I posted this in feedback, but I'll add it here too.  The new "heat" reward system seems to penalize par time players and dilute rewards.  I don't see benefit from the later heats and so I'm going to end up playing less during this tourney weekend.  

To be clear, I think it could be a good idea, but the implementation here doesn't seem to benefit the player community.

Could you please specify which rewards you mean?

I'm not sure how to answer the question.  Each tier of a heat has rewards, but by staggering the heats over time each tier cannot be completed with prior points.  So all of the rewards from each tier are diluted more than if the prior mechanic for rewards was at issue.  Additionally, for example, if you turned the game on on Sunday, instead of Saturday, you needed 5k points for the same rewards as 1k got you the day before.  That said, I didn't ss each tier to confirm exact numbers.  Does that answer your question?

We've launched multiple Tournaments (Heats) with short duration. I understand that some players can't participate in all of them. Next Heats require more points to get rewards, and that's normal.

I don't think you actually addressed the issue, which is that the new system is less friendly to part time players and dilutes rewards more than before.  And unlike prior tourneys, early participation has no impact on later participation (say comparing first to last tiers), which is also not the same or player friendly.

I've got your point, Chicken Leg. 

However, these Tournaments are dedicated to our August Event, and they are different. However, we still launch ordinary Tournaments along with them. You can participate in the ones you like more.
