Why not have everyone play in the correct division where you can play with people at the same skill level and actually get paid in one or two tournaments. Its the people moving up when they shouldn't be that causes the whole "problem" of "bagging" and it annoys me that people can't follow some simple guidelines on what division to play.
Thanks for the post, I usually post something close to identical each thread like this. If you WANT to play up feel free. If you want to be competitive (and isnt that the point of a tournament) than play your division according to your rating. If everyone did it than there would be no issues.
