I understand that, but if the payout structure is meant to go 8 people deep, generally there isnt much separating the payouts from 1-2 and 2-3 and is ALMOST a slap in the face. Sure its rec, I get that, if I want to win more, move up. People pay and play to win..not donate, thats why I stay in rec. So if I battle the hell out of 2nd place and win, getting slightly over $10 more is discouraging knowing that the guy who finished JUST above half is still walking out with something. To me it shows that we arent 'forcing' people to play better and getting into the payout field

Im not suggesting I know what the payouts SHOULD be, but I know many people in my division that has discussed payouts going as deep as they do and rewarding 1-3 (even 1-5) as shallow as they do
