What if getting suspended online meant an irl banning? You get a reduced sentence for ratting out your co-conspirators. Would the risk there mitigate things at all?

Unless that happens today and your online disciplinary standing already plays into your irl standing, then I dunno.

Why is hard to believe I am looking for the gap on PWPs when:
A) Everyone out performs me at PTQs earning them 1000s of bonus points.
B) Everyone out performs me at GPs earning them money.
C) I don't play half the year (constructed)
D) I haven't been grinding locally. Am I still up? Yes, but the multiplier is 1X.

I'm saying you know what the gap is, or could make an educated guess and just tell us.

Maybe you did grind locally for a period of a few months. I have no idea, rather than speculating you could just scan the history and be like "aha, during this stretch I gained a bunch bc of x y z reason."

I think you overestimate how much magic others play. I played during constructed season but probably went to 2-3 PTQs max, not 5 like limited season.

FNM and weekly magic tournaments add up especially if they're 5 rounders. I'm pretty sure Will is at 0 and Ty said he played in 2 in the last year.

And you top 4ed a GP.

You are exactly where you're suppose to be.

ptq ~ 100 pts (above average 6 wins)

gp ~ 200 pts (mediocre 6 wins)

phu probably played twice as many gps as bing or i did.

i'll repeat again
