From the minutes:
- The limit for "A" flags switches from 15% above your current class to 20%.
- For a major to count as a classifier: 3 GMs finishing at 90% or higher in a division, plus at least 50 participants in the division (sorry, revo/L10/CO). (Currently it's just 3 GMs per division.)
- Match bumps going automatic: finish 95%+ at Nationals = bump to GM, finish 5%+ above current class in a L2+ = bump to next class (subject to 3 GMs at 90%+ in the division and 50+ in the division).
- Biannual review of classifier HHFs because, "in some cases there were no 100% scores, in others, there were 100% scores deep into the classes." I'm curious what the outliers are. I need to optimize my grandbagging so I can practice less. I also wonder how the rollout of new HHF would impact existing classifications--will they adjust retroactively?
BOD adopted the changes, but I didn't see a time line for implementation. I don't know if it depends on any IT stuff, and I assume the HHF review means a committee.
Looks like they talked about reshooting classifiers with an eye toward limiting it to one reshoot, but pushed discussion to the Feb meeting.
