Bot Differences on Mobile App and Website....

Snorghma

When I play the 400 elo Filip bot on the website (desktop) it struggles to get over 10% CAPS with even the most obvious free moves, but on the mobile app (android) it plays theory and scores a minimum of 70% CAPS.  On the mobile app the main weakness it seems to have is not castling ever, where as on the website it hangs pieces religiously.  I don't understand how these could be so different... do you all have two different APIs for the mobile app and the website?

same problem here, only recently though. I'm rated about 1100 in blitz and rapid, but I lose to bots rated 600 or lower with a 90%+ accuracy. really annoying

Martin (250) can easily beat me with 95% accuracy, I really wish chesscom would fix this. Normally I can premove half my game against Martin and still easily win

Day two.  This issue persists.

I've had this issue for at least 2 weeks

It's not just a "human" bot issue, I just played the engine on level 1 (250) and got completely out played. Engine had 93.8% accuracy! With a rating of 250!! http://imgur.com/a/RhLa124 This is a horrible bug that should be fixed quickly. Chess.com may have new players coming to this app to start out and will immediately be put off by the insanely high skill of the lowest rated bots.

Tengo el mismo problema. Jugando contra Zara (850) en la web puedo ganarle fácilmente porque comete errores. En Android, Zara acaba conmigo en muy pocos movimientos. Hay una diferencia abismal entre las dos plataformas en el nivel del juego del mismo boot.

I'm on the verge of deleting the app for this reason

Same here. The 250 elo bot plays with 90%+ accuracy all the time and almost never blunders.

How is this not fixed yet? is this more complicated than an API call that includes a parameter for a strength?

I updated to v4.2.7-googleplay-210478 earlier and one of the low level bots hung a piece in the first 19 moves, so it should be fixed.

Do you know what the release schedule is?  Looking forward to update going live.  Thanks.

Staff said it was released to beta yesterday and should be working its way through regular release today.

Yea, Martin is now destroying me. I'm not great but when i take my time i can be decent and every game i get crushed by the low bots. At least i am not the only person this is happening to.
