    Retarted me entered a Xmas tournament, when I have way to many games. Will it affect my rating if I resign when its under 3 moves?, or be a poor sport?

    I dont really care about my rating, except that it will make my clan challenges unfair. IDK

    You can resign before you make two moves and it won't effect your rating.
    Not sure why you think you think it did, but it had to have been something other than you resigning a game before two moves were made.

    I just checked it with me being white too, when I did only one move, It does affect my rating also, the only time it dont affect my rating is when I resign at ZERO moves, oh well

    Ratings will not be affected if the game is deleted. If you resign a game, your rating can and will be effected.

    I don't believe you can delete tournament games or clan games.

    It's true. Tournament and clan games can't be deleted. Because the result of that one game has an influence on other games.

    So the only option is to resign.
