    why not start a couple of different tournaments? The last ones are exactly the same. I would like some with shorter timebank and the same timeout. Maybe some tournaments with rating range or bigger group size.

    Good idea! We need more tournaments with rating range:it's pretty hard for a 100 rating player to beat a 1900 rating:this happened to me that I have to plat against Skeeter.
    In this tipology of tourny are always the same who reach the final rounds and I think it's no fun for low rating players who start a hopeless match.
    There can be three rating ranges:800-1250,1250-1700,1700 and over..............let's post your opinion!

    I like the idea of "class" tournaments. On Playchess.de they have a similar sort of system... but it doesn't necessarily have to be a part of an individual's profile.

    It's also fun to go up against the monsters... ya never know when you'll be able to pull off a big-time upset!
