That will happen until no one wants to play or NPPL goes bankrupt.

I have no complained once about the entrance fee but i thought it was way high. But when you come in here and say something as ignorant of that, you have shown you obviously do not know what will come of this if it continues to happen down the road.
Agreed. Basically NPPL can make roughly the same amount as last year by getting fewer teams but those teams that sign up pay more. However, if the prices continue to increase there will come a time when NPPL starts to go negative from too many teams leaving due to high pricing.

Theyll be able to get away with it for a little while but eventually teams will just start switching over to the cheaper feeder series such as DLeague or whatever or even possibly switching to PSP.

registering, approximately $200.0

Is this rule put in place to prevent teams from sandbagging and playing down a division or is it also designed to prevent teams from playing up? My instinct tells me its the former, but with all these changes to the structure of the league, I just want to be sure.

Can I register a team in the D2 division even though the majority of the players on the roster have a D3/D4 ranking in the NPPA or are simply unranked/have never played an NPPL event before? Or will they bump the team down a division (or two) without saying anything and charge us more money?
Yes you can register a lower team into a higher division without repercussions. This rule is only to help eliminate sandbagging, not to deter teams from playing up divisions.

Just have someone in your pit power up the gun without air and work the trigger while the back up gun is used on the field. Simple fix.
