    I won two tournament games where the opponent hasn't been around for over half a year and timed out. These two games don't show as wins insofar as my rating is concerned. Is this normal for tournament timeouts at the very beginning of a game? Is this a bug, perhaps?

    Any game has to have at least 3 full moves before it becomes a rated game.

    Ok, thanks; I didn't see that on the tournament FAQ. Doesn't exactly make sense in the 2nd round of a tournament, but there you have it. 🙂

    Needs to be updated to show that no points are awarded if you win in under 3 moves.
