    I was playing a game and i noticed my experience had decreased about 200.

    Could you please tell me why this is?

    Experience = rating?

    FAQ

    Until you get 20 games, some wild and strange things can happen to your rating.

    You shouldn't have used the Sword of Destiny to defeat the Black Dragon in the Master's chamber on the 5th level of the dungeon.

    During your provisional status and you play against someone far inferior than yourself, then you sometimes lose points. The rating appears to be erratic.
    A good advice is to play against opponents with your own extimated strength or above.

    On chess why does my experience go up and down for no reason?

    Play more games against this guy User 432581. So far you have played 4 games against him and he has resigned 4 times without making a move.

    Read the FAQ.
    And stop playing with hardassgangster - he'll do you and your rating no good.

    You have played only 8 rated games. Until you reach 20 your rating is of no significance. Games with less than 3 moves are unrated.

    Yes. And more than likely the "two of you" will get banned from the site.

    This was previously answered hardassgangs... wait. Carrotcruncher.
    I was going to say I liked the deep positional play in the 6 Carrotcruncher vs. Hardassgangster games. Very educational.
