    I loved the (Now Gone) Papa ticket format as it better sorted out the players and made Papa unique. That charm is now gone thus making Papa just another run of the mill event.

    Classics only taking 4 games of 16 has me scratching my head. Why increase the number of games and require 1/4th of them to qualify? Should be 1/2 like all the other divisions of play. Also with the change to Pump N Dump just have 1 Classics Event with qualifying Thursday-Friday and hold playoff / finals on Saturday Afternoon. Gives players more time to qualify, can enlarge the required games to play to 8 of 16, allow people to qualify in the main divisions instead of spending all day qualifying in a Daily Classics event due to the lines of the past. A "B" Classics division could be added since you have more machines in the division to use.

    MGC is way to crowded and I'm very surprised the Fire Marshall hasn't shut it down to excessive crowds and narrow walk paths. Can't even play a game of pinball without a passer by rubbing you or pushing you against the machine to get by. Vendor tents outside, if rains is a total mess for all.

    Would love to attend MGC of old since the tourney play on Friday was fun. Also like to visit Tom's place one of these years as I love to play the older games.

    Quoted from EvanBingham:

    Would it be more fun if I complained about Stern NIB prices, J-pop, or ghosting inserts?

    Feedback from Papa 2017 will be interesting. Especially Classics. I'll be watching from afar as my Papa attendance string is cut.
