D3x teams for CFPS1?

What's up with the lack of D3 teams for CFPS1 with a bunch of d3 players signed up for d4? Also, what's up with d2 players on D4 teams? What's the rule on higher ranks for cfps1?

Seriously ^ It's freaking embarrassing how teams in Florida try to play down to sandbag and win events. Have some self respect and stop playing little-league. D3 used to be a division that you played when you were serious about tournament ball but couldn't afford to practice every week with a full xball squad. Now it's the "best" local players? Joke.

They follow the PSP ranking system. So you could have a d2 and a d3 on a d4 team as long as their two point totals aren't higher than 1968.

8.3.2.4.2. Up to one Division 3 player and up to 1 Division 2 Player with a classification rating no
higher than 1476, provided the sum of the classification ratings of the top two players on the roster is
no higher than 1968.

Its sad, I have seen teams play D4 4 season now, like come on. We played 1 season as D4 bumped to D3. Once you hit D3 in Florida you local career is over, its the sad truth. The only teams that would sign up would be Royal Flush, Papa Squat, vipers (maybe), TKO (maybe). Seeing how all the TKO and RNT kids are all d2. I mean its the same to play d4 then d3. No difference in price now, its all race-4. Some of the teams that have been playing d4 for multiple season should be forced up...... if not Florida will never have a D3 series rant over....

Very true man. D4/D5 Rt2 should be your stepping stone to D3x. I've seen players dominate D4 and never want to make the jump. I mean how else do you get better? Challenge yourself, challenge your team and push yourself to become better. Complacency is running rampant. Florida teams are always competing at the highest levels in all leagues and formats, its sad when our premier state series can barely muster 4 d3 teams...sigh...

No TKO, or RNT will be signed up anymore, like you stated, all of us from both of those teams last year are now ranked d2, so now way we can put teams in.

But I do agree, it's sad as hell that we can't get a d3 league going.

Loving that everyone has a similar mentality...

It would be cool to see a league implement a reversal of the entry fee structure.

Basically, the pro players play for free (they are the ones already generating the most money for the event), and the lower you go, the more you pay. you'd want to keep the 'lowest' division fairly affordable, however. This would force good players to all team-up together and strive to play at higher divisions.

Are you high, stop suggesting ways to run a league that's already 2nd largest in the nation.

Also, lack of teams might be because a lot of local PSP teams just created new teams, meaning people are saving for dallas instead of playing CFPS. Pretty normal to see this happen at the beginning of the season.
