Changes in StarCityGames tournaments

Changes in Open Series tournaments organized by StarCityGames enter into force on December, 13. From now on, SCG Open is going to be a two-day event, held in one format. The significant change is that, the main event only will be streamed. In other words, we are loosing the weekly Legacy coverage, which many players enjoyed.

On Sunday, players may participate in 2 Premier Invitational Qualifiers, which will be held in other format than the main event was. However, IQ prize pool is only 5000 USD. In addition to fact that 14 out of the first 19 Opens of 2015 are Standard, 3 are Legacy, and 2 are Modern it is terrible news for Legacy players, which used to have more events with considerable prize structure. To sum up, the rank of Legacy events drastically fall. 

What does it mean to us? Simply put, we may face lesser demand on Legacy cards if there will not be any action taken to keep this format alive.
