    The game ended and my rating didn't change at all. Why?

    There are a couple of reasons this might be the case. 

    First, keep in mind that not all games are rated, so your opponent may have opted for an unrated game in this instance. Check the "Details" tab (next to the game board) to see if it was a rated or unrated game.  

    (During a rated game, you can also use this tab to see a preview of the ratings changes.  Just click where it says "show rating adjustment.") 

    A less common case involves users who have timed out in more than five consecutive games. Once this happens, the system assumes that they have simply abandoned the site for some reason. After five games have ended due to inactivity, we stop making rating adjustments on further time-outs in that user's games. This is to prevent arbitrary ratings inflation.

     

    Abort - No effect on ratings

    Timeouts - No effects until four moves

    Resign- Affects ratings immediately after the abort option is gone (one move)


    Please note, if you resign or timeout on a team match or tournament game, even with no moves, this will also affect your rating (includes withdrawals from tournaments)., unrated, rating, change

    Thank you for information regarding rating rules, my opponent timed out in a tournament game after making a move in each of two games, and there have been no rating changes. Should rating changes have occured in this instance?

    Games with less than three moves per side may be cancelled.  In a tournament, you are still credited for the game points but since it is in effect a forfeit win on an unplayed game, ratings don't change.
