what is the timeout ratio in online chess games, and how can i lower it so i can play in tournaments again? thank you.
Don't time out!
The timeout ratio is the amount of games timed out divided by the total amount of games played (in a 90 day period). As mentioned above, to reduce it, play more games without timing out, or alternatively, wait enough days until the games you timed out on no longer factor in.
ok but what is a timout? i have not been running out of time on online games? is a timeout where i dont move for 24 hours?
A timeout is when u run out of time and therefore lose the game
