Why is Tiered Pricing Gone?
Initially, the primary goal was to receive registrations earlier. Teams were rewarded for registering earlier by receiving a lower price, while the ESSC was able to better harmonize facilities, divisions, and schedules.
Two years into tiered pricing, we have observed some substantial disadvantages to the program.
- In order to receive a slightly lower price Captains were forced to carry a significant charge on their credit card for weeks before collecting from teammates
- Many players found the program to be confusing because they had to remember several different deadline dates and pricing changes
- Players who signed up later in the registration cycle were punished by having to pay a higher price
These factors, coupled with constant feedback from our players, caused us to re-imagine a better payment system for our players.
