Players showing different ratings.

I presume this is the correct subforum; don't use the forums too much, so apologies if it's not. Anyway, I've had a lot of daily 360 opponents recently who show as 1800 (exactly 1800, interestingly) when in a game against them, then show as unrated or significantly lower rated in their profile. Is this something to do with people getting banned for cheating? Makes me wonder why people are cheating at such a relatively low level, tbh, speaking as someone at that same low level.

People might show as 1800 when they are unrated, based on their self-evaluation when they sign up. While your game is going on , they may conclude other previously started games, thereby earning an actual rating. When players are new, ratings adjust quickly.

Huh, okay, so the rating shown when actually on the game screen is fixed at their rating when the game starts? That makes some sense, thanks.

I am not sure if the rating updates on the display or not but the rating used for rating the game is their rating at the moment the game ends.

Can you post where you see this rating of 1800? 

 

This doesn't have anything to do with being banned or cheating for sure.

When I'm in the screen with the game, to actually play it, it shows the opp as 1800. This opponent's profile is showing as unrated for the mode (daily960), whereas a previous opponent who also showed 1800 on the game page showed as something like 1400ish on their profile. It makes sense if the rating on the game screen doesn't update if the rating changes mid-game!

Yes what notmtwain said is absolutely correct. Happens to me all the time when I play the computers in live chess (who play many opponents at once). For example in your game against ali2y, he’s a fairly new account, he probably started all his 960 games at once, and concluded some games prior to yours finishing. The ‘displayed’ rating in the game doesn’t change dynamically unfortunately.
