The idea behind Elite Cups is that they are challenging, yet achievable for both casual and hardcore players. They should also encourage players to race in Elite Countries to get a better indication of their horses’racing performance against similar pedigree horses.
As a result of this analysis, we have concluded that the current qualifying prize money requirement for entry into Elite Cups is not sufficient. To resolve this issue we have raised the qualifying prize money requirement from $5 million to $60 million. This change to qualifying will provide the scaling level of challenge that was intended in the Elite Countries and represent an appropriate reward for racing effort.
