i hate to keep beating a dead horse, but somehow some way, looking at the tourney schedule for bg, seeing that hots are now 50% of the total weeks tourneys, the empty scheduling, and the importance that hot tourneys are and will continue to become, it has to make sense to more than just me to improve league stats to at least make them a more popular format.
and that would be 2223 rated. at least try it for a month and see if the player participation increases, and it is not too much of a headache for the SFTD's. it certainly cant hurt. having been here since almost day one, 2223 rated was always the most popular format.
elite has always been open to new ideas for improving participation, why not at least try it?
