    I read that QC passed a requirement for winners of direct titles have to first get their rating within 200 points of that title's level. When does this come into effect. Would the new changes apply to this tournament in terms of direct titles award (CM, FM, IM)?

    It still has to be ratified by the GA, which might overturn it in the case of CM/WCM. If it is ratified I can't see anything saying the effect is delayed, but I'll check that at the next session if I get a chance.

    The new regulations will come into effect only from 1 July 2017. So titles at the Zonal will not be affected whatever decision the GA makes. So the organisers can use the last chance for an unrestricted CM title factor as a selling point.

    It would actually be a reasonable rule though.

    What do you mean by overturn in terms of CM/WCM. So it means the 200 points under rule won't apply to CM/WCM? But still apply to FM/IM?

    That is possible. The Development Commission head is objecting to applying it to CM/WCM. We won't know the answer for a few months at least as the final decision has been referred to Presidential Board. But in any case the Auckland Zonal is not affected.

    Just don't tell the Qualification Commission that. It's partly the huge number of Oceania CM titles from last time that has driven them to try to bring in the restriction after this one.
