    My rating is still provisional but i've lost one game & won nine. My rating went from 1200 to 1578 as i won my first few games, reaching 4 - 0. However, I have won my last two games & my rating is being reduced! What? These are against opponents who are sometimes much lower but that is far from a reason to reduce my rating when I win! & that is my only guess as to why this is happening, as until this point I haven't restricted the ratings of my opponents. To conclude: What?

    This is just how it goes at first. As you play more games, your rating will approach where it really should be relative to the other players' ratings.

    If I am not mistaken here I believe you have to play 20 games to get your true rating or what is considered to be true.

    Correct, this is an old one. Good luck. Watch out for Robots.

    The algorithm is designed to prevent a nob from ganging up on 1200 players and winning 20 in a row.

    You noticed that your rating can go down from such a practice. But it is equally true, under certain conditions in the provisional stage, that your rating can go up when you feed on a diet of 2000 players.

    Play some games with Black, and play a few 1800+ players. Your rating will stabilise in due course.

    @The-Effect-of-logic

    and by 'black' he means jack black
    and by 1800 players, he means 3800 players

    and never play against the rookie
    you will get a negative rating, never before seen
