This is even worse:

Stores can choose between running a Standard, Modern, or Sealed Preliminary PTQ during each season, regardless of the format the Pro Tour it leads to is.

Guess what format 90% of the tournaments will be?

my thoughts as well. The one big upside is you can hit a lot more ptqs without having to drive all over the frickin state now (of course they are alot less useful)

how many "advanced level" stores are in Houston?

also: am I missing something or are the GP changes just a straight-up improvement?

My first thought:

The sky is actually falling.


After thinking about it a bit more, it's similar to what I said a while ago (Shifting from PTQ's to GP's)

Oh, re-read and they do give invites based on record. Not the worst imo

Limited PTQs require the atore to pay for sealed product as well, right? So wouldnt they always elect to run a Constructed event so they get to keep all of the entrance fees instead of having to use some of the fees to offset the cost of the sealed product?

Expect the line to be "based on our local players demand for more Standard events..."

yeah. standard is a free 25-30$ a head

limited is less profitable at 30-35 entry

limited casually never going to be ptq'd ever again

on the plus side, expect to X-0 every PT draft from now until the end of time. why would anybody practice useless skills?
