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.
