I would assume it is correct as your position alone is not enough to get the ticket - also have to reach the required VPPs for the month.

It is the top 500 in open league, as long as you have the 20vpps+. did you play the prem league qualifiers?

well something weird is going on for sure as a friend of mine got a PL ticket as well and she finished in 1276th place in OL I understand that they have to take into acount the players who didnt earn the 20VPP but seems like 726 players ahead of her plus the 500 that did have there 20VPP and finished in 500 or better that seems like a stretch no?

A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE OPEN DID NOT HAVE 20 VPP'S
SO THEY WENT DOWN TILL THEY HAD 500 WITH 20 VPP'S
GOOD LUCK ALL

would guess it's the 20 vpps .... played a few opens to take notes and gage the competition. Most were freerolling for cash. No standing and no intention of earning a spot.
My advice is to contact support for confirmation but I would say it's a valid tick. GL and leave the bingo at home lol
r0ck well done

Looking at the top 500 in August Open League over half did not have 20+VPPs from previous month, so likely that a place around 1000 with 20+VPPs is good for a premier spot in September - though you would think more would have made the effort to qualify. Probably due to basic lack of understanding of changes to new leagues.
