The shuffling is easy to do, reseeding based on rating is trickier and a dirty hack at first glance, I don't see a clean way to get that done for now.

Sort on rating is doable.

If rich isn't reseeded and we use pente_gon's pot sorting semi-random selection, then it is almost certainly the case that zoey will be placed in Pot C and richard in pot D. If I thus understand it correctly, there will still be a 25% chance that both richard and zoey are placed in the same section with a top 4 seed and a top 8 seed. Unlikely I know, but we then have a 1 in 8 chance of:

pente_gon/watsu/be_water/karlw
spavacz/madhippo
zoey
richard

in the same section in Round 2, much stronger than the other sections.

Anyway, I still think it's an improvement over the current system and we could sit here complaining all day about any outcome--that is not my intention. I just wanted to get the information out.

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

Apologies all for making my moves so late, got caught in the middle of holidays. I hope it will get better now

I hope Rich doesn't time out. He hasn't been on site since the 18th, so he's got to know his vacay days are dwindling.

I don't want to play non tournament rules games. If you take one of my unrated invites, play tourney
