Same as normal plus a vip entry ticket. So constructed this week would be 500p plus vip ticket.

And for what it's worth, Sealed next month would be the 6 packs + 200p + VIP ticket.

How long does a tourney usually take. Never done one.

VIP construct 2h30, VIP sealed almost 3h.
Draft swiss : 2h30, competitive draft : 2h if you do the 3 games

Though it can theoretically go up to 3.x hours for constructed VIP, 4.x hours for sealed, x being the amount of minutes you have in your last game. If there are a lot of people (100+) in a tournament, the chances of stragglers timing out at a full hour on each round becomes higher. At some point (if it can happen, don't know these things) HexEnt may program in progression for larger tournaments based on who is waiting and who is not, as opposed to the current system of 'everyone must finish the round before the next round starts'. <- Probably will stay that way for a while given how they do ranking/matching as tournaments progress. Worth coding in other fancy stuff to cut down wait times when they know they'll get 150+ participants per big tourney, I wouldn't imagine it worth coding and QAing if you have less than 100.

You can only do next round starts for those who are ready in a bracket system in a full swiss there are lots of things to take into account.
