Speaking as someone who will likely never compete in these tournaments, and even if I do, likely never place well... I agree. I am generally a fan of more people winning than less people winning. Sure it cuts down a bit of the appeal of the top prize... but let's face it, you're not gonna make a living off hex tournaments anyways, so reducing the top prize isn't that big of a deal in my eyes.
