EPL uses APPA so that shouldn't be a problem. But for the guys just starting in the tournament scene won't stay long if they are playing d4 and top d5 teams every weekend. I agree that you should play better competition to get better but only so many times are you willing to pay money and get smoked every weekend.

The prize packages are there to attract those teams and the d2/d3 mapl has the PSP pro reffs come in so players are attracted to that knowing they have one of the highest trained reffs on the field
The whole reason d6 has medals only is to attract this beginner teams and to almost force d4/good d5 teams to play in the d4/d5 division. No good team will play in d6 if the prize is only a medal. They will go for d4/d5 where they have the opportunity to win axes. Maybe for d6 they should offer just like a cheap jersey or something low cost ontop of the medals but the whole purpose is to keep sandbaggers out and have beginner teams enter the event with confidence that the better teams will compete for a prize in the higher division. It all makes sense IMHO. Plus the d6 division is pretty cheap if I remember correctly.

I would vote for a d5/6 div and a d3/4 div. I think you would see more teams and better competition in both.
