Other than qualifying system, I am more suggest that, for all shiny gift tournaments, set at least 64 or 128 seats (since 256 takes too much time to play). Arrange 2 tournaments with same gift, the second tournaments start in after 5min of the first one (So 1st tournament start register at xx:45, 2nd tournament start register at xx:50). The only problem is that, we giving out double gift now (
Qualifying system by ladder is fair but not all, since some of players dont have time on daily ladder and unwilling spend time on the ladder matches. And ways to qualify for tournaments would be so hard for new players I believe. Thus I am more prefers to open 2 tournaments in a time, reduce cash prize but keep the main price (like comps, shiny) for the players.
I dont have fast hands to click fast enough to join tournaments actally (((
