Three things.
1) Why are there no mentions of this on the official HoN Forum?
2) How do you reward people with only 100 coins? The minimum package is 420. (Or 500 and 800 for that matter if the 3 packages are 420, 1575 and 2415)
3) You messed up your links. :p

there is a post on the hon forums under the competitive section.  It was created by on of the S2 staff members. 

I fixed the link, fail cutting and pasting ><

We wanted to at least give something to the 3rd / 4th, though others have mentioned that 100 gold coins isn't enough.  We will probably just distribute to 1st/2nd.
