The opinions were split almost equally between Random and Rating.
Comments gave a different perspective:
25 Random (2 requested high fees to be Random)
18 50/50 mix
05 Other Comments.
Therefore the general guidelines will be to attempt to split Tourneys equaly between Random and Rating Seeding (50/50).
I would like to reply to 3 questions raised in the comments:
So what happened to quarterly in this?
It is a variation of Rating, and is considered Rating in this case.
With the random rating it appears I always end up in the lowest seed spot. I agree that all tourneys should be equal but why do I find myself at the low end?
It is just a coincidence, Random seed is never the same.
Random means that the last player to register usually gets first rank which encourages late registering.
Random seeding has nothing to do with the time registration sequence; the last to register may get the lowest seed, or any Random number at the top, in the middle or at the end.
