Default Premier Play Changes

2013-2014 Premier Play Changes/Outline

Summary of changes:
 


However, there was a massive uproar on twitter, because of a major issue that many pro players pointed out:

If you're not yet Silver and have just Top 4ed a Grand Prix (qualifying you for the next Pro Tour), do you concede so you avoid making Silver right then?

By doing so, you can try to "save" your Silver Pro Tour invite for the following Pro Tour, which you aren't qualified for yet.





so........

I don't know why they would get rid of those when they were having like 800 people entering. I thought WotC liked money.

2. Sponsor's Exemptions and Silver and Gold MTGO PTQs eliminated.

Sponsor's Exemptions stop with PT Theros, while the MTGO PTQs stop with PT Born of the Gods.


I read that as no more sliver and gold modo ptqs starting with PT Gods.

Yeah, I'm pretty out of the loop, I wasn't aware that Silver and Gold PTQs were a thing. How are (were) they different.

I didn't know there were multiple types of PTQs on MODO

If I had to guess I would assume they are PTQs on MODO which are only open to a person with the correct Pro level.

60+ people instead of 800. The competition is a little tougher, but it's better than grinding through 10 rounds before the top 8.
