Important Update

Hello everyone. Things haven't changed much, we are still developing the site, but like I said before, we can't launch in September.
In the meanwhile I think it's time to start discussing how things will work. It's better to do it now, than when the site is ready.

Like we've mention before this is what we are going to do:

A real Tipster Championship
- We will create a website and feed it with odds from a sports book (Pinnacle Sports probably).
-Users would register (just username, password and address for prizes), and will place their tips from the options available. No real bets would be made.
- We will have a live leaderboard etc.
- Users will pay a buy in + small fee (like in a poker tournament) and will participate in the competition for a month. The buy in would go completely for the prize pot, and the fee would be for us to manage the competition (again just like a poker tournament, but it would be Tipster Competition)
- If we get a sponsor, they will add coins to the prize pool, but it will remain a Tipster Championship (and no real bets will be made)
- We will probably host one or two satellites as well (users will enter that tournament for free, and will earn an entry for the tournament with a buy in)

I think we need to start discussion buy ins, and the tournament structure and site features.
Right now we will just hold one tournament (and probably the satellite as well) to see how things go. From there, we will have different tournaments, running at the same time, with different buy ins (again, like in poker tournaments).

For buys ins: What is the amount you would be ok in participating? (remember that no real bets are made. You make the buy in, and you compete for one month only making tips)

Tournament Rules and Structure: Should we keep the main competition structure, or the side competition structure?
I also thought, why not adding the option to create some custom tournaments? Someone would ask us to create and host a private tournament. He could define the buy in, and set a password. This way you can participate on tournaments with only some friends for example.

Site Features: What do you think it's important? We will have live leaderboard and a Player Profile.
On the Player Profile, we will include wins and losses, ROI%, prizes won, probably bets by sport, etc. Things like that, that you can then use to promote yourself as a good tipster. Also I though about achievements, since they are also fun things to try (like winning at a determined odd, winning a parlay with a determined number of selection, winning X number of bets in some type of sports, etc etc)

As usual, your feedback is very important, so we can provide a good game for you guys.
I don't really understand about choosing a tip, is there a place to give tips? By the way about the 10 $ + 1 $ registration is 10% ascending? if the registration 100 $ then be 110 $ right? there a special table tournament, like a table status, economy, super economy, elite and others?
I still follow whatever the plan I agree Wink

Hello Cacingkemi, thank you for your feedback and vote of trust!
As or your questions, I will reply to which of them separately.

- For the first one, yes, there will be a place to give tips. We are developing a website that will be feeded with odds from gambling sites. Right now we are considering using Pinnacle API for that purpose. If you or anyone else has a better suggestion for how to get the odds, please let as know.

- About the tournament fee, yes, it will always be around 10% of the value of the buy in (just like poker tournaments).
So your example is correct ($10 + $1, $100 + $10, etc).

- I did not understood what you meant by "special table tournament". If you meant different buy ins, like freeroll, low stakes, medium stakes, high roller, then yes. We plan on doing that, but for now we will stick to a main event with an average buy in, that can be supported buy most players, and those that still can't pay, will be able to try to win tickects on a freeroll and a smaller buy in satellite.

If you meant a Loyalty Program, we haven't thought about that, but it could be a good idea. Users could earn points from the fees paid, and then have access to special tournaments or just swap points for tournaments tickets.

Again thank you for your feedback, and please let us know if you have any more doubts or suggestions.

Hi?

Did you gave up the idea?

I think there should be a tipster championship in the next world cup. If you want to do the site idea then you should do some testing before the event.
Competition is in July, time passes quickly and correct things may not be that easy

Hello Karpeles. No, we haven't gave up the idea. In fact, we have actually developed the idea even further, and the project got more complex, and it's implementation is taking much more time than we thought it would.

We could just create a "simple" site, to support one competition on a monthly basis, but we really think this project has potencial, and we want to create it with some additional features that will make it more interesting. You probably remember that we had different types of Side Competition, when we were sponsored by directbet, plus the main competition. We want to keep that diversity, with multiple buy in tournaments (including a freeroll), and multiple types of tournaments (knockout tournament, Mini Leagues, bounty tournaments, etc), with different duration, etc. We also want a referral system that will have some unique features as well, and we want to create a space for users to sell their tips if they want as well.

This is why we are taking much more time than we expected, but like I said we haven't gave up on this idea. We just made it more complex, and hopefully more interesting when we launch it.

I can't make promises regarding dates, but right now, I don't find any reasons that would stop this project from being ready and stable before the World Cup.

Ouch i was expecting this by novemeber,now i see we have to wait until summer,you got good ideas,but you should have made the simple tournament and while the tournament is in progress that you make other updates and adjustments,in the meantime you would grow you reputation

Yes you are probably correct, and we thought about that. The problem is that a lot of things would need to be changed in the way we built the database to support all those future changes we would like to do, so it would almost be like starting from scratch. The good side though, could be exactly what what you just said. If we had already started we could slowly start building reputation and a player base, but we decided to take the risk and go for the long term.

We are already late now, so it's better to try to get a good start, and like I said before, I don't find any reasons that would stop this project from being ready and stable before the World Cup, and once we start it, it should last, so I think everything will go out well in the end.
