There are 430,000 accounts. 9600 of them have moved in the last 100 days. Of the 9600 active accounts I guess that about 25-40% of them are subscribed.
Originally posted by FishHead111Ive been a sub for four years, but I'm even thinking now that whats the point, considering Non Subs get 12 games. Unless you want to play Clan and Tourney games, you may as well be a Non Sub.
THANK YOU !
So of the almost half million accounts about 3000 are subscribers LOL.
(Not counting inactive accounts that are subs, but how many of those could there be?)

Originally posted by vendaAgree with you Dave. It would be good if everyone subscribed though.

Could you cope with that?
The subs are hardly extortionate after all.
If I was short of the pittance it cost's me every year I'd probably kill myself.
Originally posted by HabeascorpNon-subscribers only play open invite games. I find that this tends to mean I only get opponents of a similar rating to mine, plus or minus about 150. I do get the odd opponent who is much stronger or much weaker, but not as much as when I was a subscriber. I am good against players who are more than 200 weaker than me. According to the ratings system I should expect to lose one game in 10 to a 1,400 - but it is more like one game in 50. Similarly I'm bad against players more than 200 stronger than me - I lose too many games relative to what the ratings system says I should. So if I subscribed my rating would be artificially inflated from playing lots of lower rated players in tournaments. The games against stronger players do not offset that because there are fewer of them. My peak rating as a subscriber was 1966. As a non-sub I haven't managed more than 1848. So if I am in any way typical then it makes a 100 point difference to one's rating.
I am sure it is a ratings question. Do I have an advantage by restricting myself to so few games to concentrate on or do more games assist?
