    Hello . What happens with rate´s actualizations...?.

    I just had two wins in round 4 and my rating isn't actualized yet. Normaly, the rates were actualizad inmediatly after a game´s result.

    As I understand Tie Break points are summarized to the rates once the round is finished. Round 3 was recently finished and tye breack pointes are not summarized yet.

    Could someone explain the situation....?

    Regards, Javier

    Hello everybody........!

    We at group 2 allready finished our round. It was a very hard to play with all my group's pairings but it was exciting too. My best souvenirs and compliments regarding opponents rates and their chess playing quality. I had the honor to pass to next round, so my hope is to start next rpund before X-mas and then, finish my first year at Chess.com as a good chess year.....!

    Best ragrds,

    JavierGracia / Venezuela

    9 games to go!! Sometimes I forget that I am playing in this tourney ;) I don´t understand why it is allowed to be on vacation for such a long time! A few days would be enough xD I hope that we'll be able to go on in september, but there are some games which are still in its beginning.

    My guess: 26th-30th of September

    Yeah, I think it probably is.  I registered at chess.com a few months ago, and in general I love it; but this one thing, allowing vacations during tournaments, is making me reluctant to become a paying member.  I can't think of a better way to ruin a tourny.

    Woah, I forgot I'm still in this tourney. I'm a little overrated now though. I guess this is normal for tourneys with vacation?

  • 3 years ago

    pauix

    Well.... finally less than 10 games to go. I think this is going to start again the 15th of September. What are your guesses?Tongue out
