I would like to remove the feature of being downgraded after time. This is not a good idea in my opinion because people who worked very hard to get grade 4 (FOR EXAMPLE) don’t play for a few weeks because of some reason and they go back down to grade 3! This took them many hours to accomplish and they go back down because of some other reason.
For example, I flew for over 3 years, now, to get grade 4 and I recently broke my device, which took a few weeks to get fixed and I’m back at grade 3! For me this is frustrating, discouraging and for others, it could be a good reason and time to stop their IF live subscription!
I think that you should stay at your grade level even without flying so that you don’t stop and stay encouraged by your Grade Level!
