Im not sure yet about several moments and need ur opinion, guys. So, by now, im gonna speak out loud to confirm some rules being adequate/fair/etc.

Here are some notes of how i suppose it to be like:

1) Division by tier
Of course, all people have been playing the game for different time - some are more experienced, some are only on the beginning of there way. Thus i've made my mind to divide the participants in 2 groups, so called tier 2 and tier 3 participants. In my mind, this would be more fair since people newer to the game would have this way a better chance of winning participating with others of an appropriate level. This would, however, require enough people participating, in each of the 2 groups, i.e. the lack of participants in one of the groups would make this implementation useless.

2) The trivia event fund
I'm sorry guys, but for now im low on both crowns and ce, and thus i can only suggest creating the so called trivia event fund (TEF for short) using the system of starting fees. If there would be division by tier (see paragraph 1), there's gonna be a separate TEF for each of groups, with smaller starting fee for tier 2, of course. IMHO the 1k starting fee for tier 2 would be a nice choice. As for tier 3, i guess the more the better since bigger starting fee means bigger reward for winners Very Happy. In any case, i would like to know ur opinion guys about which starting fee would suit best. I would have chosen it to be like about 5-6k, maybe more?

3) The way it could go like
This is no doubts that more people participating make it more breathtaking, captivating, exciting, thrilling, fascinating (u can continue this row). But then there shows up the problem of no perfect time for setting up the event. My idea is to make 2 matches if very many people show interest in taking part in the contest. The first one would be sort of a preliminary round. Having the list of people willing to participate, i would make an anouncement every day for people taking part in the event to get in the guild hall. There, im gonna ask questions and get the first results. This way i would be able to get everybody have a chance in taking part in the event, in about 1 week. Afterwards i can see who has got enough points to proceed to final round 2. This would already take time only once, and everyone who made it to the final round, should take part in it. But u guys feel free to make ur own suggestions, maybe we can think of a better system?

4) Rewarding system
And here is the sweetest part, getting the prizes. What do i suppose it to be like? Pretty simple actually:
1st place: TEF/2
2nd place: TEF/3
3rd place: TEF/6
Once again, with division by tier there would be separate TEF for each of the two groups. One more point is, that if there are more than 6 ppl taking part, then this TEF division would be ok. However, if there are 6 participants or less, the reward for the 3rd place would be equal or lower than the starting fee. In this case comes the next system:
1st place: TEF*2/3
2nd place: TEF*1/3
3rd 0 (yep, thats right, u should have tryed harder Very Happy)

That's it. Feel free to ask and share ur own ideas Wink

Added:
Exclamation The lack of my system described in paragraph 3, is that people who have already taken part in the preliminary round can secretly help out the others who havent answered yet so that to share the reward between each other afterwards. What can i do about it? Well, that's right - nothing. So the only thing i could do is asking people playing fairly.
Exclamation Just a note that i have already thought out of the questions im gonna ask. Some of them can be answered using even the sk wiki site, the use of which is gonna be forbidden during the event. But, once again, how am i gonna track people using wiki? Again would i have to ask u guys to play fairly, respecting other players participating with u.

Trivia is a short quiz. U're being asked question, generally on any topic (in our case - the topic of SK-the-game), and u're task is answering them quickly. Questions can vary from easy to difficult, very often - tricky Twisted Evil The more u answer, the better.
