With mid-level vendors getting squeezed by the new PTQQ structure and the future of judge compensation uncertain, one group is clearly making out, and that is the LGS. It's virtually assured that the LGS will benefit greatly from the new organization of the PTQ system because stores that were too small to hold a PTQ might be large enough to hold a PTQQ. This means more butts in their seats, more eyeballs on their singles cases and more people visiting a store they may have never been to before and may want to come back to. This is all good stuff.
The LGS has one more reason to be happy this week with an announcement of changes to the GPT structure.
The Cliff's notes are as follows.
- Stores can run a GPT for any GP in the World.
- Stores can run a GPT for the same GP they already ran a GPT for if they wait a month.
This is more great news for the LGS.
"Almost any format" in the announcement clearly means "Not 2HG, so stop asking, Jason"
