    I don't get why people have rating limits for challenges. It's just not fair that people with ratings too low or too high can't challenge people.

    ..Why wouldn't they? I personally don't like to play 1100s.

    because it's not worth the time of a 2000 to play a 1100.

    I'll play anyone for rating points. I'm not saying you shouldn't do that because I can't make you stop the rating challenges thing. Sometimes, I just have those unfortunate losses to players with a rating much lower than me.

    You shouldn't under estimate players. I did and it costed me these games:

    Game 3417832 :'( :'(

    because we're masochists and like to get kicked in the face. it builds character. lower rated players can only sucker punch us, if they're very very lucky. and that's just not enough pain to give us the pleasure we crave.

    it doesn't apply that well when he's now rated higher than you...

    When I played them then, they were 1100-1200 range.

    For those subscribers, they have time to play much lower rated people since they have unlimited games. I'm also speaking for myself here.

    I'd like to get down to 10-15 games, so I'd have more energy for training and faster chess. but I suppose the starting of next tournament rounds will kill that dream for some time...
