Quoted from Marvin:
It, under the new rules, effectively funnels money from local tournaments to Josh and his elite level friends who play in the nationals. Otherwise, not too much to offer.
What a shitty way to mislead people about the IFPA.
Seems how 75% of the 1$ stays in the State that events are played in, going to the 16 top players in that state.
But I guess all those 16 Ohio players are Josh's elite buddies tooo?
The IFPA endorsement is something that can or can't be a benefit to an event.
Players enjoy points and competing, and always want a way to evaluate how they are doing, it provides that.
If your plyers don't care, then don't bother with it.
They are not really there to do your Promotion work, or automatically boost your event, not sure where one gets that idea.
The reason events are graded on caliber of players is because that's how it should fairly be done. Pretty sure it is modeled after the PGA structures that rank Golfers. It really makes no sense to give people free points just for playing each other if nobody is any good, and isn't fair to players that compete in tougher events.
Anyway, let's get the same gripers here again rehashing their tired complaints, as Levi noted.
Nobody had a bad word to say about IFPA before, when Josh and company were doing all this for free.
But take a dollar, and then return it to the players, oh my!!
