is there any thoughts of changing the IDs to the APPA because a majority of the tourneys are now using the database and the site displays experience between leagues unlike paintball id which is only used for the GPL?

i think it would make sense to switch, especially with them planning on expanding nationally

would be smart so players ranked higher in other divisions wouldn't be allowed to sandbag lower divisions.
i know the rulebook states it, but its been done already.

It would be a smart idea it GPL switched to APPA, I mean who has a "national" event without APPA ranking system?

i think sandbagging is a HUGE problem at gpl. you already merged d3 and d2 together which in some ways gives d3 a disadvantage, then you allow 2 d1 players on a d2 team. some teams even flew under the radar last season and had 3 or 4 d1 players on a team. I feel (and this is just a suggestion) you should allow no players over d2 in the d2/d3 divisions or just have 3 seperate divisions of d3, d2 and d1 like nppl...... flame away. lol

They are going to have to do something with the close of NPPL. The problem I see with the ranking system is there is no way to verify the ranking in NPPL now.
Using the APPA is a start, but there will be more sandbagging to come in the future with not being able to cross-reference names with NPPL (even though I believe GPL does a very good job catching it - some of it that you are complaining about is out of their reach...), its inevitable.

My 2 cents.

Sandbagging will always be there until there is a "unified" system of ranking used by all leagues and events.
