The basic problem with your idea is having different points setting for different Rounds; this will confuse the SFTDs and Players too; they will need to change settings in every game, and the TD will have to check the Table setting with every new game starting.
Therefore it is a must to have all Rounds in all Games the same Points.
The tendency is to have the lowest points for the Hot Tourneys for the following reasons:
The Hot Tourneys are not intended to replace the Regular League Tourneys; they are fillers and should be as quick as possible.
The fees are the lowest possible (25 YEPs) it is not fair to the TDs to spend hours hosting a Tourney with 10 - 30 YEPs reward.
Many Players would not enter a low fees Tourney if the Prize does not commensurate with the time spent; nobody will be willing to spend an hour to win a Tourney with 25 YEPs Fees and 45 YEPs Prize.
Although I hate to play blitzes in any game; I believe that the BG Hot Tourney should be 1111. If you want the BG Hots to be 3333 this will be more acceptable, BUT never at 25 YEPs Fees.
