That's true, but it fails to mention that choice has been reduced.

That may be true now (for WPX), but we'll never know whether it would 
continue because, from now on, single-ops who want to be competitive 
will have no option but to use spots from other operators - especially 
if they're LP or QRP.

My  enjoyment is increased when I see how I did compared to others in 
the same category.

> We have gone from two single op categories to one. This will increase competition,

Really? - where's the logic or the evidence for that?
