yeah its pretty ridic, 100 per PTQ and 300 per GP in a whole year?

so 10 PTQs and 4 GPs and you have to day 2 all the GPs and play out all the PTQs

eh it's not impossible, but not being able to 0-2 drop PTqs is a complete bitch

Yeah, going into last weekend I had about 400 points from 4 PTQs with 2 top 8s and playing a couple of prereleases. 1000 is going to be hard.

PTs not counting is bullshit too.

i have 1100 from dec 2 to now, not including 1000 pwp bonus. though for some reason the PWP site includes 360 from the PT in this seasonal total. so minus that, i have 800 in about 6 months.

my yearly total is currently 3700, but includes two PTs and a ptq win bonus, so slightly below the 2 bye cut off.

Why do you guys say PWPs from PTs don't count? I didn't read that in the paragraphs from the announcement.

Without the PT or the PTQ bonus, my yearly total is 1225. That's playing most local PTQs and a couple GPs.

Looks like I won't be getting byes to anything any time soon.

its always been that way as far as i remember. it could have changed since they are included in the total, but at the beginning they only counted towards lifetime total so pt participants didn't get an unfair advantage (???) over non pt competitors.

I think it's back when people can grind planewalker points for PT qualifications. Those who do make it has a huge edge over those who don't for the following PT.

I might be different now.

My seasonal is at 1661 and yearly is at 4932. Minus 2000 for the 2 PTQs and it's at 2900. 2300 is doable I guess. Didn't realize I played that much Magic over the past year.

getting to play GPs is huge. since june last year there was Houston, Vegas, OKC, and Dallas that were easy to get to. hopefully they schedule them in a similar manner going forward.
