Confused for 2 reasons:
#1 - Like I said I was DQ'd and was still a "S"elf rate at the higher level after my DQ.
#2 - That seems like a loophole ... self rate as a 2.5, get DQ'd to 3.0 or even 3.5 when in truth you're a solid 4.5 and now you're a benchmark ... seems very exploitable to me.
You were Dynamically bumped up... not DQ'd. There's a difference. When you are playing as a 4.0s in a 4.5 league and you get bumped up mid season to a 4.5 based on results, then you stay as a 4.5s. If you get DQd as a 4.5s in a 4.5 league then you can no longer compete, your scroes are reversed and you will be a benchmark player the following year-end cycle. Big diffence in terms of "DQs".
