    I was wondering wether or not we coudl have different rated siege boards. Then maybe all the higher rated players can have a board to their own without them beating down all the lower rated players who will never take control of the board. But with the different rated boards there would be 1000 and under, 1000-1100,1100-1200,1200-1300, 1300-1400,1400-1500,1500-1600,1600-1700,1800+ siege boards.

    And if winning any game puts you over that board's rating limit, you can't hold on to it?

    I guess not, but that usually will not happen. other than that, thats the only way you could abuse the system....I think....

    I'm guessing this is not a popular idea right???

    It's an interesting idea, but the problem is exactly what c99ux was getting at.

    Someone improving could eliminate themselves just by getting better. That's a problem that your idea would have to have a proper solution to. Especially since from what I understand, it takes a while to get to your siege game when you sign up and you likely could get higher than that rating during that time.

    Maybe it could just be that would have to be your rating when you enter and you can't re-enter if your tournament rating isn't in that range.
