Will ACF Nationals 2020 target the same difficulty as last year?

We're targeting Nationals-level difficulty, but we're consciously aiming to rein in the bonuses and middle clues relative to the past few years. The goal is to allow for more buzzes in the middle of tossups while still providing an adequate challenge.
