As we all know, the ranking tournaments have been around ever since early June. And the requirements for them is to reach a certain postion. We all probably hate that.
Not to mention they're world wide. Since Project Aces and Bandai Namco are located in Japan, they of course give Japan a distinct timing advantage. Not to mention fuel is CHEAPER there, and the tournaments end at 5 P.M Tokyo time. This allows the Japanese players to make a run during the final hours while those who are in Europe, North America, Africa, and South America are sleeping.
Events should be regional to the continents, beginning with the Strigon tournamet. Since it is only regional, Japan, and other countries are out of your way to F**K with you.
As an alternitive, instead of tournaments, prizes should be givin out once you reach a certain point levels. Since Bandai Namco has made this game a more of a Pay to Play/Win, the more you pay, the more points you earn, the better prizes you get. The more you put into it, the better the prize is. AND the prizes earned at a certain point level, is not limited. Anyone that reaches the level gets the prize. Not the top 200 or 1000. It shouldn't matter how long it takes, 5 days, 2 weeks, 2 months. Plain and simple.
Another alternative that everyone probably would want, is to make everything a DLC like Assault Horizon.
