FFA payment structure changes
Starting with this ref wages period, the structure of FFA payments will be changing slightly. Based on popular rewards schemes, instead of money all participants will receive a ribbon even if you didn't actually win the FFA.

But really, this isn't a new ref thread and the payments will actually change. FFA Fridays/Weekends will no longer exist. This bonus structure has served it's purpose. URPG has entered a much more active era in which FFAs always tend towards the larger end of the scale. We also don't want to encourage the all-to-common act of joining an FFA just for the first turn, pushing it into a high bracket, and making an easy $4,000 - $5,000 for sending for one turn.

Instead, the payments for ALL FFA's will be changed regardless of when they are run:
  • Base payments will increase from $1,000 to $2,500
  • The first three out receive $2,500, and payments increase by $500 per Pokemon eliminated after
  • The winner of the FFA will receive a bonus $1,000
  • The referee receives $2,000 + $500 per Pokemon
This payments are roughly based on the middle tier of the old bonus structure, which was +$2,000
  • Everybody gets at least $1,500 more
  • The winner gets $2,500 more
  • The ref gets $2,000 more, which is equal to the winner.
Finally, as an example, a 10-player FFA would look something like this:
  • 10th: $2,500
  • 9th: $2,500
  • 8th: $2,500
  • 7th: $3,000
  • 6th: $3,500
  • 5th: $4,000
  • 4th: $4,500
  • 3rd: $5,000
  • 2nd: $5,500
  • 1st: $7,000
  • Ref: $2000 + 10 x $500 = $7,000
