Hello everyone, we are making some major changes to the way CG premium
and entry fees work. This is due to our existing model having long been unsustainable and to allow us to offer better services to you.
Going forward, to compete in all of our leagues (CGa, CGd, CGm, CGi, CGp) you will be required to have an active premium
subscription throughout the season.
Further to this, players competing in CGm/CGi/CGp will have an additional entry fee at the start of each season.
- $10 per player.
- $15 per player.
- $15+ per player, this will vary heavily depending on the game and LAN final details.
All leagues will only require the "core" players to pay the entry fee, ie only 4 players for 4v4, 5 players for 5v5 etc, any subs will only require premium.
CGo ladders - no restrictions.
PUGs - limit per week of how many you can play without premium. (currently 10 per week)
Tournaments - limit per week of how many you can play without premium. (currently 5 per week)
Similar future services we offer that appeal to "regular" players will follow these guide-lines and hopefully increase the value of CG Premium.
We will continue to offer solid free services to new users and very casual users. Regular users will hit various restrictions reasonably easy. Please understand that it costs us quite a lot of money to offer our services and if you're using our site for free then other users are subsidizing your costs.
Between league seasons we will run an increased number of premium tournaments and ODCs. We will regularly update what premium tournaments we offer based on which games on the site have the most premium users.
Given that I have held off making this change for a very long time it may seem like quite a dramatic change to many users. Having said that, hopefully most users will see our premium services as worthwhile.
