    Bit at a loss as to what to say here other than ... WTF!??! My clan leader asked me if I'd like to play in the clan tourney.

    "Yeah sure why not" I said.

    Little did I know that the people I would end up playing would be 300 - 900 points higher than me. I am 1150 & I have lots of 1600 players & even a 2000 player!!!

    I am about to loose probably 10 games here - take a trouncing - loose points & all for what? I mean sorry to rant - but what's the point?

    Somewhere along the line someone has lost site of what this is all about! I mean I like a challenge but that's just having a laugh! :-/

    !?!?!?

    That comes down to a lack of communication form your clan leader rather than any fault with the site in general.

    You may lose the games (you may not!), but it will not cost you a lot of points and the best way to learn is to play better players. Take it as a free chess lesson - hove some fun, and try somethings out.

    You would say that .... :-)

    You are one of my opponents! :-)

    I agree & that's my view but I am not sure my clan leader can be the one to blame. He doesn't choose my opponents does he?

    Don't worry about loosing points. Anyone over 1700 will only take 1 or 2 points off your rating only beacuse their so much higher than you. 2000+ won't even take a point.

    The reason your group is so difficult is because it's the first season. The clans haven't had time to sort themselves out yet, once a couple of seasons of promotions and relegations your clan will be matched against even opposition. Don't begrudge a few games against strong players, those are the games you should really study to find the strongest moves. You won't get a better learning opportunity than you'll find in a game 😉

    I see makes sense now thx! Still a 2004 opponent at 1150 sucks :-) Not learning much from that game other than how to die quick :-)
