As with others, I don't intend to shoot the messenger here Evan and fully appreciate you delivering this information to us. But this message from OP seems like it's missing the point - we're not (currently!) worried about the Regional structure, but the Store Championship structure, and our complaints are around the structure for the SCs. "Wait until we tell you about the Regionals!" can only really be considered an answer to "we have problems with the SCs structure" if it's taken as a threat... I obviously presume that's not the case, but it would frankly be weird if the regionals article addressed specific issues the community has with the SCs, so without further word from them I can only presume the response from OP is essentially "we're not changing it, now wait until the next article that moves onto a separate issue", which is pretty unsatisfactory for the people who are having their organised play experience actively diminished by the new SC structure rules.
I believe the reason behind waiting for the Regionals article is that, at that point, everyone will be able to see and examine the full Organized Play season—from Store Championships through to premier-level tournaments like Worlds. This broader perspective could influence on how you then look at the Store Championships level of OP. Unfortunately, I can't really say much more about it without descending into meaningless conjecture; since I don't work in Organized Play, I haven't seen this upcoming article, and I don't know what it will convey.
I definitely understand where you and others are coming from with this—after all, Store Championships are the only level of "official" tournament that I'm allowed to compete in. As I mentioned above, if you have any comments or concerns you want to express before the Regionals article, you can take advantage of the email@example.com email.
Hopefully that answers some of your questions. Sorry I don't have more information!
