Is A Parkour That Requires 100c To Buy A Ticket Considered a "scam"?

So tell me folks,
Mods, admins, and fellow CC comerades,
As per what the rules and guidelines say:
"Games of skill such as creative building contests using foundation blocks, or parkour races may be allowed, but player complaints or reports of fake contests or undelivered prizes could lead to a permanent ban from the game for the organizers of these events. Moderators or admins may choose to shut these events down at their discretion if they determine the event to be malicious. We would encourage players not to join such contests unless they know the organizers well and trust them. You join at your own risk. Lost entry fees will not be returned. "

Doesn't parkour go under the catergory "GAME OF SKILL"?
Is It A Scam, Is It Not?
Why Does Everyone Say That A Parkour That Needs C to Enter Is A Scam?
I Object.
In My Opinion, This Isn't A Scam.

Assassinations has WON this parkour and has been the FIRST one so far to win it,
so it has been proven to be a real parkour.

Please Deside What the correct action that has to be taken.

Realm: The E-Lited Race.

Please take FULL ACTION if you decide that what i am practicing is a scam.
Please Ban Me If You Must.

    Parkour is something that I would consider a skill, and so do the staff, as it clearly states that games of skills... parkour races may be allowed. Because parkour isn't really a game of chance like pick the block, then I would assume it's fine.

    Pay-to-play parkour is the reason the rules were implemented. If it costs 100c, with unlimited lives, I think that is fine. BUT if it is limited lives and pay-to-play, it's considered a scam, because not everyone is the same skill level, devices lag, people of a younger age group/audience.. etc.. there are many reasons it could be unfair, and considered a "scam".

    Just make it pay-to-play, and unlimited lives to give all those people who paid a REAL and fair chance.

    That's my take on this topic, personally.

    I agree with limited. Also fix up those tickets into stacks of two or use warp food as the door eats up atleast 2 tickets to enter

    owh owkies! thx for the opinions!
    EDIT: but that doesnt fix the NOOBS opinion on it as a scam though. CC needs to be more clear as nobody would really read the rules and guidelines clearly.

    The staff can make the guidelines more clear than necessary, but you'll still have people who refuse to believe it. They expect a prize, for free. They expect everything for nothing. What can we do? If players can't see through that mundane, then we'll never expect them to. Just keep informing and informing.

    As long as the parkour is possible to complete, then it's okay. There have been cases in the past where parkours were could only be finished by using glitches, and I think that's where the problems came in.

    Just make it a fair parkour and there shouldn't be any problems :)
    (Personally I don't like parkours that charge, whether they give a prize or not, parkour is for enjoyment. But as far as breaking rules go, you should be in the clear.)

    As of now, many people have been doing paid parkours as well. As this is not a scam anymore and I clearly know the
    Rules and what to do and not to do, pls close :)
