8 team round robin adv should be the go to imo. Main has been losing a lot of it’s integrity throughout the past seasons, and because of that, it’s been becoming increasingly easy to just climb the ranks whether you are ready for it or not. it also makes it more rewarding when you do end up finally getting up to the next div, and makes you work harder to keep climbing like that. adv, being the division below invite, should serve as an “intro to invite” kind of thing imo, getting players ready for when they may end up making their eventual invite debut.
Also, hearing that there were multiple teams that just went to the admins and got moved up after they received their placements its very concerning. If it’s going to be like that, bring back adv quals, or bring back chal. One team getting moved up? maybe. BOTH teams? no way, that should not be happening.
