  • At least for my team it’d be way easier for each person to pay around 15-20 dollars instead of having 1 person pay the whole lump sum. Not entirely sure why we haven’t switched to that system yet so uhh please and ty :pray:

  • If all Invite teams are willing to, I don’t see why we can’t! Personally, I believe player fees would help the scene in the long run and would be more streamlined through our existing on-site system that we already use in 6s.

    That said, it’s not something we can change on a whim, but I’ll look into adding it to the survey for Season 13. It would definitely need more support from Invite teams to go through.

  • @Constantly I think without careful planning, this could cause more headaches than it does in 6s. For instance, would subs now have to pay to fully roster as they do in 6s?

    Yeah, they would have to pay to be fully paid up. The positive note of that is that it would mean a fair amount of extra money to go directly into the prize pool. Again, It’s not something we would arbitrarily change, which is why it would need the majority of Invite to agree. It’s definitely a topic I’m glad to see some interest in though. It’s the kind of thing I’d like the regauge anyways to see how the current Invite players feel about it!

  • @BBL One thing to note is that HL used to have player fees instead of team fees. However people complained ( I do not recall the thread on the old forums) and thus it was changed to team fees.

    IIRC, it was something about teenagers not being able to pay the fees because they were poor or had to jump through too many hoops to turn cash into paypal money or something. Someone else might have a better memory of it.

  • @Mothership Teenagers can go to their local walmart/target/circle K/big box grocery store and buy a visa gift card, which they can then use on paypal.

    If they are poor, the issue does not change; even with team fees, they are presumed to be responsible for some portion of it. Per player fees also give people the option to pay others up, which is pretty common in sixes.

  • @Mothership HL used to be a per-player fee system. It was then changed to a team fee system based on feedback from Invite players and leaders.

  • would subs have to pay up? also would this mean there would be ringer fees like there are in 6s?

    im in support of having all hl be paid the same way 6s is but fees past the invite team fee are stupid if there’s no prizepool

  • player fees for all divs plz

  • @ethan why would there not be a prizepool if there is one currently

  • i mean that all divisions past like im should be paid like 6s is
