I am just saying if it was or is within the CC tournament rules, they should and will count. High ranks generally have to sacrifice a ton of points for tournament titles. It is a little touchy with me because I wanted a lot of high ranks in my tournaments to get them more involved, but, this was not allowed and basically this is what I was told, that I had to start making them more open to the general public, not just 2500+, so basically, I had to trade points and cripple my relative rank at a great loss for tournament wins, I didn't like it much, but, I did it to prove a point, that high ranks or some anyways can succeed at winning tournaments. Not many high ranks with 3500 score+ will play around 3,000 tournament games when the average player you face is 2000 score lower than you are, but, this is what I did, and this is why I was strong on saying they count. I poured in a ton of time at a high price and that should account for something.
