    They fill up much quicker than banded ones....I like the opportunity to play people of varying skill levels.

    Send feedback requesting the tourneys you'd like to see. Chances are one of them will be created.

    Am I mistaken in believing this forum serves as feedback? I thought it made sense for us to post our requests here rather than flooding Russ' mailbox.

    *bump*

    THREE banded tourneys available for my band-level waiting to be filled up and only one unbanded tourney that already filled up before I had a chance to enter.

    I don't get it.

    I sent feedback about this problem already and have received no reply yet.
    I also noted that Russ has failed to respond to numerous complaints in the forums in my feedback.
    It is obvious that russ doesn't care to respond to any questions about tournament problems.
    I wish people would stop making excuses for russ.
    This has been going on for almost 4 months.

    Interesting that you have trouble with the feedback. I have always received prompt replies. That said, those unbandeds do fill up quickly. Personally I would like to see unbanded Swiss tournaments where they recognize winners in multiple bands (in place of the inane tiebreak systems currently available, knowckout games could be played).

    Yep....More unbanded plz...!!

    Is it just me or does anyone else find it funny that only the strong players want more unbandeds? Then again, the low rated players just flock to them when posted, so I imagine they would like more too.
