first of all, i have to say that i never registered in eds, and so, i dont know really well how it is working. But i would like to say something with my TD eyes...
As i see, the eds system created a parallel system with regular tourneys. In first times, the goal of eds, as i understood, was to keep great players who want to play higher points match. I heard that eds was for few good of them, and will not take all of our players in it, because of the cost and the interest for this.
But, as i see today, is that eliters makes big efforts to increase the number of players in eds. We have a goal of 60 players we want in (!) and as a TD, we have to make publicity for this.
As a TD, i see that a lot of players dont play anymore in my tourneys, as the play in eds. In the first days of eds periods, i have to cancel many of them, because i have no players in it.
I would like to know what is the priority of eliters about that. Is that eds the priority? Is now the regular tourneys only a way to recruit players and to take them in eds after?
