As a business decision I am sure they have something in the works, it may be just different to what has been offered in the past, but to have nothing at all would put them behind pretty much every other chain who does have some sort of status match, or challenge.

Exactly, although GP has a tendency to inform the blogs first.
But I feel some communication about next years rules (not specifically the rules for challenges) is long overdue. It's a bit pathetic in my opinion that we still need to speculate about the fate of things like MER and the limiting of P+C availability this late in the year.

Obviously you are missing something... The only official statement Hyatt have made, as per the same announcement EVERY year for the past 3-4 years, is the program will end on 10/31

Then, usually within days, or in the case of a few years ago, a week, a new challenge was announced.

So, as per previous, until they state there will be no status matching, no challenge of any sort it is all speculation.

From what I have heard, and this is not pure speculation, there will be something, but perhaps not like what we have become accustomed to.

I believe I read in an earlier post that once you complete the challenge Hyatt will reward you with an additional 4 DSU for a total of 8 DSU. As i just completed the challenge I only have 4 months before my DSU expire. Please correct me if I am wrong.

You're wrong.

You get the next four DSUs at the beginning of March, like every other Diamond (assuming Hyatt doesn't change that too)

I believe it was the Points Guy who made that mistake. Too busy pimping credit cards to fact check...

As mentioned, you get 4 more DSUs like everybody else if you are still Diamond in February 2015.

Phew! Registered on 10/28 and very glad I did. I'll have to mattress run about 4 nights by the end of the year to get Diamond, but I'll do it.

NOT by the end of the year! Exactly 60 days after you registered, which I believe is December 27th.
