Early registration bonus chips

Postby Hubeedoo » Sun Apr 18, 2021 3:13 pm

I like to give players bonus chips for registering before game start. To do this currently I have to raise the start stack by say 1500 chips and then a late registration penalty of 1500 chips. This is a round-about way of giving players bonus chips. Some players a "put off" by having to pay a late registration penalty. Can that be changed in the software for bonus chips be given to registered players up until start time, so tournament info doesn't say late penalty chips

The same person that is put off by paying a late penalty is also going to be equally put off when those notice everyone else got a bonus. The end result is the same. The whole idea of a penalty is to deter people from a certain activity (like showing up late). Anyway, you could essentially do this using the "Bonus ticket" setting. Give everyone the ticket and remove the ticket from all accounts a few seconds after the tournament starts. This could also be automated using callbacks and the API.
