This is the most important note to mention.
Not everyone was aware of the PPL before they got there. And think of how many people would be turned away if they saw a big long rules list of who they can and can't battle. The reason we picked the format we did, was for two main reasons: 1) it's easy, and 2) it's familiar. Everyone who will be challenging the league will understand the game's badge system, so they'll by default understand ours.

Yeah, having thought about it more, time and complexity are major issues that should be considered. If everyone was going to a weekend PPL meet-up where that's what the weekend was dedicated for, it'd be more conducive to a more elaborate set-up. People would be going expressly for that purpose and probably would be more apt to follow a more complex scheme. Seeing as how this is a fun player-run thing in conjunction with PAX, leaders and challengers alike undoubtedly have a laundry list of things they want to see and do.

Personally, I think the general idea of trying to lighten the load of the gym leaders is good, as the lines at the meet-ups were a bit discouraging. It's just a matter of finding a good way to do it without disturbing the simplicity and attractiveness of the event as a whole.

Well, the first post was off the top of my head, so scratch the whole tiers thing, but I still believe inter-player token system has merit.

If your worried about time, limit the non-leader battles to the Standard Cup for quick, meet-in-the-hall affairs. That's a much more appealing prospect to me than waiting and hour+ in line or worse, being turned away all together.

I still personally believe the vs. team thing would be a lot of fun. Again, it could be run as a side game for people who are interested.
