I've been sucked into several unrated games........and I don't like it. For example, one games was unrated, I lost....but still had points deducted. Why?
Also, a ouple of times, I learn it's unrated ONLY after the first move's been made.
Are you clicking on Play Now? If so, you are accepting a random challenge which may quite likely be unrated.
If you want more control, try clicking on PLAY -> Online Chess -> Open Seeks; look at the list and choose rated games (i.e. View -> Accept).
Or, click on PLAY -> Online Chess -> Start New Game. (Rated is the default in Select Game Options.)
Thanx much......if you lose an unrated game, do you lose rating points?
The list of completed games can contain different types of game: (e.g. turn-based, bullet, blitz, etc.). Each of these has a separate rating so it can sometimes appear that rating has changed between successive games.
Thanks Artfizz for your first response. It answered my question perfectly. Just what I needed to know. Thanks.
