Very interesting. This will force a complete revamp of the point system. Very cool though!
High plat will actually mean something then!
Not really, the points will work the same, the difference is that all divisions of each league will have the same offset, so you can directly compare points between players in different divisions. Right now there are several different tiers of divisions within each of the leagues(except master and gm), so the only way to know you're close to promotion is if you start hitting mostly higher league players on ladder.

Right now there are several different tiers of divisions within each of the leagues(except master and gm), so the only way to know you're close to promotion is if you start hitting mostly higher league players on ladder.
Also in master IIRC, if tiers weren't in masters than this won't help YKS.

The point system can't stay the same. Currently just playing lots of games will put you high in your division, because winning always gives more points than losing (with the exception of the 1.5 bugs). The way points are awarded will have to be changed as to filter the good players from the frequent players.

Playing lots of games will put you high in your division, but it's not because winning gives more points than losing. After you spend all your bonus pool and get your points where your MMR says they should be, you'll get the same number of points from winning as you lose from defeat. The reason mass games will get you high in the division is because most people only play a handful of games each season, and this will not change with the new system.
