Quoted from LOTR_breath:
I love Herb style. And when you really think about it, the PAPA format that is going away was just another form of Herb style. You still bought tickets, you still tried as many times as you wanted, you still could qualify on one entry or spend several hundred dollars trying to qualify. You just had to do five different games at a time.
People keep missing the big difference with the 5 ticket system which created a sense of urgency to do well on 5 games on a single ticket.
