The number of Professional Points awarded to the top finishers at Grand Prix are changing. These points will now be awarded based upon the number of match points earned.
These changes are retroactive to the first Grand Prix of the 2014/15 season which are Grand Prix Utrecht and Grand Prix Protland, both taking place August 9-10, 2014. These changes will be reflected in the Player of the Year race starting next week. The full announcement can be found here.
The response from the professional community has been positive:

@HeleneBergeot good change, thanks! (I have no finishes to retroactively apply this to, but here's hoping it matters in the future.)— Pat Cox (@wildestnacatl) October 31, 2014
