So $5 dollars is about 3 english pound which is the same as a pint of beer or a starbucks coffee!

Hardly going to break the bank and no one forced me to sign up.... and hey I might even enjoy it.

for $5 entry and 1000+ players, the prizes should be increased. Why should the winner of a semi final get the same as a loser of the semi final. Anyone who plays in the grand finale should receive double that of a semi finalist. Like the idea and $5 is fair and not much at all, but prizes need to increase. That's my thoughts anyway.

No, I don't think it is actually. It will help, obviously, but the main goal is to get ppl back to CC. The annoying thing is that you can't make the Conquer Cup free, and below 5 dollar the transaction costs are too high to really be useful. But the tourney feels quite thin to me.
Won't stop me from joining though, the official status and being the first conquer cup counts in my book (and hopefully helping the site you enjoy).

Since the first day I joined this site, it has always been strictly enforced that no forms of gambling are allowed. We aren't even allowed to gamble points, much less money.

Now, I do enjoy sports betting and other small amounts of gambling and I have the extra income to do it with no problem. Therefore, I like this and will participate (even though it has a very bad EV). But do not sit here and tell us we can't gamble, then create a tournament that is exactly that where you benefit and take 75% of the profits and put them in your own pocket. As someone else suggested, if you are going down this route, open up other tournaments to have entry fees and allow them to keep the entry fees in the prize pool for the tournaments with you taking a small amount on top. Not this 75% bullshit.

I will say I agree with others that have posted though. Very bad business move on your part. Eventually numbers will go way down I think but you may be able to get more money per player from those that are here. I think total revenue drops though.

This sounds like horseshit to me. Premium members should get free entry. Shouldn't you be adding to the perks of membership instead of diminishing it's value?

And Conquer Credits? Those schemes to get free credits lower the respectability of the website immensely. I stayed with this game because it was classy and well put together. I see these moves as a crumbling of the foundation.

I don't mind contributing a few bucks to have fun and support the site at the same time. It clearly is a fund raiser.

People need to eat.
Servers aren't free.

I know i use well more than my $20 premium allotment a year in b/w alone.

Why do first round losers have a chance at free entry next year, but bronze cuppers receive nothing? How about an increased chance for free entry...something?

Good question. For now the answer seems to be: whoever you want to gift the prize too change their password, you log in as them and fill out the form and then they can change their password back again afterwards.

We will ship the iPad to wherever you are, free of charge.

If for some reason you cannot use the gift voucher where you live, you'll get something of equivalence.

well these is lack site,so he can do everything what he like.
I realy have impresion that something new will be implemented for all comunity , but i dont know how these implementation will bring people here in CC? Now its look that these tournament for noob people who have money to spend,dont knowing that right in first round can be eliminated,and play only one game. Tournament structure are very bad, because dont have structure who will be funny and interesting, and these is what need to attract people. I think that these tournament will fail right in start,and dont get enough players, because 5$ its sound like small money, but in mine country you can buy groceries for very nice dinner,or you can buy 14 beers.
One step backward.
