I would say the levels of the players are more variable, but not necessarily stronger or weaker. About half of the tournament players are (usually stronger) league players, but the other half are self-rates just for the tournament who range from cannon fodder to guys who dominate 4.5 leagues the following year and didn't know their level when they registered for the tournament.

Tournament matches don't count towards DNTRP, so there is no incentive to avoid tournaments.
