This change will allow for every Sunday match to be played in its entirety on camera while maintaining a reasonable length to the Top 8 day. No longer will an amazing sequence of plays in a quarterfinal be missed because it happened on the back table. The live coverage will also be able to delve deeper into each matchup, examining player strategies and sideboard choices in much more detail.

I kind of like this change. It's really to the advantage of a control deck to get four sideboarded games against aggro anyways. Since decks are basically made to play 2 of 3 it seems like it makes more sense this way, and it actually works a lot better from a coverage perspective. The only way it will suck is if a ton more matches are decided by mana problems, which is I assume the reason they instituted this change in the first place.

That's awesome that they are going to show all the top 8 matches on the stream now. Definitely in favor of this change.

For that SCG player championship seems like it would end up being mostly just the same usual grinders over and over

Since when did GP's give PT invites to T8 players on 1200+ GP's?
Also apparently X-2 players in 1200+ GP's also get invites?
