GC Tickets

Awarding

The most important difference between past and new GC Tickets, is that rather than simply awarding a single number to the event winner(s), a smaller number of tickets will be awarded to players who merely participate, with extra GCT available to those who perform well within an event.

The idea behind this different approach is that it will encourage competitiveness, act as an incentive for players to participate even if it isn't their preferred event, and discourage the act of leaving when losing.

Check here to see how this works specifically for different events:

Penalties

As mentioned above, we want to discourage players from leaving a team event on the basis they are about to lose. Only those on the losing team who remain until the end of the event shall receive their complimentary ticket. In addition to this, any player who leaves with a seemingly inevitable loss impending can be made to automatically or manually receive a GCT deduction. Repeat offenders can possibly be made to receive a temporary events ban.

Degradation

*Edit*
This idea will be scrapped in the event of our plan for micro-transactions being approved.

As a further measure to encourage participation, plus a weapon against the act of currency hoarding, for every week a player goes without obtaining a ticket their total shall be deducted by 5% (rounded).

As an example, lets say a player has earned 100 GCT. The player then stops participating in events (or doesn't log on Classic) for a total of 3 full weeks.
The first week would reduce their total to 95 tickets.
The second week would reduce their total to 90 tickets
The third week would reduce their total to 85 tickets.
After 10 weeks, their total would be 63 tickets.
After 15 weeks, their total would go from 51 to 48 tickets, half of their original total.

Not really liking the fact players have to continuously play events to keep their tickets, if your going to do this you should just stop the deduction to half their event tickets.

As said this idea will be scrapped if all goes how we hope regarding the global shop. But this isn't something that will have that big an effect to most players.
