As I type this I realize that Merge will undoubtedly have to be the one that changes this and not Lock. If this is beyond your control, Rizen, I totally understand. I just wanted to point out that the structure is currently set up more like a multi table sit and go rather than a multi table tournament.
Merge is the one that changes it and no I'm not directly in control but I talk with the people in charge of such changes every day and have a lot of influence over what goes in. There are definitely some quirky payout things that need to be fixed, aside from this last I knew 6 max payout structures and 9 max were the same, which is clearly flawed.
The biggest thing for me is I need to provide data as to why things should be changed. I'll do some research on what the standard payout %s are across other sites. FWIW I believe the top two-three spots SHOULD pay significantly higher in a MTT than the rest, but it does look really weird to me that the payout jump from 3rd-2nd is the same as 2nd-1st.
