I'm on PS4.

Yesterday, one of the societies I'm in (Team Reacharound) had an event for top 10 in current season points, but it just let everyone play the main event and let no one into the alternate event.

Now today, my society (Masochist Sim club) had the exact same thing happen, someone in 23rd place on the points list is in the main event, and no entries to the alternate event.

Is this not working for anyone else?
It seems to work before the patch, but now it's not!

Furthermore, I have a special Winners only main event next week, and if this is broken it totally kills that event, It was a chance for non-winners to also have an event to compete in and get their first win.

Also, this totally screws up the playoffs because everyone is invited if this is not corrected, instead of a top 25, 10, 5 elimanation style I wanted to feature.

Can you please pass this on to the devs, and if anyone else has similar problems with alt events not allowing anyone at all to enter, post about it here,

Thanks

I know this is an ever present issue in Solo Society but did not know for Online Societies too - bummer!

So just an update, I had someone not in my club join up to see what tournament it would put him in and it tried to put him in the alternate event which would be correct. However anyone that is a current member with any points is simply put into main event regardless of points rank.

I have an event next week that is for event winners only. This should be an easy one to see if that works correctly and I'll report back if it does or not in this thread.

So far, looks like the winners only event is working fine which is great. Hope the points issue is sorted soon before my playoffs begin.

HB I know you guts are super busy , but is there any chance we could get some info on this , even if its not been fixed. Im new to this franchise and have "converted" friends to play in my society , so would like to get some feedback on whether we delay or not.

Thanks
