Evo 2014 Poll – Game Entry Fee for Ultra Street fighter IV and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

By on February 13, 2014 at 1:37 pm

After many years of debating this internally with the Evo Staff, we think its time to put it to a vote. Regarding entry fees to Ultra Street Fighter IV and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, would you like to see them remain at $10 per game or would you like to see them increased to $15 or $20? Please chime in and let us know. It would also be super helpful if you could leave a reason in the comments below so that we could understand better. The results in this poll are not binding, but we will definitely take it into consideration. Thanks!

Here are the effects of changing the entry fee from our traditional $10:

  • Bigger cash prizes for the players. 100% of entry fees are awarded as prizes, so more money in pot means bigger cash prizes.
  • Possibly discourages less experienced players from entering the tournament, since these players know they are big underdogs to take home a prize.
