True. If they are going to stay with the principle of you have to play within your own region, I think they need a minimum of six regions(3 sections per region except one 2 section region), or preferably eight(2 sections per region except two that have three sections. Then they can keep the 'principle' of advancing from section to region to national, but with more regions you can make some geographical sense, although there will always be cases of people who live on the 'edge' of ther region. The same thing happens now with sections.
