    Paypal prizes are always something to look forward to competing to, even if you don't win it. I think that every week, there should be like a 10$ paypal prize payout for the top faction. Doesn't have to be that much, just something to look forward to.

    You're suggesting a weekly payout to the faction with most value placed that week right?

    It's a good idea and is already existing on other servers, it might also bring more players to the server.

    I like this for one because If I start I'd possibly make the f top leaderboard for maybe only the first week.

    There usually isn't a payout for grace period.

    You can say that about the final buy craft prize as well. It’s all part of factions.

    A paypal prize was trialed a few maps ago and despite everyone saying it will bring more players and it will be better for the community the server was as dead as any other map.

    Having a weekly payout would only benefit f top 1-2 possibly three. What’s the point of having it when ftop 1 on opfacs is 10 bil and ftop 2 is 500 mil?

    I doubt this will be implemented at this stage in time. Possibly in the future if factions becomes popular and there isn’t just one dominating faction.

    If theres no paypal prize, the player count will drop and buycraft vouchers will be useless if the server ever dies.

    Heck, FearPvP is paying the top faction $300 Paypal weekly, and a $1000 Buycraft reward and they have second and third place prizes as well.

    I wasn’t talking about how many prizes they have I’m saying MineHeroes has one or two factions that are actually competitive, on some servers only one faction dominates.

    What is the point of trying to get $10 PayPal if you are at a few hundred mil and ftop 1 is at 10-20 bil. Yes you could raid them but if you look at the last OpFacs map Sendnoots were only attempted a few times, not one of those attempts suscessful.

    Again, the staff already tried PayPal, the server was still dead. People say it will bring new players but to build a player base you need to keep those players. If a player logs on to play the map competitively and sees ftop in the 500+ millions would they really stay?

    I don’t think a PayPal prize is the answer to a larger player base. You need to have good advertisement to bring the new players and then give them a reason to stay.

    'Attempted a few times' as soon as turmoil got to close sendnoots took their spawners down making it impossible for em to catch up, which made em quit the map

    We actually only took our spawners down once because most people had stopped playing and we were not going to be active anymore.

    With the rewards for both servers, you have to hope people will buy stuff from the shop for the server to be able to give out a weekly prize. Because money does not grow on treeeess!!!:(
