You should still pay as much because there is only going to be ONE winner you should rely on QUALITY over QUANTITY.” Tournament organizer from WAKO made this response “Unfortunately, Women don’t bring in as much money as the men. You wouldn’t pay a receptionist as much as the salesman because the receptionist does not bring in the same amount of money as the salesman.” FFM2 have made the response saying “Just because the women did not make as much money as the man did.
