I think the thought is that the 40+ crowd will be playing other 40+ players and it will be easier for them to win and therefore ratings will move up. I don't think this will be the case as most 40+ players are playing dubs anyways and they are in many cases tougher than the 20-30s crowd in dubs. Plus the whole reason to set this up was for the 40+ players to play in both the 18+ and 40+ leagues, which many of them are doing.
