Some changes have been made to Marathon day. Effective 5/26/2011, all Marathon Day Tourneys will be Random Seeded - this will give new players a better chance at winning and this is what it is all about. Marathon Days are a great way of recruiting new players and to increase the Leagues ovarall activity in general.
There are a lot of reasons to participate in Marathons:
- It helps our league to grow and remain robust.
- It attracts new players; new players are essential to our growth.
- A lot of YEPs to be won, not just from the marathon tournaments but also from the YEPs pot accumulated throughout the Marathon day (5 YEPs per participant, and by garnering a place in the Marathon Day Championship event (MDC).
This is how the Marathon pot is split...
20% To the Winner of the MDC
10% To the Runner-up of the MDC. In 1x3 Leagues this will be split amongst the 3 Semi-Finalists
5% To the Player who Won the highest number of Tourneys. In case of equal Players the total of the 1st and 2nd Prizes will be split equally
10% To the Player who Won the second highest number of Tourneys
15% To the Player who participated in the highest number of Tourneys. In case of equal Players the total of the 1st and 2nd Prizes will be split equally
10% To the Player who participated in the second highest number of Tourneys
