Quoted from chuckwurt:
I assumed that all restricted players are simply added to their restricted division after the legit 200 spots were filled. When i learned this wasn’t the case, I agreed that it doesn’t seem fair.
I suspect that logistics are what keeps this one from happening. Imagine:
* 60 people are tied for spots 171 through 230 at the end of day 1.
* 18 players are A restricted but didn't make the top 200 at the end of day 1.
Do you make the A division all 248 players who scored down to the natural cutoff? If so, you could very, very easily end up with an E division with 10 people in it unless you inserted other rules like allowing some of those people in spot 171 through 230 to be in A but not others. You'd need either a random, played out, or skill-based tiebreaker. In any of these scenarios, you'd still end up with people with legitimate complaints that they played well enough to make the A division but were bumped down by players with restrictions.
