In the case of Wizards' approach, and less so SCG, it's not just a question of numbers of events, but of numbers of events people can watch online. There've been a lot of modern GPs in the last few months but only twitch stream coverage of a small number

It's a real shame to lose the top level modern coverage- I enjoyed even this last modern PT with the mono-grey top 8 since it's cool to see modern decks in the hands of the best players. It would have been nice to hear something in this announcement about overall live coverage of modern GPs to get an idea of the exposure pro level modern will get. As a relative newcomer to modern, it might have a short term positive effect of bringing down the cost of building modern decks, but if that is ultimately down to reduced exposure and reduced popularity of the format then longer term that's a problem

Reminds me of this:
