Had a thought over the weekend to remove the 16-person limit on tournament entries and allow anyone/everyone to enter a car. The tournaments will still only be 16-car brackets so the seeding would happen by pulling 16 random entries.
So if 50 people entered cars for a tournament, the game would randomly select 16 to be entered. The cars not used would return to general population for future entry.
Only exception I was thinking would be if it's your first time entering a car you would automatically be entered (unless there were 16 new entries for the same bracket, however, unlikely). There could be achievements/bonuses for some of these actions.
Does the random selection sound more or less fun?
How turned off would you be if your car isn't selected?
Do you think this would make for more interesting brackets?
