    Grouped randon tournaments are always very popular. Why not open a new tournament as soon as the previous one fills up. That way there is always a tournament available that everyone can enter

    Because they'd fill up 2 and 3 a day. Very illogical.

    Just start 1 a day then, or one every day and a half.

    Or weekly a series of tournaments?

    Say:
    One week big banded tournaments, an open duel, an open sprint, a big open all against all tournament. And the other week duel banded tournaments, some open groups and a long haul.

    Wouldn't the speed at which they fill up slow down over a breif period of time as people join tournaments because they want them, not diving in ASAP just to ensure a place.

    SOLUTION:
    start it up so that a new tournament is automatically created when the last one fills :

    if this tournament fills in less than 2 days ... then increase the size of the next tournament by 10 players,
    if this tournament takes more than 5 days to fill then decrease the size of the next tournament by 10 players.

    eventually there could be two or three timelimits for which this process is done ... i would suggest 1/7, 2/14 and 4/28.

    I agree with this proposal

    it looks like russ may have started doing something like this with the banded tournies at the moment!

    i suspect it is also happening for the others but we just cannot see it yet.

    This all seems far too repetative. I would like tournaments to be more regular, but not as repetative as you are suggesting.

    I am not sugesting only having grouped random tournaments, but I think there should always be a tournament open that everyone can enter.

    I agree that new tournaments should be created regularly, but would also like to see that people who log on less frequent have the opportunity to join a tournament. Now it seems that players are simply joining multiple instances of the 'same' tournament. Two or three instances is fine by me, cause I too love banded tournaments. But why joining up to five or six instances? Please give some others a chance too!
