As I think the WRTT is pretty boring since it cameback except for the AO but one interesting tournament in 6 weeks (10 tournaments) is ridiculous. I just would like to know if adding that rule could give the players more interest or give them a reason to write some more articles :

The player(s) who write the most or the best article in the/of the week would have an additional five points (the one you use for the sets and not the ranking's one)

I think the one with the best arcticle would be better.

Also what about player profiles, they have them in other games and it's easier to remember your rankings and stuff.

I'll go with the best because some players are writting 2-3lines to count this as an article. :p
But the 5extra points is only for the one tournament?

Why should it be for only one tourney and not 4 ever?

What I do in my game to get players to write articles is give them 10 ranking points for writing at least two articles in a tournament thread. The player of the week writes the most articles (over 2) and receives 30 ranking points.

Maybe you could develop something like this. :wavey:

I think the same as Joey - for the next tournament and maybe 10 points because the points difference is big here. But for the most articles - the best is up to you and can cause problems between players

I just tought that adding 5 permanent points would be more simple instead of 10 points for one week and the following week taking them off. Plus I appreciate your idea GracefulVenus but I prefer not adding ranking points like this as it would be much more trouble as players would have to defend articles points and as I have the other option of the points that you use in the sets, I tought it would be more simple.

Well, I think you should give extra points for the most articles, and makes criteria to describe "article" (I mean, not 3 lines etc. :p)....but the question is...will you keep it forever?

Then for only one tournament (the one of the next week) and 10 points for each set instead of 5?

I agree. We should get 10 extra points only for one tournament! ;)

The the new rule would simply be:
The one who makes the most articles (at least 7 lines and not in size 20) earns 10 points for the tournament of the next week.
