Actually, An Tir has a fairly wide participation record for Crown. I
don't think Liam was implying that the standards were higher for the
skill of the entrants but that everyone has an understanding that this
is a big deal tournament where pageantry is important. It's not that
you only enter when you are a serious contender, but that you have a
respect for the atmosphere that event is trying to create.
That said, there is a wide range in expectations for the entrants at
Crown tournaments. Ealdormere for example regularly runs lists of a
mere 12 or so entrants, all of whom only enter when they seriously
think they might win and are ready and willing to step up to the
challenge of reigning while in An Tir it's considered okay to enter
when you only have a snowball's chance in hell just for the experience
of fighting the best when they're bringing their A game, though if
hell did freeze over you'd be willing to step up to the challenge of
ruling of course.
