Proton plays tournaments they can win. Which is smart but it inflates their points…
Their points are also inflated due to MPT and Ressy getting double DQ’d at the Dual.
Neither CE or Proton should be bumped to Major and you also do not get bumped to Major. That’s not how it works. You’re allowed to play AA as many years as you want but must adjust your MWL and Major list points
They will not bump a team from AA TO MAJOR due to budget differentials.
