Originally posted by ElleEffSeee It still wouldn't stop good players from entering banded tourneys in a lower band than themselves just cos their rating has taken a dive over the past 30 days due to time outs, etc.
I understand that. However, there has to be a more effective system for the tournament entry, one which is less up for abuse.
How about a modification to that idea, then. A combination of current rating, highest rating in the last 30 days and highest ever rating?
This would prevent large amounts of timeouts to be less of a over-riding factor and allow past form to be considered too.
