    Your motive is right here. If you wanted to be the leader of your own team, you would've done that a while ago.

    Have you read my post #781? Do I get an answer?

    And are you really doing 3000+ rated problems every day and getting them right?:

    How are the next tactics chosen for me when I am training?

    The next tactic for you is chosen randomly from within a pool of tactics that are within a rating band close to your current rating. As you move up or down in rating your available pool of tactics changes.

    The only cheating method possible to me, is to quit the TT when you are not sure that you have the correct answer within a short time and to avoid any losses. Without losses, the calculation method seems to be overly positive. It still requires you to solve some tactics correctly and as a method it is kind of silly..

    BTB facts:

    - Played the following games:

    vs Scottrf

    vs ireallybad

    vs nathanoakley

    vs nathanoakley

    - Only played chess 11 months but with more than 2.5 tactics per minute at a 75% success ratio to reach 3300+ rating.

    - Plays his online and live games at a level expected for his experience in the game.

    Analysis

    Unless he is some sort of AJAX hacker, he is getting assistance at the tactics trainer. In either case, it is artificially boosting his TT rating.

    Btw he doesn't have the highest TT rating. That goes to this guy , who is 3700 at TT, but established a highest ever bullet rating at 1507.

    Another "notable" tactician is ORB73. And yes I have reported him many times. Btw if you look at his games, you will see engine moves in bullet. And did i mention he played himself using a duplicate account?

    Cmon staff, are you protecting these guys because they are diamond members?

    The real question is: how does BTB get 25% WRONG ?

    Here are some ideas:

    - he is too slow to set up the position in time, or sets it up wrong (in accordance with his experience in the game).

    - the move in the TT does not agree with the engine move (e.g. if its from a famous game played before engines were good).

    - he gets most of the puzzle right, but not the whole part (in accordance with his experience in the game).

    - he actually attempts the puzzle himself, thereby creating a sort of safety net regarding his statistics (unlike ORB73 who is such a genius with 96.4% pass rate).

    In before the lock. Enjoy, vultures.

    Sure, but you still have to come back and face the 2400+ level puzzles next time.

    No, I had to get Kohai to prove my innocence to get back in. But now I just don't want any part of team England for it deeply upset me that they would ban me based on a few allegations. So I just thought I would ignore them and instead of arguing just set up my own team. Which is team United Kingdom! I believe that this was the right thing to do as it avoids having to ever speak to the team England admins again.

    Here you state that you could get back in. But i understand, being in doesn't mean you're accepted. Based on what W_Y said above, they want an explanation.

    But to tell you the truth, even if you gave an explanation that doesn't mean they'll accept you because of your behaviour. Further more, having your own group doesn't mean your past behaviour won't haunt you. All this comes back to dealing with your problem.

    Yes I am, Sometimes the problems repeat though and I remeber them. Once you get to my rating they repeat a little but I still get new ones, sometimes right sometimes wrong. But as I said, I have resolved this all so let's not argue. My online chess needs a lot of improvement.

    We're not arguing, and you haven't answered my post.

    Because I memorised things. The tactics are all simular. Sometiems I rush and get things wrong. The thing it is I can spot these things on a tactcis trainer, but in my online chess I lose focus. I wish I could do soemthign to stop this loss of focus and then I could be up to 2000. What would you reccomend to keep me focused?

    The top scorer on chesstempo, cmuroya I think, apparently has an incredible photographic memory. If he's seen a problem once, he never  forgets it. He seems to do nothing else apart from solving and re-solving tactics problems. He's done 420,000 of them.

    There were a lot of allegations in the forum there at first, but the site owner looked at his data and said no, everything's ok. If there's a new hard problem on the site, he'll spend up to 20 minutes on it, whereas he does all the rest in 10-15 seconds flat.

    But your story still doesn't fit. Even if you have a memory like his, you still need the time to memorize thousands of problems. You've spent a grand total of 5.6 hours up till now, an average of 24 seconds per problem. Sorry, but no way.

    Sometimes yes, maybe when you've done thousands of them, but not when you've only done 900 og them. And you do one every 22 seconds. I won't argue if you don't feed us this bulldust.

    I do spend time when I first see them (1-5 minutes) don't forget the tactcis on here are not as long and after that I memorise them and get them in seconds. However sometimes I forget part of the thing and get it wrong. I really would not do 420,000 tactics, it would drive me crazy. What I want to be now is a tactics approver for chess.com. I really want to add a few puzzles of my own from my own games from times where I did a tactic line against my opponent in a good game tot he bad games I had where I got obliterated and my opponent had a few tactics.

    I'm still waiting for the video evidence, suggested by yourself in the other locked thread.

    Edit: no more time wasting, bye.

    There is a glitch which lets you quit problems within a certain amount of time and not lose points. I like BTB and enjoy playing against him but I am still skeptical. I do not believe he used an engine just the glitch I explained. While not technically cheating I guess, it is still unethical.

    Plus he does not cheat in online games so whether his TT rating is correct or not does not really matter.
