Well, that's about it. I don't find any reasonable explanation for this fact. Are they transversally expanding as the energy increases? Please, remember that strong interactions are short ranged and the geometric cross-section of the proton is about 30mb. At 10 TeV the total cross-section is about 100mb. This can be seen in:
(Figure 4, in page 11 and Figure 6, in page 12).
They claim that the black disk limit has been exceeded. That means that over 50% of the $pp$ collisions are purely elastic (which can arguably be labelled as "boring") at 13 TeV and also that this percentage will rise as the C.O.M. energies get higher.
I'm also unable to find a qualitative physical explanation for this.
It makes me wonder about the upcoming upgrades at the LHC.
