Just wondering what your rating is? I think mine is around 1250 only now:|
what's so funny? :P
I was hovering around 1600, but I've slowly dropped off to ~1400 when I started doing them more regularly. I'm not sure that's the way it should work.
must be because you do them quicker and quicker
Or maybe Christmas is just the best time for tactics training
I wasn't far off 2400 but have dropped off to 2200 now... I don't think I'm very strong tactically but once you start to learn what to look out for in tactics trainer you can get a decent rating.
I used to drift between the 1200s and 1300s, but I changed my strategy. Now I take as much time as I need until I see the tactic. Initially when I did that, my rating went down, but now it is in the 1600's. I think doing them slowly helped learn and then I started seeing the tactics better.
Just a theory.
