My first comp I got 16 people.

Lol, I got 6 which is why I'll probably never try to host one again.

I got 8, I think- but that was around a year ago, the FC Community is likely more prolific now. Doing something a little bit different will always gather attention, as will a good tournament hosting reputation. But obviously, to do that, you need to host some good tournaments.

I didn't get any in my first comp, even though it was open for 2 1/2 months
