    I think the Finals will need to do the following changes.

    1. It needs to award more world ranking points than PSS like All England. If the Finals award the same points as OG/WC, then the players will take the event seriously. I think there is no harm to having two events per year having such high status since one is held in July/August while the other is held in mid December, which are sufficiently far apart.

    2. Location and weather of the host is important. Minimum flight time and jet lag for top players and fair weather condition are all important consideration if the host wishes to attract the best and wish them to perform the best. (For example, having a Masters Finals in Rio would not be attractive; LD needs to take a flight of 27 hours to get there, plus jet lag.)

    3. No other major events should occur within 4 weeks before or after the Finals. It can be held in mid December or mid January. Exactly 6 months between Finals and WC/OG would be good.
