Much of the success of the Global was requiring B-tiers. We wanted experienced TDs this first time and got them so we could count on good score uploading and well run events otherwise. There were enough behind the scenes challenges as it was with this new format even with experienced TDs.
Sorry Sammy, if few pros show up they don't necessarily deserve anything more than the ams who show up do they? No one's saying the TDs should get to "keep" sponsor money if sponsors expected it to be paid to pros. But those kind of restrictions are few and far between. Sponsors care about eyeballs and it really doesn't matter who provides them - players, staff and spectators.
Rater of the tossed arc.
