How about tournaments in every format for those whose DCI composite rating is officially 1799 or under. There can be classes established just like there's an age class (Junior Super Series) have the following: World Class - DCI composite rating of 1800 and up Open Class - DCI compositie rating 1500 - 1799 Class A - DCI composite rating 1499 and under Novice Class - No DCI rating, first time entry level players. One time only. Heck, you could even have an Exhibition Class (Casual) where you can play in tournaments (Of your class choice except World Class) but you gain/lose no points no matter the outcome of your match. You continue on if you win and drop if you don't. Your DCI rating is checked at the time of registration at the tournament site. Once your DCI rating goes up beyond your class level you're automatically bumped up to the next level. This could work for Standard, Extended, 1.5, Limited (Draft or Sealed) and Classic. Your class level that you start at is determined every year at the end of the World Championships.
