I have just received rating points equivalent to a win, for a game in progress against a (now) banned player. The player is Tension 84 for those that may wish to research the point below.
Personally I dont care about these points, as the guy was a computer and I would have been happy with none and the game just being removed.
However I think I have found an anomaly. Hold the abuse if this has been discussed previously - I haven't checked!
The guys rating was 2200 something, and it seems it depends on which of his current games was cancelled first as to how many rating points his opponent got. The first game opponent seems to have got a healthy whack of points, but by the time my game was cancelled (which is recorded as a timeout in this case) he was down to a rating of 1243, so I got only two points.
Is this an anomaly? I would have got 20-odd points had my game been timed out first. To reiterate - I feel no injustice, but just wondered if anyone else had noticed this potential glitch as it seems rating points are being handed out with inequality, which clearly has a knock on for us all in terms of live games etc?
