both are equally important for OTB, but here calculation isn't as crucial, as you can take your time to verify everything. but if you can't spot a tactic, you can't calculate it either.
I signed up for CTS again - I had an old acct. but it seems to be gone.
Anyhow, I forgot how nice CTS is, those tactics are fun to train, and you can see improvement. I'm only rated 1314 on there right now though.
My biggest problem is choosing too fast, and then realizing that I could've got the right move if I waited one or two seconds longer - apparent from my abysmal success rate of appx. 57%.
My acct. is CSBones btw.
