Put simply, that the Games have turned into a required-video qualifier means that everything has been corrupted, there is no pretense any longer. That video talking about waiting to take on all comers is a lie, the video gauntlet means that CFHQ can screen out any "non-community" people that threaten the crown...with no witnesses.
It's as simple as taking away a couple of reps from a person. Who's going to do extra reps when they don't feel they have to? The favorites, the big names, will get a free pass, and will only really have to shine at the big game. On top of that, what other sport gives past champs free tickets to the finals?

Um...right, sure, got it. That's exactly what I get out of his posts and the linked video above.
