    By the way, I am 3rd and my prize money is only 40 774.

    That's a pretty vast gap between first and 3rd. Not a bad thing.

    The base payment is determined by your total score, not ranking. The ranking is only a % modifier, and its in tiers. Raph - you were in the same payment tier as Civic, he only got paid more because he had more total points.

    @Wtzky

    From your points, if you won every game you played, you would have played around 56 games. aka. 11 200 gold.

    I can't remember myself too, lol... but i create an excel sheet to estimate the amount of gold i have spend.

    wtzky, in order to get 1690 points, you need to be playing more than 50 games.

    Assuming a very good winning ratio of >80% (52 wins, 4 losses, 6 draws), you would have spend 12400 gold.

    Assuming a good winning ratio of 75%-80% (50 wins, 10 losses, 6 draws), you would have spend 13200 gold.

    Assuming a decent winning ratio of ~60% (45 wins, 25 losses, 6 draws), you would have spend 15200 gold.

    Assuming a mediocre winning ratio of 46% (40 wins, 40 losses, 6 draws), you would have spend 17200 gold.

    Going by your playing standards, i think you should have above decent winning ratio... so you should have earn a profit

    Realistically its impossible to be winning 100% of the meltdown games. Meltdown is too variable to be able to win 100%.

    My guess is that a good player should average >60-70% win rate.

    Raph, did you keep your win-loss ratio record? it will be interesting to see how high your winning % is for meltdown (since you are recognised as a good player).

    On average, in 30 games, I lost 5 or 6. I nearly had a clean sheet of 30 wins early on.

    There are clearly people better than me. For example, Maximont and Zoolgar (my guildmate who nearly taught me everything and has a even better win record than me)
