    I was going over my tournament record (😞) and came up with an interesting statistic. I have finished 27 tournaments while I've been on RHP, all opens or high bandeds. 11 have been won by players who have been banned or 40.7%. I was wondering if other players who played primarily in opens have the same type of numbers.

    are you hoping for some retroactive wins?

    Harsh comment, but interesting statistic. I think the number of banned, high-rated players have made a mockery of the clan scoring system, the clan leagues and the tournaments and I am sure there are more bannings to come.

    This makes me wonder if a percentage like this equals to banded tournaments with winners that are 'way out' of the band. I have a feeling, athough no wisdom, that we will get over that 40% easily...

    I've played in 20 completed open tournaments, 2 of which were won by players who were subsequenly banned, ie 10%.

    Small sample group, but 4 from 7 open tournaments for what its worth.

    I joined a sub 1250 comp when I first joined. An engine won that one, funnily enough.

    Meman and fckallie accounted for all 5 of the tournies won by engines, that I took part in.

    But you have chances of winning the K-duel tournament. That one is open. Well, sort of.

    (Ai... And I made it almost into the final. Just one darn sneeky move away, hoping Chakan would not notice)

    Zero of Seven that have finished. Five of those were open.

    Grand Split Three Seven XII: XanthosNZ
    Autumn 2005 Face Off Banded 1800-1999: XanthosNZ

    I guess my timing has been good considering the number of those that contained cheaters that were banned before they won.

    5 out of 15 equalling 33%
    In my running through the tourneys I fell over this "Man vs Machines" one; Tournament 306

    maybe there should be a tourney just for banned players

    Harsh comment,
    It was meant to sound sarcastic but really maybe that should be the case. If a player gets baned his/her tournament victories should go to the runner ups.

    only 2 of my 19 finished tournaments have been banned players as winners (both Trackhead21). 10.5%

    One thing I found interesting.. I was in a 1400-1499 banded tournament around when I first joined the site.. the final round was between 2 players over 2000, and the person over 2100 was the winner. (but.. that would be another thread............

    Yeah, it bugs me that the rating displayed on a tournament page is always your current rating. They should finalize the rating shown when the round ends.

    I have finished 14 tournaments, of which not one engine has won...which i believe is pretty great compared to the stats shown, 0% 🙂🙂

    Quirine, David Tebb, Rosaline, and Peri dominated most of the 14 tournaments that have finished with me as a participant.
