Re-buy and Payout questions or suggestions....
« on: December 11, 2006, 10:45:51 AM »
There are a couple ..odd things i want to do for my 07 POTY system.  I'd like to offer only one rebuy per player per quarter.  Now, i can manually track that one if there is no way to add that into the settings to block it from happening but if you know of a way to do it through TD, i'd appreciate the info...

Also - i'd like to set the pay outs to change based on the number of players.  For instance - if we have 6 to 8 players - the top 2 get paid at 70/30 but if we have 9 or 10 players, the top 3 get paid at 50/30/20 and so on.  Other than manually changing this at the last minute, is there a way for this to change based on number of players? 

Let me know what you guys think. 

Thanks
Bishop

pretty sure question number 2 regarding changing payout schemes is a feature request that I asked for a bit ago and that Corey was considering for future version.

You'll have to keep track of rebuy count across tournaments.  The TD will do this for you in a tournament, but it won't limit rebuys based on rebuy count across multiple tournaments.

"Automatic prizes" is what you are looking for in your second question.  This feature automatically sets what the prizes (payouts) will be based on the number of tournament entries.  As the number of buy-ins changes, the prizes will automatically update.

The Automatic prizes can be configured to use your own prize levels.  Look in the user guide in the "Prizes" section, subsection "Automatic Prizes".
