I am interested in learning what is to be done with the current ranking system. With the new launch, will everything be reset?
We currently have no plans to reset the ranks. I think we'll leave them as they are through the re-release, which I've been calling the "v2 beta." Maybe we'll work something else out for the "v2 final" launch and eventual marketing campaign, but not yet.
And what of those who have already gone through the trouble to get qualified for the fabled pro-tour? Will we be able to retain these qualifications?
I'm not really familiar with the pro-tour, but I came on late. Let me find out more about this. I wouldn't keep your hopes up, though, there probably won't be a pro-tour in the same way that was promised.
And finally, is there something to be done about the Atrocious "Pro-Point" system?
Hm, I'm also not familiar with this. What was the pro-point system meant for, and what are it's issues?
