    Nearing 200000...!

    That's the reason I got out of the Monster Mash 1300-1499 one. Not that I had much chance of winning that one, but with the 'greatest RHP player to be' in it I don't wish to get another 38 games added to the current load.

    exactly the reason why I left that tournament. Looking forward to some interesting games, but it would be nice if I would at least have the idea that I could have a chance at winning....

    Has anybody asked Thecyl to leave the tournament?

    not me, as has every right to be in there (with the current rating setup). Not blaiming him for being in the tournement, just think the site should take care of these things (by implementing a rating floor).

    This is why we need something like tournament mods. To watch bandeds like these and keep the high rated players out of the lower bands. Of course something would need to be set in place to allow the player into the correct band.

I was looking forward to this tournamount..The first all against all in my ratings group i've noticed that wasnt already full to capacity. Dont see the point now.. grrrrr 😠
    I have just e-mailed Thecyl asking him to withdraw. I want to enter the tournament as well, but would like at least a chance of a win rather than just take a beasting

    You need mods for the people who won't leave kindly when asked. This happened with one of the top 20 (currently) on the site not to long ago. Entered a bunch of bands and when asked to leave, didn't (at least I believe he was asked). The mods probably wouldn't be needed all that much but still, it helps to have some preventive measure in place.

    P.S. have fun playing fierytorment 😉.

    P.S.S. Drat, I have the same situation with Red House in one my tournaments now...Hmm, I'll message him when I get my sub back. Blah, this sucks.

    agreed, just tried to put some sarcasme in my post (but that obviously didnt work ;-)

    ps: I am already playing fierytorment in an other tourney. And even though I made some stupid moves, I still think that I am going to win atleast one of our games.

    pss: actually forget about that ps, dont want to jinx it......

    Pst, no talking about games in progress Deubel..... 🙂 If I could enter a higher band tourney I would, but with the rating I can't.

    keep your shirt on, didnt say you needed to get out of that tourney.... and also wasnt asking for any advice on any games. This site is not ran by the gestapo you know.... Just saying that I am already playing some games against you cant be that bad, or can it....

    By the way, looks like I will be able to pull of that win all by myself... although you will probably walk away with the points in the other game... Anyway good luck and looking forward to some more games against you.

    And you, as a 1900-player, has no doubts about entering a tournament for players below 1750? No moral scruples of any kind?
