The interest in WPPRs is the leverage we’re using to implement this.
If there’s enough interest in players wanting to earn WPPRs and follow their world ranking then this will work. If there’s not then we’ll quickly learn that as well.
I’m mostly interested in seeing how it’s implemented at the TD level. For example at Pin-Masters we won’t be charging an additional $1 per player. Like the Circuit fee we will take it out of the prize pool (so only the winners at the event subsidize).
I would imagine most larger tournaments go that route, but in insanely curious to see if my Pinburgh entry fee goes up $1 in 2018
