We could simply use their 5-man rule book, and a ton of issues and questions that arise every event could be removed.
Jersey tuck in rules
What counts as a one for one, two for one, etc...

Not picking on Storm, but as an example, their L1 team is having success at the D1 level nationally. Maybe their D1 status would be a cut off point for L2. Storm Silver now under the current system has to bump up to L1.... My whole goal is to get some discussion going about this topic.
I agree with Buck on the rules.
As for the L1/L2 deal, I know some of the current L2 teams don't want to bump to L1, but it kinda seems like an even bigger jump from L3/L4 to L2. We're bumping from L4 to L2, so we're D4 at best and will be playing D2 teams according to 1w00d that have national experience?!
Has anyone ever suggested making L3 5-man and having L4 as the only 3-man option? If L3 was 5-man, you could split up L1 & L2 and maybe get a few more teams out that don't want to waste their money getting blown up by L2 teams.
L1 = D1/Semi, L2 event/series winner
L2 = D2/D3?, L3 event/series winner
L3 = D3/D4/D5, 4+ tournys played, L4 event/series winner
L4 = <4 tournys played
And the APPA ranking is LOL! Based purely on the APPA ranking, it looks like about half the L2 players at MPS#5 could have played L4!?
