I don't know why anyone is suprised pro's are playing for 2.5k prize. I saw Destiny and Minigun play a 2v2 tournament for only a hundred or so.

Catz is as likely to go 3 hatch before pool as he is to 7 pool or do a 2 base burrowed roach timing. Thats why he is so strong you can't really metagame.

The reason we are surprised is because who is dumb enough to spread the word to those kind of players? That pretty much leaves the OCN players ZERO chance to take home the money. I know I surely wouldn't have ever told those kind of players just in hopes of having the tiniest chance and not making it even smaller.

It's like saying "hey guys come take this money from me" free 1000 USD.

That's what the OCN-only tournament is for. More big players means more publicity and the possibility to make future tournaments a bigger deal.

I understand this and I completely understand if OCN themselves posted of this on TL but I cannot imagine a player who would do that.

I think the OCN and Comp. bracket prizes should be switched, or, at the very least, the same, for this very reason. Nothing wrong with allowing non-OCN pro players to take part, but if they can walk off with the vast majority of prize pool, dedicated OCNers are kinda stuck with the short end of the stick.

I mean say non-OCN pros take the top 4 slots in the tournament. That's $1,850 (74%) of the total prize pool (and 95% of the open bracket) and rolling out the door and never coming to anyone on OCN.

And where do you think this money comes from? Ultimately it's the viewership that matters and nobody's gonna want to watch some random master players from a forum, especially with so much high quality content available on twitch.tv now. The money is there to attract better players so that the event gets more publicity. I think that having an OCN only tournament with prizes is already pretty cool. And if this tournament is successful there's a chance for more similar events.

The money comes from the mass amount of traffic on the OCN site itself. I assure you it's not from twitch. Maxblack stated in during his desrow bootcamp that 3k viewers for 8 hours a day for 7 days nets approximately 800 bucks. OCN will not profit much from twitch advertisements. They will have nowhere near that amount of viewers for that duration of time.

If anything the professional players will only discourage others from joining future events. Who wants to compete in something they have no chance in? It's going to be a 4-5 man show.

This makes sense if OCN wants to build it's own sort of... I don't know how you'd say it or what you'd title it, but some kind of 24/7 tourney show for something or other... but is that what the point of this tourney is? I can't really say, but I don't think so, seeing this is only happening this once. It might happen again, but it's not guaranteed.

You might have noticed that OCN is currently investing into it's overclocktv project and it's definitely not a one time ads revenue from a single tournament where they're looking to make profit.
