Is it just me, or should 8 players who share the same rating (say:1471) have the same rank as well?? If there are 25 people on the site who are rated 1471 then how can one of them be ranked 1000 and another ranked 1025?

i guess optimal would be if all 25 people rated 1471 had a ranking of 1000,
then all the people rated 1472 had a ranking of 1026.

but of course: DOE IT MATTER?

Surely you mean people with rating of 1470 have a ranking of 1026.

You could then sort them by highest rating in last month (which is what tournament eligibility goes on) the odds of two people being the same would then be sufficiently remote that it really wouldn't matter. Maybe this is what they do.
