I went looking for confirmation on that, but couldn't find anything.
I did find this, regarding Grandmaster's.
Q. What does eligible mean?
A. To be eligible, your unused bonus pool must be less than 180.
Q. Can I be removed from the top 200?
A. Yes. If your unused bonus pool exceeds 270, you will be removed from the Grandmaster League.
Q. Is there a way to see who is in the Grandmaster League?
A. Yes. Click on the in-game ladder icon, and then click "Grandmaster" to see the current season rankings.
Q. How active do I need to be to stay in the Grandmaster League?
A. Your unused bonus pool must remain under 270. This means you can't get three weeks behind. This is equivalent to roughly 45 games.
Looks like I'm not eligible. Just another reason to not play. First I don't play because I don't want to see my losses. And now I realize that I'm not eligible to be a Grandmaster!!! I thought Blizzard was making this more player friendly. What incentive do I have to play now?!?!?

Reason: I joke.
It’s an exciting time in StarCraft II history. The first ever season is drawing to a close, and Season 2 is about to begin. We have some important information on how the end of season process will happen, and the times and dates for each step.
During maintenance next Tuesday morning, March 22, the ladders will be locked. The lock will mean that no further league promotions or demotions can occur, and bonus pools will stop growing. So now’s the time to push for that promotion! Once locked to a league and division players can continue to play out their bonus pools and compete for standing within their division until the actual end of the season.
During morning maintenance the following Tuesday, March 29, Season 1 will end and Season 2 will begin. Season milestone rewards will be distributed (more info about these in an upcoming blog), and bonus pools will start over. Internal skill ratings used for matchmaking and league placement will carry over from the previous season, so players who have played their placement matches in the previous season will only need to play one new placement match.
why does everyone with 0 interest in big east/georgetown basketball who has awtched no games at all this year suddenly feel the need to text me, call me, email me, post on facebook and post here about it? do people not understand how seriously people take sports and that's not LOL URRITE BRO MY TEAM IS LOSING LOLOL IT'S NO BIG DEAL back at them but more like "i ****ing like you less as a person now" instead?
I hate debating everything that has no meaning on my life and I think it's stupid that people get on each other's case for games won or lost.
The only enjoyment I get out of sports (I mean, other than I'm a sports fan myself, but don't take it seriously) is when people I know who take it so seriously (and are douchebags) talk up their team, but then that team ends up being a big pile of ass. For example one of my friends (ex-friends? He's a douche) was hating on Pitt football all season and saying how great PSU was. End of the year, they had the same records. PSU lost their bowl game. Pitt won theirs. He didn't say too much after that.
I like sports, but FFS, get a life and talk about something that matters.
