Once elite, always elite?

Should I change the system so that once you make it to Elites, your team never drops back to Division I? As it stands right now, no matter what your prior record, at least a couple teams drop back to Division I when an elite season ends. Somebody has to take 8th place, after all.

Keep it as is. This way when a team finishes drops back then they can at least try and build up a better team before facing the big guns again
41 Championships
15 Second places
8 Third places
Avg Finish: 2.22
Undefeated teams:
Bluebulls 1st, 8th
Domination 4th,5th, 7th
Experimental morons 2nd,8th

Agreed, leave it as is. As much of a drag as it is to have teams waiting for elite, I wouldn't want them facing teams that have proved that they can't run with the big dogs.

Look at the other side of the coin, though. If you're in Div I and facing teams that [just came from | are nearly good enough to be in] elites, what do you think of your chances?

I can see the other side, but if I'm not mistaken, Div I teams are teams that didn't qualify for Elite from Div II.

After finishing a Div II season, a team is going to either:

Advance to Elite and face many teams that have many seasons in Elite, so they are up for a tough time

Advance to Div I and face teams that have been to Elite and been dropped back to Div I.

Either way, when you finish a Div II season, you're going to have a tough go of it the next season because you will probably be facing teams that have an extensive number of seasons under their belts.

My 2 cents.

Let em drop. I'll probably get to elites with crazy loons, get 8th and would like to drop to div 1 to get some money and some exp.

It's like baseball. Players are dropped to the minors when they prove they're aren't ready for the big leagues, but then they can earn their way back after honing their skills.

Leave the system be, it works.
The Supernerds-1st, 1st, 2nd, 4th
The Atomic Penguin Wrestlers-1st, 1st, 1st, 1st
The Streaking Flamingos-2nd
The Radioactive Zombie Camels-3rd
The Spastic Pancake Farmers-2nd
The Flaming Unicorns of Death-1st

question.

you fall from Elites to Div 1. How do you get back up to elites? Place 1,2 or 3rd.

Basically, to qualify for elites, your last three finishes are examined. You must have at least one medal and no 6th-8th place rankings. You "fall from elites" with a single 6th, 7th or 8th place finish, or by your last three rankings being 5th or 6th.

If you fell due to a single 6th, 7th or 8th place finish, it will take 3 seasons of better than 6th (at least one of which must be a medal) to get back to elites.

If you fell because you got three consecutive 4th-5th place finishes, it will take 1 medal season (with no 6th or lower finishes) to get back to elite.
