And let's not forget Denmark and Sweden drawing 2-2 at Euro 2004 to knock Italy out!

RE: Eternal Weekend Europe prize support
The term "rip-off" wasn't probably a good choice, but a quick comparison shows that the total amount awarded this year for top 32 was raised by 10k BoM Points.
My concern though was more about what it might be for the future of the event if that choice gets negative feedback and not about the actual amount of prizes.
Eternal Weekend Europe prize support
Prizes for the event were announced by Bazaar of Moxen and I saw that first gets the choice between some of their tickets OR the painting alone.
I don't think @IronChef could comment on this, but my guess would be that WotC does not make TO pay for the actual paintings. Even if the item might be worth a lot on the secondary market, wouldn't be quite the rip-off to award something you get for free as the sole top prize of your event?
In the end I'm going there mostly for the chance of playing some Vintage, but I feared something like this might not be good advertising for the future of the event.
