I don't want it to be thought that I am poo-pooing this tourney. I think it could be run better and be educational for newer players considering a few changes:
A, I think that it would be better for newer players if actual divisions were being used rather than the pretty good-really good model. Education could start right there.
B, I think that it would be more beneficial for newer players to come out and watch the RCO than it would be to participate in this tourney. I would propose a change in weekends - even if it doesn't fall on a special date.
My opinion. And honestly, I don't care if no one agrees or likes it. Welcome to America!
