I created my first large tournament with a rating range, and sent an invite to members of a group where I'm an admin. All very cool, except that it sends the invite to everyone, even people who are several hundred points outside the allowed range.
I didn't want to annoy all those people who can't possibly enter it -- is there any way to limit who gets invited to the ones who match the criteria? I bet it won't let me send more invites either, till they all decline... Any suggestions?
Hmmm...Lets think about this one together.
i am an Admin of the Israel team. from my experience it is possible to invite members by choice but not according to rating. simply chose one by one. but actually there is another possibility: in case someone who is over the rate decides to join the tournement simply abort his entrance. you can do it as the admin of the tournement. just be sure to not set the tournement as automatic, otherewise you might miss out. hope this helps you and goodluck Idit
Since the tournament HAS a rating restriction, the invited person who is outside the allowed rating range will be automatically prevented from joining - when he attempts it, I think.
A workround is to generate a list of group members sorted by rating, then explicitly invite (as tidi suggests) just the members in the appropriate range. This can be achieved by creating a dummy team match.
i thought so too, but i had a tournement with over the rate joiners and they were not eliminated. since then i am manually removing players

I finally learned how to study tactics right and finally improved my rating
