    Howdy!

    Just wondering if it would be possible to offer additional high rating groupings instead of just 1750/1800+ ? I find that quite often about half of the entrants to these tournaments have 2200+ ratings and that really makes me not want to participate - unfortunately there's no alternative once you're above 1750/1800. And mixing 1800s with 2400s is like mixing 1800s with 1200s.

    So maybe two categories like 1750 - 2100, 2100 + (or similar) for the duels, trios, quartets, octets ?

    Thank you very much

    Agreed. I don't look forward to the 1800-2999 band, which is all I am now allowed to enter....

    Has anyone tried sending a feedback about this? It might get some action for you or at least a conversation with Russ about it.
    It makes sense to have grouping increments be in linear steps from the low end to the high end.

    Good idea - just did it.

    Judging from the list of currently available tournaments this just got implemented - thank you very much.

    It's a start - but the bands are narrow! Some of them are only 25 rating points wide.

    Think I'll try sending some feedback of my own.

    Note to self: Sending feedback works.
