    Could we get some more tournaments. I got messages from a couple of players who have a problem with me being in the Mu Banded 1200-1399. Personally I don't like being in it but hey there arent any other tournaments right now and I'm not going to skip out on playing because my rating is 900 points lower than what it would normally be. Just want to say I didn't enter to steal the chance of winning from you lower rated guys, I have 1 tourney win and several more which are in the finals which I'm also going to win so winning a 1200-1399 one isn't something that will make me happy. I just want to play like the rest of you.

    I see hahabe, orfeo and Miracle don't stand much chance of getting into the next round of Mu Banded 4x4 1200-1399.

    tried that already. Once the players look at my profile and see my previous real rating they delete the game. And no high players are going to play me because when I win they will lose a chunk of points. Those guys have chances. I have blundered once after being up for like 2 straight days and thinking I could still play chess. It could happen again, never know. I should win the tournament though. Guess we'll see in about 6 months.

    Dude, come on..... You know you're better than them, and you know you'll be winning plenty of tournies within the next six months. Why not just drop out of the tourney and give them a chance, eh? It's the right thing to do.

    So you recently had a rating of 2200 and then you go and ditch a load of games dropping your rating. Then you enter a banded tournament for lower rated players with a max rating of 1399. You should be ashamed of yourself. It is well out of order! It's people like you that make the banded tournaments a waste of time and mess up everyones ratings. You're not going to make many friends with that approach. Why not just stick to the open tournaments? If there are not many available right now then maybe you should have thought about that before you ditched all of your games.

    please know what you are talking about before you speak. Recently, was like 2 months ago and I moved and havent been on the site since then because I was without internet. Son't try to get involved with the adults conversation, don't want to have to spank you :-).

    Trackhead,
    I do see your problem. Can't admin help you out here. Surely they can see the problem you have and would want to sort it out. I don't think entering a lower rank tourney is the answer because you should walk it and that may seem a bit unfair on the other lower ranks. In fact I'm in the tourney and would look forward to playing someone as good as you but let's be honest it is David and Goliath time again, but without the happy ending, LOL.
    Can you now enter the higher ranked tourney as well, since your rating is now over 1600? That would be better for you. I'll play you out of the tourney if you like, in fact we can playe several if you like. But you won't get many points by beating me. Challenge me half a dozen times if you are interested and I will try and annoy you.

    And another high(-should-be) rated player entering low rating controlled tournaments. This time Dustnrogers has entered the Pi Banded 4x4 1000-1099 tournament. I hope not he will be entering other banded tournaments as they become available the next few weeks when rating increases, considering this person really being a 1900+ player.

    Can anything be done to prevent formerly very high rated players entering these tournaments?

    at present rating for tournament entry is the highest in ther last 30 days.

    making it the highest in the last 60 ... or even 100 days might be better ... but then the high rated players will winge when they face a TRACKHEAD rated 800 in their 2000+ tournament!

    It's more of a honor system type of thing, I think. Players like TRACKHEAD and Dustinrogers should have enough decency to not play in these types of tournies, but we're not their mothers and I doubt there's anything we can really do about it. It'll certainly look quite silly if one of their profiles features victories in both a 1000-1099 tourney and a 1900+ tourney though!

    I agree,what about Dustnrogers playing a load of clan games against 1100 players?
    He's a 1900 player,then again they speak about fairness and crap like that.
