That's the difference between minor and beer league.
As for which one to play go for the highest level you can possibly be at. Go for B.
I play in the middle east and the teams are a mashup of skill levels and nationalities.
Some of the guys I play with/against has played junior/college or the equivalent European league.
There are beer leagues in the middle east? That's awesome! Are the players mostly expats from North America/Europe? I love the idea of hockey growing to non-traditional marketplaces. Not as much as Bettman, but still.
House league is like tier 3-5 at most levels. I play in a 12 tier system and tier 12 is home to absolute rookies who can't skate, while tier 1/2 are former junior players or really, really good guys. I'm assuming you want a challenge but not to be destroyed. Are your teammates going to continue playing? Maybe you could make a team with them, if you're all old enough. That way, during relegation your league will put you where your skill level is.
