If your 55 YEAH its not bad, but not all 55s enjoy playing 25 yr old kids, in fact they don't enjoy playing against 30-40s either in many cases. Prior to 2013 people from age 49+ could play SRs which provided more players in that division. Now those players 49-54 can't play there. That is a huge chunk of our available SR players, esp. when ur in a small town. So not only do we have to scrounge for 54+ players, they have to be 4.0s - if we recruit 3.5s we must meet the 25/75 rule, so the best ones are taken early if you don't jump on them. Agreed Cindysphinx, they should've left us alone.
