I'm looking at the tournament queues and no one is signing up for Standard. I don't want to sign up there and be stuck for a week waiting. Even more than an hour of waiting is not tenable for me.

If no one joins... then no one joins and the tournament doesn't start. Since 8 to play, no matter the time.

 

I would like to think this is a reaction against the latest changes, people don't playing to respond to the elimination of Legacy events. Would be astonishing, but I don't think so :( Although, probably the Random prizes have slightly something to do with that.

 

Just, check how much people there are before joining. If 4-5-6 join and wait. If 7, no need to say haha. If 1-2-3 go to Vs (or whatever) and check later, to save your own time.

 

Until they manage a better method, which is something not happening soon, I guess that's all we can do.

So is the real question "do I get my tickets back if I leave the tournament before it starts?"

 

If so, I'm pretty sure the answer is "yes," though I haven't entered one since they made this latest change.


"Swishonk!" That's what's happening!

Trying to help, if possible.

Yes. They are returned. It was before and it's now (just tried so I can confirm!). If you leave before the start, your tickets are back :) Changing  this feature would be horrible.

Oh ok. I always thought once you join, the tickets are spent, so you need to wait until the tournament is completed. Thanks!

There's more. You join and you leave before starting. Your tickets are back to you.

 

You join and the Tournament starts. Then your tickets are charged. If you don't win until playing the final match, YOU CAN LEAVE the event before that ends (who have to play will continue). You can join another tournament, this can start or not, you can go to VS, to Trainer challenge, to Trades... and you'll receive a pop up message inside game with your rewards when: the tournament you left end and you're able to get a message (not in the middle of a game of course, but in between games or whatever).

 

So actually once you loose, you can leave right at that moment. Don't need to wait for the tournament to end all the matches while you doing "nothing" :)
