I wasn't sure if this should go in the Tournament forum or here.
I personally like the Octet style tourney's. Not too many games, and the tourney is over quick.
The Octet tournaments have a separate tourney for every 50 point rating group. For example, they have a tourney for 1450 - 1499, one for 1500 - 1549, etc. But it stops at 1600. with one tournament for 1600+.
The only reason for this that I can think of is that, at one time, there may have not been as many players above 1600 and there was problems getting enough players. I wouldn't think that would be a problem any more.
The tournament is not very competitive when I'm playing folks 600 points higher. Could we break up that top octet a little more?
[Edit] Okay, so I do know how to spell Octect...dang it! I mean Octet, okay?[/Edit]
