Many Organizers and Arbiters want their Events to be run according to International Chess Federation (FIDE) standards. This includes the use of FIDE Ratings and player naming as per the FIDE Rating list.
Tornelo manages a number of External player profiles which can be linked to the Tornelo Player Profile via ID numbers.
Only Arbiters from Verified Organizations can link a player to an External player profile by adding and ID number.
Select use of FIDE Ratings
The Event settings must first be set to use FIDE Ratings. Create or Edit your Event, go to Ratings tab and then select FIDE as the External profile.
If you wish to Add players directly from FIDE Rating learn more here.
Alternatively you can choose a number of National rating lists. That way the names and ratings will correspond to the data of respective rating lists. If you want to add your national rating list on Tornelo, email us on [email protected].
