Re: New Tournament Prizes on ChessCube

Can you reduce the crown entry fee for tournaments like Warzone Carnage to 2/3 crowns? No one joins it as it's 5 crowns to enter.

Re: New Tournament Prizes on ChessCube

This does make tournaments like World Warzone and Lightning tourneys quite unappealing cubitwise. Still, I dont wanna be ungrateful, the change is welcomed since it raises the prizes and also lets more players get a prize. Thx!
