The problem with defining this format by what is "fun" is that everyone seems to define fun as what they don't lose to. If you keep losing to easily answered cards, that means improve you should improve your deck. If you don't want to improve your deck, then you should come to peace with the idea that you are going to lose because you chose to not interact with better strategies.
Why do you supposed they stuck to 1200 for the turnout requirement for more invites? I would still think top 8ing a GP of 1000+ is still pretty much a monumental feat. Perhaps they feel the cost of tickets for 8 instead of 4 would be offset by the larger number of people.

Dohoho! I see what you did there. No, this feels more like them completing the promo cycle of titans. The fall promo could be anything, but will probably be modern legal if I had to put my money anywhere.
GP Oakland is M14 limited and the other two I can easily travel to are Modern (SD/Portland). That sucks.
A Pro Tour in Dublin is nice though. Looks like I'll be going all out that PTQ season. Would love to take a trip back home.

Foreigning out SI, currently 33/75. The only thing better than a T1 kill is doing it with cards no one has ever heard of and/or can't read. If anyone has any of the usual pieces, PM me. I'm willing to buy/trade.
