Rapid tournament games
I would like to propose a change to the rapid tournament time control.
Currently it is 30 days plus 1 day per move.
From the games I have been playing on here under this time control, I have noticed that as soon as you get to about 20 days left, it seems very difficult to get any higher than 20 days or so.
When you have a few games with this amount of time, it feels like not much time left at all.
I would like to propose that a new time control be made of 20 days plus 3 days per move. This still guarantees that a player will have 3 days to think of a move regardless of how many initial days they have used up.

This proposal is not rapid ournament. It is almost is rapid now. Since i do not play I have no say Wayne

a new time control perhaps
Well it could be for a new set of general tournaments with different rating bands than the current ones.
Perhaps a wider rating band to provide opportunities for more opportunities to play different people.
We shall see what Thibault says.

It seems this time control is ok for most players who use it (sometimes even too slow yet)... If you feel it's difficult, more reasonable would be to play standard class tournaments.
Still thinking about a longer time control.

Thibault de Vassal- It seems this time control is ok for most players who use it (sometimes even too slow yet)... If you feel it's difficult, more reasonable would be to play standard class tournaments.
Another suggestion is that I make sure I play the opening moves of any rapid game rather quickly, so I dont get into time trouble early :)

Anyway this time control is quite difficult IMO.
About rating bands, unrated and WCH tournaments are a way for players with different ratings to meet themselves.
