Not Only New Tournaments, But Also News in Tournaments

As you may have noticed, there have been some significant changes regarding tournaments. There are much more tournaments, much larger tournaments and last but not least, much better tournaments. In fact there should be a tournament going on at any given time of the day! Apart from these, we brought you some other new features.

First of all, a slight refurbishing of our Top players section has taken place. Two more options to assess player’s prowess have been added: Tournaments played and Tournaments standing. First of them is fairly self-explanatory; it totals up the number of tournaments a certain player has played.

The second one is a bit more tricky. It is a tournament percentile. Those familiar with the term can skip the rest of the paragraph. For the others: the number represents the percentage of players less successful then the player concerned. The higher the percentile, the better the player.

Another new feature is the awards system. For attaining a good position in the final standings, player is awarded a medal. There are gold, silver and bronze medals for first, second and third places respectively. There are also special prizes, granted for winning bigger championships. All the awards are placed in the player’s profile.

Awards are meant to constitute the bulk of players’ prestige. Getting them is not easy, as the competition in tournaments is becoming harder from tournament to tournament. So, ChessFriends, go out and hunt for them!
