Divisions will now be decided after the number of participants is confirmed.
Thank you for using Pococha!
The Event division allocation system will be changed starting with Events that have an entry period in December and after.
Previously, the number of divisions for an Event was determined at the time of Event entry.
Now, the divisions will be decided after the number of participants in the event has been determined. By doing so, we hope to prevent eliminate inequalities between divisions by ensuring the correct amount of participants in each division.
Why the Change?
The challenge with the current event system is that there is a difference in the number of participants from one division to another, resulting in inequality between divisions.
For example, one division may have 4 participants who have to compete for prizes. But another division may only have 2 participants in which both win prizes without having to compete.
Therefore, to solve this issue, we will change to the system in which the number of divisions is decided after the number of participants is determined.
Details of the new Event division logic
The three main points of the new division allocation system are as follows
1. The number of divisions will be determined based on the number of participants at the end of the entry period so that there will be no variation in the number of participants among the divisions.
2. The participating broadcasters will be randomly allocated to each division, based on the decided number of divisions.
3. The number of divisions will not be disclosed in advance.
After the new division allocation system is applied, the event will start 10 hours after the entry period ends.
During this time, the number of divisions will be determined and the number of divisions will be made public at the event’s start.
The specific event entry period and event start date and time will also be listed on each event page.
※ ”The number of broadcasters per division” will be adjusted so that there is at least 1 more broadcaster in each division than there are winning spots.
※ The number of divisions will be adjusted so that it does not exceed the pre-determined number of divisions. The number of divisions will not be disclosed in advance.
We want to create as fair an environment for competition as possible at the event.
We believe that Events are a great memory for and part of the story of the diverse communities on Pococha.
That is why we want to create an environment where competition is as fair and competitive as possible for the events that bring the broadcaster and viewers together.
We will continue to analyze the situation and consider the necessary measures to make the competitive environment of the event as equal as possible.
