    I've been enjoying the tournaments and have been learning alot while
    loosing. How about a tournament within rating groups? Say every
    500-1000 ratings points? Just a suggestion. Thanks.

    Funny you should say that, I just came to the forum to say that I will
    try to add filters to the tournaments this weekend so we can have
    tournaments for different bands of rated players. That will stop all the
    big guns cleaning up on every tournament! 🙂

    This would be cool, I think that the tournaments will have a positive
    effect on ratings overall.

    Each person playing a broader pool of opponents (particularly in the
    big group tournaments) should produce a more even rating across the
    site.

    Currently if a group of friends play regularly on here and don't play
    much outside of their group then their ratings will reflect their relative
    abilities within their group.

    Regularly participating in tournaments stops this ratings island
    problem from happening
