I've gone through the process of building up a tournament for a relatively new meta. While some players will actively engage in the process of registering player numbers etc it can serve as a barrier to some others particularly newer players from entering their first tournament. It can be particularly off putting for players from other game systems that do not have a strong co-operative mechanic (ARO) and may serve as a barrier to entering. Is it possible to have events with "guest" players reportable? You could standardise ELO's to be for new players so at 1000 pts or whatever starting points are. I think it ensures that events with new players particularly in new metas can be a thing whilst not be overwhelming to those that are on the line.
