Level 9 - Rating tournament
• hanfried_c at 2007-02-26

Today the first Level 9 - RT started. Participants are Blackhat, Jonny, fraggle_c and myself hanfried_c.

Sorry , if this is a stupid question, but: What means 'levels' at rating tournaments?

• hanfried_c at 2007-02-26

Level 9 means that the participants have a score between 1800 and 2000 points.

The range of each level is 200 points. So we have level 6 between 1200 and 1400, level 7 between 1400 and 1600, level 8 between 1600 and 1800.

A tournament at a special level starts if there are at least 4 players (with the appropriate number of points) willing to play.

Thank you for the answer. ;-)

Hello, can someone explain me, what is going on in this tournament???

If hanfried_c answer ist right - and i think it is - this tournament can not exist.

• Marius Halsor at 2007-03-06

I suppose you got above 1800 rating just after the tournament was decided to start (by some daemon), and thus was registered as a “level 8” player.

Another possibility is that there are so few 1800+ players that the system decides you have to play with level 8 players, as the chance of all level 9 players joining in on an RT might be too small.

• Jonny at 2007-03-06

It wasnÂ´t the first option.

The second was possible, but if i was in the 6. level, i waited much longer time for same level players.

• Marius Halsor at 2007-03-06

Ah, now I see what has happened. Fraggle_c has dropped below 1800 points, and thus there are only three players above 1800, which is not enough for an RT. Thus, you're automatically paired with level 8 players.

• Jonny at 2007-03-06

Aha, that is the answer :-() !! Thank you very much. Jonny

• Henrik Sjøl at 2007-03-06

I'm the “reason” why Fraggle_c dropped below 1800… ;-)

• Jonny at 2007-05-17

So now the first Level 9 RT is over. It was a close finish. Thanks to all player and i hope we can repeat that in a while. :-))
