    The idea of using the current rating is fatally flawed, infact its a sandbaggers dream. It would be must better to use the tournament entry rating as a basis. As a clan leader though its up to me to protect my players from sandbaggers and I am sure you feel the same way because you have a reputation for someone that scrupulously researches challenges. I don't always get it correct and sometimes one or two slip through.

    I agree about the current rating.
    Not sure without checking , but I don't think the t.e.r includes the 5 yr rating and also there's something in the formula about 100 or 200 points below current rating I seem to remember(again without checking).
    A straight average shouldn't be difficult to implement.
