If you looked closely you would've noticed that out of the 4 people that had 27 points in standard, not a single one top8ed.

The fact that the big tournaments are always both constructed and limited play, is what separates the best from the good.

All it really does is demand that people test even more for the event which i guess some people like, id rather just focus on one format.

if you focus on being well fluent in one area, are you considered an expert, or are you considered a professional?

this is the mtg pro tour, keep in mind.

I would say your at the pro tour so you need to be both. I would consider an expert someone who has a maserful grasp of a format and alot of experience. Fir example Stepehen Mendian (sorry for spelling) in vintage would be an expert.

And a pro some one who is capebale to playing magic to the highest level. eg. LSV, PV

Before if you really put the time into the format and had the skills you stood a chance. Now you can do that in std or limited and can still fail based on your performance in another. It requires a broader range of skills, so you need to have more knowledge than before.

I would agree with that not a fan of standard but you kinda feel these kids who spend there life testing standard and nothing else deserve there time in the spot light, sad as they maybe.

Standard is pretty much garbage right now and some dude playing Jund or Vampires to a decent record does not impress me.

Some dude playing some crazy ass Open the Vaults deck to an "ok" record then drafting Zendikar block (a terrific draft block) to an overall top 8 record impresses me.

I think the split format is the best thing to ever happen to the game.
