Edit: Math is easy, reading is hard.

@mike-noble from my own admission of "play as much as possible" your analysis is correct (though I hope I don't get pummeled that much). I guess I just can't rationalize paying $20 to potentially play a single round.

EDIT:
One nit-picking detail about your model, there are only five vintage trials Thursday not seven. So it's $100 for 5-10 rounds (assuming it's impossible to get to round 3 and still register for every event).
Last year had Four 5-round Swiss events, and you could easily register and play in two to their entirety for $60.

@tittliewinks22 I did all that math and spreadsheet creation and didn’t even bother to look at the trial formats. Typical idiot me.

Edit: Now that I can properly read, the new trials setup might be due to space or staffing concerns with having a third format of players at the event, and one that is larger worldwide than the other two. Single elimination frees up seats and judges.

Most people dropped the swiss ones anyone because they were primarily interested in signing up for the next one and earning a bye.

So people are paying $10 less for what they were already doing. Neat.

Makes sense, thanks for the clarification.

Vintage 5k was dropped last year, and this year is there side events/Play All Weekend? It appears the side events will be trials on Thursday, and then only draft and Commander...

edit: Ahh, there is a note to check back for complete side event schedule.

Update:

We can confirm that, yes! We won’t be making any changes in Vintage at that time due to the proximity of Eternal Weekend.
