Puzzling Rating Change
« on: 16/06/20, 02:26am »
I just had a draw against an oppo who was slightly higher ranked than I was.
I gained +0.01 points
I began the match at 1695.
After "gaining" 0.01 points, my new rating dropped to 1694.
I tried to attach a screenshot, but got an error.  It says my file size is too large, and I don't remember how to reduce files.

I do understand that the rating points are rounded, and sometimes a rating we see is rounded up.  So I realize that my starting 1695 might have actually been something like 1694.5, or 1694.6 ...etc all the way up to 1694.9

But what I don't understand is how in the world can I add to that original rating and it ends up rounding lower???

Say I was the bare minimum to round up of 1694.5, after the game it would be 1694.6.
1694.6  should still round up to 1695.

Why did the game suddenly round down?
