So I played in my first regional championship this year, and a friend of mine was going to go to Wisconsin to play in his... 3 hours away. The Wisconsin championship got over a 3 AM!. I know that regionals is supposed to be a bigger and better group of players, but I think it really pushes more casual players away who may be more apt to play in a state championship.
What do you think? I think state championship and then nationals might be better and encourage more players to play.
