My estimate is that ~0.5% of the players in NEPL use NEPL points to qualify and play in a different New England state championship compared from the one where they play the majority of their regular season NEPL matches. I don’t know what percentage it would have to be for this proposal to make any sense, but it would have to be much, much higher.
Players who play in any of the NE state championships would pretty much not be affected by your proposal. They’d pay more and receive commensurately more on average. What do you say to more casual players (aka, 2/3 of our players) who have no interest or ability to play in a state championship but will be taxed $6/season?
