Remove tournament points then most players won't be so unhappy with unfair competition.
I do not remember the tournament ever not having a ranking point system and if anything, well, to will 1000 points when top scores are around 100k compared to 2 million today, the value of ranking points is a small contributor to score.
So it's the ranking point prizes you want to remove from tournaments? They are so small now that they're fairly meaningless. I can't imagine too many people are bothered about them or notice them.
Nice on the 200k tournament rewards...I am one of the few at least
Finally breached the 200K barrier last week

The comment about unfair competition are related to the fact that one person has is ridiculously more easy in the tournaments than the other.
It's like where you give in an FA some guild an unfair advantage by reducing there production times by half (yes this happened before once)
But if you give the half production time bonus to lets say every fellowship that not made it into the top 25 last time, how do you think they would feel with there large specialized emptied cities?
Now imagine you working your ass of in the tournaments for a good result, and then have another fellowship member smiling about how easy it was to surpass you, with a fraction of the effort, because he has his/her city less developed than you have. should he not work at least about just as hard as you did? why does your effort not be awarded as much as his/her effort?
That and there is also the issue of progress == regress.
It's also not uncommon for a player to go out with a bang, if an unknown player is topping the charts it's often because that player decided to quit the game.
