Is that about right? Not in terms of points, of in terms of prestige and/or level of difficulty?
Of course, this varies by tournament. Sydney, a Tier II usually has a tougher field than Toray Pan Pacific, a Tier I. I just mean 'on average'.
Wow, thats an awesome way to think about it! I think generally you got it on the ball (besides what you already mentioned about there being stronger Teir 2's and weaker Tier 1's). The only think is that I am not sure there is really much of a difference b/t a Teir 4 and a Tier 5. The lower Tiers sorta mush together. Also, there is just such a drop off after Tier 2 in terms of quality....with a few exceptions like Hasselt.
