Hello to all,
I love doing the tactics trainer on my phone whenever I have a small slot of free time in between my classes, however I have noticed an irregular trend.
For some reason, whenever I solve a problem on tactics trainer on my phone I only get around an average of +5 rating per problem, however when I do it on my PC I get about +10 to +15 per problem.
I know some of you will say that I may be taking longer on my phone than my PC, however this is not the case! I have solved some problems in literally 5 seconds and I only get like +8, however when I do them on the PC I get around +12 to +15.
I was asking, is this intentional?
I believe this is simply a coincidence. Each tactic is rated, and if you look at your recent tactics stats, http://www.chess.com/tactics/stats the games where you receive +5 when the problem was solved quickly (100%) it also shows that the problem was slightly easier than previous ones. As when you win against a lower rated opponent, your rating increase will be less than if you won against a stronger opponent.
About the average tactic time,
I know it is based on the performance times of all who complete the tactic, but I find it a bit annoying when I lose points for solving something less fast than others. In a game, I won't get less rating points if I win with 5 mins left on my clock compared to when I have 2 seconds left. Or is that also to prevent programmes from solving it and getting way too high 'surreal' ratings?
Problem is you get only easier problems on the android than you current rating, you should get equal to higher rated problems.
