Originally posted by tiggeronvrbThe problem people have is that the provo is possibly a much higher class player than his 1200 rating indicates and so we stand to lose more points than we should for being beaten by what is in fact a better player.
I think it will lead to far less games being deleted:

Can I ask why it bothers you when you are not a provisional?
Originally posted by iruThe provisional rating system is open for abuse if the opponents can be chosen (you can beat 1800 players to earn a 2200 rating or just lose to 2000 players to earn a 1600 rating), the inability for provisional players to set rating limits on open invites helps control this (it still happens sometimes).

The change will make RHP more attractive for those who just joined us.
I think my proposal is more logical then existing system. Why setting rating limits should be implicitly bundled with exclusion of provisionals? I suggest to add a check box for the latter ...[text shortened]... ng points, just enjoying and learning the game. Out of my 3 games in progress one is with p1200.
Originally posted by Dr StrangeloveI agree. :-)
I think the current system works well.
