Also, before #9, I added one more line to #8 (which I forgot to include) ->"What is more, in some events I can use same PW for all nodes. In others, I can only use him/her in one noe. In some events, I can change PW once I started playing. In others, I can't. Why there is no info about it? Why do we need to guess, check wiki or write down notes?"
I think it always says 'once locked' on the events where your PW is locked in, but have no way checking them to test this!

Before the final, 10th entry...Special Mentions</code></h1><div><pre class="CodeBlock"><code>C) Event prizesImagine a World Chess Tournament where the main prize would be 5 Dollars and 3 packs of crisps. Sure, it's something, however do you think people would take this tournament seriously?That's how if feels about prizes in many events, in particular the weekend ones. 5 Jewels for Rank 1 in "Hunter X Bonder", and many similar events? Wow. It really makes me want to play. Just imagine what I'll do with such a generous reward.

It took me a while to notice this, but the game has categorically placed newer events into either "Individual" or "Coalition" groups. The prizes for those events are weighted based on that designation. Coalitions events, like HxB, pay out the bulk of their rewards to top-placing coalitions. If you're on a low-performing coalition, you won't get many rewards from that event because of its focus on the team aspect of this game. Individual events, like today's StV, are designed to give people the chance to get rewards for their individual ranks without needing to be on a coalition.
I'm not sure how that got borked by me simply quoting another post... and I'm not really in the mood to fix that, either.
I have a similar feeling, too. However, even this rule often does not apply as we still get many individual events where Rank 1 prize dissapoints. For example: all 5 Challenges of the Courts, Terrors in the Shadows, or Emrakul's Corruption. And it's not that it only applies to old events. Colors of Magic is new and its Rank 1 prize is very little, too.
And regarding the coalition events: following the earlier example, it's as if there was a group chess tournament, where the main prize for team #1 would be, say, 10000 Dollars, plus 5 Dollars and 3 packs of crisps bonus to individual members of the team. Sounds silly.
