The Ultimate Payout System (UPS) has been revised for 2013 and will be used on all UFGT9 titles.
The number of players receiving a payout changes when a new entry benchmark is reached. A scaling UPS bonus will be used in order to pay out players who finish in the payscale at 4th place and below.
A Tournament With [X] Number of players will have payouts to the top [Y] number of finishers, which includes a [Z] UPS bonus used to payout 4th and below.
Entries [X] ———– Pays [Y] ————– UPS Bonus [Z]
8-63 ——————- Top 3 ——————- $0
64-159 —————– Top 8 ——————- $100
160-319 —————- Top 16 —————— $300
320+ ——————- Top 32 —————— $750
The top 3 players will be paid out of the main tournament pot as usual. 4th and under will take a flat amount from the UPS Bonus Pool.
1st Place – 60% of the pot
2nd Place – 25% of the pot
3rd Place – 15% of the pot
Other bonuses, to be announced later, will be calculated separately and will be listed below.
Divekick Bonus – $1,000 from Iron Galaxy Studios paid down top 8 [1.) 300, 2.) 200, 3.) 150, 4.) 100, 5.) 75, 5.) 75, 7.) 50, 7.) 50]
