I think Major should definitely stay at the top. It's the same term that Professional Golf and Tennis use. In Tennis, winning the 4 majors is called a Grand Slam; I could definitely see the system looking confusing to a new player who sees the tennis analogy, Grand Slam tournaments, and Major tournaments, all in the same post.

I agree Standard is confusing since it's a game type. I would go Major/Premier/Minor or General (I know that's a CC word too)

How about Major, Marquee, and Regular?
