I don't know about you guys but I am more worried about Hex Ent potentially losing money every week from Bash. With a $7 entry prize and a total cash prize of $1000, the number to breakeven is 143, and we don't even hit that on the first week. If things stay like how it should be, as in the participants are not going to go over the first week's amount, then Hex Ent is losing money every week just to "promote constructed". Assuming we have 100 participants from here on out, Hex Ent is losing $300 per week on this event.
"Hey, what about people who buy constructed deck to play the event? Shouldn't that count as an income?" First and foremost, unless said person bought the constructed deck just to play Bash, and moves on to other constructed tournaments from there, then no, it should not count. For players that are already playing constructed before Bash announcement, then they already bought their deck before Bash and Bash has no influence in their decision to purchase the deck. Until I see ladder activity pick up or new names coming into Bash in the next few weeks, I will continue to assume that Hex Ent is losing money with Bash.
- if hex considers this as marketing then its yearly cost is 52k - any entry fee they pick up
- if hex considers all their cash tournament as a one total cost ( Bash +clash). Clash brings in more then it gives and Bash brings less but together are they losing or making or breaking even. -
In any company you cannot just calculate one lost of something and eliminate it because you lose money. You have to considered what it brings as a total bottom line ( will it retain players? Will it increase the demande of cards? Will it bring in new players and will they spend= all of this is harder to quantify)
