I finally talked to another buddy of mine who was actually on and paying attention to the conference call where they discussed the new things being put into effect.
1) Subs and Reserves are going to be treated like other numbers, like GPGs and PRPs. They count, but not emphasized very much at all. It’s like the old UPT or IPT (units/items per transaction) numbers, they used to be important while now they’re not even talked about at all.
2) The ever dreaded “1st and Final” Write up is going to be disposed of. The DM was apparently very enthusiastic about this one in saying that it would make life in general a lot easier and less stressful. As the ASM I was talking to put it… “So we can just get fired the first time with no warning?”
There were some other minor things, but nothing too important that I can remember. Also, these are thing that are GOING to be implemented, but still a ways off.
