(...)The tournament will fill in literallyless than 5 minutes for the first 10 tournaments.
It isn't until the 30 range where sign up takes more than hours. It's not the tournaments that are at fault, it's the amount of time a certain characters stays open THROUGH tournaments.
I thought exactly the same... I arrived late at Kasui's tourneys and even at the 20ish they will fill pretty fast up until 30 as you say.
Tsuyu... oh my... her first tourneys were crazy. If you waited more than two minutes, you wouldn't have a place in the tourney. Really crazy... but then you let her tourneys go up to the 60 and man, nobody signed in for it.
Now i see Cho and while it doesn't take the complete day to be filled with people... it sure takes way a lot of time if you compare it with the first Kasui's and Tsuyu's tourneys...
For me (MEEE), tourneys isn't always a reliable option to release a character. Specially if it takes an eternity to release the new tourney for the character. I'm not saying is a bad idea. It's good but don't abusive them (of course there are more several problems on why people don't sign up... inactivity, lack of interaction between admis and players, etc. but here is not the place to post that)
