The CC didn't dictate how raffle ticket prizes were assigned before, I see no reason why they *have* to now. Just make ticket assignments part of the T.D. duties upon entering the results. Problem solved.
Personally I have no problem with all but one of them going to a random participant, just that the TD should be able to choose how the guaranteed ticket will go. Why should TDs who previously reserved a ticket for players who would probably most need the stuff being given away be forced to give a ticket to someone who probably has less need for it?
Like I said, though, don't make it a choice when the results are entered, make it a choice when the tournament is created, so that everyone knows going in. If a TD really thinks a player is tanking to get a ticket, that can be handled separately, probably within the group.
