    The number of days considered when calculating the "Tournament Entry Rating" has been increased to 365 days, from 100, to help prevent "sandbagging" in tournaments.

    The Tournament Entry Rating for every player is available from the profile page, as before.

    Excellent move. However one small point. It can happen that a player's rating 'spikes' considerably because a much higher rated player resigns games even though in clear winning positions. This distorts a rating and it does seem unfair that a player is penalised for a year through no fault of their own.

    That said, it is a small price to pay for what is a good move to go to 365 days. May be some refinement to deal with the 'spiking issue' could be considered?

    As the T E R is half the difference there is only half a spike if you see what I mean

    This can be adjusted by removing the 10% highest and lowest values first (meaning 10 highest values and 10 lowest values from a total of 100 values) and then calculating the average.

    365 days is a great improvement, thanks Russ.

    The tiny differences caused by things like the Korch meltdown are just that, TINY.

    Yes but everyone is going to experience this so you'll find there is a weakening effect on the bands...

    I've gone up 200 points in entry rating from a high of 1500 last Aug 08.

    Looks like I must play smarter from now on.

    Over all good move Russ

    Speaking as a 2000+ player, I'm not thrilled with the idea of seeing 1400 rated players [who used to be 2000] in the high-band tourneys... πŸ˜•

    surely that's very unlikely, despite the new changes..
