I was hoping to be inclusive and involve all dropouts irrelevant of their past experience in the Tournament.

well I am going on about players who drop out at the start so it does not make a difference

Surely that is dependent on how late into the Tournaments the Time outs occurred?

They may do, but does it matter either way? The ratings on this site are just the ratings on this site. I don't kid myself that I am a 2150 player - if only!

Seems a perfectly sensible approach to me and stops those who Time out deliberately, affecting the position of the those playing within the Tournament.

I have started a 13 player play all tournament, two players dropped out without seemingly playing any moves/games. So they quickly exceeded the time limits for the other 11 players to claim wins, for me this distorts performance could not those players simple not be included in the tallies? ie instead of say someone having 5 wins out of 8 say it should read 3 wins out of 6

ie Only include part and full games played
