    it seems that at least one of the remaining 4 games is being played so slowly that they have only advanced  to the third move . Seemingly oblivious to the crowd of us waitung to prioceed to the next round I suggest  thar  a few of you send a message to the players urging them to proceed at a less leisurely pace

    What's happened to this tournament? It seems to have ground to a halt with one 1st round game in progress but one of the players 'on vacation'?

    If chess.com determines a player is cheating, they may likely close the players account permanently.

    I'm thankful for tournament directors for putting on events like this, I understand that anyone could forget to tick a box, to stop ineligible players from joining. Fair enough, we have to be given the boot, but I do think it could have been handled with a little bit more tact. Branding us all cheats seems over the top.

    As a point of integrity, I generally don't like quitting, withdrawing or resigning and as I want to have twenty games played by the time the next tournament comes around, I intend to finish the games I've started, safe in the knowledge that I can't go on to round two.

    The tournament director should show "no sympathy" towards players that failed to read, interpret or not play by the rules set for the tournament. That's the players fault not the tournament director! The integrity of the rules of any tournament must be maintained and never altered due to the excuses of a few registered players. These players should withdraw or be kicked out of the tournament, rules are rules! Thanks KnightBlitz...

    must be honest, i didnt notice the 20 game rule. feel it for those have to go because of this, i wonder how many players did actually read it?

    james, let me change my words: it's not cheating for people that doesn't gets into the tournamente just to get advantage; lets say that i made the mistake and the players who registered without 20 matches completed, registered without reading the information or, registered anyway. i didn't mean to hurt anybody's integrity, and you saved yours with your words, i'm just taking care of most of the players that aren't here to play against players that doesn't have a defined rating yet

     

    best regards

    As you had placed cheating as a title, I will not be recognized as one for the mistake of you. Don't place cheaters in the title when it is your fault. Don't blame other people for not reading the rules when we could join in the first place. I am however still removing myself from the tournament, but will still give the wins to those. Please do note that when you say "you're invited to quit the tournament as an example of your integrity; this cheating only ruins the tournament", and take no responsibility that it was your fault in the first place. That does display cowardness and the unability to accept the fact you made a mistake. Oh and believe me when my name has been placed for cheating, I am going to be pissed.

    Sorry, bout that, i also didn't notice the 20 game minimum. I'll withdraw from the tournament.

    Ashfaquerocks: yes, as you said i've made a mistake with the settings. Anyhow, it has also been explicitly said that this tournament is valid for players with at least twenty games completed. The guy that you're talking about, Mattias, has completely understood the situation and keeps playing his games just for fun, knowing that he's going to be eliminated because of the rules.

    I'd like to tell you a couple of things in front of all the players: first, if i go back with the decision of eliminate you and the other guys, I'll be disrespecting them, because they've joined the tournament agreeing that it will only be played by people who has a certain rate of under 1400 points.

    The second thing it's more tricky: i really wonder how do you know so much about tournaments and settings if you're such a rookie player with only ten matches completed! It has left me wondering about. How many tournaments have you set in this few days as a member of chess.com?

    The main reason of the rule we are talking about is to prevent the inscription of 'new' players that only want to take advantage of their situation by playing with a hundred guys that are in a lower level.

    You're better than us, if that's what you want to hear. You're far above a 1400 rating player, that's why you and the other players that don't fit into the rules will be eliminated. It's the only reason. We're trying to make a funny and competitive tournament here. Rules are set or writen, but you can't say they don't exist.

    Thank you all, lets try to play our games. I would like to remember this tournament for their exciting matches and not because of this issue that has already been fixed, and by fixed I mean that the guys named will be eliminated as soon as i have the chance to do it

    Guys, although not intended to cheat in most cases, this is what makes the subject of entering tournaments fudging the rules even just a little is all about. A few years back I entered a tournament rated -1300 and inherited an opponent that was rated less than 1300. After a few moves I felt I was playing against the computer. After looking at the guys history, I noticed he had won every game of the "10" he had played on chess.com. I investigated a little further, I found he had a USCF rating over 2000. Hopefully soon chess.com will build in the software that will correct these deficiencies like with their tournaments. It would sure take a lot of stress and responsibility etc. off tournament directors. Thanks, KnightBlitz

    But its ur mistake... while u r creating the tournament u should edit the the setting of  completing 20 min match .. so its all ur fault.. and u also don't for the person(mattiasb) who is in no 1 position is being elimated just because he had not played 20 game...This is really horrible..

    WHO IS TRUE SPORT MAN WILL AGREE WITH MY POINT... WHAT U ALL OPINION.....Smile
