. More tournaments will have better
prizes, similar to those given out at Worlds.
2) 15+ (or the professors =/) get(s) more free
trips. Of course, this is the hardest of them all.
Trips do cost money, but they keep the players happy.
What do I think is reasonable? Well...
I think it's reasonable to give 15+ trips at the Stadium
Challenges. Not a trip, but trips. The larger,
more organized, more supervised tournaments.
More supervised, organized events would make it run
As for how many trips? What I was aiming at was that
The Top 4 at each of the 3-4 Stadium Challenges
would get a free trip to whatever Championship or
large-scale tournament there was. Of course, I don't
make the decisions, but I'm trying my best to try to do
whatever is best for all of us.
Also, Origins and
GenCon, and any type of big event where tournaments can be
held, will hold big events, for all ages, also with good
prizes. I think we're willing to pay entrance
So basically, we want
amount of trips-
so that players who are good have a good chance at winning
a trip. Decent players have a decent chance.
We also want better
Cases to the winners of big tournaments, just like at
Worlds. While it isn't everyone's favorite: U.S.
Currency, it is probably the next best thing.
Last, but not least, I think a lot of the 15+ players
would like to try to get some more recognizition.
At least put some of this stuff on the web-site...
take some pictures of tournaments, post some results, post
some decks... don't hide us from the world like we are a
But all we can do now
is stay together, and if we're lucky, maybe we'll get
something to work with back. While we
all think differently, I don't think any of us would
actually be against better prizes and more trips for the
game. The 15 and older players can play, and be
happy, and the 14 and under players do not have to dread
So, what do you guys
think? Talk to me... over AIM or E-mail.
I think what we have here are reasonable demands that we
can all work with. Just wanna know what everyone
else thinks; and if anyone else has ideas?
