You are wrong Andreas.
Tie break points update with each completed game, so it makes no difference when the games are completed.
If you with full intention slow and longwaiting tactic you will be on longwaiting rank. Then you earn more points because you play mostly against higher rank player. At my first tournament -new kid on theblock-
12-player we started 6-weeks ago nearly all player finished but only 2-player controls the whole field.
My results of 21/22 games 12W-9L-0D, 84TB-points. 1-open game, rank-4 as a quick-response player.
Player dracksdman 8/22 games 6W-2L-0D, 51TB-points. 14-open games now rank-10 as very slow player.
He play mostly against higher ranking player so he earns more TB-points as all the other. Hat can no alright.
It has to be in the opposite way quick-response should have higher points. So the very complicated calcula-
tion is hidden unfair Rule and to becorrected. It is a rule for timewasting player.
Have a look at the tie break points after all games are completed.
Yours will increase as other games in your group are completed.
It makes no difference when games are finished.
Thanks for your explanations but finally I found out how tie breaks works in the tournament´s rules. It´s true that It´s not easy to manage it although I think now I have a better knowledge about them.
Any way thanks and good luck!
Can someone tell me why i cannot start an inlimited participant tourney...the most it allows for me is 99...thx in advance
what can you do about a guy that uses 71 hours per move in a 3 day move tourney... also, his timer said 1 hour when i went to sleep and when i woke he had 16 hours left? how does that happen? its sooo anoying
how does ur rating system works. it goes from950 to 980 when i win and it reduces when i loose.
Nitin...go to deyails....show rating adjustment.......this will how much you gain or lose for win lose.....it depends how good your opponent is....challenge me...rated match and i will show you a thing or two...if you would like ;-)
I played in the "International U2000 Championship" at Group 13. I can say that they use chess engine when they play with me. If you see the history of the games of the said players, you will know whether they use the m/c or not.
Please try to solve this problem otherwise it will become "Chess Engine Tournament".

MOEK....so how do you stop them using books.....at the end of the day if you arw better than them...they will crumble as soon as you pass the opening moves on the emgine...i sometimes throw in a good but slightly rogue move....which kills them off
Oh i thought you meant the chess.com explorer...no i agree with u the use of chess engines is defeatist to a fair game
Moe: Using an engine is against chess.com rules. But so is "naming and shaming" in the forums. Please use the support tickets to contact staff discreetly and do so only if you can be sure of engine use.
