Multiple Prize Pools to support multi-level buy-ins
« on: February 06, 2007, 11:52:10 AM »
This is a request that I mentioned in the Help Me section here: http://thetournamentdirector.net/forums/index.php?topic=600.0.

I run a tournament where we allow different levels of buy-in and players get paid out relative to how much they paid in.  It would be nice if TTD could support multiple prize pools.  Let me demonstrate using a simple example...

Level 1 Buy-in = $60 (minimum buy-in)
Level 2 Buy-in = $40 (making $100 total buy-in)

Let's say I have 20 players - 10 buy-in at level 1 and 10 buy-in at level 2.  I now have two seperate pools...
20 x $60 = $1200 (Everyone pays the minimum)
10 x $40 = $400

Level 1 pool pays out 4 places from the $1200 pool
Level 2 pool pays out 3 places from the $400 pool

This, in effect, is allowing multiple prize pools which is probably a big change the current architecture but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway....

PS: At the moment I'm only ever using two levels but I'm getting requests from players to add more levels.  I would imagine I'd probably never have more than 4 levels but who knows.
