I'm a new Platinum subscriber, having been a Gold member previously. I've now been through some 30 lessons, in sequential mode - adaptive was way too confusing (I'm currently probably a 900-1000 player, a real novice) and have a few suggestions for improvement:
Re: the analysis function. The overhauled Chess Mentor is fabulous and Kudos are in order for management and staff. One problem though. The analysis function does not work and it would be wonderul to have this to better follow lesson commentaries. Thank you
You're not a Platinum member.
I couldn't agree more about the rediculous ratings. Chess mentor is awesome except that one thing for me. I am 1500s player. When I try the puzzles rating 1800, I have no clue what to do. I usually give up and start checking all the hints and key squares and key pieces until it shows me the answer. Afterwards, I simply make the move they tell me and BAM +133 (or something crazy) to my rating. I find myself repeatedly deleting my Menter rating because the adaptive puzzles are way too advanced for me when im rated 18-something by Chess Menter. So....
PLEASE CHANGE THE RATING-SYSTEM FOR CHESS MENTOR! Thank You!
Believe it or not, the Chess Mentor rating system used to be much worse. In January 2011, I had a rating in the 2400's and I am just another patzer. They might tweak it again, but I have a feeling there are other priorities. Don't get hung up on the ratings; just enjoy the courses. I've done some of them over a dozen times. Hoping the information eventually sinks in!
