Other Metas Leader
The OM Circuit was significantly larger than any other circuit, because we had formats (AG/ZU) that demanded it. That is no longer the case. The OM Circuit now focuses on the three biggest OMs. These three formats are consistently run throughout the year and as a result, are the best of three formats in the Championship. That is another point; a best of five in the championship was a special case I requested for the circuit last year as the standard is best of three. With the removal of two seasonals - making our seasonals match the Championship, and two ladder tournaments - which was unfair as it favored particular formats, the 2020 OM Circuit is much more balanced than it was last year.What was OM leadership thinking when they made this years OM Circuit????
Like seriously, what’s the point in having STABmons and NFE in OMGS and have them count for Circuit points if they aren’t featured anywhere in the rest of the Circuit? They should at the very least be metagames in the finals with a Best of 5, if not have separate tours that count for circuit points as well. STABmons Seasonals were originally in the Circuit plans, and last I had checked they still were. What changed that they were removed?
2019’s circuit finals were made a Bo5 due to the large amount of users complaining about BH being too uncompetitive for a Bo3 (albeit I was not one of these users). This was a change most players were happy with, so why is it that the Circuit finals were changed back to a Bo3 this year?
The decisions made by leadership for the Circuit this year were very poor, in my opinion. Not only is the Circuit just inconsistent, it greatly discourages new players from trying for the trophy, and I know I won’t even think about participating in its current state.
Please consider changing this current Circuit setup.
