    I felt hurt yesterday because i lose 200 score of my rates..i noticed since before that my time is moving faster than my playmates..& when i played 200 ratings under than me & i lose the game, my rates minus 11points or 12points but when i win, i got only 4 points, too much unfair! i really love playing chess but i am not idiot!

    This forum is certainly portraying you as an idiot.

    Of course if you lose to a lower rated player you are gonna lose more points than when you win. They do this so that 2000s won't beat up on 1000s for rating points-If 2000s lose to 1000s it is -20 points...therefore by your logic if they win than it would be fair to give them 20 points. You are supposed to beat lower rated players so there shouldn't be as much of a reward if you lost to said lower rated player. Same thing with playing higher rated players...if you win you gain more points than you lose. It is a perfectly fair system.

    then give them the players at the same equal ratings so they can get at same points too..& that's what we called fair games..

    & most of my playmates are under than my rates..why is that?

    sometimes people want a challenge.... a 1200 may accept a 1500 players open challenge because of the experience gained.

    If you only want to play against people very close to your own rating, then do this by changing the rating options for your seeks (e.g. set -50 to +50 or similar).

    You'll notice if you play with someone with equal rating as you  (at least for me...the numbers may be different for you) will gain 8 points for winning...no points for a draw and will lose 8 points for a loss.

    Is it possible to change the rules during the bullet/blitz games ?
    For example: you play unrated, but change that in rated, when you think you win the game.   It's just an question.

    analyze ur writtings Mr. fred..then back to ur questions

  • #13

    If you play higher rated chess players than you, you gain a much more points. If you play lower rated chess players, then the more points will be take if you lose.

    Ridiculing less experienced players is more likely to make one look like an idiot among other things...
