It takes a concerted lack of event participation in general for that to happen.

I think the real 'imbalance' is pushing the idea that there is some huge lack of, or necessity for balance with such a low user count. If you look at the numbers, its not a matter of people competing and getting blown away on the weekends, its a matter of 60% of participants only winning a single event, because they only bothered to join two for the month. 30% are tied for 4th, and the other 10% were actually interested in competing, did, and are in the top 3 (if there were even 30 participants for the month).

Its boring watching you win all the non-luck events, but its not imbalanced.

It is imbalanced. Like you said it's boring watching me win all the non-luck events?? So how do players excel at luck events? They don't only thing people can excel at are non-luck events. Put it this way week nights of events were not hosted that much because the lack of players joining the events, if the weekends were active plenty of events would be hosted it wouldn't be fair to that person who got on everyday Monday-Friday and through out those 5 days only got 12 points because there weren't enough people on Monday and Wednesday to even host and then the player cannot make it on Saturday when tons of people are on and gets beat during that certain hour when the player counts high.


You're saying yourself that it is imbalanced.
