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.

So, 5 people will get a $50 gift certificate, and one person gets the apple toy. What do you guys do with the rest of the ~6000 dollars?

Count me out. But I would probably be willing to pay $5 to see things like the Map Rank coding fixed.
