    how is it that a provisional player can enter a grouped banded tournament? one player started at 1200 and now he is at 1600. how is that fair to the 1200 rated players? This sucks

    True. I think a script should be implemented that provisional rated players are automatically kicked out of tournaments with a rating limit.
    Or taken care of by the tournament mods when they'll be around..

    I am in favor of this as well. I still feel bad about my one tournament win, a tournament I joined during my first weekend on the site without even noticing the rating group it was intended for.

    in one of my tourneys there was a player that was a provisional 1250 in a 1200 and lower tourney for a start and he then rose to 1365 so that kinda wasnt fair either lol
