Fixing Tournaments

In the rule Tournament:
Amend the text that reads

The tournament automatically ends once time advances, and the noble who advances time should reflect the tournament as “Closed”. At any time, any noble may resolve a “Closed” tournament and then change the status of the tournament to be “Resolved”.

to read

The tournament automatically ends after at least 24 hours once time advances, and the noble who advances time should reflect the tournament as “Closed”. Once a Tournament is closed, no new nobles may join the tournament, but any noble who has pledged at least 1 knight may pledge more knights up to (and including) the maximum number of knights pledged by any other noble for the given tournament. 24 hours after a tournament has been closed, any noble may resolve a “Closed” tournament and then change the status of the tournament to be “Resolved”.

Amend the text that reads:

The noble hosting the tournament gains N*5 dignity and 2 knights (The top two winning knight are offered a place in the noble’s army).

to read:

The noble hosting the tournament gains N*5 dignity and 2 knights (The top two winning knight are offered a place in the noble’s army) and may increase the influence of any one of their buildings.

Append to the end of the “Sponsoring a noble” paragraph the following:

Sponsorships may only be gained before the tournament is “Closed”, and only last for the given tournament. All sponsorship must be recorded in the appropriate location in the wiki.

As tournament passed despite a significant amount of uneasiness, I’m proposing these changes to try and address the concerns:
1) There are now two stages for adding knights, to reduce the benefit of people adding knights later on.
2) Building influence is added to the list of perks gained by the hosting noble to make this more worthwhile for them.
3) I added some clauses to the sponsorship part to make sure this wouldn’t be broken.

Not a proposal but the ideas are good
