    There is a highest rating for tournament usage. How about a lowest rating for 30 days to show how your rating bounces around?

    You could argue that for the highest too.

    How about a Highest and a Lowest in the last 30 days - and then an average of the two to determine eligibility for the tournaments?

    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.
