hey, i have never gone to a GP before but plan on attending GP Vancouver (local). I want to get some byes and wondering how easy it will be off seasonal points.
I go to FNMs and pre-releases and stuff but not that much so i dont think ill get at least 300 points off that.
At GPs they have side events the day before and im wondering if they have the X3 multiplier. Also when do they look at your points and award byes? Is it when you register?
I was thinking of just going down on Friday and grinding out a bunch of events to hopefully get some points to get byes.
If anyone could tell me if this could work it would be nice.
thnx.

There's not really any chance to grind out 300 points with the x3 multiplier, however they will have "Grinders" which earn the winner 3 byes. As far as I know, your Byes are determined when you register.

The Grinders have a x3 multiplier, but I don't know about the other side events which are smaller.


Oh also, I ...believe........that the byes are counted from the previous season, not the current one(today is the last day of the season).

The Seasonal Points from previous season bring the benefit for the current season.

Your "current" seasonal points bring the benefits for the upcoming seasons GPs.

it also said that you can use the current season at the time for the benefits.

Byes are counted from current or last season, whichever is higher. The cutoff time is the ratings update before the GP (Wednesday).

By far the easiest way to get byes is to win a GPT. In Canada GPTs usually have like 15 people.
