Just researching a bit on how the new upgrade function is working, and it has less choice than the old system.
No more upgrading within a size! Really why, what about upgrading views or to presidentials? All that seems gone now.
Funny thing is, if there are multiple units types available for upgrade (ok I know that might be a big if, but humor me), like a 2 BR and 2 BR Pres. The first few auto upgrades will go to presumably the VIP Plat, and what ever else they added to prioritize. Funny thing is once the 2 BR deluxe are all gone, then the people a bit farther down the upgrade list might actually get the better upgrades.
One of those unintended consequences. Shrew up the people who have earned the highest status with their cold hard cash.
I think this auto upgrade, given the way it is looking, is going to end up NOT rewarding the VIP Plats who book early. But honestly who really know what the sweet spot might be. Might be just as easy to buy a lottery ticket, as your odds of getting that primo upgrade are slim.
