are you sure about this cause i didnt notice that at all
The more games you played, the lower your rating decrease / increase.
The first time i played against a 1400 rating i won 250, now i only won 16
i just wanna say hi
Agung, this is serious, share your thoughts with all of us.
I think it would be better to start at 900.
Starting at 1200 means that everyone is overrated. I know for certain from playing chessmaster on the PC at my chess.com rating means I get pasted. My real rating according to that program is under 1200.
Just my 2 euros :)
Oh yes it does! How well you play includes how well you manage your time. Time is as much part of Chess as it is in other games. In football you could score the greatest goal in history, but if the referee blows time before it goes in it doesn't count. Similarly in Chess if you don't get your moves in within the time, you lose, and correctly so.
Maybe not much effect on your rating in some cases. I played some1 almost 150 rate higher than me and when i won, i was upgraded just 1 rate and him less by 1 rate. teh i played another 1200 starter and lost almost 35 rate and he jumped up to 135something as a first bonus??????
I still don't get it????????????
ratings dont even matter
Yep. Though I must say, I can't stand being a very low rating. It's demeaning. I know it's a game, but winning is the point.
if i get challenged, it tells me how many points i risk or gain, how do i know if i challenge someone else?
i never see how many points i can risk losing or gaining ... where do u find that out?
true. blitz for good memory and sight. plodders rely more on their analytical skills, performing poorly in blitzes. so i think....anyway.
I agree , 1200 is average, and you can rise or down, play and no ask, or you can do yourself the website.
