  • General Tournament tickets feedback

    Hi there Valve, I just read the blog post and I'm here with some suggestions and overall feedback to hopefully help you guys make good decisions.

    Alright, first off I love the idea and it'll possibly help tournament organizers have another revenue stream and it'll make them less reliant on sponsors.

    Now, a few concerns regarding pricing. You're competing with free (through streams) so your price can't be exorbitant. I also hope you don't go with the same price for every tournament, there is a very large difference between watching The Defense or watching the Premier League. They're both good tournaments but people generally are more attracted to one compared to the other for prestige reasons among other things (caster affinity and so forth).

    Secondly, I'd like to suggest a 'Only Replays' purchase option. It would be cheaper than the whole package but would only allow the user to watch replays. Think of it as educational material to sell. Lots of players would benefit from watching player perspectives from the best players in the most crucial matches.

    Thirdly, love that you're willing to incorporate some sort of way for sponsors to advertize in-game and following that line of thought I think another package would be in order. A cheaper version would contain sponsor adds while a premium version would disable adds. Maybe some people won't want to see adds in their game, let them make the choice with their wallet.

    Fourth, consider doing this for inHouse leagues as well at a much lower price than tournaments.

    Alright, that's all I have to say on the subject for now, love the general idea and hope the implementation lives up to the potential.

    I like your second point for "only replays" purchase option, would be great if we have "only live games" purchase option as well

      Personally I think live games should be free, this way any one can tune in and watch the player perspective of the players to see how they do things. Wasn't that the whole point of Player Perspective in the first place? Making people pay for it seems very counter-productive to me.

          Tournament replays will not be free. Also, in Wc3 you had to get the replays from the organizers.

              Yeah, I really hope replays will be free after the tournament finished. (maybe only after the tournament finished if they think they might lose customers due to making them available) It doesn't matter if they will get published by Valve (which should be easier) or the tournament organizer / gg.net replay database.

              It's a great learning tool for a lot of players.

                So I bought the Defence ticket. How long do the matches stay on my steam account once the tournament ends?

                    how about valve make one match ticket?
                    its must be cheaper than whole tournament ticket
                    i don't want to watch all the match
                    just the match what i like to watch

                    if the defense ticket price is $5
                    maybe na'vi mtw match is 5 cents

                    or just like they said
                    make it free
                    and give ads to it

                      i would like to have a flatrate kind of thing
                      lets say i pay 30€ once and i can watch every tournament there is with it
                      that would be really awsome
                      some people watch more and some people watch less
                      split into every tournament there is
                      bigger tournaments get more money
                      smaller tournaments get less money from the share
