    It was a noble effort, but it is designed for individual play, not clan play

    It does not have the desired effect

    I'm going back on my original strategy, with the hope that the clan rating will be undone
    Which brings us back to page 1 of this thread. 😛

    I agree with mgrgrhgrhgrhgh55 and gianotti regarding the new points system, particularly the following:

    1 point per game
    and
    Bonus points for overall win or draw accordingly

    I used to play in a pool league and, even at county level, this is the same kind of system we had in place.
    It makes every game count, as well they should.

    The only thing I would add is that challenges between the same clans should be limited at once a month, or maybe a little longer but not much more.

    I am also strongly in favour of tighter moderation... there's another chess site I play on where they BAN people for resigning games prematurely, or if in drawn or winning positions.

    ~~~~~~~~~

    As for the sandbagging issue, I still say that's down to ALL clan leaders to be careful when vetting challenges.

    This year since taking on leadership, I've had multiple challenges that were bounced back at me with opponent changes,
    where the new opponents' average ratings (1 year and 5 year) exceeded my player by 100 points or more!

    The solution is simple:
    Withdraw the challenge, then look elsewhere 🙂

    Can I do anything else for you Robbie ?
    Padger I always thought of you as the man of reason. You seem intelligent, fair, and with good idea's. Not sure why you would put a response that is beneath you? Your better than that. And yes. I respect Robbie and I also believe in him as a leader and a moral man.

    This is a chess site, and people need to get a life so they wont think the entire world and humanity all depends on a chess forum.

    I have never had one cross word with you. I would like to keep it that way.

    All this complaining over an issue that has been decided. It's over. Easy Riders are the champs. End of story.

    Time to wipe the tears and focus on the here and now. Something t ...[text shortened]... try the plan Russ has, and see how it goes this year.

    Robbie do you like the changes so far?
    it will never be over robbie cheated just like you done in 2015 with strategic ultimatum
    you got clan suspended and cheating points removed
    the same must happen to the easy riders

    no time limit
    no amnesty

    Russ removed the clan rating from the clan table sort drop down menu.

    So perhaps we are trending in the right direction ?
