TM League Tournament Rd 2 Match for members rated 1900+. Good luck everyone! Cheers, Babs :)
better not be anymore!
Not suprised, know just about all players on the english club scene, and never heard of her.
Yes,Babs,3 on your side and 1 on mine!,but none of them gained any points so that's the only good thing.
Wow Rebecca was cheating .... boooo :(
And bloody cheats!!!
Yes Mizerak :(
Timeouts making the difference, so far...
Time to Rock 'N Roll!
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!
If you had a 68% win rate, then you would still get invited to Chess Nuts as long as you don't time out of more than 1% of your games, and you have been a member of the site for at least 3 months and have played at least 50 games. The minimum win rate we invite is 55% and the max win rate is 82%. Numbers I felt were good numbers to work off. We started this process 2-3 months ago.
How is the win ratio derived? I found the stats page, it indicates Win percentage is Wins / Total Games. I have a measly 68% winning percentage. But why is the line drawn at 82%? Why not 80%?
No I'm not Mike.. as I said in my comment below " I know this means that we will be missing out on inviting some honest players as well but that is the price we are willing to pay to try to keep cheaters out" some will be honest and some won't be but we're not taking any risks. I only commented because of AKarpov777's comment, so was just explaining WHY we don't have many in the very high rated end on the board here.
I hope that you are not suggesting that our higher rated players are cheats,are you,Babs?
We now don't invite anyone to Chess Nuts who has a win ratio of more than 82%, to try to avoid inviting cheaters. I know this means that we will be missing out on inviting some honest players as well but that is the price we are willing to pay to try to keep cheaters out.. hence you will not see many 'extreme' high rated players on the boards here for Chess Nuts. :)
I'm in both teams
Good luck Martin. I'd happily join you here if I was able, but I'm not up to playing with the big boys yet.
woho, my first match in category 1900+, I hope for some place left for me :)
Good luck to both teams!
