Team matches for someone who is member of both teams

  • #1

    This  I have been thinking for a long time.  We are not allowed to sign up for neither of the teams in a team match when we are the members in both.  While it is possible to sign up in a similar situation for a vote chess - why not in a team match? 

    Here is the situation.. we have two (or three major groups) and almost every active player is a member of atleast one of them (say Team A).  When such a team challenges other teams (say Team B), it is most likely that all members in Team B (or majority of them including strong players) will also be members of Team A and will not be allowed to sign up.  Then what results is strong players of Team A (who are not members of Team B) compete with members of Team B (who have membership in Team B alone) while strong players in Team B will not be allowed to sign-up (if they are members in both teams). So one can imagine what the result is going to be.  I am not sure if this is the fair way to do.  Players should be allowed to chose one team of their choise (and only one in a give team match) as the way it is allowed in vote chess. Can the staff at Chess.com do something to fix this?

    In the old days of the wild and lawless chess.com, misguided members of Team A would join Team B and intentionally lose.
