    If I resign my games in a tournament, will my rating go down? I've just joined a tournament but really did not want 50 games all at once! As moves have already been made I don't seem to have the option to withdraw.

    If you resign immediately, before 2 moves are made, it doesn't affect your rating. It will still count as a loss in your statistics.

    I don't think that's true, if you delete a game within 2 moves no rating points are lost, a resigned game is the same regardless of how many moves have been played.
