    Some of you out there have entered all 3. The reason there is 3 is so that more people can get a chance to enter these tournaments. I'm not mentioning any names, but I do think you all should be considerate of your RHP neighbor and withdraw from the ones you have entered with exception of one of them.

    Do yourself the favor as well. By entering all 3, you're going to be giving yourself almost 120 more games on top of what you have.

    You're right, they are duels. I misunderstood when I was looking at the pairing. Regardless, learn self control. The tournaments are for everybody.

    Noone need worry - we will create as many tournaments as people wish so that everyone gets a chance to play in as many tournaments as they like.

    Yes, the reason we created three at the same time was to give an opportunity for lots of people to enter, but if they all fill up too quickly with the same people entering, we will just create more!

    And if anyone is concerned that they are always missing out on the next one when it is created, just let us know and we will reserve you a spot and enter you automatically.

    Thats great, I was going to withdraw from two, because zakkwylder did have a good point and I was feeling a little guilty. Thanks Chrismo!

    In light of Chrismo's post, I shant make ado over the matter anymore. However, its commendable that you were going to. Some others just don't care around here.

    Is this a new policy?

    I haven't been able to enter any tournaments for my rating (high 1428 in last 30 days) since I came out of provisional status because they all fill up too fast. This time I just lucked out to see the tourney before everyone jumped on it.

    And since you are here, is there any way we can keep the players who have once had a higher rating but are now at a lower rating (because of massive timeouts by leaving the site for a time) from entering these lower rated tourneys and basically using other players in the tourney as steppingstones so they can get back to their higher level? It's become a habitual and constant problem.

    Wow, is that a new policy?
    I like duels, so I don't feel I need to resist entering all tournaments anymore...!

    You have only played 32 games in over 2 years. You should visit the site more often and you will have no problems entering tournaments.
