    Can we get a few More big tournaments with approx. 128+ entrants. Or maybe even more [entrants]. It appears there's only 1 tournament in the year that is big - the championship. Might mix it up some.

    The bigger the tournament, the more people who enter with no hope of winning.

    I'd rather play 20 people my own rating rather than beat up on people 300 points below me and get beaten up by people 300 points above me.

    The bigger the tournament the more competitive.

    I have just requested a big duel tournament (0-1400, 1400-1700 and 1700+ bands) of about 256 entrants this afternoon.
    So, hopefully it will be approved and started real soon!

    Hi all. From someone who has recently joined the site and is really enjoying it I think a good mix of tournaments is best. The banded types gives me a chance to really progress, whilst the open tournaments puts me up against some really tough players, I don't have much chance to beat them but I learn alot and the challange is to give them the best game I can, vice versa for those with a lower rating. Its a good mix of tournaments that makes this a great site.

    Cheers

    yeah but they're all thematic. Let's have some grouped randoms * banded and not banded, duels, etc, etc...

    IU like large tournaments, but they take a loooong time to finish. I especially enjoy playing people of various skill levels (especially those above me).
