I don't like to moan, but I have just tried to get into the Aplha Tournament rated at a maximum of 1250 and been refused because my rating was 1292 in the last 30 days. My rating is now 1224 and I have played my 20 rated games so it will not change much from now, trust me I was just lucky in a couple of games that got me to 1292. Can this be reviewed?😀😕
Unfortunately there will always be circumstances that mean that whatever method we use, it will result in something like this happening for someone.
I think this method is very effective. The good thing is that after 30 days, your maximum rating will qualify you for future tournaments with a 1250 max rating.
