At that time, it might also be a good idea to update WAI champs to only accept players with 50k Whozits, not those with 5k (the division was created before the 50k badge and players there are at a significant points disadvantage).

Agreed. When the champs division was added in WAI, I don't think the 50K badge had been added yet so it made the journey to 50K much tougher. I think it's a good compromise.

Would you also please consider a champs division for the Daily Game? The "Daily Game Winner" badge was actually one of the hardest daily-set-winner badges to earn (for me, anyhow), after the "Who Am I?" equivalent. I realize there's no monthly badge (although that might be nice, too), but it just sort of seems unbalanced not to have a champs division, in principle, if other games do.

There are already champ divisions. Do you notice how 11 and 12 divisions always kick butt! wink

Will you also be disbanding the MM sets 'reserved' for the newbies and casual players, ie 6-15? The rest of us who struggle just as much as they, are at a significant points disadvantage. They can win the monthly in their first or second month. Some of us have tried for nearly 2 years with scores that are better than theirs, but earn half the points. Levelling the playing field would be nice. They can 'pay their dues' the way the rest of us do. Let everyone play in ALL the sets, other than the 'champs'.

Just wanted to say that I support the movement to separate people who have won the Mastery badge (50000) from those who have just won the Monthly badge, for all daily games. When is this likely to be implemented?

Yes, I was kinda hoping that it would have been in place to start the month, but it wasn't. So another month of hammering away while the newbies and casuals fast-track to the monthly badge in the 'easy' sets. Time for a change, please!
