If i'm paying $40 to enter an AM tourney, i want a shot at getting something back.
If I'm paying $20 to enter an AM tourney, then its all about the competition for me.
But at the same time, i don't just want a pre-chosen stack of discs, then i just have to sell them at cheap prices (i suck at selling discs) and it cuts it even more.
I would play in the same number of tournaments, and the same tournaments if i just was playing for a trophy. I think if it goes trophy only, it should be 1st, 2nd, 3rd. Too many tourney's I've seen only do 1st.
If EVERYONE went to trophy only, lowered entry prices a little bit, i think it'd work. Kind of like the smoking ban in bars. At first people complain, but at the end, they really want their beer at a bar. People like competition.
