The recent decrease in prize pool for NAC without too much fuss from the players and the broader community has me thinking that even if the sponsorship had been acquired, would it have been better to increase the number of participants by decreasing the prize pool? Considering NAC4 is happening in a larger place, surely a few more participants could be accommodated. And with $50k you could have at least 10 more participants? I can think of arguments for and against. For example, $100k sounds a lot different than $50k to casual viewers. And those viewership is what the tournament organizer might be trying to attract. On the other side, having a larger number of players allows the competitive scene to grow and keeps tournaments fresh. Some fan favorites may not miss out. But again there will always be people missing out. Thoughts?
