All these events are about how to spend coins. Ofc I understand...it's business. At the end of the day you have to pay your own bills, you can't work for free.
About the last event? If the guys wanna spend 100.000 coins to earn 13.000 it's ok. I don't care. Everyone can spend his own money wherever he wants, it's his legal right.
But there must be the other part of the medal. There must be some way to win coins.
At the moment there are no rewards in OSM. Even not in NewStyleBattles as ''official'', which is ridiculous...but NSB's are boring anyway...
Although I'm more on the side of regular managers, I can understand the guys representing GB's when they say they can't award 100 people because a lot of cheaters. Ok. Think some suggestions like ''winning most MP's'', ''scoring most goals'', ''league without losing a match'' are bad too. Even there mostly cheaters would win and it has nothing to do with ''skills''. They can put own multi-accounts in league's and that's it.
In my opinion (or better to say it's fact) the main problem of OSM is LACK OF serious COMPETITONS which could be awarded. Both, individual and crew competitions. Or better to say, there are few unofficial competitions but gents from GB's don't care about them.
Game without competition is boring.
Here is my suggestion: (I ask all of you admins to read it carefully and think about it in a serious manner.)
The best is to create a team of ''Event managers'' where would be regular managers just like me and all other, who could organize a good tournament.
Open a e-mail only for that purpose.
Each manager who has some experience and thinks he can organize a interesting tournament has to send his idea to you. To make it more serious he has to send his bio, not only from OSM but also from real life, to explain why he think GB's should allow him to runn this tournament etc. Also, ofc he has to send all possible details about the tournament, from the registration period till the very end (who can participate, will it be individual tournament, tournament with teams of 2 or 4 managers, classic battles 5v5, is it league system or knock-out system, amount of boss coins for rewards etc.)
After serious consideration, you choose 6-7 best projects and allow the managers to runn them moving these tournaments to another level. Ofc all these tournaments would be under your control. If you notice the smallest irregularity you will shut down the tournament. After each season of the tournament organizer sends you screenshots and detailed explanation of the current situation, which managers should be awarded etc. you send the coins, and everyone is happy. For you boss coins are just a virtual currency, but all this could make the game much more interesting. More competitive, but also fair. Also, in these tournaments managers would spend 1000's of coins, so it would be a win/win situation in my opinion.
Please think about that.
