Tournies fill so quickly, it is not always possible to see them before they are fully subscribed (esp as a mid-range player) so this would be useful.
I'd also like to see more banded duels in general, as these don't swamp the game loa ...[text shortened]... ame - taking on an additional 10-14 games at one go can almost double the game load.

The system can't handle loads of pms at once.
I have suggested a few times an optional news ticker on the My Games page, which could be customised as to what it contains on an individual basis. The only info that I feel (at the moment) should be broadcast on the news ticker are site announcements, opening of consultation votes, certain tournament info and possibly that it is your turn in a siege.
Two things that should be compulsory would be new Site Announcements and Opening of Consultation Votes.
Then, after that, each user could customise what they wished to see with regards to tournaments. I'd probably set it up so that it announced the creation of any banded tournament that I am eligible for, and longer time control tournaments. It could be quite easy to customise with tick boxes for tournament type (Banded, Free for All, etc) and timeout (0, 3, 7, etc) and timebank (3, 7, etc)
The system wouldn't have to send thousands of pms either. And the consultation votes would give a better representation of how the entire site feels.
