    What happens, when a 2000+ player takes control of the board? The rest of us don't get a shot at winning the board, the only other person who can take the board away from them is another 2000+ player, but then the same thing happens all over again.

    So the strongest player holds the board?

    Thats not fair!

    Lets send feedback. It would be much better if the losing player takes the board.

    I suggest rated boards, such as 1800+ rated boards, 1700-1800, 1600-1700 boards. I think I'll post this in Site Ideas.

    What happens when a 1650 wins the 1700 to 1800 board and then his rating rises to 1900?

    Isn't one of the ideas of seiges that you get an opportunity to play the stronger players and the evidence is that such players cannot hold the board indefinately as it only takes a draw to lose it.

    take a look at some of the boards English Tal is playing in the 1/0 sieges, does it look like someone is going to get a draw or win?

    i think someone has a better chance there than anywhere else, all it takes is for him to miss a day by an hour after he move the day before and someone could time him...

    Yeah, that English Tal guy keeps knocking out guys like me.

    What would be nice is an "opt out" feature, wherein you can step away from a Seige board (or the next tourney round) with no game loss or rating loss. That way Seige champions can "retire undefeated".

    really good idea, adds a mental thing to it..someone trying for a record but then seeing someone good coming and steps down the champ..
