    It's getting on for a fortnight now, and we're still only at 12 people.

    Less than that. Two players have already gotten themselves above 999 and will not be able to play in it. 😛

    only the rating when you joiun is considered. (I once played three banded tournaments in paralell since my rating dropped so fast one day...

    Edit: as I see AJAXo who has been rated 1500 in the past is trying to get an easy win out of it, what a shame

    Huh, I thought it was the highest rating in the past 30 days at the start of the tourney. Perhaps I was mistaken. I just started entering tourneys again, so my recollection may be off.

    I saw AJAXOs graph as well (he has left the tourney now, by the way). A fair number of entrants have been at higher ratings according to their graph, up to about 1300. I suppose this is to be expected though.

    p.s. pardon the edits. can't spell to save my life today. 😀
