Lower tactics ratings on Androidu

  • #1


    I seem to get lower rated tactics problems when i play tactics on my Android Device. See my stats, on 15 Feb i played some tactics on my Android Device and all problem ratings where below 1000 while my own rating was around 1200.

    This happens a lot so i stop playing tactics on my phone now, the website does not have this problem, there i always get tactics around my rating level.

    Serphiot, I'm sorry for the delay. Are you still experiencing this? Looking at your stats, you've played a lot of tactics since 15 Feb so I can no longer see the problems from that day. 

    When you are playing via the Android are you using the app? Will you let me know which version, please?

    Hi Calomondin,

    I am using the App yes, it is version 2.0.13 the latest version i think.

    I have played some tactics on the App just now, on the site i get always problems around my rating on the App a lot with a rating much less. Some are 400 points below my rating!

    Thanks for looking into this.

    I'm experiencing the same issue. Tactics puzzle I get in the android app are far below my current tactics rating and so every time I fail I drop my rating a lot, while improving it's a very slow process as I only get a few points (in the order of 3-5) when winning a puzzle. It's a known issue of the app or does exist a workaraound?

    No workaround as far as i know, hope that they solve this cause that function in the Android App is worthless now.

    So glad to read this - I thought I was going crazy! Still no resolution?  I would love to be able to use the TT on my phone/tablet yet have a consistency of rating between them and the PC to better gauge my progress: I don't care what the number is so long as it is consistent within all TT activity, regardless of platform.

    This is interesting observation. Has there been a resolution or explanation?
