Considering the number of games Ive played I dont think my score was bogus... appreciate your humour though..

Did the rating system change at all? I don’t think I’ve dropped off that bad but my ratings from a while back are down ~2/300 points??

Oh, you are so right, DaddyJama..  my score is now 1270 - 1300..  down from 1450 ish. Chess.com have done something to the system and told no one.  My game has certainly not deteriorated so what da heck is going on

Well, imagine, rating points are like pool money in Casino.  Some players must lose rating points  while some players are gaining points. Other possibility is the statistical odd, you can win/ lose 20 games straight.

 

Sharing( points) is caring!! Agreed?. 🤔
