Magic: the Gathering in the UK
2x Top 8 Qualifiers
I could see myself paying in advance, but its not without problems.
What do you do if 8 people pay up front and still only 5 turn up? Run a 5 person qualifier? Same number of slots
I agree with this. Special cards > cash-money. And if the winner wants money, they can just sell the cards.
This series is about playing Magic in its purest form, with the most powerful cards ever printed - its about giving people the opportunity to once again play with their favourite cards, and to experience insane combinations they otherwise would never have encountered before.
My only concern is getting people to actually show for the qualifiers. It will be a shame to organise a qualifier for a Saturday, and then only 5 players show up.
I'm thinking about perhaps doing this:
If you sign-up to the tournament, you pay upfront. If you miss your qualifier, tough luck. Regardless of the reasons why you missed it, I still need to pay for prizes!
Would this turn people away?

Id be willing to pay upfront (regardless of the horrible failure that is likely to ensure) I'd just need the date as it coinciding with essay deadlines would be bad times
Set up a paypal account Warren
I will share my Paypal as soon as the event is confirmed.
How do you guys propose is the best way to register players? First come first serve? Text Message to me?
I'm thinking about creating a thread on this forum, and the first 32 people to add a 'REGISTER ME' post are registered and emailed paypal details. They will then have 10 days after a set date to deposit the fee, or their spot will be given to the next inline after the first 32.
What do you guys think?
