If that makes any sense sorry I couldn't think of another way to explain it.
I understand what you are asking and I hope I explain it in a way you can understand. First and Foremost, no player will be moved up to the ranking of D2. The only way you can move to the D2 ranking is by playing in the PSP. That is the APPA Rule.
A player’s classification is based on their classification rating. Players will be promoted to a class at the end of the season based exceeding the following ratings:
Players who play in a division higher than their current classification will be promoted mid-season if they also exceed the following ratings:
Every time you play, you get ranked and recieve points as per the classification program which you can see here - http://www.pspevents.com/index.php?o...55&It emid=69
If you a D4 player who plays in the D2/D3 division, you do risk the chance of being reranked to D3 depending on how you finish mid season and end of season. If you dont do to well and always finish at the end of the pack, it is very unlikely that your ranking will change. But remember, it is just not the GPL/MAPL. It is all APPA events. So if you choose to play another league or another event that uses the APPA system, you can be reranked by those points being added to your overall.
I hope I was able to explain it clearly. Basically - if you are D4 team that plays in the D2/D3 division and do well after a couple of events, you are most likely going to be ranked D3.
Good luck and hope to see you out there this season.
