Sorry if you got offended, I didn't attack you anyway though. You're the one attacking a simple monthly tournament because you can't win anything.
There is no mistake in making a tournament, everything is awesome about those tournaments, even the rules are more casual now, with all weapons & skills being allowed. There is nothing anyone could do to make a tournament made for everyone convenient enough for those who want to win something without even trying, period.
No one is talking about winning without trying. If it is a tournament, that is kinda impossible to happen anyway.
The thing that has to be done is to take out the top teams from their comfortable zone otherwise they will keep farming wins, as you say with "no effort", since the competition is low. Or just find a way to attract players who are more skilled than those who already play in the tournaments.
I am pretty sure most ppl who signs in are just wannabees rather than skilled players so they are easily outplayed by the top teams every time.
