Context: I am professional programmer and doing competitions is my hobby. Alas I no longer have the time to put enough time to train appropriately. Still I enjoy doing competitions whenever I can. Typically my rating ranges in the purple/low orange range. However I find it more enjoyable doing div 2 competitions as typically in div 1 I can do only the first easier problems. I don't care that much about rating, if I had the option I would ignore it altogether. Before we used to have the out of competition option but I don't see it in the recent competitions. I know I could in theory create a new account each time I reach div 1, but wanted to know if there are other options. Also what is the reason to remove "out of competition" for mixed rounds?

If you want to try the problems in a contest format unofficially, you can do virtual participation after the round is over.

You should not make new accounts to compete in rounds, as it's against the rules.
