So now if you’re junior you might get a few more weekends off than you used to, but you’re going to do a little more reserve as a consequence.

No it has nothing to do with the trippling of the weekend points. The graph was from just before the weekend points got trippled.

Since the first day of the introduction of JSS I’ve had 3 weekends off and 2 of those were because of holidays, the other one I worked every other weekend that month I already made cap during those trips.
