First, the biggest part of mixing was because there were never enough teams of any one division to hold the division and give out large prizes. Example
- lets say 20 teams sign up for the D4/D5 division and we give out $1000 in prizes. Now, lets say we split it and there are 10 teams for D4 and 10 for D5. The income did not change, so then we would have to split the prizes and they would be lower for both.
The other issue is quite a bit of players are promoted from D5 to D4 either during the season or at the end of a season alot faster because the move up required amount of points is pretty low. We also found the D4 division and D5 division skills are close together. The D4's and D5's are all competitive with each other. Remember - there was a time there was only 3 divisions.
