Played an unrated online game with a friend and lost, which is expected since he's rated over 500 points higher than me. But my rating dropped 3 points, even though the game was unrated! Is this normal?
No, but the game in question (55257176) is recorded as rated.
Artfizz, look again. I just looked at the game, and it is clearly marked as unrated. Oddly, I checked MangoMike's profile, and sure enough, his rating dropped from 1319 to 1316. Perhaps this should be reported as a bug.
The name of the game is 'unrated' - but it's rated.
artfizz is right, that's just the title. Click on the "Details" tab, it is rated.
Sorry, I only looked at the title! My friend started the game and sent me the challenge. He named the game, and since our games are all unrated I never even questioned it. Appreciate your help...
Some 'friend'! It looks like a sneaky way to gain points.
I doubt very much that it was a vast conspiracy to get three rating points! Human error seems a much more reasonable explanation.
He told me he gained one point!!!
Human error seems a much more reasonable explanation.
Yes - for just about EVERYTHING!
My wife isn't buying my "human error" excuses any more!
Is there any chance that a 1300 rated player can beat a 2700 rated player?
