I'm assuming it's pretty clear that the staff is happy with the current divisional/advancement structure, having only MAIN be the real goal for the other two divisions and then of course the chance to play in relegation matches if you're top two in MAIN. Not a lot to compete for anymore, lack of advancement for these teams. Still happy CEVO is pioneering a seasonal structure that involves teams needing to have a decent map pool rather than grinding one map every week, and forgetting that map next week... GL to everyone playing this season.

So, you stated in Season 9 that all playoff IM teams will be moved up to Season 10 Main. Umm, we're still waiting on the moveup I assume? "- moveups: all Season 9 Intermediate Playoff teams will be invited to the Season 10 Main Division"

Do you guys recommend to do the free division for our first CEVO season (even tho we have some experience) or we should go straight to the amateur division ? basically, I'm just wondering if there is a big gap of skills between the free and amateur division :)
