    I'd bet a lot of money that you'll never see "phantom" tournaments of any form, except for maybe the PVE "draft" dungeon that's been discussed in the past.

    That being said, there are other ways to reduce the cost of participation. We'll see that soon enough.

    We considered this route. I was pitching a version of this idea internally. We collectively decided that positioning ourselves in the free to play section was stronger.

    I'd really like to see Rock league/pauper or some variant of it become an officially supported format some time after the Steam launch. I don't think there are enough players to split constructed queues at the moment, but I think it'd be a great stepping stone once the playerbase is there.

    Here is a question for Chark and co:

    How do you plan on interacting with the steam community, and do you plan on driving that community here or letting it stand on its own with occasional input as you do on the Hex reddit threads?

    So did anyone notice the account creation screen captures in the new Steam video? Just me? Has it been so long since I made an account I have no idea what making a new one is like? Yeah that's accurate.

    Yea man, that's cool. Just thinking about it myself, I couldn't come up with something better than phantom limited and couldn't see a lot of downsides, but I'm totally for a new idea.

    I by no means have the best option, and if Hex came up with a more effective way to buy people into PvP than phantom limited, it could be the real differentiating factor in making Hex a massive success.

    That would be my dream. I'm already firmly bought in myself and don't plan on stopping, so my only dog in this fight is Hex being the biggest it possibly can, and personally I view the cost of initial participation in PvP as the biggest stumbling block in its way.

    There are a multitude of options, but I just hope its on the top of the priority list... Aside from timely PvP releases =)

    They could reduce the cost by adding a second payment option
    Ex: 1400 plat or 700 plat and 30,000 gold ?
