But I think it is (very!) good service to provide (more) rating controlled tournament on a regular basis, and preferly in categories divided by 100's. I mean; a tournament for peo ...[text shortened]... ot always the weakest in their tournament, or the ones just under 1200 not always the strongest.
I tend to agree with the 100 point banding especially in the mid ranges. The distribution of players looks like a log-normal bell curve with 1200-1300 at its centre. There are so many more players around the centre than at the edges, so there should either be more tounaments there, or narrower bands.
Looking at the player tables, a good banding would seem to be:
<1100 (793 players)
The lower bands are still quite loaded, but it does seem that the lower the ratings, the lower the percentage of subscribers, thus the number of elligable players is reasonably uniform across the bands.
