I think it means that they might not want a rematch, but they could be using reverse psychology on you. First, they dissapoint you by beating and then make you angry by not offering you a rematch. After refusing you a rematch, they make you angrier and give you the feeling of powerlessness. After getting you out of you best mode of thinking, then they turn and grant you one, completing a mind f#@k, that for all intents and purposes, should have you come out playing either over zealous, so that you hang a piece, or that you will play nervously and tentative, affraid to lose again, with your position ripe for the picking....
....are you sure you really want a rematch... ?
Sometimes it can mean they started another game before you could offer the rematch and they can't take it (even if they want to) because they're in the other game.
I generally don't offer rematches and I prefer to accept rematches only if someone has a style I like, or if I feel I can learn something about a certain opening variation by playing them. If someone beats the everliving snot out of me and offers to beat me again in a rematch, I'll usually politely decline. And if someone feels salty that they lost on the clock in a won endgame or they lost after achieving an advantage in the opening... well that sucks but it happens to everyone.
Sometimes I humor salty players and take the rematch, but I know that one rematch can lead to another rematch, and that can mean committing myself to playing not one more but maybe four more games with them, and I may not want to commit 40 more minutes of my life to playing the same person over and over.
This thread was awarded the the dumbest thread of the....acutuallt dumbest thread in eternity award.
people don't rematch because they don't want to.
I play only one game at a time.
once in a while ( like bullet for instance) I rematch.
right now as I am typing this my mom is asking me for the PC.(lol)
not every one has time to play more than one match.
also no one likes playing the same person twice.
PS your idea was so dumb taht I puked.
the "play one game with no rating change and force them to take a rematch or else they will loose 100 rating points" idea.
please take into consideration the world does not revolve around you.
When you have to share computers you usually discover that your family members need more than 20 minutes just to enter to their email inbox
I know right.
along with it they also check Facebook and my dad downloads 2GB movies leaving it almost un-unsable for 8 hours.luckily (or unluckily) it's only on sundays.
